  1. Allow Distribution lists to be used in a dashboard alert configuration

    Right now, it seems that a single person/email address can be entered as the person to be alerted if a specific dashboard alert threshold is reached. With multiple admins, we want to communicate these alerts to all of them, not just the person who created the alert. So we can create 1 Alert on a dashboard and have it notify multiple people.

  2. Provide the ability to dashboard the premium metrics report and configure alerts

    Allow the PBI Admins the ability to create dashboards from the Premium Capacity Metrics report pages and the card visuals needed to configure alerts on the dashboard for CPU, memory, query duration, wait times, etc. This way the Admins can be more proactive with premium capacity management verses waiting for the users to complain of ill performance.

  3. Allow workspace tagging

    As an IT administrator responsible for PBI Service management and governance. I would like the ability to create free form tags (Similar to azure portal tags). to track key metadata like a GL Code or responsible business department or other business specific information. These tags should be exposed via the API so they can be used to pull back in reports. tagging assets in the workspace (Reports, dashboards datasets) would be useful as well

  4. Publish dataset only

    It would be easier to maintain a shared dataset and apply changes (aka publish new and overwrite) to it. If an organization uses one shared dataset for multiple reports relying on it publishing it without a mock/fake report just to be able to publish would be great!

  6. 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.

  7. Group workspaces together

    As an Administrator, we manage multiple workspaces, and the list is growing - we are now having to scroll through lists of workspaces to find the one we need. It would be nice to be able to group workspaces together into specific folders.

  8. Add subscription delivery only on weekdays

    Please include the option to deliver the subscription only on weekdays. My colleagues consider report deliveries on weekends annoying.

  10. Navigation builder "Section level security"

    The new navigation builder is awesome for published apps, but it would be great to control access/visibility of sections to certain users of the application.

    We avoid creating multiple app workspaces for multiple groups because it has become too difficult to manage, especially when publishing the same report to multiple workspaces that are filtered slightly differently.

    Essentially, if I am in a specific business line, I should only see my business line's "section" in the new navigation builder based on how the workspace admin sets the security.

  11. Additional Power BI Reports Subscription Frequencies

    Current subscription frequencies for reports are limited and it is not possible to schedule subscriptions every 2 weeks, for example.
    Please add ability to run subscriptions every n weeks/months/days, etc.

  13. Add a way to organize and categorize Apps

    We really need a better way to organize and categorize PBI Apps. Larger enterprises have many variants of Apps from those containing high quality reports for decision makers to the self-service ad-hoc reports with less quality requirements. Please add ways for the admin to f.ex. create groups or tags to seperate various "types" of Apps. I really like the functionality for certified datasets so maybe a similar feature could also be added for Apps as a sort of "Mark of quality". This again would have to be made available to a select group of users or groups so the admin…

  14. Track Usage of Customer Power BI Visuals

    I would like to be able to track how many users use (as creators or viewers) a certain custom visual. This will allow me to communicate to external vendors on actual usage and acquire the right amount of paid licenses. Currently I do not have such an option and I need to acquire licenses for the entire tenant even if the custom visual is only used in a very small group

  18. Ability to hide office 365 groups not related to PowerBI

    With users being members of more and more Office365 groups, when we go in "workspaces", it would be good to be able to list only office365 groups related to PowerBi and not all office365 groups the user is a member of. Maybe use naming convention as a filter, or a setting.

  19. Integrating custom authentication process with Power Bi sign in

    We are using Amazon cognito system for user authentication for our application. Now we need to develop some power bi reports which users should access using the same cognito credentials. Is there any possibility to integrate our custom authentication process with power bi authentication without creating any guest account?

  20. Allow to use Security Groups in the Admin Portal for setting Workspace access permissions

    In an enterprise environment setting permissions based on security groups is key. Access to workspaces can be set on security groups in the workspace admin experience. However when you use the Admin Portal, go to workspaces, click the 3 dots for actions and select access you can only set permissions based on emails (so individual users or O365 groups). This is not consistent and should be changed because especially admins need to be able to leverage security groups for workspace access...
