  1. Exclude a query from refresh

    It would be really useful to exclude a query/table from a refresh. I have a report with multiple queries from multiple SQL servers (some are DQ and some are import). If one of the sources is down due to server maintenance, then I cannot refresh the DQ reports alone.

  2. DestTop改善

    1,数据量一多,移动鼠标到任意位置就卡,建议改善,我加载的是3G数据,书写有500多个度量值
    2,建议能有文件夹形式叠合表,表太多目前我只能通过规则文件名来快速找到想要编辑的表或者查看的表,太不方便了,需要有归类文件夹
    3,在DAX里面需要有一个列合并函数
    4,在DAX里面需要一个按顺序取前N行数据
    5,在我更改路径的时候,禁止刷新不应该刷新,但是现在还是刷新了,需要改进,因为迁移项目批量刷新根本就不能刷新几百个表,完全出错
    6,希望DAX里面引进正则表达式
    7,希望DAX能给个自定义函数的功能带参数的,这样很多长串DAX就不用复制来复制去了,目前来说好烦啊,完全不能抽象自己的想法啊

  3. Column Header Tooltips for Tables and Matrixs

    I would like to see a feature that would enable me as a developer to add a definition to column headers in tables and matrixs so users can get a description of the column and how it is calculated.

    This would work best from a users perspective by a pop-up/tooltip appearing when hovering over the column header only.

  5. We want to use RLS to content packs

    We wish improvement the "Download a report from the Power BI service to Power BI Desktop (Preview)".
    the content packs like "Azure Audit Logs" , "Azure Active Directory Activity Logs" cannot use as ".pbix or .pbit file",
    therefore the content packs cannot user "Row-level security (RLS)".

    Download a report from the Power BI service to Power BI Desktop (Preview)
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-export-to-pbix

  6. Change the Home Table for DAX measures when connected to SSAS

    When connecting to a SSAS Tabular Model it is possible to write custom DAX measures, however once these measures are written you cannot change the "Home Table". (it is possible to rename the measures) The Home Table option is grayed out. Please enable moving DAX measures in a PBIX file to a different "Home Table".

  7. Improve Relationship Drag and Drop Experience

    In Power Pivot for Excel, when you drag and drop columns to create relationships, there experience is:
    1. Click and drag source column
    2. Hover over destination table
    3. The receiving column on the destination table is highlighted to indicate which column will receive the join.

    In Power BI Desktop, item 3 above is missing. It makes it ambiguous how the join will be made (and a poor user experience). Please add a visual confirmation to the user which column will receive the join during drag and drop.

  9. Make frequently/recently used currency symbol always available at the top of the Currency List

    Like fonts, frequently used currency symbols should be made available at top of the currency list, to ease the difficulty of always searching for the same symbol that happens to be NOT the $.

  10. Conditional Formatting for Data color if we use Line chart along if we add any legend fields.

    I am showing the last 4 years data with trend. I checked for option for data color conditional formatting which is not available this feature. if we can add this feature in the coming releases, that would be great to showcase the Year wise color to differentiate.
    Thanks for the Great support.

  11. link measures

    When I am defining a measure / calculated column and using other measures / calculated columns in the code, it should be possible to click on the measure's name and it should open. Just like in Pycharm you do with methods.

    Measure1 = Measure2 + Measure3

    "measure2" should be a link, when clicked should navigate to it's definition:

    Measure2 = sum(table1[column1])

  12. Branch and Merge model changes to a PBIX file or Dataset in the service

    It would be very useful for enterprise development teams to be able to branch a data model from an existing pbix file (or the service) and then make changes such as relationship definition, measures etc and merge them back into the file. It would allow multiple developers to work on a single model and resolve conflicts as they arise.

  14. 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.

  16. Cross filtering on multiple (custom) visuals

  18. File > Close

    Under the file menu in PBI, we need a File Close Option like Excel. This helps to open more files and close when not needed.
