Currently the drill through functionality to another report doesn´t seem to work correctly for Live connections. The first time works, but when going back and changing the drill through, the target report doesn´t refresh automatically. This is confusing for end users, because you don´t always realize that the data have not been refreshed. The Power BI support team acknowledged this problem and proposed I create a ticket in the "Idea" category. It seems more like a bug to me then anything else, but hereby the idea to make the drill through to another report functionality always refresh the target report after the filters have been passed through.
This ticket refers to the following issue;

We’ve fixed this issue now and are rolling out the fix this week. If you don’t see it working yet, you should see it by next week.
The current bookmarking feature requires report creators to define bookmarks. Ideally, users would be able to save personalized bookmarks (similar to web browser) in addition to the author's pre-defined bookmarks.
For example, I might have a project management report or sales by stores. Each user of the report may have their own set of projects or stores that they want to quickly navigate between. These are relevant to the current users and not other users of the reports.1,149 votes
Thank you for all for being patient. I’m excited to announce that we’re bringing personal bookmarks to all reports in the Power BI service. It’s started to roll out today – check out my blog for more details: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-personal-bookmarks-in-the-power-bi-service/
The current drill through capability does not appear to consider an active filter/slicer value for a visual unless the dimension being filtered is included in the parent visual. I think it would be helpful if it did.
For example; a table of customers subject to a slicer for specific stores should pass on both the customer and store values if these dimensions are both listed as drill through filters.868 votes
As of the May 2018 release of Power BI Desktop you can now define your drillthrough to ‘Keep all filters’ which will apply the selections from slicers and other visuals to the target page as well.
PowerPoint Export to take into account filters that have been applied to the report prior to export. This is essential for users which need to filter on historic dates and then wish to export the report with those details.1,480 votes
Hello everyone, we’re happy to announce we’ve shipped this long awaited feature – read more about it here on the PowerBI.com blog -
The app workspaces don’t seem to work with Microsoft teams when you try to embed a report. In Microsoft teams I can embed a Power Bi Report. When I try to do so it only finds Workspaces that are the old version but when I create a "NEW" app workspace and then publish reports to that workspace, I can't embed these. Do they plan on fixing this?4 votes
We just shipped a new version of the tab that addresses this idea. Read about it here:
Extend the email subscription feature, currently in public preview, to enable subscribing others to email snapshots of reports.

We released this feature today for Power BI – check out the blogpost discussing how to take advantage of this new functionality – https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/subscribe-others-to-email-subscriptions-in-power-bi/
As much as I like the new Drillthrough actions, it seems a bit lacking in that it does not also pass through any report filters that are active on the source report on the source report.130 votes
As of the May release of Desktop this is now supported! All filters (report, page, visual, slicers and cross-highlighting) can be passed through to the detail page.
Thanks for voting!
Extend the existing email subscription feature to allow me to specify exactly when the email is sent out - e.g. send me the email at 2pm every Monday.

Users that consume Power BI reports with keyboard navigation (including screen readers) can tab through the visuals on a report page, but the tab order seems to be the order in which the visual was placed on the page by the report designer. So if I make a page and put two charts on the bottom row, a title text box at the top left, and a table on the top row, that is the tab order. I would like to be able to change a property to make the tab order go from title to table to chart 1 on bottom row to chart 2 on bottom row. This would make the report more accessible/inclusive and allow me to guide the keyboard user through the story/information in the appropriate order.

The December release of Power BI Desktop has a ton of accessibility improvements, and control over the focus order is one of them. You can set this within the selection pane.

More flexible Conditional Formatting in Tables and matrixes.
The current color customization in tables is very limiting. I need more than 3 color choices.
I should be able to add multiple values and assign colors to each.407 votes
Since the creation of this idea back in 2016, we have added much more flexibility to conditional formatting.
Two particularly powerful updates include…
Format based on rules: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-november-2017-feature-summary/#conditionalFormatting
Format based on another column: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#conditionalFormatting
Of course we will continue adding even more functionality to conditional formatting, but this idea now to generic to be useful. There are many specific conditional formatting ideas on this site, so please, if we are still missing something you need, vote on it so we can continue to add valuable updates for you!
Without control over spacing of columns and bars, data labels can overlap each other and aesthetically, the chart looks cramped.
Please add a configurable spacing parameter like the "gap width" in Excel charts to allow for better visual control.482 votes
Under the x-axis card in the formatting pane, you have several settings that can help with this.
Minimum category width lets you force the bars to be wider, enabling more readable data labels (but more scrolling).
Maximum size lets you increase the percentage of the visual the axis labels will take up, which can make the visual more readable if the labels are long.
And finally inner padding controls the gap between the bars in proportion to the bar size.
Using a combination of these features to enable to you make the labels on your visuals readable.
I have a large set of options from which I would like to pick some specific ones and use them in a slicer to filter my data.
Currently, this is not possible while it is an implemented feature for other chart types.
I'm currently using a 100% stacked column chart as a workaround.2,798 votes
I’m happy to say this is now complete! In the June 2019 release of Power BI Desktop you’ll see you can set visual level filters on slicers. There’s one known issue where applying a measure filter to a slicer in range mode causes the visual to show an error. We’ll release a fix in an interim update before the July release.
Thanks for your patience and your votes, everyone!
I would like to group visuals, textboxes and shapes to create custom features and presentations in the reports.1,013 votes

Export a report directly in Excel (not only via csv file)1,142 votes
Exporting to Excel from Power BI is supported. You have two options for exporting your data to Excel:
- Once you publish to the Power BI service, you can export your data to Excel by clicking on the … button for any visual. See more info here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-export-data/
- You can use the Analyze in Excel feature to connect directly to your model in Excel: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-analyze-in-excel/
The ability to configure a slicer to only be able to select one attribute at a time - similar to a radio button. I would like to disable the ability for people to either choose select all or choose multiple slicers.1,422 votes
Hi everyone! The slicer now supports a radio button mode too, with real single-select behaviour. You’ll see updated options in the property pane that let you control this. Thanks for your patience and feedback!
As has been partly implemented with Filters, it would be very useful to have slicers that could apply to all pages of a report. This would allow users to interact more easily.4,681 votes
The most exciting news so far this year! In the February release of Power BI Desktop we’ve shipped the ability to synchronize slicers on different pages in your report! You can read more about how the feature works here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-february-2018-feature-summary/#syncSlicers
Thanks again for everyone’s feedback and votes on this feature. We do listen to you so keep voting and let us know what other things you need us to prioritize.
The ‘Full Screen mode’ could become more useful for presenting reports on dedicated large screens if it became just a bit more dynamic. Whilst it is currently possible to scroll through report sheets by clicking the arrows in the bottom right corner, it would be most valuable to be able to automate such browsing. A solution could be to introduce a “Play” button that starts a slideshow scrolling through the available report sheets according to a customizable time interval.2,668 votes
This is now available in the Windows Power BI app! Check out the details here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/enhancing-presentation-mode-with-slideshow-in-windows-power-bi-app/
Ability to turn off tooltip and ability to remove the default tooltip (ie the columns used to create the visual).369 votes
As some people have already noted in the comments, we’ve actually shipped this feature already! It was included as part of our July update to Power BI Desktop. You can read all about it in our blog: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-july-2018-feature-summary/#tooltips
And of course, if you have any other feature suggestions, please make sure to vote on them.
I need to have the possibility to add conditional formatting in Matrix chart as we can do in Cross table in Excel.
We’ve added support for conditional formatting on the matrix visual in the November release of Power BI Desktop. To learn more, check out our blog post: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-november-feature-summary/
