    • Subscribe others to emails for reports or dashboards that have RLS

      Power BI now allows users to subscribe others to emails for reports and dashboards. However, if RLS is applied to the dataset this is not possible. This idea will remove this restriction.

      • Dynamics Accessibility in a Workspace | Controlling Report Visibility

        Hi Everyone,

        Firstly, I should say that we might have a lot of workspaces to publish our reports to. Over time it might get confusing to track which content is where and which users have access to it.

        That's why I suggest controlling the visibility of reports for each member. What I mean is that for example we have a workspace for one business division and we have a lot of members in the said division. Instead of creating another workspace we can give users permission to view specific reports in the workspace.

        Benefits of this development:

        *Handling all reports…

        • Page level audit log

          Anyone who uses Power BI and audits its logs will only be able to audit until dashboard level. The idea is to increase the level of detail to page level so that you can know which pages are beeing visited the most/least and by which users. This new information will enable you to modify your dashborads accordingly, enhance them and much more.

          • Include Reports/Dashboards from Multiple Workspaces in One App

            Similar to ideas around creating multiple apps from one workspace, it would be very beneficial to have the ability to create a high-level app that includes reports from multiple workspaces. For example, our executive team would like to see specific reports from sales, accounting, and fields ops in one app instead of navigating to three different apps/workspaces to view the appropriate reports.

            • New workspaces require readonly role.

              require readonly workspace for the new workspace (preview mode). currently the lowest 'contributor' role can delete reports from workspace.

              • Workspace Adminstration

                Improve the administration of workspaces. As an administrator I want to be able to access and have visibility of all workspaces, dashboards, reports and datasets. I want to be able to restrict users being able to use their My Workspace. I want to be able to disable the creation of workspaces for Pro users. I want to be able to create groups to manage access to workspaces without needing global admin rights.

                • Add user groups to workspace members

                  It would be helpful to be able to add AD/AAD security groups to App Workspace members/admins. At the moment we are having to manually update users across most of our spaces as the Analytics team require access to all.

                  • Allow admins to control external sharing by recipient domain

                    Currently admins have the ability to allow certain users or groups of users to share content externally. While this is a good feature it is too wide open. Several industries are highly regulated and others may have highly proprietary information and it would be nice to control the external domains that these user can share with.

                    For Example: Let's say Contoso has a tight relationship with Microsoft and it has been approved by Contoso to share Power BI content with any Microsoft employee. It would be nice for the Power BI admin to turn on external sharing and be able…

                    • Improve controls for content sharing

                      We have multiple engagement teams creating content for different internal and external clients. Each team gets their own workspace(s). We need to be able to allow the engagement teams to manage sharing of their content, however we need to minimize the risk of content being shared inappropriately.

                      Current sharing controls are crude - they are at the tenant level and pretty much all or nothing, internal or external, caveat emptor.

                      We would like to be able to set broad sharing rules at the tenant level and fine-grained sharing rules at the workspace level. These would be controlled by a Power…

                        • Disable or prevent Teams from autocreating App Workspace

                          Please introduce a global setting to Prevent Teams from creating PowerBi App Workspace automatically when creating a new Team. As the new Workspaces are detached from Teams/Groups this should be a setting to prevent the App Workspaces beeing clotted with empty Workspaces from all our Teams.

                            • Scheduled Refresh

                              Need the following options to refresh the data:

                              1. Have the ability to refresh specific tables from the Datasets.
                              -- We have a report that contains intraday, daily and MTD data. We only need to refresh the daily and MTD data once a day but the intraday reporting needs to be refreshed every 30 minutes.

                              2. Have the ability to set the time with increments of up to a minute.
                              -- Currently, we only have a 30-minute increment to schedule a dataset refresh and this limits our ability to separate multiple dataset refresh at a given timeframe. For example, I…

                                Add the Admin Portal to the Power BI Report Server on premise. Like to be able to report on access and usage through built-in reports rather than building our own.

                                • Ability to hide "Try Pro for free" under Premium tenant

                                  Allowing free users to try Pro for 60 days will put them under consideration that they are Pro users and once the trial ends there will be lot of questions on having their Trial back. This seems to be a marketing strategy but we need the ability to turn off the prompts asking a user to try Pro for free. Users can also create lot of content in 60 days and lose the ability to use it after 60 days trial ends.

                                  • Hide datasets from published app

                                    When an App is created/published, the reports AND datasets are visible to the end users. The users are able to analyze the datasets in Excel which is not necessarily desirable. This capability should be able to be controlled by the Admin.

                                    • restrict copy data from visuals by tenant level setting

                                      New update that allows copy data from Table and Matrix visuals negates tenant level security setting "Export data" even if users are restricted by that setting, they still can copy paste data from within visuals, could we please have this as tenant level setting as well with exception groups facility.

                                      • Improve people picker for sharing

                                        Summary: The people picker for sharing content is too restrictive (only shows Display Name and User ID, and isn't configurable) and can potentially divulge information.

                                        We have multiple engagement teams that provide content for internal and external customers. All users who have a Power BI license who are not in a "read-only" role, can use the people picker to share content with other users. The people picker lists all users within the organization in Azure AD. This can reveal the names, and userids, of external customers.

                                        We would like the following:
                                        - to determine at the tenant level which AAD…

                                        • Gestion du partage

                                          Bonjour,
                                          Serait-il possible d'avoir une catégorie "partagé par moi" de la même façon que "partagé avec moi".
                                          De plus, dans la liste de nos rapports et jeux de données, il serait intéressent d'avoir une colonne dédié à l'état du partage de chaque fichier comme sur OneDrive.
                                          Merci, bonne journée.
