  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.

    • notification

      Push notifications did not work on the New Workspace preview.
      When I pin a new dashboard in the New Workspace, the app or service did not push any notifications on Power BI, so my colleagues will not know what I've published. Please help to solve this bug. Manually notify them is a stupid action.

      • Allow 'Edit Interactions' for Filters pane, or add new collapsable "Canvas" pane

        I like the new Filters pane, but I think you really want to think about allowing the same kind of "Edit Interactions" for fields in the Filters pane as you do for any other visual.

        Here's why: I would dearly like to ditch slicers from a report in favour of the Filters pane in order to free up precious screen real-estate, but often slicers are set up so that they only filter *some* things and not others, whereas things in the Filters pane are global, as far as I can tell.

        I was hoping that the filters pane was going…

          • 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.

            • Dynamic column name update in dashboard/reports

              When ever the field/column name will be changed/updated in the source. The same should be updated automatically with the next refresh in the data model as well as in all the objects we have used in reports/dashboards. This facility is available in QlikView.

              • 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?

                • Email Subscription Snapshots Image Quality and Size

                  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…

                      • Conditional visibility of a visual

                        It would be so useful having an option to make visibility of an object conditional.

                        • Filter type

                          Include the Filter type to the new filter that introduced in November 2018 update. So the report can be displayed in date that pre-filtered in the 'Relative date filtering', and the report users can also have the option to use the 'Advanced filtering' to see information in specified period.

                              • Ability to adjust column width for column charts with continuous x-axis

                                When using a continuous X axis, one cannot modify the column's width. If the series used has a value for each hour, the columns can be super thin.

                                Please add a setting for modifying the column's width or inner padding, for column charts that have a continuous x-axis.

                                • 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.

                                    Can we please have the 'Reset To Default' option which is currently only available in reports to be also made available to the dashboard. That should be active when shared with end users.

                                    • Create Dashboard Permission

                                      It would be great if Read-only users (or a new user type) could create their own dashboards by pinning existing visuals from reports without providing them permission to edit the report.

                                      In my experience we don't provide our clients with edit access so every time they need a new dashbord they request it to us which becomes a time consuming activity given the volume of clients and reports.

                                      • Grey out visuals while loading data

                                        It's very important for users to know when data has been refreshed, following a selection they made. In August 2018 Server version, it seems that the spinner in the upper left corner of each visual only works sometimes, meaning often users have no idea whether the visual has new data or not. At the very least, the spinner should be fixed. But better still would be to grey out the visuals until the new data has loaded.

                                        Apologies if I've missed something obvious. Many thanks to the great Power BI community!

                                        • Ability to Float Panes

                                          Allow the ability to 'float' the panes (Selection, Bookmarks, Fields, etc) to allow more screen space to the main page.

                                          When working with larger reports, it's sometimes necessary to have all of these panes available, but then the visuals become smaller making it difficult to work with them.
