  1. Add subscription send time offset relative to dataset refresh

    This may be a specific problem that my team is facing but we are trying to explore the subscription capabilities to push powerbi reports out to relevant parties. We have set it up to send the subscriptions post dataset refresh once daily. Unfortunately we receive a picture of an error message instead of a picture of the report page itself. (Error message: Unable to load the model).

    My suspicion is that the powerbi reports haven't had enough time to load the refreshed data model before it's being sent out through the subscriptions. (Our powerbi reports are "thin reports" that grab…

  2. Customise Subscription Emails

    At the moment, users can subscribe to a report or a dashboard and receive an email which contains a link to the report and an image of the report.

    It would look so much better if you were able to configure the email layout, much like you can in Reporting Services.

  3. deregister a gateway via Power Platform Admin Portal

    As a tenant administrator i need to control which gateways are registered in my tenant. I can block users from creating new on premise data gateways but I can't block them from setting up personal gateways. I would like the ability to remove gateways from my tenant if I do not want them used

  4. Allow admins to look into workspaces in organization

    Why should i an admin add himself to a group or workspace to be able to look into it.

    often it is a concern of privacy having a admin added to your teams group(associated with powerbi) and listen to your teams conversations

    please provide open access to admin's to do administration of powerbi workspaces

  5. Reactive alerts on visualization errors and on-demand refreshes

    It would be great to be notified on visualization errors received by users and on-demand refreshes (when triggered and result).

  6. Add option to download users in a dashobard via excel or other formats for ease of audit.

    In an Audit perspective, the tool should have an option to download users in a dasboard.
    Also extracting users in PBI, should have a field to show what dashboard/report is shared to him/her.
    The tool should also have an option to bulk upload users after creating a PBI security/365 group.

  7. Audit Logs improvement

    Could be useful to have more info regarding usage of every page in a report.
    Could be also useful to have info on usage of different visuals.

  9. Admin portal - Allow filtering by Workspace ID

    Admin portal currently allows searching workspace only by name and that sometimes changes. Also assigning Workspace to Capacity only by name is not good, because it is not always unique. Workspace ID would be much more reliable.
    Thank you :)

  10. Restrict report level access within Workspace

    Please check the feasibility to restrict reports within a workspace. Otherwise, we may end up creating many workspaces.
    For ex. I have 5 reports in an app workspace and I have the different user list for all 5 reports. as one set of audience for first report and another set of next report and rest of the report ( 3 reports ) should be visible to all members in a workspace.

  11. Subscribe hidden page / subscribe to a bookmark

    today you can not send email remainders (subscribe) pages that are hidden.
    sometimes you hide pages so you can access them through bookmark but you don't want them to show in the general view.
    but you want to send reminders based on this hidden report structure

  12. Redirecting users to a email for geting help

    Allow adding email id for "publish get help information" tenant setting. As of date we can only redirect the users to a URL. However it would be great to be able to add an email ID (Example for help desk) as an alternative.

  13. About capacity calculation

    At present, in order to confirm the capacity used by oneself, it is necessary to confirm and summarize the usage of personal storage and group storage.
    I want a method to check the usage status of all capacity at once.

  14. Admin Dashboard for diagnosing refresh failures

    we do see various refresh failures in a day, some throttled, some cancelled by pbi service, some taking very long time and timing out, some failing with genuine credential issues

    in most of those cases it is hard to figure out at what point the failure happened(capacity/gateway/datasource itself)

    since we have three components involved in most of the scenarios
    -> premium capacity
    -> gateway
    -> datasource

    we would like to see time breakdown and logs associated with each refresh on every stage.. so that it is clear to us on whats causing failures and delays..

    right now the powerbi is…

  15. Global User Access Audit

    Currently there is no easy way to pull a list of all users and what they have access to. There are ways to get bits and pieces of this, but no clear solution. The Azure Audit Logs only show activity not potential access. As a Power BI Administrator, managing security is iffy at best. Please give me a button to click in the Admin Portal that spits out a csv of all user access. This should include access to: workspaces, apps, reports, dashboards, datasets, datasources, gateways, etc. It should list the type of access.

    Scenario: An analyst shares a report…

  16. Add publishing approval workflow to Power BI's published to a workspace

    We have many users creating Power BI's and publishing them to workspaces. To govern what is published, it would be helpful to have a publishing workflow where a designated user, one with publishing approval permissions, can review what was uploaded before other workspace users can see it.

  17. Transfer ownership of workspace/report/ Dashboard when a user leaves organization

    It’s happening to us that when removing a user from our organization all items included into his personal workspace are lost. I think there should be a kind of recycle bin that the administrator can use to recover those files.

  18. Dashboard Owner Lookup and Permission Notifications

    For large organization with many apps in PowerBI, it can be difficult getting permissions to access the dashboards you need to.

    After clicking a link, you are asked to send an access request and the dashboard owner gets a notification in the PBI interface. However, that notification request seems to be very easy to miss and not all dashboard owners are frequently using PBI. So the request for access goes unanswered.

    There is no way for a dashboard end user to know who owns the dashboards they are requesting, so there is no way for them to email the owner…

  19. workspace members remove other members

    Power BI workspace "members" have the ability to add other users to the workspace at the "member" or lower level.

    They need to also be able to remove users at the member or lower level. Without this, the whole idea of delegating user maintenance falls apart - workspace admins are still required to maintain users, because members can't remove people who leave, change departments, etc.
