  1. Subscribe others to emails for reports or dashboards that have RLS

    Power BI now allows users to subscribe others to emails for reports and dashboards. However, if RLS is applied to the dataset this is not possible. This idea will remove this restriction.

      • Hide Filters pane on Power BI Report Server

        Is there any possiblity to hide Filters pane in Power BI Report server. We don't want to show the filters been used to external clients in our report for unnecessary discussion on calls.

        Something like &filterPaneEnabled=false in Power BI Report Server

        • Python on Scheduled Refresh

          On PowerBi Desktop we can get data using Python Scripts, but after published we can't schedule a refresh data for this connection. The PowerBI returns:
          "Query contains unknown funtion name: Python.Execute."
          It would be better if all features on desktop would work on web too.

          • Compare two Queries - Columns

            I would like to have the ability to do a "compare tables" or "compare queries" option.

            I understand that there are visuals/queries I can build to compare the DATA within two separate queries but I want to compare the two queries. I want to know how many columns are in TableA versus how many are in TableB and which column names are different from each other. When I have two tables with 150 columns (give or take) and they are allegedly a copy of each other I want to be able to confirm that all 150 in columns in TableA…

              • Click and Drag to Select Multiple Objects and Allow Nudge

                Similar to the other Microsoft products, it'd be great if we could click and drag the mouse to select multiple object on a page. Then, once multiple are selected, allow us to nudge them with the arrow keys all at the same time. Right now, we have to click one at a time and nudge one at a time. Oftentimes, I have many items I've already spent time aligning and then I need to nudge them and I have to do it one at a time.

                • New functionality "Sync Slicers" in Custom Visual visualizations.

                  I tested the "Sync Slicers" new functionality and it's a very good option but it doesn't work with a Custom Visual, for example, Chiclet Slicer. Chiclet Slicer is a Custom Visual visualizations widely used and it will be very important that this new functionality work in it well.

                  • Allow Slicers to be preset based on defined criteria

                    Allow Slicers to be preset based on defined criteria (i.e. DAX formula or other developer input).

                    For example, a dashboard that displays KPI data based on the current week end date. On displaying the dashboard the screen should default to the current end date with the user having the optional ability to set the date slicer for previous weeks.

                    At a stretch you could have a button with a bookmark action to run some DAX that could set the date slicer to the latest end date.

                    Taking this further you could also reverse and forward the slicer to the next…

                    • Export to PDF via Power BI Embedded API

                      The export to PDF feature of Power BI Desktop is awesome. Could we have this PDF support option via the embedded API to generate PDFs into a network location? Say, an UNC path. This would be fantastic for bespoke applications!

                      • Gateway Usage monitoring tools for Power BI Service

                        As Power Bi and other applications in the Power Platform become more prolific within the BI Cloudscape and Landscape integration, gateways will become used more and more. Having visibility to the capacity of a gateway, the volume of traffic through the gateway, which datasources are used more frequently than others, which types, etc would be a very useful resource to have within the Gateway management system.

                        • (Real) Dual axis charts

                          It would be nice to be able to create dual axis charts and not the combo chart, to be able to drop more than one value on an axis and synchronize those axes. It would also be good to be able to control the type of mark in this instance so you could have one bar and one hash mark. Stephen Few would be happy cause we could create bullet charts (yeah those custom visuals really don't work and have bugs)

                          • Fix Releative Date Slicer / UTC issue.

                            I know I can change my data to be reflected in UTC but then i suddenly show, for example, Invoices paid Septmeber 30th as being paid in October. this is so wrong!

                            You simply need to change PBI where date slicers are reflecting local time and not UTC. I cannot display all of our financial data improperly (as UTC).

                                Thanks for the feedback – we have this in our plans for the service and a future release of Power BI Report Server. I will update the status as soon as we’ve started work on this highly requested feature!

                              • Allow proper printing of Dashboards and report pages

                                The lay-out of printed dashboards and report pages is lost when you print the page. Proper printing functionality is still missing (may 2018). In my humble opinion this should be a priority.

                                • Power BI Free users can see Power BI Reports embedded in Teams Channels

                                  At present, users with Power BI Free licenses cannot view Power BI reports embedded in their team's Teams Channels, EVEN if they report in question is hosted on a Premium Workspace. They are forced to view it direct on the Power BI Cloud Service.

                                  This is not a good user experience, and cheapens the proposed value of the Premium product. Free users should be able to see (at minimum) Premium-hosted Reports embedded in Teams Channels, the same as all Pro users are currently able to.

                                    • Column Profiling Based on All Rows (Data Profiling)

                                      Loving the new Data Profiling feature. I totally get the logic of only using the first 1000 rows of data to show the Column Profile. But similar to how in the "Filter" Dialog it gives me the option to "Load More". Would like the option to Load the Complete Profile of the Column based on all Data Rows. You can display a warning, if needed to warn the user that this may take a long time depending on the number of rows of data.

                                      It would be nice if there was an option to do this on a specific Column…
