  1. Server Client concept

    I will create a report using ODBC Connection on my local (power bi desktop) and i will save the report template. I will transfer the template to my client.

    The client will open the report template and they can only able to change the ODBC Connection string and they can only view the report. Access to modify the report template should be disabled.

    I need to collect the local machine details of all the user who are accessing the report.

  2. Managed Permissions Not Retained After App Update

    I have been using the manage permissions feature on datasets to restrict access to certain reports in my apps. However, every time I update an app the permissions reset.
    Even if the app is updated, please improve so that the authority is not changed.

  5. Send email to all users of a report

    I'd like to be able to send an email to all users who currently have access to a report, i.e. everyone the report has been shared with.

    The reason is that if I make changes, add new features, change functionality etc. I'd like to send a summary of the changes to all users impacted.

  7. Show gateways outside of Power BI tenant region as it is indeed needed for the organization having offices/users across the glob

    Show gateways outside of Power BI tenant region as it is indeed needed for the organization having offices/users across the glob as it is more useful with Multi-Geo premium node for administration purpose

  9. "Status Page" in Power BI Service

    Hi,

    I thought of this for a while now and I think it would be great if Power BI Service had a "status page" for the Admins where they would be re-directed after each login. The page would include the list of datasets that didn't refresh in the previously scheduled times. This way, the PBI admin won't have to rely on the failed refresh notification emails to see which datasets failed or go through each workspace to check on the datasets.

    Also, another helpful option would be to have on the "status" page to see which reports had been re-published,…

  10. Settings to lock parameters of Power BI Service reports

    After publishing a report to Power BI Service, changing the parameter of the report will also overwrite the parameter value of the report on Power BI Service side when republishing (overwriting) in Power BI Desktop.
    If you want to specify multiple reference target data sources with parameters and want to separately specify the reference destination when creating a report in Power BI Desktop and when displaying a report in Power BI Service side, set each time in Power BI Service Will be needed.
    For this reason, you need the option to lock the parameters in the Power BI Service side…

  11. Add the Admin Portal to the Power BI Report Server on premise

    Add the Admin Portal to the Power BI Report Server on premise. Like to be able to report on access and usage through built-in reports rather than building our own.

  12. exclusionary app groups

    life would be so much easier if we could set up exclusionary groups for Apps. This way we can tell the system to allow the organization minus this group and this user base to view the app.

  13. Schedule an autodownload of pbix file for backup

    It is nice to have a capability to set a schedule to download a .pbix file. In our case, we have many members that can modify a report, so this will be a good precaution if in case one accidentally replaced the dataset.

  14. More granularity in the Power BI Premium Capacity Metrics app

    Is there any chance we will get to see metrics (granularity) at workspace/dataset level? Especially for CPU and Memory utilization. Coz, this feature/functionality really useful for business and PowerBI support team to understand which particular workspace or dataset consuming more memory and CPU.

    Right now, we do see other metrics/data changes based on the selection of workspace but not CPU/Memory.

  16. Ability to hide "Try Pro for free" under Premium tenant

    Allowing free users to try Pro for 60 days will put them under consideration that they are Pro users and once the trial ends there will be lot of questions on having their Trial back. This seems to be a marketing strategy but we need the ability to turn off the prompts asking a user to try Pro for free. Users can also create lot of content in 60 days and lose the ability to use it after 60 days trial ends.

  17. Field properties pane in PowerBI Service

    The description field in the Field properties pane is very useful when one needs to explain to the business users what is this field or measure and how they can use it. However, it can only be seen in the desktop file. When uploaded to the service, where business users usually consume reports, it can't be seen. It would be great if there is a way to pass the description information to the service.

  18. Workspaces should have a QA/Staging environment built within the workspace instead of two workspaces for one production workspace.

    Each workspace should have all three environments, dev, QA, prod built into it. Transferring dashboards & reports across workspaces via PowerShell is not a very good solution.

    Dev could be done either on the desktop or the service. Only members and contributors can see content in this space. The ability to QA inside that same workspace would benefit enterprise workspaces. Only members, contributors could view the reports and dashboards.

    When ready, we need the ability to then promote to prod. The app is nice, but we need multiple apps for each workspace. Admin & members should have the ability to…

  19. restrict copy data from visuals by tenant level setting

    New update that allows copy data from Table and Matrix visuals negates tenant level security setting "Export data" even if users are restricted by that setting, they still can copy paste data from within visuals, could we please have this as tenant level setting as well with exception groups facility.

    Thanks,
    Ahsan Khawaja

  20. About the hide setting for "Personal bookmarks"

    Just in case you have a report that you don't want end users to use for bookmarks, let the administrator have the option to show or hide the "personal bookmarks" feature on the end user's screen.
    It is desirable to be able to set in the entire tenant, workspace unit, and report unit.
