  1. Allow rotation on text boxes

    Text box should have an option to configure rotation ( ex. 90 degrees for vertical text)

  2. Conditional coloring for clustered column chart also when multiple values

    Hi.

    A bit shocked because I can make just what I need if I have only one measure in my chart visual - and when adding another one - I am just able to select color. Cannot be in 2020?!

  3. decomposition tree - scroll left/right

    Now that the Decomposition Tree visual has reached GA, I'm enjoying the responsive feature, however, it is responsive for up/down only, I would like the ability to scroll left/right too, for when I decompose many dimensions.

  4. Play Axis on Funnel Chart

    As the Funnel chart is very static, with only a small amount of information, it would be good to see it expanded with a Play Axis, e.g. to see how data changes over time.

  5. Field pane should indicate which items are used in filters

    When you select a Power BI visual the Fields pane shows ticks for all the items used in that visual. However, it doesn't show where a Visual level Filter is applied, so it's not the full story. Ideally it should also flag Page Level and Report level filters that are impacting that visual

  6. Copy Visual layout in Theme

    A great addition to Themes would we when we are satisfied with a Visual's layout we could transfer this in to the Theme.

    As example, we change all settings for Table-Style Condensed, we transfer the settings into the Theme, we save the Theme as our Custom Theme and can easily reuse it.

    A bit like you can do in Word with Styles.

  8. Allow hiding or customizing count of rows display in Filters pane

    When value is added to Filters pane, Power BI automatically displays count of rows for each value. Please allow hiding this count or adding customized count.

  9. Open in Desktop

    Power BI desktop files should behave like Office files in Sharepoint. One should be able to "Open in Desktop" like in Excel, Word, etc. It is a hassle to download/upload each time you make an edit.

  10. Allow to fully hide the ribbon in (the new UI of) Power BI Desktop

    I like the new ribbon experience (and I am getting faster and faster in finding the stuff I need :-) ).

    Unfortunately I did not discover a way to fully hide the ribbon. This is possible in all Office applications I know and is also possible with the "old" UI. I like to have as much space available as possible for the report.
    Double-clicking a menu item did not lead to the desired effect.

    (The little icon on the right end of the ribbon only allows to minimize the buttons, but not to fully hide the ribbon.)
    Did I miss…

  12. Scroll wheel functionality in the ribbon

    Allow the scroll wheel to change ribbon tabs when hovering over the ribbon (like it does in other MSO applications and it does in the PowerBI Query editor)
    Especially since the Quick Access toolbar can't be edited, I end up changing ribbon tabs all the time. The scroll wheel is a much nicer way to change tabs.

  13. Bookmarks with selected visuals should show what visuals have been selected

    While creating a bookmark with selected visuals - the selected visuals are highlighted in the selection pane. But once the bookmark is created - if i am revisiting this bookmark for updating in future - then i cannot see which are the visuals selected. This is very frustrating. Please add the ability to show which visuals/controls have been selected by highlighting them in the selection pane when I Click the bookmark.

  14. Power BI Templates (.pbit) should exclude unused themes

    Currently when exporting a Power BI Template (.pbit) file, all of the base themes are included in the file as well, increasing the file size. The built-in "Bloom" theme is over 3Mb alone! Unused themes should be excluded from template files to reduce overhead.

    Currently , when connecting to the ADLS GEN2 of the external AAD, the ADLS is searched from the AAD to which the user who is going to connect belongs.So, it cannot connect to the ADLS GEN2 of the external .
    It would be nice to be able to connect to ADLS GEN2 of the external AAD.

  16. Organization Approved Themes

    Now that themes are out of preview and the Product Team has included themes in the Desktop tool the next thing to add to this is to have a section for organization approved themes. Since many companies have branding guidelines this would be an easy way for admins to load these themes and allow end users to pick from them to create consistency.

  17. Eraser for Search in Slicer gone if Header hidden

    if you turn off the Header for a slicer with text in the field, the eraser vanishes from the Search box so there is no way to clear it. Turning on Titles doesn't fix it either. You must leave the Header on.

    Seems like a bug.

  18. Custom theme in organization space

    It would be a good idea to add a space within the organization for Custom Themes. Since we have branding guidelines, it would be easier for groups within the organization to access the custom format via organization approved themes/space.

  19. Edit Interactions to include Filter Pane

    Expand the Edit Interactions functionality to include the new Filter Pane Visual/Page/Report filters.

    eg I would be able to pre-filter the values for just the Page Level Filters from a slicer.

    Currently, no visuals affect the Filter Pane items. So this would be a big improvement in usability for the Filter Pane.

  20. Get some working space for Format pane in Power BI by hiding the Visualization pane

    In Power Bi Desktop, While i am working with Format pane, I want to see an option that I can hide the Visualizations pane to the top, so that I can have place to work on Format options in a single view instead dragging down to look for all options.
