  2. Can I use PBI on a single MPP file on my desktop? Does PBI work on a Microsoft Project Server? If so, How?

    Can I use PBI on my laptop for an MPP file? Keep in mind MS Project has about 50 different views/reports. Can I use PBI on a Microsoft project server as advertised? If so, how does it work at a high level? Thanks - Ron

  3. Enable Q & A feature for Report Server Reports

    We are using Power BI Desktop (March 2018) version. It will be great to have Q & A feature for Report server versions as well. The Desktop version does have Q & A feature to be enabled under Page Information section, to make the page data available for Q &A. But it does not have a Q&A button for the report. It will be great to have the feature enable.

  8. Integrate Q&A with Microsoft Bot Framework

    It's wonderful if you can ask PowerBI datasets questions, in whatever platform you choose to connect it to in the Microsoft Bot Framework.. to begin with some kind of API to the Q&A would be feasable

    Likely this question can be merged with the questions "Create a PowerBIBot for Integration with Slack", but integrating with Microsoft Bot Framework would make that possible.

  10. Providing reporting capabilities for Q&A

    It would be useful if reporting data could be provided for Q&A usage - in terms of providing insight into common queries that have been submitted. This would help shape updates to dashboards to better align them to real world usage patterns and requirements.

  11. Q & A with Cortana

    Can we do a normal Q& A with cortana for any dataset which is enabled with Power BI and not just for the data on the answers card. As far as I remember I had used these last year and you just needed to type in question like in Q& A and not create any answer card like it is being done right now.

  12. Q&A on SSRS datasets

    I think It would be good if Power BI's cool feature Q&A work with SSRS reports datasets too if particular SSRS report is pinned in the dashboard. that will help the user to get summaries from very large reports data.

  13. Conditional Rendering of reports

    when we pin the dashboard, the user is trying to slice the data using slicer. hence based on the value picked, the dashboard should display only that particular report, while hide the rest. is there any possibility for this in power bi

  14. Enable Q&A on PowerBI's report

    It'd be great if users could Q&A a PowerBI dashboard from the "Report" view instead of having to go to "Dashboard". Also, why not embed Q&A in PowerBI Desktop?

  15. Count should return 0 instead of (Blank)

  16. Unstructured text search/analysis in Q&A

    This idea is to add unstructured text search/analysis to the Q&A module in PowerBI. This will enable users to search for keywords and/or phrases in the text column through the Q&A search field, so that I could do more advanced filtering on non-numeric data.

    If the dataset contains a column with unstructured text (e.g. DescriptionText), I want to search for and/or filter on keywords in this column. Sample value for DescriptionText column: "Conceptual study for California solar power plant 2013". I want to use PowerBI Q&A to search for (and count) items that contain California in the DescriptionText column. This…

  17. Add the Conversational Analytics.

    Here you can add one section for Conversational Analytics Section.
    Like if any user ask the query all the anlytics generated accordingly.
