  1. Last state of menus retained when changing focus

    Would be nice if the roll up menus in the Design area stayed as they were (ie. last state) when changing focus to another object/visualisation. if you're trying to compare settings or quickly flick between two objects you have to keep clicking the down-arrow to re-open the design parameter/category each time you change object focus.

  2. Mouse over format options to see preview changes before committing them

    Would like to be able to roll-over the design options with the mouse to preview formatting changes before committing them.. saves time doing & undoing formatting options when you aren't sure what they are how they're going to appear. Good if not quite sure what you're looking for, or want to quickly assess the options.

  5. Rename/Sort fields at visual level, with possibility to return to original name/sort

    Allow users to rename fields (axis, legend) at visual level, with possibility to return to original name.

    Allow users to custom sort (not also ASC or DESC) moving fields in the way they want, with possibility to return to original configuration.

  6. Dynamic Filter Selection based upon logged in user.

    Is there any way (Using DAX) to determine that the user is XYZ and not ZYX and set filters automatically based upon that.

    So if I am from region A I should get reports filtered based upon region A and so on.

  9. Template Inheritance

    When managing several dashboards that have the similar data (but from different sources) it would be great to be able to update a 'master' or 'parent' dashboard that could deploy changes (new charts, DAX queries to all of its children. Currently if I want to make changes to a common template I have to go into each .pbix file and make the same changes.

  10. Color coding should me initiated depending on the comparison of two data.

    Hi All,
    I have to suggest that there should me one more area of concern for Power BI Team they should start working on color coding i.e.
    if we have to compare two data and we are attaining profit then our graph should show Green Color and If we are facing loss than graph should automatically turns to Red and so on.

  11. Disable icon for creatig new Office 365 Groups when user is not in granted rights in Azure AD security group

    When a security group in Azure Active Directory is configured for the creation of Office 365 groups, the icon in PowerBi for creating new groups should be invisible, so that the form the create new Office 365 Groups does not appear. Now you get an error (Something went wrong.) only after having entered all data and clicked on "save". In Outlook you already have no "+"-icon anymore, when a user does not have the rights to create a new Office 365 Group.

  13. Minimize button should always work.

    In Power BI Desktop, you cannot minimize the window while a report is being published. This is because a task modal box prevents you from interacting with PBI Desktop.

    It seems like you should be able to minimize PBI Desktop while a report is being published.

  16. Perform DDL statements against databases before query

    Several databases are managed by roles which allow access or not to the tables. I have not been able to run the following DDL statement:

    SET ROLE sampleRole;

    If I don't run this statement before the query I don't have access to the tables.

  18. Have shapes know their place and stay there

    Background: I have been trying to use rectangles just to tidy up groups of visualizations. I know how to send the rectangle to the back so that the visualizations can be clicked. However, so far in Desktop, Service, and Publish to Web I have seen the same problem, that in any place where the visualization does not cover the rectangle, clicking on the uncovered part of the rectangle moves it in front of the visualizations making them unavailable to interact with, or hidden. That is beyond annoying for an end user.

    Can you add a setting to shapes to not…

  20. Compression option for saving files

    Since the PBIX is a zip file, why not use the compression option of the format? there are a lot of data files which are full of large volumes of numbers. I can even rename the .pbix to .zip, open it compress the data model and rename it back.... why not automatically save as compressed?

    At least give us a saving option to try and compress.
