  1. dock view panes in Report and App Workspace layout

    We have had a request to be able to dock the 'Show' panes (i.e. Visualizations, Fields, Bookmarks, etc) within the Power Bi Report and App workspaces. Currently, by default they are to the right of the workspace, but our user would like to be able to move these to the bottom or left-hand side. This would operate similarly to how Visual Studio and SQL server allow you to organize your workspace. Thanks!

  3. Adjust label on stacked column chart to show all amounts

    <p>Hello, pls, make a way to adjust the labels in a stacked column chart when it have small amounts. It doesn't looks useful in the default mode, even using the tooltip. In my opinion, users must have to have posibilite to see the whole data or hide it [img] <img src="https://i.imgur.com/Z8bv9ut.png&quot; border="0"> *chart in portuguese</p>

  5. Allow admin to disable Direct Query mode on Gateway

    We configured an enterprise gateway to allow analysts to do schedule refreshes of their PBI reports. However, they've discovered direct query mode and so now they're hammering our database with a ton of direct queries that seem to be being refreshed constantly.

    I'd like to see a way to configure a gateway to only accept reports published in import mode

  6. Search using AND or OR operator in Text Filter bar

    The text filter is a useful tool but unfortunately doesn't support Boolean algebra.

    Would be great to be able to search for multiple search items connected by AND or OR. E.g. "waste OR Abfall" in a column containing multiple language data.

  7. Use Colors to identify Calculations

    When entering calculations they show in gray, the same color than regular data fields, if you could include a different color (I Know they already have different Icons).

  8. When in report the report name in path should go to properties like in SSRS 2018

    When you get sent a link and someone is asking for addition to a subscription you have to click the report, then go to the folder and click to get into the manage page for that report. SSRS 2018 had it so the path report name was a link to the properties and saved a lot of headache.

  12. Deployment options: checkboxes for report, dataset and dataflow

    I can understand that some users would get confused by this but it would enable clarity for advanced users.

    As a Power BI Developer, I would like an enhancement to the deployment experience. i

    When publishing a pbix file, an advanced option (hidden by default) that could be optionally expanded with check boxes to deploy as
    • report
    • dataset
    • data flow

    Obviously if the structure of the report required the dataset to be deployed and the report was checked then the dataset would be checked and greyed out.

    Currently if I want deploy only the dataset to be…

  13. The last refresh attempt failed because of an internal service error

    I receive an error msg on Power BI Service "The last refresh attempt failed because of an internal service error " when refreshing my data. I talked to MS Support team and they suggested me to delete the old dataset and upload it again. Why it does not work when I republish the dataset. Isn't the republish should have overwritten the old record?

  14. Do we have to option to hide power queires ?

    Do we have to option to hide power queires ? The purpose is we don't want the end users to see the steps automated to get the final output?

    If this feature is not there please implement it

  17. Relative Date Slicer: Can't Click on Slicer Options

    We are using relative date slicer on our reports. This slicer works fine on Power BI Desktop application. But when I publish this report and access it on various browsers we are not able to select values from first drop down i.e. Last/Next/This as well as second dropdown i.e. Days/Week/...
    We have tested this on chrome, edge, internet explorer and we observed the same behaviour.
    We are using the latest version of Power BI desktop application and we are using Pro License.
    Need a solution for this issue.

  18. View Power Bi Report published in local report server to view in Asp.Net Web application directly.

    View Power Bi Report published in local report server to view in Asp.Net Web application directly.
    Instead of logging in to azure taking the token and making things difficult. It would be better for government organization applications. Since they are mostly deployed on private servers for security issues.

    It would be great if there is a .dll implementation into the asp.net platform to edit and deploy the report along with the rest of the application.

    At least an API implementation with azure would do wonders by itself as well.

  19. Relocated the header sorting function in table & matrix visual to the right-click context menu

    I've found it frustrating when I've clicked on a row/column heading in a matrix/table visual (whether by accident or to bring it into context) - and it ends up sorting the visual by that column. I think many users would still be more used to the concept of clicking and selecting a cell such as in Excel, which does not function quite the same in various Power Bi contexts. I would suggest this frustration could be removed by simply adding sort asc/desc options to the right-click context menu that already exists when clicking on a row/column header. Left click would…

  20. Margin for the legend on Clustered Column Chart

    When the legend is on the right side of the Clustered Column Chart it is pressed right against the chart. There should be a margin between them.
