  1. Lock axis values

    While there is functionality to 'show items with no data' to lock axis values this does not work where there is not an entry i.e. you at least need a zero for the entry. This does not work well when you want to retain the original data and not use measures so that the 'see records' feature is still available. For example, in my chart the x-axis is categorical and the y-axis is a count of unique ids. I want to keep it in this format to allow for the 'see records', but when filters are applied such as to…

      • alerts

        The recently updated Dashboard Alert Email no longer maintains the Percentage formatting on values stored as decimals. For example, the "Current value:" is displayed as 0.0009 instead of 0.09% as it is displayed on the card on the dashboard.

        • Mouse swipe selection should result selection of objects in dasbhoard

          In powerpoint, there is a provision of mouse/keypad swipe selection of objects which is quite helpful to arrange things instead of selecting each one of them. This is a pain and time consuming affair.

          • Pin tile from App

            My team creates reports and puts them into various Apps so that we can share data among different teams. We have seen that due to the fact that reports in Apps are "read-only", people cannot pin the tiles to their own dashboards. We do not want to grant edit permissions, so we think that people should be able to pin to their own dashboards even if the reports are read-only.

            • One setting to adjust text for all items in visual

              Currently if i use matrix visual and if i need to increase font size i need to adjust each item like row header, column header, value, etc separately. Can't you give option to select any visuals and set the font size for ALL items of that visual rather doing individually for each on them which is time consuming.
              This can be similar to workbook level formatting in Tableau.

              • Data Segmentation (Slicer) in full-screen visual

                It would be interesting to have the option to keep data segmentation (slicer) or filters when the visuals were in full screen.
                Example: I have a page with billing information, this is filtered by year segmentation, while displaying the full screen view, keep this segmentation to be used to filter the data.

                • Take a snapshot of dashboard when posting the Dashboard Comment

                  Ability of taking a snapshot on the Dashboard at the time of posting the dashboard comment. This will be useful since the dashboards are refreshed would be great to have this feature under dashboard comments.

                  • Dashboard

                    Slice across pinned visuals with common value versus merely pinning live pages. I have a set 7 or 8 data sets generated from different systems, reported and pinned to a dashboard. Each data set has a common field, which is currently included as a slicer on the page. Instead of slicing each tile individually, I want to slice all of them for which the field is available.

                    • Alternar ABAS no Power BI on line

                      Olá, seria muito importante que fosse possível alternar entre as ABAS dos relatórios de Power BI.
                      Hoje improvisamos com uma extensão do navegador, criando várias abas e alterando entre elas, porém isso como disse é um improviso e não é nativo do BI.

                        • increase space between title and visualization

                          There could be an option to increase padding between Title and Visualization. Currently the title looks stuck to the body of the viz.

                                Add to the right click menu a option to pin to dashboards. So users don't need to have edit privileges to do that.

                                  • My suggestion is to put a scroll bar to navigate between the tabs, it becomes tiring to have to stay squeezing next what also pairs is to in

                                    Hello everyone. I am Brazilian and I am a beginner in the use of the tool and I am impressed with the fluidity that the program works with the data besides the beauty of the presentation. My suggestion is to put a scroll bar to navigate between the tabs, it becomes tiring to have to stay squeezing next what also pairs is to increase the size of the text or number. I appreciate the opportunity.

                                    • Can we bind 2 components (Ex: Oval Shape and Card) together so that If we move It should move together?

                                      Hello All,

                                      I am using a Card to display total number and putting this card on top of an Oval shape to give a nice look. While designing If I have to move these 2 components to other location on design pan, I have to move them 1 by 1. These is any way these 2 can be bind together so that If we move them they should move together?

                                      I am using Destop Version Version: 2.61.5192.601 64-bit (August 2018)

                                        Perhaps a search field option could be designed and added to visuals that have a lot of data in case someone wishes to do a keyword search.

                                        • Let admins delete comments in APP

                                          With commenting a great new feature was released. But when the dashboard is sitting in an APP, only the author is able to delete the comment again. The admin has no way of deleting anything (only in the workspace!).

                                          This is needed as otherwise, the thread of discussions in APPs will gron indefinitely.
