  1. copy data to clipboard

    Copy Data to Clipboard should be a simple right-click context menu capability --- as it has been in Tableau for years. Often, user wants data being displayed without going through export to CSV and import into Excel. Just simple copy-paste of data out of visual to clipboard to ... whatever intended ... is extremely useful.

    • Button that updates datasets and dashboard

      We'd like to have a button that you can put on your dashboard in order to trigger a dataset/dashboard refresh. That way we can always work with the latest data.
      We have configured the scheduled update but it is not quite working out for us.
      Thank you!

        • Commercial Me Dashboard should show customer verbatim for the surveys

          Commercial Me Dashboard should show customer verbatim for the surveys, as we had it in CDP.
          It would help for improving our services.

          • Allow a pinned visual to be connected to either a page or a bookmark

            Currently, when you pin a visual to a dashboard and you click on that visual it returns to the page from which it originated. However, with the advent of Bookmarks, it is becoming increasingly common to connect bookmarks to buttons on that page with each button showing different visuals for that page. It would be nice when a visual on a dashboard is clicked, the user is sent to the Bookmark from which it originated. This could be an option at pin time.

              • Automatic update of Pinned Live Pages

                A dashboard that is based on a pinned live page is not automatically updated when the dataset is updated.

                Automatic update of Pinned Live Pages should be implemented as a feature.

                    • Bookmarks on BI Service at Dashboard level

                      Loving the new bookmarking feature, however working within an organisation where Power BI has just been introduced the majority of our dashboards are pinned reports to dashboard level. It would be AMAZING if the bookmarks (linked to images) worked on the dashboard level.

                      If you can pin an entire report and the interactive visuals work, logic dictates that any image-based bookmarks should also work. Also adding bookmarks to filters would be heaven.

                      I appreciate that bookmarks are in preview but would welcome any indication of further bookmark developments?

                      • export published data to xlsx (on-premise webportal)

                        Please add the ability to export published dashboards/reports/tiles to an Excel xslx file.

                        We need data from tables/matrix tiles and also the graph tiles in excel for user specific changes.

                        • Adding an extensive filter function to the Dashboard Tiles

                          It would be great to add an extensive filter function to the dashboard tiles. We're streaming live data and want to build multiple big reports. The disadvantage is that the dashboards based on those reports are displayed in microscopic size on mobile devices. We could solve this problem with the tiles, but they are currently still very spartan in terms of their user-friendliness.

                              To allow for filtering and sorting using the header row in visuals such as table and matrix. This would work in the same way you can sort and filter in Excel.

                                  The email subscription feature is great where the user will get the snapshot of the dashboard/report in the email.

                                  However, I noticed that the image is low quality and appear small in the email content. It will be great if the user is allow set the preferences on the image quality and size in the email content.

                                  Currently, it's too small and low quality to be really useful, and this is a frequent requests from many of my customers. Though I tell them that it's supported but they are let down later by the usefulness of it due to the…

                                  • Data Colours.

                                    Lock colours on certain data catagories in order to prevent colour clashes upon refresh. For example when producing a dashboard that contains an overview of competitors across the region; there are some major competitors which one would compete against in a number of markets; it would be useful to assign these competitors a colour. However, when the data looks at different markets, suddenly you get colour clashes which makes it more difficult to interpret data. This makes it harder to drive consistent visuals.

Since there is a feature in PowerBI to export the data to Excel, if appropriate rights are not applied to the Excel coming out of PowerBI, there is a potential of data leak (could be malicious or unintentional). There is no means of applying IRM either OOB or through APIs to Excel files automatically while the Excel is generated on the PowerBI side.I was hoping to see if something can be done about…

                                        • Multi Workspace Dashboard

                                          Create a global dashboard with Pin's from reports on multiple workspaces. That dashboard could be stored on "My Workspace".

                                          Because Apps is 1:1 relation with workpaces we end up creating a workspace for RH, Operations, Finantials and it's hard to create a dashboard with KPI's / Measures from all those areas.
