  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!

          • NO MORE VISUAL HEADERS

            The user should be able to do every action with a right click on the visual, or just make it visible only when you select a visual, but not when you hover over it. They shouldn't take up space when you are not using them, even in Power BI Desktop.

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • Make the dashboard more customizable, or make the pinned report pages more functional.

                  Make the dashboard more customizable or make the pinned report pages more functional. I need to be able to make my dashboard as visually appealing and dynamic as a report page--IE, I want to be able to make the pinned visuals whatever size I need, I want to be able to change the color elements of an individual tile, etc. Alternately, a more user-friendly, functional pinned report page would work--a way to create a single, user-friendly button to take viewers to a report (and a specific report page!), a better sizing tool (right now the pinned pages snap to large…

                  • 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.

                    • Dashboard subscription emails should wait until all visualizations are fully loaded before taking the screen capture

                      Dashboard subscription emails are inconsistent: For the same dashboard subscription, some subscribers have fully loaded visualizations while others get an email full of half-loaded visualizations. Comparing the timestamps at the bottom of the subscription emails, some people are getting the subscription emails for the same exact dashboard just 12 seconds later -- those are the folks that are getting properly loaded content in their emails. Others had emails that were full of half-loaded visualizations.

                      • Pin multiple visuals to dashboard

                        Our company is developing dashboards to our customers to be displayed on TV screens. Ever since, we do struggle and waste a lot of time pinning each visual on the dashboard. It would be really convenient to pin multiple visuals to dashboard. For instance, you could select visuals and the corresponding dashboard to be pinned to.

                        Time-saving idea whilst developing dashboards.

                        • When Power BI Report Server can be same good as Power BI Service on Azure?

                          Please put Power BI Report Server into a strategic product development position
                          Compared to Power BI service, Power BI Report Server is obviously lagged on product development. Compared to other products like Tableau, Qlik Sense etc, MSFT moves very slowly on advancing Power BI Report Server development which is very very bad, also does not demonstrate OPEN attitude.
                          Lots of companies used SSRS to build reports and dashboards before, but SSRS cannot meet modern reporting requirements any more. Competitive tools like Tableau, Qlik etc are becoming more and more popular and attractive in today's BI architecture as MSFT cannot really…

                          • legend sorting, let there be options like value or alphabet! Please!!

                            It would be super if there was a drop down option in the legend visualization where you could right click and have options to either sort by alphabetical or sort by values, or sort by custom and you could manually rearrange how you want your legend to sort. This is a must! We need this please!!

                                  Currently it can only be done by number, which is less useful as the number of items in my data may change.

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