  2. Empty favourites and recent links after switching to Premium

    We have received quite a lot of tickets and feedback after switching to Premium and removing PRO licenses from most of our organization's users.

    This is due people using links to workspaces, where they can not access anymore! Power BI will give Free users a pop-up message noting one should upgrade to PRO.

    This will yield unnecessary confusion. This would be easily avoided by removing all old links to old workspaces.

  4. turn off publish

    Add the ability to turn off the "Publish" to PowerBI.COM menu option, as a configuration. For some companies (like mine), that are changing their reporting tools, but not ready to move to the cloud yet, either culturally or due to regulatory requirements, turn off the option to publish out to powerbi.com, and make it manageable via a GPO.

  7. Part of Data Governance to allow customization for removal of "get data" and "+ create" button in Power BI service

    As an Premium admin for Pro Users there should be a flexibility of removing the "get data" and "+ create" button in Power BI service. This allow more flexibility in controlling users to not extract data from anywhere. Part of the governance process.

  8. change workgroup name in exchange directory

    When you create a workspace, that name is automatically shared to the exchange email directory without context that it is a power BI workgroup. So for example, when we set up "Nursing" for nursing reports, people see that in the directory and attempt to email all of nursing using it. Suggest that you can override the name in the exchange directory, and better yet set up a rule for it, like prefix all with PBI_.

  9. Allow multiple power bi apps to be registered in Dynamics 365 power bi configuration

    When configuring power bi in dynamics 365 for finance and operations, only one app can be registered for d365fo url instance.
    Admin should be able to register more than one pbi app to deploy to d365 instance.
    With only one pbi app registered to one d365fo instance, admin has to manage a large volume of pbi dashboards and reports. This is not productive nor efficient.

  10. Require PIN for security on Mobile Apps or time out from inactivity without using Intune.

    There should be a way to either require the phone to auto lock after x amount of minutes or auto sign out if the app is not used. Or even a pin or finger print to open the app. This should not require using intune to do that.

  11. Login enforcing password change

    Remove need to change password periodically. Keeping track of changing passwords is very annoying.

  12. Internal Servers

    Sorry for my lack of knowlegde, but is there any way to have projects publish in internal servers so only ppl within the organization can have access to it?

    I work at an asset manager and client and portfolio information are always very sensitive.

  13. Edit workspace : Group users so that we can see who has admin and member permission

    While editing the workspace I can see all users are listed as one group may be you can group them like Azure portal and show who has admin and member permission.

  14. restrict access to the waitlist and account details to relevant staff.

    working in small communities some data should be restricted for certain levels of the business. This will prevent conflict of interest issues and also can protect the client confidentiality.

  15. Better usuability

    Usability could really be improved. In the Power BI app things like setting the gateway for a dataset could be done by right-clicking in that dataset and entering a specific option instead of going to the gear icon at the right upper side. Processes like updating the data of a report should show a bar telling us how is the process going (how much more it will take?). Importing a file to the website should also have a progress bar. It's terrible not knowing how is this important process going.

  17. Display “Publish to Web” option based on Azure Active Directory (AAD) groups

    Have an option to ‘Enable’ or ‘Disable’ the “Publish to Web” feature based on Azure Active Directory (AAD) groups. This is an important feature to limit the risk of sensitive information accidently being published to the public domain.

  18. Different licence depending on the profil : creator or user

    An user of dashboard is not a creator. Why give access to all to both. A user can Edit a Report, have access to the Tables and manipulate data without the knowledge. Microsoft should implement 2 licences : One for Creators and one for users like a read-only Report. Not everything is about Dashboard, etc.

  19. All Non-Pro Users to view R Visuals in Dashboards & Reports in Premium Apps

    We have developers building visuals using R in our Premium tenant. When published to end consumers via Apps, Power BI still requires end users to have a Pro license in order to see the visualizations either those pinned to dashboards or physically within the reports. We propose dropping this requirement to be licensed to view Apps intended for non-Pro users (consumers)
