  2. Add ability to right-click and configure chart to auto-refresh on a timer

    This would be extremely powerful when the data source is an SSAS Tabular model configured in DirectQuery mode!

  3. Chart Link to Report with an Automatically Applied Filter

    My idea is to apply a filter to occur when a chart link is clicked. So when a chart is clicked in the dashboard it then links to the report it has come from but it has a filter applied to what it shows. The person who clicked the link cannot change any filter options but rather it is a prescribed filter.

    Does this seem like a worthy idea?

  4. Allow users to attach other objects to a Power BI dashboard (PowerPoint & Word documents, a Yammer Link).

    It would be extremely useful if users could combine other documents & objects with Dashboard reports. Word/PowerPoint documents could solve a number of issues. A Yammer feed could increase workgroup efficiency.

  6. Share the Rights to Pin Graphics to a Dashboard

    So I would like to give my boss the right to pin graphics himself, according to his needs. Right now only the report owner can do so. It would be nice if I could give him the right to pin for himself, and to let him decide what pinned graphics he can see on his mobile device etc.

  8. Refresh tile log

    A user recently posted about their experience with tile refresh issues. http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Some-dashboard-tiles-not-updating-however-the-underliing-reports/m-p/6946
    It seems as though some tiles don't refresh as soon as the report is refreshed ( this issue is increasingly prevalent when publishing from the desktop application) it would be great if there were a log option in the top right corner of tiles and, when selected, would show the last time the tile was refreshed. I think this would help track down bugs with the tile refresh rates.

  9. Set the access to reports as optional.

    When sharing a dasboard, add the option to select the accessibility level to reports as to ensure that only pertinent data would be shared and that entirety of tiles present in Reports is not visible unless stated so.

  10. Showing KPI in Tile view

    Hi Team,
    Thanks for building a great data insights product. We wants to show KPI (up arrow, down arrow) with the Tile view for YOY amount data which will be more crucial for Executive dashboard perspective.
    Also, if you can give the ability to attach/show image to the post would be great.
    Please let us know as this is one of the priority 1 requirement for one of our premium customer.
    Thanks in advance :)

  12. Ability to export and import Dashboard tiles

    We need a way to export the dashboard pinned tiles, so that we can import that in each environment once I upload the reports again in the environment. Currently we have to manually pin the tiles and the order / size everything gets messed up and has to be manually managed / updated.

  13. Table format in Dashboard

    When you pin a table to the dashboard it seems like all columns receive equal spacing. They should be formatted according to the column size as per the report view. It would be good if this could just be fixed as a two column table, where the first column is a small field, currently looks a bit silly on the dashboard.

  14. Allow me to see who shared a dashboard with me and who the point of contact is

    I have a dashboard in my account that has been shared with me. I want to know more about the dashboard. For example, how was a visualization done, where did the source data come from, etc etc.

    To be able to do that, I need to be able to see who shared the dashboard with me and whoever shared it with me probably has a point of contact they'd refer me to (if not themselves) for follow-up.

    This is crucial for collaboration and evolving the art of PowerBI in a group that isn't necessarily closely working together.

  15. Be able to update a report on a dashboard

    If you want to update a report on a dashboard, currently you have to click the pin button again and it adds the new copy but keeps the old one there. It would be nice if it just replaced the old one.

  19. Tiles for files

    This is and idea inspired by someone asking for tiles that contain just text. I see many reports that not only contains charts and tables, but also explanatory text.

    It would be great to take this to the next level and create tiles that show contents of an Office file (could be Word but also PowerPoint and even Excel). A static preview would be OK, but a tile that is updated when the file changes would be super.

  20. Access other workspaces

    Hi! I can only reach my personal workspace from the app. It would be good to change workspace.
