  3. view as specified date

    The ability to view as a particular date would be very useful. Many graphs we use are based on today's date (autocalculated by Power BI), therefore, the ability to view the dashboard as though it was a particular date would be very beneficial e.g. the last day of the month to review the previous month's targets and figures.

  4. Grammatical mistake on main page

    You might have a grammatical mistake on the main page of Power BI.. towards the end. I am not sure if Analyses is written with an E or with an I as Analysis. Here's the text:

    Linking data for analyses was something we couldn’t do before. With Power BI, it’s simple. Power BI makes the hard things easy. Everything becomes possible.

  6. Ability to Set Default Dashboard / Report Upon Opening

    Allow a user to set a default dashboard (or report) upon opening the Powerbi Cloud. Currently, it defaults to personal workspace which in some cases may be blank as teams will use the Group Workspaces.

  7. Find all references to a column in Power BI Desktop

    Please give us a way in Power BI Desktop to figure out whether a column / calculated column / measure is in use and ideally a way to find all references. It would be incredibly useful while working on non-trivial report, especially when you need to clean it up or refactor due to data changes in input data.

  10. Power BI Publisher for Excel

    Hola, Me gustaria que potenciaran el uso de publisher, dado que muchos tenemos las graficas en excel y esta funcion es increible, sin embargo carece de interactividad en el sentido de:
    1. Los títulos no se ajustan al tamaño de la pantalla del pc. (la vista del telefono es estupenda)
    2. Incluir el modo enfocado en la vista del PC, que permite en modo de presentación dar click a una gráfica y esta se resalte de las demás o vaya al modo .
    3. Permitir enviar notificaciones a las personas cuando las gráficas se actualicen

  12. Ignore Level Filter Section in Visualization Area

    Can you add a section to the Visualizations section for Filter Ignore by Visual/Page/Report? Really Visual is the only section that would need one but when in doubt include them all! The idea is that I can place YEAR into the Ignore Filter area and now that visual will not be filtered when other visuals are selected and sliced by YEAR. For example I have several charts all filtered to 2016 so a slice selection on one works great on viewing the others. However I also have a Year over Year Area Chart that when sliced gets rid of the…

  13. Tooltip for Analytics

    There should be a label or tooltip to show which analytics has been used. For eg. in a bar chart, if I'm showing an average line as well as a maximum, how would the user/viewer identify which line that is for.

  15. Possiblity to copy charts from one Power Bi to another Power BI report

    When we use same datasets in different report, sometime there is a need to copy a chart from a report to another report. (This feature is available in Qlikview) The chart can show blank if some fields used are missing as it might not be there or it might be renamed.

  16. Invoke Custom Function - Required Functionality

    The newly introduced Invoke Custom Functions does not support calculations.

    When calling a Power Query implementation of the Excel PMT Function I need to pass a computation e.g. [Term] * 12 as a parameter.

    fnPMT([Bank Loan], [#"Interest %"], 12, [Term] * 12 )

    The new UI only supports Decimal Number OR Column Name ... what is required is a combination of the two.

    It is now necessary to invoke the Advanced Editor in order to make the necessary adjustment.

  17. funnel chart Customisation

    I'd like to be able to customise the Funnel Chart axis text.

    Currently it wont allow changes to the text colour or font etc, thus restricting customisation which is available in other charts.

    Thanks
    :)

  18. Enable PowerBI to connect to a SSAS model through a SharePoint BISM connection

    We have built a lot of existing Excel reports using BISM connections in SharePoint and we need the ability to use BISM connections in PowerBI as well.
