  1. Add the ability to restrict Exporting Data by Visualization

    As data security is becoming more and more important, there will be many reports that have confidential information. Within a single report, some visuals have confidential data and some do not. In the Jan Edition, we can prevent exporting of data across all visualizations. This change would move this to the individual visualization so the report designer could better control this function.

  2. user as parameter

    We have defined user access roles set up in our database. TO get this to work with PowerBI.com we need to be able to pass the user account or email address as a parameter while using DirectQuery.

  3. Editable 'DAYS UNTIL EXPIRED' when 'share report with current filters and slicers'

    In Power BI Service, after sharing a report 'with current filters and slicers', go to 'Access' tab and at the bottom, there is a 'Manage shared report views'. By clicking this, it shows a share record with 'DAYS UNTIL EXPIRED'. However, it is not editable.

  4. Need a "clear/remove" for Recent Reporting List

    The ability to clear reports that are no longer apart of the BI Service portal. We have removed several reports and they are still being seen from the list. User are clicking the wrong report once we released a new version of the report. There should be an option to "clear/remove" old reports from these lists...

  5. Hide elements from the navigation pane

    Admins can control what each user can see at the navigation pane. This is very helpful if users needs to grant access to users from different organization in which they can only access the workspace they are added to and limit their navigation pane to only workspaces instead of showing the Apps for example. By hiding the apps, data will be secured as the users from outside the organization won't be able to view the data in the apps created by different users or countries.

  7. Clearly state that a workspace is linked to O365 and Sharepoint

    We deleted a workspace not knowing it was linked to our SharePoint which resulted in our team loosing our documentation and other important files.

    It should be made explicit that deleting a workspace will result in deletion of the underlying SharePoint team.

  8. Power BI Subscriptions are so complex

    Power BI Subscriptions are so complex .It gets so difficult to use when users with read access also needs a license.
    Please make it simple for publishers and users to use this tool.

  10. Improve Bookmarks Update

    Right now is not possible to know which objects are part of a bookmark, so every time that I need to update a bookmark I need to remember which objects were part of that bookmark, and it is a lot of work if you have many objects.

  12. export permissions

    I would like to be able to export a list of who has permission to each app, workspace, etc.

    Also to be able to at least sort alphabetically the people who have permissions. It is really hard to check if the right people have access to the app now.

  13. Workspace access list having only names instead of emails

    New workspace only showing names instead of email id in access list.It is difficult to identify users having same names but minor change in email id.

    e.g.
    email id : patel.raman@abc.com
    name showing in New WS : Patel, Raman

    email id: patel.x.raman@abc.com
    name showing in New WS : Patel, Raman

  15. Giving limited editing access to shared workspaces to users.

    The Power BI Admin could give access to edit a specific item on a dashboard and assign it to a specific individual or group without having access to edit and delete the actual raw data. Like that, the Admin still has his/her original data set and the content is only modified at the page level.

  16. Allow or not to export to PDF hidden tabs for members

    I don't want members to whom I distribute a report to be able to export the hidden tabs in pdf format (knowing that they don't have read access to them)

  17. Power BI Service: download only one summary page to do adaptions

    When I want to change a slicer or a measure in an existing report in Power BI Service, it is necessary to download the whole report (which can take much time).
    Often it is the case, that I need to edit only one summary page.

    Therefore the possibility of downloading several summary pages would be quite useful to me.

  18. New Workspace Import Roles

    In Power BI Service and the New Workspace experience, it would be great to have a way to export and import user's roles.

    Depending the number of users, it would facilitate maintenance of the list.

    Thanks

  19. Can the Power BI Pro Admin Console be a separately accessible area so a person does not need to be subscribed to the service to administer

    Can the Power BI Pro Admin Console be a separately accessible area so a person does not need to be subscribed to the service to administer it. A segregation of duty is helpful for these services and most of your other services operate that way.
