  1. Gauge chart data label display options needed (thousands etc)

    Data labels units should be customizable like bar charts.

  2. Display Sharepoint all site content, not just lists

    The need to extract and aggregate data from multiple Excel files stored in an on-premise Sharepoint library is widespread. Yet, it cannot yet be achieved solely from the UI. Users should be able to directly view all lists and document libraries of a Sharepoint site. In the current version, only Lists are displayed. I would love to see everything, as when using the 'View all site content' function.

  3. Ability to export and import Dashboard tiles

    We need a way to export the dashboard pinned tiles, so that we can import that in each environment once I upload the reports again in the environment. Currently we have to manually pin the tiles and the order / size everything gets messed up and has to be manually managed / updated.

  4. Report and dataset delete option

    I noticed that any user can drop the reports or datasets which you had created. There should be admin roles for this. other wise any one can delete reports. even user can drop report from published link....

  6. Indent field names under table names in the field list

    With the table names and the field names all left justified it's really hard to distinguish between the two. There are icons that distinguish the difference but this is to subtle. Indenting gives a better way to quickly scroll through tables and fields to find what you are looking for.

  7. Table format in Dashboard

    When you pin a table to the dashboard it seems like all columns receive equal spacing. They should be formatted according to the column size as per the report view. It would be good if this could just be fixed as a two column table, where the first column is a small field, currently looks a bit silly on the dashboard.

  8. Allow me to see who shared a dashboard with me and who the point of contact is

    I have a dashboard in my account that has been shared with me. I want to know more about the dashboard. For example, how was a visualization done, where did the source data come from, etc etc.

    To be able to do that, I need to be able to see who shared the dashboard with me and whoever shared it with me probably has a point of contact they'd refer me to (if not themselves) for follow-up.

    This is crucial for collaboration and evolving the art of PowerBI in a group that isn't necessarily closely working together.

  9. Preserve dashboard formatting in mobile app

    Tiles in a dashboard sometimes are formatted differently. E.g. the number 3059 in a browser dashboard is shown as 3.1K in the mobile app (for Windows, at least)

  10. Merge fields in text box

    When entering text into a text box for your report page, it would be great to be able to merge field values into the paragraphs. eg your stores have had {Store Visits} since{FromDate)

  12. Be able to update a report on a dashboard

    If you want to update a report on a dashboard, currently you have to click the pin button again and it adds the new copy but keeps the old one there. It would be nice if it just replaced the old one.

  17. Data Tables for Bar Charts

    Would be nice to include data tables on bar charts (Excel Style Charts). This was sort of a pain to do with Reporting Services. So it would be nice to include that functionality here.
