    • Conditional Formatting for Text

      It would be great to conditional format a table and/or a matrix based on the cell text, not only numbers

      • The shared dashboard email from the service should have a link to an intro video

        The email that is generated from Power BI when someone shares a dashboard should include a link to a short video on how to navigate the service aimed at end users of the service e.g. “First time user? Find out how to get the most out of Power BI”. We certainly had several users who have
        • Not realised the reports have multiple tabs
        • Not realised they can drill through from the dashboard to reports
        • Don’t know about the “drill down” functionality

        • Won’t realise they can now drill through

        • Disable export of underlying data

          We are using SSAS Tabular as our datasource and we have issues when users try to 'Export underlying data' from the Power BI Service. The query generated to SSAS when doing this seems to include every measure from the table which in some cases is 30+ measures and sometimes from multiple tables. The query never completes and consumes nearly all resources on the SSAS server.

          We need to disable this option while still allowing export of summarized data.

          • Slicer over all pages

            What we really need is a slicer (filter) to be available over all tabs/pages. Maybe create a user control which can be placed on each page? In this user control you can define multiple filters/slicers which are available on each page. Maybe a kindof pulldown menu for this user control so it does not take up to much space?

            • Export current theme as a Json file

              We have a wonderful option - switch theme to import theme as a JSON file.It would be great to have an export option to export current theme as a JSON file from a report.

              • Bookmarks on BI Service at Dashboard level

                Loving the new bookmarking feature, however working within an organisation where Power BI has just been introduced the majority of our dashboards are pinned reports to dashboard level. It would be AMAZING if the bookmarks (linked to images) worked on the dashboard level.

                If you can pin an entire report and the interactive visuals work, logic dictates that any image-based bookmarks should also work. Also adding bookmarks to filters would be heaven.

                I appreciate that bookmarks are in preview but would welcome any indication of further bookmark developments?

                • Ability to mark some pages as "Do not publish" in Power BI Desktop

                  In Power BI Desktop it should be posible, before publishing the file to the service, to mark some pages as "do not publish" or hide them for publishing. This way we can have some safe hidden place to draft new ideas or a repository of charts to copy to the pages that will actually be published.
                  The place to put this functionality could be the contextual menu that appears when right clicking the page name (now it shows "Duplicate Page" and "Rename Page". New option could be "Do not Publish")

                  • Automatic update of Pinned Live Pages

                    A dashboard that is based on a pinned live page is not automatically updated when the dataset is updated.

                    Automatic update of Pinned Live Pages should be implemented as a feature.

                    • Embed Power BI Report Server reports into extranet apps

                      Allow Embedding of Power BI Report Server Reports for Extranet Apps. Because of our clients needs data cannot leave our servers and be put on the cloud. Our existing SSRS reports are displayed using a report viewer object, however this will not work for PBIX. We need to ability to embed PBIX and display it externally. Is this going to be possible with Power BI report Server?

                        Thanks for submitting this idea!

                        You can embed a Power BI report stored in Power BI Report Server into another app using an iframe and the rs:Embed=true URL parameter (Kasper de Jonge has a good blog post on the topic: https://www.kasperonbi.com/embedding-power-bi-reports-with-power-bi-report-server/). This support is limited so far; for instance,
                        - There are no URL parameters for filtering. We plan to add this feature. (Vote and comment: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/19727650-pass-filter-in-url-powerbi-reportserver)
                        - There’s no JavaScript API for richer programmability. (Wouldn’t it be nice if the Power BI JavaScript API supported Power BI Report Server? Submit an idea!)
                        - The report server will try to authenticate your end user — by default, using Integrated Windows Authentication. For intranet apps whose users are within your organization and your Active Directory forest/domain, that might work fine, but for extranet apps, as you noted, that doesn’t work.

                        We plan to address this last issue by enabling…

                      • Secure Custom Visuals

                        Some custom visuals are quite valuable. However, the ability for custom visuals to "send data over the internet" introduces unacceptable risks to our enterprise. We have a rather large enterprise and cannot provide a means for our data to be sent to a third party.

                        Ideally we would like to be able to turn them on for use in the admin portal for the service and the desktop configuration for the desktop. The choices would be by vendor, visual and version, and also by data risk.

                        For example, enable all from Microsoft (but we need confirmation that these custom visuals…

                        • Export Bookmarks in Powerpoint presentation

                          With the update of latest feature "Bookmark" in Power BI desktop, we can create as many bookmarks as we want in single report. I think its best idea to convert all these bookmarks into "PowerPoint " presentation in order to share with Colleagues or Management.

                            Enter Parameters Window with dynamic field updates

                            I can see the potential of the Enter Parameters window on Edit Queries feature, which can have a number of fields such as text boxes and drop down lists. It would be great if for example:

                            A dropdown list field on selection dynamically updates the returning dataset to another dropdown list field which its connected too. With this capability it could save time and the need to develop additional excel plugins to retrieve data for analysis.

                            The availability to connect to various data sources is already provided, but using the Enter Parameters window…

                            • drill through back button resets the applied drill through filter

                              The September released "Drill Through" option enables the ability to use a back button. When a drill through is applied, there is no way to reset the filter on the applied page. The back button currently takes you to the previous page, but SHOULD ALSO reset the drill through filter.

                                • Fix Power BI Ideas site!!!

                                  The Power BI Ideas site is useless until you don't add a basic feature of sorting of ideas by number of votes and creation date! First take care about the tool we can use to prodive you our feedback, and then perhaps you will hear the real voice of Power BI community. And I guarantee, you will be able to work on the new features with twice that pace (after you get rid of duplicated ideas).

                                  • Enable What If Parameters with Analysis Services

                                    It would be nice to do what if analysis on Analysis Services tabular models in PowerBI.

                                    • Cloud not allowed / Power BI report server licensing too expensive for small project

                                      Some companies do not have the right to outsource their data in the Cloud (Military, Space ...).
                                      I have Power BI projects for 5 to 10 users maxlmum. The best choice in this case is a Report Server license on-premise adapted to 5 or 10 users. Currently you need the Premium license which is too expensive for these small projects. As a result, customers are looking at other products like Qlik or Tableau!

                                      • Support filtering across multiple PowerBI objects

                                        Currently there is a possibility to apply filter only to Report.
                                        It would be good to expand filtering capabilities for other Power BI objects.

                                        • Conditional Formatting with fixed colors not color scale.

                                          Hi Team,

                                          Conditional formatting is extremely poor as it does not satisfy the basic criteria.

                                          I need to set the colors based on the value ranges.

                                          Red - if the values are <75
                                          Yellow if the values are in between 75 and 84
                                          Green if >=85.

                                          I don't need diverging. Users are getting confused among the multiple shades when you are dealing with high dense values.

                                          Please let me know if this can be implemented in the near future or not,

                                          Thanks
                                          KVB
