  1. Enable graphs on Power BI Desktop to be accessed through touch screens

    Enable graphs on Power BI Desktop to be accessed through touch screens. Currently, we can touch the graphs using 'touch screen' only on the web based link. The touch doesn't work on Power BI Desktop. Please enable the same.

  3. Exporting data from dashboard visual objects in excel format to avoid local settings problemproblems

    Clicking the threee dots (...) in visual objetcs permits the export in csv format. This can cause many problems as it exports in English (I suppose) format independently on sustem sesttings of the PC. In fact . (decimal) and , (thousands) in Italy are exactly the opposite (, is decimal - . is thousand). Exporting in excel would solve all this issues.

  4. Percentage labels on pie chart when the vales are measures

    Allow users to visualize percentage labels on pie chart when the values are measures, and chooese if the percentage is displayed beside the values or alone. Quick calc is not a solution and some say is not working on the online version at all.

  5. Adding the ability to go directly to a page instead of scrolling through all of them in desktop

    At present I have over 70 pages in one report, some are being used some are not. When I create a new page it is put at the end and I have to manually drag it to where I want it. Something similar to the way excel handles tabs would be marvelous

  6. Flip A Vis

    Since the canvas is of a limited size I would like to have the option to "Flip a Vis" over and look at the back of the visual.

    In my case I would like to have some information on the back of the visual. E.g. an explanation on what it shows and how to use it to analyze.

    I believe this would save a valuable space on the canvas

  7. "Pointer Visual" - Reference visuals from other pages of pbix - so there is no double maintenance

    I have a OPEX Analytics Page where I've put many visuals.
    Now I would like to create another page and there I would like to re-use some of the visuals, I've already created... I don't want to Copy-Paste since if I change anything on the original visual - it would not be reflected in the second one.
    Please create a "pointer-visual" that would reflect the changes made on a referenced one.
    Thanks
    Michael

  9. Allow paste to AttributeSlicer in Power BI Desktop

    In PBI Desktop it is not able to paste a text into the search box. The user must type it directly.
    In PBI service this works ok.

  10. Multiple quarterly data over years

    Time series charts should be able to show two levels at once, ie, by quarters for several years running. Problem described in this thread: http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Plot-multiple-quarterly-data/m-p/103832

  12. Drop down menu

    It would be very helpful to have drop down menus in place of slicers only. They occupy much less space in a page and allow filtering more columns

  13. MDX NON EMPTY

    With live Connections to SSAS MD we really need to filter out empty dimension members. Like in Excel there should be an option to apply NON EMPTY on the resultset

  14. Conditional formatting within data hierarchies

    When I organize my data into hierarchies, I lose the ability to apply custom formatting to the data elements when they are placed in a table. The hierarchies are an effective way for me to group data for creation of visuals but I hate having to give up the ability to draw attention to specific rows of the table that conditional formatting allows.

  15. quick calc in power bi service

    Quick Calc feature is currently only supported in power bi destkop. Allow that feature in power bi service as well so when building reports straight in power bi service you can perform those calculations.

  16. Clarity in Power BI Desktop over which features are Pro only

    Allow the choice between the standard Desktop features or the applicable license for the signed-in user.

    Then, either restrict access to the unlicensed features, highlight them in the UI or notify the user when the feature is accessed.

  18. Tell me why forecast is not available in analytics tab

    If a Power BI Desktop user satisfies all of the undocumented criteria for the forecast feature, it will appear. If not, it does not appear, and there is no means of determining why. With respect, this is not the greatest UI design choice in Microsoft history.

    Automaticaly poblishing the changes you made in Power BI desktop this should also includes the publishing of new data when refreshed. This would make the connection between Power BI desktop and the apps much more atractive.
