  1. Reports with pro content should be a viewable to non pro/standard users the reports with a pop up asking for subscribe

    In our organization with 5k users have 0 365 E3 License . There are few user who author reports or create the report and rest are just consumer of report. This is a request to allow reports created with pro content by pro user should be available for viewing and not editing by non pro user. This report viewing should be seamless without any pop up screen for non pro users of 0365

  2. Group Access for Free Licenses

    It would increase organizational dependency if free users could view reports in group workspaces.

  4. Allow PowerBI Pro on Office365 Small Business licenses

    Currently there is the strange approach that we can test PowerBI Pro on Office 365 Small Business licenses, but we are unable to purchase it. That's extremely stupid. We'd be happy to pay for it, if we could.

  5. Users with .gov in email address

    This is pretty urgent issue for us - we are Gold Certified Microsoft resellers and we have been pushing PowerBI as "the" most important thing to have - trouble is all of our customers are government customers and they have the ".gov" in their business email address.
    Please can you advise when you expect to have the ability to allow users with ".gov" in email address to sign up for PowerBI. NOTE: we most likely will be PowerBI Pro licenses to them so they will be paying customers!!! We were planning on showcasing PowerBI next week at a user Conference…

  6. Combine OneDrive with Azure

    Currently to pin Excel tiles you need OneDrive for business. With Power BI Pro licensing we already pay for storage in Azure but have no need for OneDrive other than hosting files for the Excel style visualization. It would be nice if the storage purchased with the Pro license also applied to OneDrive so we could access Excel style reports without having to add $5 a user for additional storage we'll never use.

  8. If a Pro feature is being used, highlight which feature it is.

    If a dashboard has a pro feature activated, its difficult to know which feature it is. Most of the time it ends up being that multiple refreshes per day have been configured by accident, but highlighting the pro feature in place would help us know why its pro.

  10. Align Update/Release of "Power" tools across Off ProPlus & 365

    Align Update/Release of "Power" tools across Off ProPlus & 365
    Related to Excel itself and "Power" tools, but this will impact powerBI too.

    Eg with Power Maps: Right now, users with Off365 get frequent updates with new features for Power Maps while Pro Plus users can't update until Office 2016.
    This makes it impossiblele to share files with partnering companies.
    - Not sure if all the "Power" components (Query, Pivot, View) follow the same update strategy, and
    - Not sure if your plan is to keep this strategy in the future

    We need updates / releases to be aligned and…

  11. Make the product work!

    I had a coworker send me PowerBI workbook link via email. When I clicked on it, it said that I wasn't licensed for PowerBI and offered a free trial. I accpeted the offer and tried to set up power BI account for free trial but then it said I already had a PowerBI account but still wouldn't show me the document. Multiple attempts in this loop I have given up. But.... then seconds later I get a "Welcome to PowerBI" advertising email about PowerBI. Frustrated, I immediately got to select the "unsubscribe" option from the email but guess what? It…

  12. Allow creation of free accounts by synching with Azure AD

    We have quite a few users that we will want to sign up for our organization. Instead of requiring each individual go to the Power BI website and create their own free account and then have us assign rights to each user, it would be a lot easier if we could select a group(s) from Azure AD to automatically create Power BI free accounts for and then we can assign the permissions per dashboard and report immediately.

  14. Release a version for Office 365 Home users!

    As an Office 365 Home user, I would love to take advantage of Power BI - and would even be prepared to pay a subscription fee to access it.

  15. Provide a small business friendly pricing tier

    The price of Power BI Pro at $9.99/user/month is steep for small business and start-ups on a tight budget. You should have a small business pricing tier, such as up to 5 users, at $4.99/user/month. Then, you can charge the big dogs (6+ users) the $9.99 rate.

  16. Give Admins the ability to Turn Off "Try New PowerBI" banner

    If your tenant admin has turned off adhoc subscriptions, do not show the "Try New PowerBI" banner, or allow admins to turn off the banner directly.

  17. Ability to edit archived content pack

    We recently switched from the PowerBI 60 day trial to a PowerBI pro license. Suddenly we aren't able to edit the content packs we built. I need to delete the old content packs so users don't use outdated figures!

  18. Provide a standalone Onedrive for Business License

    Many larger organization have their own Exchange &/orSharePoint servers and aren't interested in O365 cabilities like that. Power BI groups however requires at least the Business Essential O365 license so you can get a group Power BI onedrive and Excel Online. Microsoft at some point offered this, why did it go away?

  20. Integrating Commercial chart library in Power BI without open sourcing it?

    You have created an open source framework "Power BI Visuals" , if any body want to integrate his custom charts in power BI, he has to develop the charts based on the standard set by this framework. Once any custom chart is added in this framework, it will be open source automatically. I have a custom charts library and i do not want to open source my library but still want to use my charts in Power BI, is there any option for that? what i want is , Only i should be able to use my charts in power…

    Interesting feedback. To be clear: while the open source framework requires pull requests to be licensed under MIT, it does not mean you must open source your implementations. You can implement the IVisual interface in your own code. We will provide a way for you to upload your visual and use it within Power BI, though it’s a little early to comment on how/when that would be enabled.
