  1. Drill through Choose the drill throughs you dont want to show

    I have a report with lots of drill throughs and in some cases I'm given more Drill through reports than I would like


    For example, I have a top level report and drill through to a region. I then Drill through on another category to a detail report containing all the data (Line By Line). I have a drill through to the one data item from this report. However, bycause region is also in this table I click on a row and can choose my lowest level drill through AND the Region Drill through that I clicked on earlier.


    I…

  2. Auto fit all visualizations within a report

    it would be great if there were a way to just auto arrange all the visualizations used in a report. I would like to have an option, perhaps in the View tab to click or turn on where Power BI would auto arrange and fit the visualizations i've used in a report. I would like this auto fit not only to automatically size my visualizations, align them, space them appropriately... but also have a native visual hierarchy such as Slicers would be on the top, or maybe on the left. If cards are used, they would be on the top,…

  3. Grouped Visuals should scroll together

    When grouping visuals that have scroll features, we should have the ability to make them scroll together. I understand not making this a blanket rule, but the option would be great so you could have two longer charts - something like a timeline - where the users can scroll back in time. Having two of these on the same page is frequent so if we grouped them, it would be nice to have them scroll together.

  5. Allow to sort the drillthrough pages

    It would be nice if allow to sort the drill through pages. Currently we cannot change the sort order of the drill through pages and they show as the page created order.

  6. Remove unwanted filters cluttering filter pane

    Right now I often have around 10 fields incorporated in a visual. I like to include alot of relevant data points as tooltips. Because every used field jumps to the filter pane, the filter pane gets very cluttered with filters I do not care about. For instance, when I create a map using latitude and longitude, there are automatically filters for these fields. I will never want to filter based on these fields. I find myself having to scroll way down to the bottom of the filter page to drag/drop desired fields into the filter pane.

    Additionally, I usually want…

  7. for better accessibility, allow devs to set a dark/high contrast background for ease of use

    I'm visually impaired in my right eye so I find it difficult to work with bright white layouts and tool bars and data/graph icons. I can't be alone in this. Please can you make it possible to create a dark/night time dev screen. The previous theme was manageable but the bright June 2019 has put me at a significant disadvantage.

  8. Where is my created measure?

    After creating a measure, it will be good to have a notification or highlight about where the latest measure got created. It is created by default in the table which was selected in the model before we created the measure.

  9. Allow slicer selections to act like buttons for bookmarks

    With each slicer selection certain bookmarks are view-able so that multiple actions can be performed seemingly on one button.

    Example:
    Slicer 1 = A, B & C (in a drop down menu)
    When A is Clicked buttons for Current Day, WTD, MTD & YTD are shown.
    When Current Day is selected a table shows for A Current Day (per the action associated to the button).

    If B is selected in the slicer, buttons for Current Day, WTD, MTD & YTD are shown (but these are buttons placed on top of buttons).
    If Current Day is selected then B Current Day…

  10. Conditional Formatting Labels issue in Selection Pane

    Hi,

    The Conditional Formatting (CF) for Labels feature is great, been looking for that for a long time. It solves loads of my problems, however it now creates one.

    In Selection Pane, the visuals with a conditional formatted label appear with that text. If you change it it completely replaces the formula for conditional formatting. I need to rename the visuals in Selection Pane so I know which is which. I remember before CF being introduced, I used to turn title on, name the visual, then turn title off so I can visualise them in Selection Pane. Which means they…

  11. More user-friendly report page navigation in Power BI Desktop & Power BI.com

    Power BI Desktop:
    Could we please change the canvas view so that report page tabs appear as a list that can be easily navigated/modified on the left side of the page instead of at the bottom?
    If this view could be collapsed/expanded in a similar fashion to the Visualisations and Fields panes that would be great.

    Power BI.com:
    When viewing the report page tabs list in PowerBI.com, could we make it possible to minimise the report page tabs list on the left (similar to how you can collapse/expand the Filters pane on the right)? This allows a better full screen…

  12. Drill down button activated

    In our reports, we always need to have drill-down (the single flash facing down) arrow to be activated. Any solution we can have it activated when we publish a report? I mean the default status=activated.

  15. When I duplicate a page, I want the new page next to the old page, instead of at the end.

    Currently, a duplicated page is addes as last page in the list. This should be next to the duplicated page (or interactively with a prompt like in Excel).

  17. Allow bookmarks and bookmark folders to be exported to pdf

    The Export to pdf functionality allows us to export or print the report pages. But it would be nice if we could also print/export the bookmarks (all of them or just a folder/group)

  18. Auto expand of formula bar

    When I'm in the report function designing my dashboards, it annoys the **bleep** out of me that each time when I click on a custom table/ custom column the formula bar expands by default. 9 out of 10 times I'm not even interested in the formula bar.

    Would be nice if there is a function to disable the formula bar in Report or open it by default as 1 visible line?

  19. Search box when publishing

    When you're a report author and probably owns a lot of workspaces, you may experience the same as I do currently. When publishing content to an app-workspace I'll get a list of all my available workspaces. It would be handy to have a search box in the window where you pick the workspace to deploy your Power BI content to.
