  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!

      • 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.

            • Enable Power BI Titles to Wrap Text!

              Enable the Titles on visuals (for example, the KPI and column charts) to wrap text.

              • Protecting Excel generated from PowerBI

                Excel has been a great tool for analyzing data. PowerBI provides a means of exporting the data to Excel. However with data leaks becoming a growing concern. 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…

                • 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.

                      • Custom Tooltip in Embedded

                        Custom Tooltips do not currently work in the Embedded application.
                        Would very much appreciate seeing this functionality carried through into the embedded side.

                        • Number unit for different countries

                          I think the unit for numbers ,such as thounsand/billion/ million should be changed for different countries. In China ,we usually use thousand千/10thousand 万/ 100thousand十万/0.1billion亿.
                          These will be more easier for Chinese users. maybe there will be same problem for other countries.

                          • Undo option for PowerBI Dashboards

                            A lot of times, while moving the tiles in a large powerbi dashboard, tiles get wrongly placed and all the layout goes bad as powerbi automatically moves all the tiles below. Needed a quick option to revert the changes back as people have to redo all the original work .

                              • Single Data Point Selection for each part of a graph/chart

                                Split out the data labels on the Line and Clustered Column chart, or any chart would be EXTREMELY helpful! All my data points are too close together. I honestly just wanted the percentage data points to show on the line part of the graph and not anywhere else. Can this be added to the next Power BI Desktop update? Give the option on where data points are turned on (i.e., line, bar1, bar2, etc.).

                                • Button with link

                                  On each repport, we can put buttons like informations, Q&A.. It would be appropriate to connect each buttons to the source data folder.
                                  For which purpose ? When a employee of my enterprise consult the Dashboard, he have a macroscopic sight of my data. If he want to see in détails the data source and if he don't want to look for in his personnal server, a click on a button , which can bring him to the source, could be more dynamic and intutive.

                                  Best regards
                                  David

                                  • Create Power BI Dashboards Text tiles with changeable background colors

                                    Allow Power BI Dashboard Text tiles to support changeable background colors. This is highly desired for banners for easy classification and readability.

                                    There should also be support for image tiles to be fill-able in their boxes such that there is no white space that will class with the background of the Dashboard

                                    • Keep guage size the same, regardless of target call out

                                      When a guage visual is used the option for a target value call out is great! However, depending on where the value falls on the guage, will change the size, and placement of the chart. It would be awesome if the target call out did not change the size of the graph.
