  1. Cortana Predefined Questions

    Make predefined questions in PowerBI via the Report Dashboard (or other method).

    If a user types "Who is on holiday today" in Windows 10, currently, it wouldn't give the correct info. It would give random data from the dataset. (this is data from MySQL via our Holiday System.

    If I had made this question in PowerBI and give it the correct output - that would sort any issue for end users.

    In it's current state, I cannot see how people use it...

  3. Google Analytics Content Pack Enhancement

    The Google Analytics Content Pack is WEAK, it needs to support:
    Scheduled reports - this is A MUST
    Google Segment Data
    Google Real Time

    Without this many Marketers will walk away from PowerBI and use Google, which after a 1st look is a much weaker product.

  4. Allow slicer to work across multiple tables

    Currently if you have two unrelated tables with similar columns, a slicer will only show the values of and allow filtering of one of the tables. This means that a user has to provide duplicate slicers, one for each table, where they can select the same values.

  5. Make using data sources easier.

    Make using and keeping datasets in sync with the source easier because reports that are out of date are useless.

  6. Creating new column based on the values of the table visualization ?

    Example Let's you have table with two columns A and B. You want to create a new column C based on A and B (eg. C= DIVIDE(A,B)). The result of C should change based on the current values of A and B

  7. Quick Insights - Expanded Integration with Desktop

    Currently results from Quick Insights seem limited to pinning individual tiles to a dashboard in the Service. It would be more useful to expand on this great feature to be able to 1) select ALL the results and pin them en masse 2) ability to pin or import Quick Insight results to the Desktop authoring tool to be able to further customize the results.

  8. Suggestion for Power BI Services Content Pack

    We have a very popular local accounting software called SQL accounting software. I suggest to add into the content pack library as there are many SMEs using this software for financial reporting.

  10. Support archive .pbx

    It would be a very useful mobile applications support pbx files generated by the powerbi desktop. With this it would be possible to view reports quickly and efficiently.

  13. Import data from power query

    If we could import data directly from the data catalog queries made with power query sent to the BI catalog query data query it would be great power and of course do not erase the existing queries

  14. PowerBI Embedded Reports Rendering Issue

    I am using PowerBI's Rest API to embed reports in our application. However, after loading webpage, I get a Power BI loading Symbol and nothing happens after that.

    Surprisingly, Reports renders well in our PROD environment but not in TEST environment. We are using same browser of same version. Still this issue persists in only TEST. It would be great to know about this issue.

  16. Ability to retain the filter applied on a component

    It should be able to retain the filter applied on a particular chart.
    For example, i have multiple charts one is at country level, 2nd is at state level and 3rd is at city level.
    If user sees something wrong in the country level chart then he will click on that particular country to filter the data in state and city maps.
    then he want to see the one of the state which is performing bad, so he will click on that state to see the related cities under that. Assuming that he will see the data of the country…

  17. Tooltips update when selecting multiple areas of a chart

    It would be good if when selecting multiple areas of a chart (ie. 2 or 3 of 8 bars or 1 or 2 slices of a pie) the tool tip updated to show total of selection or showed more data like the average max min etc.
    This would allow for selecting parts of a chart to get a quick total or compare the average of 3 months to the yearly, etc.

  19. PowerBI Format Settings

    There should be a method by which I can set up all kinds of settings e.g. Font size of X-Axis, Font Colours which I would normally use and save this as a design template. This will save a considerable amount of time.
