  1. Add ability to wrap text in ALL visuals' text labels

    It seems you've added the title functionality to some visuals, but why not go crazy and enable text wrapping in ALL data label fields for report visuals?!

    At this point I could build a better data visual in PPT/Excel and that's based purely on my frustration with every "Category label" ending in "..."

  2. Allow to set row height in table visuals

    Word wrap in table column headers and values is possible already since recent updates of Power BI desktop.Would be nice to manually set the row height so that wrapped text is always visible. Add an option that sets row height automatically.

  3. Add ability to sort the words in Word Cloud visual

    Improve the Word Cloud visual by allowing the words to be sort in ascending or descending order. If you are searching for a particular word, it is very difficult to locate the word.

  4. More robust word cloud stop word limiters

    Be able to limit words on character lengths, be able to have more than 261 characters, maybe link an external stop word file.

  5. Vertical alignment of data values

    Nice addition to word wrap visual titles but...
    it now causes the data values to not be similarly vertically aligned if one title wraps to three rows and one to two rows.
    This is more prevalent with the card visual and its use on a phone.

  6. Word Cloud (Custom Visual) - default to Stop Words = On and Default Stop Words = On

    • When a new visual is created, set Stop Words = On and Default Stop Words = On. That is what 99% of people will want

  7. More user friendly word clouds

    Allow the word cloud visual to pick up on common themes with word break off maximum or minimum words in a phrase. Would also be handy to give the word cloud the option to have all caps on/off like the "Change case" button in Word. The word cloud would also look more attractive if it had colour and text themes.

  8. Create a word cloud visualization and do word count analysis

    There is a lot of data in paragraphs of text, I'd like for PowerBI to do some analysis on this text to find out word counts, and even offer a word cloud visualization

  9. word cloud: field based color

    Hi,
    I just tried Word Cloud custom visual and found it really awesome specially due to word based filter availability.

    Nevertheless, I would have been much happier if i could set the word colors based on a data field.
    The color of the words in a word cloud can be used to display another dimension of data. A simple scenario would be to color it based on its sentiment value.

    Thanks
    Himanshu

  10. Word Cloud (Custom Visual) - Default Stop Words to include numbers, symbols etc

    Improved the Word Cloud Custom Visual by expanding the Default Stop Words to include all numbers, symbols etc. I cant imagine a scenario where seeing them would be useful.

  11. Microsoft Word and BI

    A functionality where we can link Microsoft Word with PowerBI. A way where any text we create in Word can immediately be copy/pasted into PowerBI and vice versa!

    This way, it'll be easier to convert word reports into BI report and vice versa.

    Hope you can look into this option.

    Many thanks,

  12. customizing the word total

    I would love to be able to change the word 'Total' to anything such as Grand Total, YTD Total, or to remove the word completely but still retain the numerical values.

  13. Word Cloud Include List

    Would be nice if word cloud had a Include visual list. Rather then trying to create a list of million words you don't want in your cloud results, would be nice to have key words you like to look for. Easier way to map the included / excluded list. Currently having issue trying to map the relationship with text fields.

  15. Ability to fix chart value labels like a text box,

    Ability to fix chart formats and labels. Name values show "XXX......" when there is room to show the whole word. This for example of pie charts, the labels/value name should be able to appear entirely, even if it takes word wrap. Make it like a text box like function.

  16. Reserved words

    It would be good to have an online, updated list of all reserved words, especially for developing capabilities.json objects and coding enumerateObjectInstances.

  17. Word Tree

    I have large amounts of unstructured text that I would like to be able to analyze using the Word Tree method.

    See the link bellow how awesome this is:

    https://www.jasondavies.com/wordtree/

    I have tried to develop my own custom visual using the algorithm developed by Jason Davies, however, I am not skilled enough to make it work.

    There are also some repositories in git where people developed some pretty good word trees algorithms, which should give you a good place to start.

  19. Data tags for Microsoft Word

    Our company is built on MS Word documents as reports. I'd like to see data tags that could be add to MS Word documents that would auto-update from the data field connected within Power BI. These data tags would be for numbers, charts, tables, and dashboards using the relationships established within Power BI.
