  1. Fix the existing desktop application so it doesn't continue to prompt for an update when the current version is already installed.

    My PowerBI instance is always instructing me to update to the current version when the current version is already installed.

  2. Customize Filter Pane per Tab

    Not all filters apply to every tab sometimes. it would be good to be able to customize the Filters per tab. Without looking the ability to sync across tabs. For instance. if tab 1 , 2 and 3 are filtered by country and product Line. Tab 4 should have the ability to hide those filters and display different filters such as region and Product Line gorup. and continue Country and product Line filter from tab 5.

  4. Dashboard Tile - Card Font Size - Streaming Data

    The card font size cannot be adjusted when using a Dashboard Tile. The data is coming from a real time streaming dataset and thus cannot be adjusted in a Power BI Report.

  9. total is missing while exporting the data to csv and Excel

    While exporting the data from the dashboard (Table Visualization) to csv file the Grand Total part is missing in the csv and excel sheet. Apart from that when we are going for print option it’s simply taking the screen-shot of current visual i.e. current page but what we need is that it should print the complete table data including grand total.

  10. Grey out visuals while loading data

    It's very important for users to know when data has been refreshed, following a selection they made. In August 2018 Server version, it seems that the spinner in the upper left corner of each visual only works sometimes, meaning often users have no idea whether the visual has new data or not. At the very least, the spinner should be fixed. But better still would be to grey out the visuals until the new data has loaded.

    Apologies if I've missed something obvious. Many thanks to the great Power BI community!

  11. Data Loading indicator on visuals needs to be more prominant

    Currently it's hard to see if visuals are still loading unless you use specific color schemes that don't blend in wit the little loading wheel. I think it may be better if there is a giant hourglass or spinning wheel over the entire dashboard when items are still loading so it's obvious. Added bonus would be those also showing what percentage the load is at.

  12. DAX Formula bar adjustable/expandable no drop

    Just like MS Excel why can't they make DAX desktop just like that - adjustable/expandable. whenever you type DAX you can't see any visual.

  13. Restricted access to comments in Dashboards

    It would be a great help if it was possible to restrict the access to Dashboard comments based on either row level security or the person you "tag" in the comments. Sometimes we have comments that are only relevant for some employees (for example comments related to sales organization in UK only visible for UK employees) and we don't want these comments to be available for every users.
    Regards,
    Helen

  14. Multi Workspace Dashboard

    Create a global dashboard with Pin's from reports on multiple workspaces. That dashboard could be stored on "My Workspace".

    Because Apps is 1:1 relation with workpaces we end up creating a workspace for RH, Operations, Finantials and it's hard to create a dashboard with KPI's / Measures from all those areas.

  15. Power BI Ventura

    NAFS Dashboard Ventura … when In Ventura and we clear a referral, is there a way you can add a highlight tool so we can mark the ones we completed. Or a check mark... something so we can see what is done and give us the ability to just skip over it.

  16. Security - Setting

    I had just seen your presentation on data security. i have a different suggestion. you already have security for user to view the dashboard, and security for users to export data. But you dont have security on what users can see.
    for example i have two users here, both of them have access to see a particular dashboard. thi s dashboard has two sections, for example regions, one person is from the head office and he can see all the region data, but the other one who is from Europe, should only see his Eurpoean region data. this type of…

  17. Disable request access feature.

    We would like to disable or hide the end user option/ button/ window where they can request access to a dashboard on which they landed after opening a url from a dashboard which is not shared with them.

    All our corporate reports are shared via dashboards via dynamic updated universal (A)AD groups.

    There is no need for end users to request access via the default powerbi request access button. Yet they are able to do so on dashboards which they don't have access to. These requests are sent to the workspaceowner, which doesn't have a emailbox. Endusers are waiting for…

  18. Assign actions to a button tied to Visuals (Example - Extract to Excel)

    Assign actions to a button tied to Visuals (Example - Extract to Excel). The button is tied to the visual. We should be able to use the button property and assign to the visual via a drop down which shows the visual object name. In the action there should be a list of actions which includes properties of the visual. One of the properties is to extract into CSV. Would be great to also extract to excel or powerpoint.
