    • Mobile-app QR scanner used to add report/dashboard to user's personal workspace long-term

      The new QR scanner feature on mobile app only allows a chart or report to be viewed in real-time or while the scanner is focused on the QR code. It would help improve adoption rates and break down barriers to access if scanning the QR code presented the user with an option to add the report to their own personal workspace, much like sharing a content pack in the Power BI online version.

      • Q&A to support data stored outside PBI (MSSQL)

        Currently, Q&A only supports data that is imported into PBI. It would be very beneficial to implement Q&A for data that is stored outside PBI or stored on customer SQL servers.

        • Axis Category Text - Allow adjustment for better fit

          On bar charts, the text for axis categories does not always fit (i.e. words appended with ellipses ...) Is it possible to allow for a better fit by treating the bars as one column and the axis text as another, and allow the user to adjust the column widths like in a table?

            • Excel like grid feature and formula enablement in query view grid for data interation and preperation

              There are years of grid enablement features embedded in Excel that are critical in data preparation and analysis severely lacking and limiting in powerbi desktop forcing business users to stay in excel, this includes basics like user defined formula's and libraries sharable and accessible across business users as opposed to hard coded internal to a single file only

              • Handle model schema changes (new measures, tables etc) without forcing recreation of content.

                PowerBi should handle Power Pivot data model schema changes (new calculated measures etc) better than it does.

                Currently if you make changes and reupload the model to OneDrive for business your changes do not come into Power BI. You have to delete the data source and re import it to get your changes to show up.

                This requires recreating all dashboards and reports linked to the data source.

                      • embed

                        Provide greater options for embedding reports in public web pages. Remove the white page on grey look and make it work as a responsive element in a website.

                          Q&A es algo increíble! La facilidad con la podemos escribir y hacer las preguntas en un lenguaje natural y obtener las respuestas al instante es simplemente impresionante y único...si hablas inglés y entiendes inglés.

                          Lamentablemente, el único idioma soportado en estos momentos es el inglés y es ésta la razón por la cual tenemos esta nueva sugerencia.

                          Necesitamos el Q&A o PreguntasyRespuestas totalmente en español! (por favor)

                              • Dashboard name and description displays as Uppercase eventhough entered as lowercase

                                No matter how the name or description entered in dashboard,it turns out to uppercase.This won't look good if we have to enter a small description along with heading.so there should be flexibility

                                  The current Mekko chart forces column heights to 100%. This is no bueno. We want them to be varying segment heights.

                                        • Paste query into Preview Editor

                                          Copy/pasting a query out of the preview editor is useful, but it should be easier to paste a query back into the preview editor.

                                          I often paste a query into my favorite text editor in order to bulk edit / refactor / etc.

                                          If I copy all the M back to my clipboard, it doesn't work to paste back onto the preview editor.

                                          Pasting a query from the text editor should work the same way as pasting from a query you copied from the editor.
