  1. Show selected color when formatting

    It would help to see the exact color that is selected on a visual (for example a button).
    A similar function to what the Microsoft Suite has, a selected would have a border/outline around it; therefore making easy to select a color lower or higher than the current colour

        • Add 4th dimension to Scatter / Bubble chart

          It would be great if you could take the circles one step further, and have them broken out by categories. Basically, each circle could be its own mini pie chart. For a simple example, if one bubble was 75% female and 25% male, 1/4 of the circle could be blue, and 3/4 could be pink

                • Auto grab space on power bi report or dashboard

                  suppose I have 3 charts currently which are filling my dashboard or report completely, in future if no. of charts (tiles) vary, plus or minus then the dashboard or report will change accordingly. but with having some option like auto grab space.

                  Currently I have 3 question based on A category, but client says as per data no of questions will vary based on data but same category A. And for every question I am making one chart. And then empty dashboard doesn't look good. If no. of question will go from 5 to 2.

                  I think may be power…

                  • Avoid Message Boxes When Pinning Tiles on Power BI Service

                    Every time a tile is pinned to a dashboard, I get two new message boxes: Pinned to Dashboard and Your data set is ready! They show for every single tile being pinned. This is particularly annoying, and on top of that they can't be closed all at once. Keeping them all under the Notificationslog would be definitely more convenient.

                      • Allow view the description of a field as a tool tip

                        In order to be easy for a user understood the idea of a field, it will be good if we can use a description of a field (from Taubular AS or Data Catalog) as a tool tip in any visualization of Power BI.
                        Is it possible?

                        • lock visualizations and Filters Panels

                          Put restrictions on the report so that external users cannot access the visualization and filters panel for when the dataset includes competition.

                                The "Hide Page" function is only valid for visualisation in Power BI Service. As soon as the user exports the dashboard in PowerPoint, the page appears again... This needs to be fixed! Thank you!

                                    • Alerts - Gauge Charts

                                      Currently you can set alerts for the gauge chart, but if your gauge chart changes frequently (say on a daily basis), this alert can quickly becomes useless.

                                      Idea: Be able to set alert on a gauge chart whether current data is over or under target.

                                      • Custom Tooltip in Embedded

                                        Custom Tooltips do not currently work in the Embedded application.
                                        Would very much appreciate seeing this functionality carried through into the embedded side.

                                          For example for T&C, confidentiality agreement, and unless they click button like "I Agree" they wont' see the dashboard or proceed further.
