  1. Advanced view to see filters at once

    I'd like to have a advanced view to see all the visual level and page level filters in one table (plus the data source where the filtering column is coming from). At the moment hovering is time consuming and errors happen a lot.

  3. Disallow drillthrough on matrix row headers

    Currently, when drilling through on a matrix, it is possible to right-click and drill through from any cell in a matrix. However, it may be that essential data as defined by the measures in the Matrix Values needs to be passed to the drill through report, or the drill through report won't make sense (for instance, a dynamic Year selection may be portrayed as the column headers for those Values).
    We would like to be able to disallow drill through on the row headers in a matrix, as drilling through on a row header cell will not be able to…

  4. Slider Date Range: More intuitive End-User interaction

    Currently, when a user selects the years of 1999-2014 from a slider and then wants to change the range to the years to 2015-2016 by adjusting the beginning year first, since 2015 is larger than the end of the original year spread (2014), it will not accept it and reverts to 1999. The user is forced to type in the ending year first, then the beginning. This is not intuitive and trips up our users.

  5. Live page dashboard data extraction

    We are not able to extract data from a visual on a live page dashboard. This is a big need as it is a waste of time to go into the report and do everything (filtering) from scratch to be able to get the data on excel.

  6. Connect to datasets in the Power BI service from third-party applications, eg Tableau

    Data warehousing is old school.
    Power BI has powerful transform and modelling capabilities. They are often much faster to develop a poc on. However for a production environment, real world customers have users of competitor vis layer products. If we build the prod data set in pbi only then those users can plug in say tableau to visual a power bi dataset.

    So now I have to decide XML in a logic app, create a sql Db, write sql code and enforce security policies for a sql db. That’s a lot of rework to play catch up to pbi.

    If…

  7. Consolidating loaded data for a table in Power Query

    Hi,
    I'd like to have the chance inside Power Query to consolidate the imported data into a table in order to avoid next data refresh. So I could working with consolidated tables (fixed at a certain date/time) not more updated. The feature could be useful when it is read a data source that contains only the last data respect a specific time interval (only the data of the last week, last month, last quarter): a next update of the data source could override the previous data that could not entered in PBI. This data consolidation feature could be implemented by…

  8. Allow custom icons or images to replace the standard url icon in tables

    Example: We use the font awesome library across our sites to categorise the type of link. It would be great if the report's hyperlinks could conform to the sites structure.

  10. Custom Visual Export Link

    We have a custom visual, which allows us to pass dynamic (user-driven) selections into a URL which becomes clickable and executes an API call. This works wonderful! We're wanting to know if there is a way to shorten the URL or make it so no dialog comes up when a user clicks on this custom visual link? Is that possible?

  11. File Options Button on Home Ribbon

    With all the new options for a specific Power BI file. I would like a button on the Home ribbon that is a quick access to the Current file options.

    Today you can set data load, regional settings, privacy, auto recovery, query reduction and report settings. but in order to access these options you have to click File -> Options and Settings -> Options... This loads the Options window, Then you have to click on each section to change the properties.

    Instead I would like a button on the home ribbon, that has Options, Then all options of the current…

  12. Open and view more Power BI files at the same time and shift between by using ctrl+F6

    It would be very usefull if you in Power BI.com are able to open and view more Power BI files at the same time and you may shift between the files by using ctrl+F6 (like you are able to do in Excel).

  13. DatasourceID on Dataset from Power BI API

    We are able to get workspaces, reports, datasets, gateways and datasources from gateways, but I'm unable to find the relationship between the dataset and the datasource for the power bi metadata model.

    Since a dataset is scheduled using a datasource on the gateway, I would like to be able to link each dataset with the datasource from wich it pulls the data from.

    Thanks.
    Leo.

  14. ON-premise data gateway not so easy to maintain .

    with 4 gateways installed, and more than 150 connections. it has become time consuming and tedious to maintain. Some one knows if we'll have a tool on Cloud side to maintain those connections, do searching to avoid duplicated and errors before to generate a new connection. and also to manage users on existing connections?, Someone has a workaround for that ?

  16. Ability to Map updated Field Names in a Direct or Imported Query

    Let's say you have a sql query that pulls a field named DIV but is changed to DIVISION. In this case BI would fail and states it can't find the field. There should be the ability to Map a field to another field in these case. Dropping the field should also be a choice.

  20. Report Page Tool Tip: Ability to Choose Fields That Get Passed

    Great job with the new custom Report Page Tool Tip feature in the March 2018 release. An improvement I can see is if you can allow the user to choose which slicers get passed to the tool tip. For instance, I have a heat map that shows just the most recent data. I would like my tool tip to display a couple spark charts (plotted over time) for some key metrics. Ideally, I would like to disable the date field to be passed over to our custom tool tip. I do not have "date" as part of the Tooltip fields.
