  1. Publish existing Dataset to retain Authorisation and Refresh Schedule

    When republishing a dataset from the desktop client, it would be good if the existing authorisation and refresh schedule are retained from the existing settings online. Currently, I have to remember to correct them each time a push a new change. (I can't just make the changes in the web as not all features are available there.)

  4. Limit data sources available to Publish to Web

    There are cases where Publish to Web could be used against the recommendation to only share public data. Either intentionally or unintentionally, users can share enterprise data via Publish to Web by ignoring the current warning message.

    The Admin Portal allows admins to disable Publish to Web completely or limit it to specific security groups. Going a step further, give admins the ability to allow/deny select specific data source connectors for their tenant rather than disable everything.

    For example, an admin set their tenant so that reports that utilize SQL Server, Analysis Services, SAP HANA, etc. would not be allowed…

  8. IP Address restrictions based on user

    I need to be able to set IP restrictions to some low level users in the business. For example Jo Blogs can only access power bi reports from IP address xx.xx.x. However the MD Peter Parker has roaming access. Can we make this happen?

  9. Allow bespoke User Metric Reports

    The user metrics are quite limiting. It would be great the be able to build your own reports. A simple data set with the user profile, along with the report profile (name, app, dashboard,report) would allow managers to see which reports are being used by which people. Also the current user metrics seem to be limited to dashboards-
    One would expect an analytics tool be be leading edge on analysing it's usage

  10. Manage export data functionality in workspace level

    Currently export data functionality is managed by security groups. It would be nice to see that it is managed by workspace and security groups.

  11. I want a feature which compares the aggregates with the last refresh and show it within the same tilr

    Some data elements change state and to understand this state change it id important to have a comparative view.

    Example - I have leads in certain status today and this will change tomorrow and want to quickly know upon refresh how much is the difference with the previous value.

  12. Role based pro accounts, need user accounts without ability to publish

    Some users need to be able to access data models, and should not have publishing rights. Ideally, these pro accounts without publishing rights will serve as a playground for users to do data analysis using an existing report's data model.

  13. PowerBI Service to have a menu option to Truncate/Purge Push DataSets

    The Workspace->DataSet context menu allows you to remove a Push DataSet but this deletes the reports as well

    Since visuals for Push DataSets can only be developed within the PowerBI Service, it would be handy to have a data purge capability without the need to have a API client to send the delete rows request

  14. separate report edit and group membership

    Report edit capability without being a member of the group would be nice. We currently publish a sales report using RLS which filters account info by salesrep. Currently the individual sales rep cannot edit the report layout unless they are a member of the group. If we make them a member of the group it exposes the Security (RLS). Security needs to be reserved for Administrator of the group and not allowed for member of group.

  15. Rearrange Organization Visuals

    When adding custom visuals to the organization visuals in the admin portal, there is currently no way to sort them or rearrange them. This means that if you wanted to keep all of the visuals in alphabetical order but add a new visual later you technically have to delete all of the visuals after the new one and re-upload them.

  16. Sync pbix in workspace document library for easy collaboration

    We are three business analyst that need to work together, currently we need to go in and collect the pbix file from pbi.com to ensure the latest version. We currently share a OneDrive folder from the same workspace, it would be nice to have a dedicated folder structure when you sync the workspace to sync the latest pbix files automatically.

  17. Seems improved version of PowerBI. However, it is not showing any usage data/metered cost of Reserved Instances within Azure IaaS.

    Seems improved version of PowerBI. However, it is not showing any usage data/metered cost of Reserved Instances within Azure IaaS.
    Also, PowerBI PRO should be free of cost for enterprise customers.

  19. Sharing reports and dashboards with user groups

    It would be nice to create user groups in your org to more easily share reports/dashboards with large numbers of people. Right now I have to look up a list of 50 people and type them all in for each report I want to share with them.

    Also it would be great to know which of the people in your group has a Power BI pro license or not. I have to type out each name to share then I have to wait to hear back if someone can't access a report because they don't have pro license and them…
