  1. Display Visualisations / FIlters & Fields side bars when dashboard is open, instead of having to type something in Ask a Question box first

    The visualisation and fields filters should show by default on dashboard screens (or at least have an option to do so), rather than having to strat typing in the Ask a Question box to enable them.

    Many users, particularly those with plenty of Excel experience find it easier to build visualisatiuons this way.

  2. Control usage of MY or ME keyword per report

    Allow the 'MY' or 'ME' keyword to be applied to a specific field per report.

    For example, a report called 'Calls' contains support calls, and has 'Assigned User', 'Affected User' etc. For this report I would like to assign the 'MY' keyword to the 'Assigned User' field. I would then be able, ideally in Cortana, to request 'My Calls' and have only those calls assigned to me displayed.

    At present, the report is looking for any field containing my name, across all known relationships in the model.

    A different report may need to treat 'MY' differently, so I do not…

  6. Create visual to educate teams

    I was at the Data Insights Summit in Bellevue Washington and have never been more excited about the future for data insights being powered by Microsoft. I would really like to have a dashboard for Microsoft product features. This would include a table with every single product feature. Each feature would be indexed with what it makes possible and what it solves. The matrix would have hierarchical color values for the most popular use. All of this would be used to build a matrix with visualizations. The matrix could have live links to all help and educational sources for the…

  7. Improve Quick Insights to work better with Star Schema data warehouses

    Currently, when using a data source with a star schema, Quick Insights will bring back a number of insights about dimension tables that are not helpful (E.g. month correlates to year). It would be beneficial to manually or automatically identify these dimension tables and then not generate insights based upon two or more columns in a single dimension table.

  9. When a column is sorted by another column, this sort should be observed by Q&A

    Currently if you add a helper column to custom sort another column, the custom sort is observed when dragging and dropping fields to build a visualisation, but done when Q&A builds the visualisation.

  13. If you can please quote last modified date on your blogs so that we know how relevent they are.

    I was searching for an article I reached to your blog, but I was not sure how relevant it is to the current version as there was no date there. It will be good if you quote create date, and last modified date to your blog posts

  14. Accurate known issue reporting

    I'm having an issue with PowerBI not working smoothly (web not app). The support site says "no known issues" however, searching my problem gives other with my issue, and others in my org are having the same issue. Therefore the "No known issues" bar at the top of the support page is not accurate. At least provide me an "I disagree" button, because it's very frustrating to be locked out of reports and see "No known issues".

  18. Q&A does not change visulization to combo charts like line and stacked\clustered column chart

    Q&A does not change visulization to combo charts like line and stacked\clustered column chart. It does not recognize “….as line and clustered column chart” or “…..as line and stacked column chart”. Please suggest if there is possible fix.
