  1. drop down for FY

    include a FY drop down. Currently we only see months over 3 fiscal years which makes it difficult, if you want a quick view on a given period

  3. group

    create a possibility to group images, shapes, bottons and charts. This would allow to create a composition of objects that could easily move or copy altogether

  6. Set Visualisation(s) Height and Width to a percentage of page's height and width

    It would make a very quick and easy way to create evenly sized visualisations to fit the size of the page if you could set the width to 50% or even 25% for example.

  7. Filter wells by basin

    It would be useful to be able to filter wells in WellMaster by basin and/or sub-basin as filtering just by country produces an enormous number of wells in many cases. It should be possible to combine the geographic co-ordinates and the Equinor basin outlines to create such a filter.

  8. Scenario Building

    Not sure if this is possible on PBI currently. But I am using a forecasting model which I want to integrate with user free form inputs for setting up discount scenarios. I dont see how a user can plan some price discount scenarios and work with my model to show results.

  10. Unable to use row level security in On-Prem PowerBi when sharing Dashboard with external users

    Currently, we are unable to use row level security in Power BI when sharing dashboards with external users when Power BI is connected to an on premise SSAS model. The only workarounds provided by Microsoft are:

    Create mirror users for the external B2B users on your Active Directory instances, map the mirror users to the external users in the gateway, and then grant the required permissions to the SSAS cube to the mirror users.
    Move to Azure Analysis Services, where B2B is supported.

    We would like for Microsoft to provide an option to allow external users to access Power BI…

  11. Date Table

    Hi -

    I might be missing a very easy way to do this, but I couldn't find it online after multiple searches. You guys need to fix your date labeling in PowerBI. It is too complicated and has duplicative information.

    You should easily be able to jump and down from Year to Quarter to Month and have simplified labeling in the visualizations so that you're not repeating unnecessary info like showing the year 2x. For example, in a perfect world, i'd like to see:

    2018 / 2017 / 2016
    Q1-18 / Q2-18 / Q3 -18 / etc
    Jan-18 / Feb-18…

  14. Power BI Home: Theming

    We have themes in Dashboards and reports but not Power BI Home. Would be great to have this added to the backlog. That way we can align the Home experience with the rest of the look and feel of our reports and dashboards (incl logo, text tiles for links etc.)

  15. Dropdown lists should not be limited by the width of a slicer

    When there are multiple slicers in a line, we can only see the first half contents from the dropdown list.
    The dropdown list should be the same width as the text length not the width of the slicer.

    Please refer to https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Dropdown-list-not-show-entire-content/m-p/563932#M266079

  17. Can we please have the 'Reset To Default' option which is currently only available in reports to be also made available to the dashboard.

    Can we please have the 'Reset To Default' option which is currently only available in reports to be also made available to the dashboard. That should be active when shared with end users.
    Thanks Aspi.

  18. Buttons - click to web page. Open in the same Browser

    When you click on a visual on your dashboard you go through to the reports,

    From there I can drill through and click back to the main report again.

    But going back to the dashboard isnt set up very well

    If you click on the dashboard name in the bread crumb trail at the top you are taken out of the reports to the main page so you have to click the dashboard again.

    I tried adding a button to the report, Back to main menu but this opens up the dashboard into another browser page and there is no…

  19. Bookmarks to remember formatting of visuals

    I would like a bookmark to remember the formatting settings of a visual.

    My circumstance involves having a bar chart with a slicer. If I set specific "Start" and "End" values on the X axis of a bar chart, they won't be remembered with the Bookmark if I then change those values for a bar chart with filtered data.

    If these formatting parameters can be remembered with the bookmark, then I will be able to use the same visual for all slices of my data, with the axis width adjusting to the desired settings for each bookmark.

  20. Add a dashboard using the Validation Schedule as a source

    A Validation Dashboard is highly recommended for ease of checking the status of TQ's progress towards the 100% target over 5 years set by ASQA.

    I currently produce a report for internal stakeholders. It will also be a useful tool for Product Portfolios and the Academic Board to easily see the status of the validation of qualifications.

    A Validation Schedule spreadsheet is the source and is in SPOT.

    Currently, I report this data to North Executive and the Regional Academic Committee. Each month I download a copy of the Validation Schedule from SPOT and insert a pie graph pivot chart…
