  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    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?

    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!

  6. 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.

  8. Restate Dashboard Name During Sharing Workflow

    Unless I'm missing it, I would suggest you restate the name of the dashboard that the user is within when they are going to share it out with someone else so they can confirm during this workflow step if they indeed are in the dashboard they really want to share out. I currently do not see this name repeated in this workflow.

    THANKS!
    Anne

  11. Designing Limitations for Dashboards

    Allow more control over Dashboards as it is very limited in how to amend the the layout, sizing and placements.

    Would be nice to have more freedom similar to how reports are built.

  12. Allow to change background color of Live Streaming Dashboard's Tile

    Currently seems there is no option available on dashboard to change Live Tile color / font / background / or any formatting setting. Please add this feature ASAP other wise we have to move to Tableau he has such configuration setting of dashboard tiles.

  13. About the tooltip of the Dashboard tile

    Even if the report tooltip feature is disabled,
    the tooltip becomes enabled when the tile is pinned to the dashboard.
    I want the tooltip to remain disable in this situation.

  14. Month order

    Can see there are lots of requests on this but thought I'd just add another.

    Please make sorting month (or anything) order easier

    If that's not possible please make PowerBI's ability to recognise number values from excel better so I can use a month number column

  16. Hidden content on navigation pane should not be unavailable for linking in the app

    When we hide report/dashboard in navigation pane and have app tile linked to hidden content it is leading to the landing page instead of the content itself.
    Navigation pane should not influence linking on the dashboard itself - we do not want to show all content on the navigation pane, but still want to keep linking funcionality on the App level.

    This is PBI service related bug, on mobile links are working as expected.

  17. Customize splash screen for dashboards

    It would be useful to have the option of a custom splash screen, when a user accesses a dashboard (user must click through the screen before seeing the dashboard). This would enable unique messages to the users such as:
    - legal disclaimers
    - dashboard owner/contact information
    - acknowledgement of data policy
    - documentation

  18. Integrate names in reports with AD information

    Where you have employee names in reports link them with their employee profile including emails and phone numbers. Would love to be able to click a name from a report and pull up a screen with their Skype info to call, email or text them.

  19. Maps integrate two datasets with different refresh rates

    I have a map integrated into a CMMS. Need work order data on the map with limited refresh as it is connected live into a database. Have truck position GPS data. Would like to have these two datasets feeding one map where as the truck data is real time and the work order data only refreshes if the work order dataset changes.
