  2. Re-integrate 3D PowerMap into BI Designer

    There have been some good updates to the new PowerDesigner product, but the inability to generate 3D world maps like in the PowerMap COM Add-in to Excel are missed. Please bring them back in the final product.

  6. Wufoo

    Wufoo lets our real estate agents submit online requests that can then go into a database. From that database we can set up dashboards to track and manage the requests. We would also like to be able to set up rules that send out automatic emails notifying the sender that the request was received, etc.

  10. GCD and LCD Functions or the ability to display ratios as 1:3

    I would like to have either the GCD and LCD functions or the ability to display ratios as 1:3. From a HR stand point for showing gender transparency, being able to show on a report that there is 1 female to 3 males in the workforce would be helpful.

  11. Direct connect, delayed query

    When working with large datasets via Direct Connect, eg via Azure SQLDB, the default choice when selecting a field in the well is not always appropriate. For example you might want to count a high cardinality text field. In the current preview, as you select the field, it tries to go get all the individual values (potentially millions) to display.

    The idea is to have a "delayed calculate/query" selection mechanism where you can prepare fields and filters and then hit go.

  13. DB connection was disconnected when we have connected Amazon Redshift from PowerBI Desingner with ODBC.

    We have a problem.

    DB connection was disconnected when
    we have connected Amazon Redshift from PowerBI Desingner with ODBC.

    The data-volume is like this:
    Record count: about 50million
    Column count: 35
    data size of one record: about 1K bytes

    We operated the Power BI Desingner as follows.

    ・Run PowerBI Desingner,
    ・Choose [Get Data]
    ・Choose [ODBC]
    ・Choose [My-Redshift-Setting]
    ・Load(Query1)
    ・(We waited about 70mins.)
    ・The process have succeeded,and App change at Query-Tab(Left side bar).
    ・Then, we could see the the first of about 100 records data
    (We are not sure whether we could see all data or not)

    The problem starts from…

  15. Office 365 SharePoint Online usage statistics

    We use SharePoint Online as a learning environment and we would like to do big data "learning analytics" on the students usage of Office 365 and SharePoint Online in particular. Examples of data would be number of logins per user, how active a student is in a specific site ie usage of Newsfeed or Yammer, "time spent" in Office365 and per specific site etc

  18. Collaborate MD

    The Billing software that our corporation uses is Collaborate MD. It has the ability the export data in Excel, CSV, or Text formats. It would be beneficial and more time efficient if the data could be uploaded directly.

  20. Ingesting csv data with double-byte

    In this state and age, csv data with double-byte is not uncommon. However, I just don't understand why is it so difficult for Excel to read the data properly. I can even use my vi editor (on windows) to open the files and see all double-byte characters displayed properly (Chinese, Japanese, even Russian). vi.exe on cygwin, windows 10. Please fix the double byte issue on the PowerBI/Excel character processing engine.
