  3. Sectioning the area to analyze charts of interests

    Sectioning the areas to analyze charts of interests

    Sectioning the area to analyze charts of interests. (ex. qualitative, quantitative, impact, etc analysis)--good if drilling down also align to the interest on analysis. (At the moment all the charts are changing upon a selection made)

  4. Sharing Dashboard charts - Create once, use many!

    It would be nice if the user can create the chart tiles and share them so that they can be used directly in other dashboards created by the same user or other users (Similar to sharing Power Query datasets I think!)

  6. When I share a dashboard, please cc me.

    When I share a dashboard, it's sent by Power BI for Office 365 [mailto:no-reply@powerbi.com]. Therefore I have no record that I sent it. Could you cc me on the mail, like SharePoint does?
    Applies to Power BI service and the iPad app.

  7. Replicon Time Tracking

  8. Embed reports into number visualizations

    The possibility to embed a report into the visualization of a number created with the “Ask a question about the data on this dashboard” feature, so that the user would be able to click on the number, and visualize the respective report.

  9. office

    We need to be able to publish resulting Reports/Dashboards from Power BI into SharePoint Online (in O365 plan).
    For the time being Power BI sites in Project Online SharePoint Sites are only accepting Excel files for instance.

  10. Power View Options to Control Warnings and Information

    It would be useful to have options to control whether (and what) warning icons / messages are displayed in user- (as opposed to design-) mode.

    At the moment, warning messages appear above the visualization controls when, for example, not all data can be displayed. These look scary as if "something has gone wrong", particularly in a pre-sales presentation scenario.

    I think the newer half-triangle, warning icon approach is a step in the right direction on this, but should be toned down so that the messages are less in your face and more discrete. Maybe changing them to information icons (or…

  11. reorder dashboard reports in left hand window

    If we end up with many dashboards, it would be good to be able to reorder them in left hand window based (i.e. click, drag and drop.) also perhaps sorting them alphabetically?

  12. Connect two data sources by key

    It would be great to query and compare two (or more) different data sources by a unique key, such as email address or phone number. This would make Power BI incredibly powerful.

  13. Make Grids Interactive

    in Powerview the grids should be interactive. If I have selected a value in a grid, the rest of the view should get filtered. This could be designed in such a way that interactivity is optional.

  14. Dashboard as tiles on Windows and Windows Phone

    Wouldn't it be graet to be if we cuuld at least place key figres as tiles at phones, tablets and in Windows 8/10?
    In my view, this would give a great selling point to our tile basecd OS on phones, tablets etc, if we could connect tiles to our BI data, and have these tiles automatically updated.
    Now with app folders, it could be great to have to opportunity to open an app folder, and be able to se key figures, colored in red and green. Just like we in MSN Money app can tile stock prices to tiles, and…

    Hi there. At present, the app refreshes on the following triggers –
    • When the app goes from background to foreground (i.e. switch between apps).
    • Manually (pull to refresh).

    Do you need it to refresh more regularly than that, or on other triggers?

  18. When "numbers" change in dashboard, it must be fluid

    when users play around, they see awesome animations w.r.t pie graphs, bar charts, line charts etc.

    Can we do the same for the numbers (text object which depicts the summary value). for eg. when 9 changes to 15 it should not be abrupt. you should see the animation of changes from 9 to 15. that gives a good visual presence that numbers changed

    Hi Pradeep. Can you please elaborate on this suggestion? What do you mean be a multiple series chart? You can add many series to a chart already – drop a field into the ‘Legend’ box to create a series. You can use the ‘Combo chart’ chart type to show series with very different values too.

    Can you please create another suggestion for ‘Dynamic Expression’ and add some detail there too? That way we can track the importance of both of these ideas!

    Thank you!

  20. Add the date range or criteria to the tile and filter based on date dynamically

    The tiles should display the time period of the data within... and either being able to change the timeframe on a tile or on the entire dashboard.
    This is a big concern for me in Salesforce Reporting. I want to be able to perhaps look at activity on one page that might show 90 days, 180, and 365 for example.
