  1. Notifications to Shared Users when Published to Web

    It would be nice to notify users when changes to a dashboard have been made automatically after publishing to web.

    Could be a simple checkbox on the Publish to Power BI popup to notify all or some of the users with access to the dashboard

            • Labels Pie Chart

              I wish it were possible to put the pie chart labels within the chart and not only outside, as it is today.

              • Adjustable Tooltips with Drilldowns

                With my current data parameters all my tooltips can only be Count. I understand that they wouldn't work for the top level of the graph, but would it be possible for them to change when drilled down to the lowest level? For example, I have a number of projects grouped by an individual, and would like project descriptions and dates to be available when drilled down to show individual projects. At the moment it constrains it to Count, so the individual projects all show a count of 1 Description and 1 Date.

                Thanks

                • New tool for Power BI webinars

                  I've enjoyed the webinars you guys offer but have banished Flash from my machines for obvious reasons. I've missed the last two including yesterday's DAX best practices presentation. The on24 tool, besides being generally underwhelming, requires Flash to watch the webinars live or recorded. Could you guys switch to a web conference tool that doesn't require Flash? Maybe Skype? Similarly, would you consider uploading those webinar recordings to Youtube?

                  • Select All Filter Pulls the Entire Table

                    When using "Select All" filter check box where I have a joined "1 to many" lookup table, it selects the entire contents of main table. I still must select each item individually to produce the proper table/matrix, which is time consuming, and I do not think was the intent of the "Select All" checkbox.

                    • Connect to SQL Server databases without gateways

                      I believe that technically there's not much difference between connection to SQL Azure and SQL Server exposed on the internet. However the first one can be refreshed/access directly from Power BI and the other requires a gateway application running. Why is that?

                      We are running a separate copy of SQL Server (on a VM in Azure, ironically) specifically for Power BI data and having to manage the whole gateway setup for it feels really excessive and unnecessary.

                      • Depascalise headers

                        Just a small one - SSAS can automatically normalise pascal case headers. All my data source columns are in PascalCase. I have to rename each individually to insert a space. No big deal but a button to automate that would be a real treat!

                          • replicar filtros

                            Olá, sou usuário do Tableau, no tableau temos uma ferramenta muito útil que é possibilidade de se agregar diferentes tipos de filtros, sem perder o filtro anterior. Ou seja, você seleciona por exemplo em uma visualização as vendas totais para um estado, em outra visualização você aplica o filtro de cliente, e em outra você aplica o filtro de totalização por tipo de produto, e todas vão mantendo o filtro anterior!
                            Estou sentindo uma falta muito grande deste recurso no Power BI

                            • [Bug] Y-axis scale not showing correct (-ve) value for Stacked chart

                              I have all negative values on Y-axis like 0, -0.2, -0.4, -0.6,...... -2.4, -2.6 etc.
                              however Cluster chart shows Y-axis scale correctly whereas Stacked chart show scale like 0, -2.0, -4.0 , -6.0, -8.0 which is wrong values but mouse hover on chart shows correct values.

                              please look into this bug.
