  1. Ability to Access Another Users Workspace

    Need to have the ability to access, at the very least have an admin be able to or have someone's workspace be transferable should they leave the organization. Issue, there are some workspace information that others forget to publish or through testing leave "test" data out there and now it cannot be removed.

  2. Workspace Dataset date format always USA

    Allow at least at the tenant level, but possibly also the Workspace or User level, setting of locale, to correct the date format.

    e.g. when looking at the datasets in a WorkSpace, the last refresh and next refresh dates are always USA format. I'd like to change that to NZ/Aus/UK format.

  4. Report published to app.powerbi.com should not be included in application as default

    When I publish a report to app.powerbi.com, it is automatically included in report application. If at that moment somebody else is updating the application, this new report is included there. Or if you yourself don't remember to go and change the setting after publishing. Usually a new report needs to be reviewed/tested first before including it to the application so the default option should be excluded instead of included.

  8. x and y coordinates

    I want to show a map on my dashboard based on x- and y- coordinates. It seems to me PowerBI only works with longitude and latitude?

    I want to be able to use the same coordinate system as GPS (WGS84)

  12. Measure Error Notification for linked Report

    When connecting reports to PowerBI datasets, there is no way of knowing that an update to the dataset will break the reports down stream.
    For example if I rename a measure and publish my dataset, any report using that measure will break but we will not be notified until a user finds the problem.

  14. More control in filter pane - end users able to adjust filters but unable to remove them

    When setting up a report we can now choose which filters will be displayed/hidden/locked on the filter pane. Excellent!!

    However, it is still possible to remove the filter by the end user by hitting "x". By clicking reset to default all filters will reappear. However not every user will get this directly or they can be removed accidentally.

    It would be a great feature if there was an option where we can select whether the filters displayed on the filter pane should be removable or not by end users.

  15. desktop Edit query search for fields

    When you import tables that are super wide and you only need a few fields and you want to remove all others, it would be great if you could search for the fieldname to quickly access it.

  16. add possibility to delete unused datasets from app

    Currently you cannot delete unused datasets when an app is published. To do so you have to unpublish an app but this makes you lost all defined access permissions and app settings.

  19. Refresh the report in full screen mode on the TV/Web browser automatically.

    My PowerBI report in the cloud platform is running on the browser in full-screen mode and I would like to have the possibility to schedule the refresh automatic in X minutes for example, nowadays I need to press the refresh button manually.

    The Microsoft could implement that feature please.
