  2. Provide a small business friendly pricing tier

    The price of Power BI Pro at $9.99/user/month is steep for small business and start-ups on a tight budget. You should have a small business pricing tier, such as up to 5 users, at $4.99/user/month. Then, you can charge the big dogs (6+ users) the $9.99 rate.

  3. Quandyl as a data source

    https://www.quandl.com/ has a TON of free data that would be fun to play around with. Quandyl should be available as a standard data source!

  4. Ability to see the filepath in OneDrive for a Workbook

    When viewing your workbook settings, it would be very handy to see the filename and OneDrive filepath of each datasource.

  7. Tiles for files

    This is and idea inspired by someone asking for tiles that contain just text. I see many reports that not only contains charts and tables, but also explanatory text.

    It would be great to take this to the next level and create tiles that show contents of an Office file (could be Word but also PowerPoint and even Excel). A static preview would be OK, but a tile that is updated when the file changes would be super.

  9. Visualization Selection

    When there are multiple visualizations and text on a dashboard it can be difficult to select those that are under others.

  10. Does Power BI support publishing Reports Or DataSets to Amazon Cloud?

    Currently, we can publish reports to Microsoft's own cloud. However, can we publish reports to some other cloud like Amazon Cloud, private corporate server?

  13. create model from streamed tables

    When you use stream analytics to push data you have to use different datasets, at least allow multiple tables in one set or preferably a full model of linked tables

  14. Migration of existing Exel workbooks does not work properly

    Migration of existing Excel workbooks that refresh successfully in old Power BI does not work as advertised. I have several reports with Project Online OData plus on-prem data sources that have successfully refreshed for months. New Power BI would not recognize the OData sources because they were not Power Query. This has caused me a lot of extra work.

  15. Automatically close the left pane when you open the Filter pane

    Once you click on a Filter, you usually no longer need access to the My Workspace pane. Why not have an option to automatically close it when you start filtering in order to give the user more real estate without having to close the pane

  19. Import data view

    The import data view is not logical. The import side starts with "connect to the data..." and the connect side starts with "bring your excel wb into..."
