  1. Keep group names in sync between Power BI and Office365

    When a group that is a member of an application is renamed, application's access still shows old group name.
    According to PBI product team, access list queries PBI Store instead of O365 store...

  3. 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 :)

  4. Access Requests to the workspace

    The current notification of access request has a link to approve access to a report. We don't want to grant each report individually, but sometimes want to grant to the workspace that contains it. That takes time to research where the report is, then you need to navigate to the workspace security. Would be great if there were two links:
    1) Grant access to this report
    2) Grant access to the xxxx workspace

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Как выбрав пользователя увидеть доступные ему отчеты?

    Было интересно увидеть все доступные пользователю отчеты, на которые я ему предоставил права.
    Сегодня можно открыть отчет и увидеть у кого есть права на его просмотр и т.п.
    А наоборот? В администрировании открыв список пользователей, которые имеют доступ к любым моим отчетам, выбрать конкретного пользователя и увидеть список доступных ему отчетов и уровень прав на них. И здесь же иметь возможность отредактировать.

  11. publish share

    We have had two instances where all users an App was shared with were removed.

    1) I unpublished an App to try to resolve an issue and all emails the app was shared with were deleted and we had to add them all back manually.

    2) I updated an App after a another owner had published originally. We then lost all emails the App was shared with.

    This seems like a pretty obvious bug to me. What am I missing here?

  13. Usage Metrics Missing from "New Look"

    Usage Metrics need to be available in the "New Look" Power BI Web. I have to switch off New Look in order to be able to use this feature. Please add this to new look. This should be an easy change.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. The reset button should be moved ...

    ....as it is too close to the option drop down and can cause accidental filter reset.

  20. Gateway Name in Refresh Failure Email

    If you look after a lot of client's dashboards, you may have set up refresh failure emails to point to yourself. However the notifications can leave us guessing sometimes as the emails don't contain anything to distinguish one client from another. Could the name of the gateway be included in the alert email?
