    • Dynamicaly set filters - Based on User/Viewer

      It would be awesome with a way to set filters in a report based on the viewers Account ID.

      This would work very well with another suggestion to have a global/Dashboard_level slicer.

      • SDMX connection

        SDMX is one of the main protocols used for transmit statistical data from International organizations such has Eurostat. It is currently possible to connect PowerBI to it, but there is a lot of work to do, concerning the query. If we have a get data source for SDMX would be great.

        • Tooltip - apparition configuration

          Thanks for the new tooltip feature. However, the tooltips disappear automatically when we move the cursor outside the tooltip area. It's not convenient when a tooltip contain a field with an URL. It's impossible to click on the URL because the tooltip disappear...

          • SAP MSS connection to Power BI

            Several Logistic Operations teams around the globe run SAP MSS. Kindly review the chance to connect this SAP environment to Power BI.

              • Easy access to dashboards for users outside of the organization via an Extranet Portal

                I frequently get requests to collaborate on O365 outside of my organization via an Extranet Portal (externally shared SharePoint Online site). When I share a dashboard with external users, they have to access the link via their email with no ability to easily access them via the External Portal

                It would be nice to be able to embed Power BI dashboards shared with the user currently logged in.

                  • "calculated members"

                    Users want to use any metric against a set of time that is dynamic. Thus, we'd like to have calculated members so we can create YTD or MTD or same week last year or any time set that can be used with any metric. Currently the functions force the model to put YTD with one metric and to do YTD with a different metric, you have to define it as a new measure. We want to apply these calculated members against any measure. Apparently calculated members can be created in MDX but not in DAX, which is more used in…

                    • Export finest grain data to Excel for a visual based on an SSAS Data Source

                      Would like to grab lowest-level data for a visual, to export to Excel, from a visual based on an Analysis Services data source. This would be a competitive advantage over Tableau, as Tableau does *not* support this for Analysis Services data sources.

                      • Mobile App for "Publish to Web"

                        Power BI Mobile App is nice, and "Publish to Web" is also nice.
                        But "Publish to Web"'s web page does not suite for Mobile device.
                        I want to use "Publish to web" reports on mobile app.

                        • Re-size SQL Query Edit Window

                          It would be really helpful if the window for editing an exisiting SQL statement could be re-sized. This would make the query editing much easier.

                          • Enable the option to jump from a visual to another powerbi page

                            Custom Visuals for KPI's are emerging, and it would be fantastic if it was possible to define another PowerBi page, that you wil be directed to when clicking the KPI/Visual. The other page will then show much more detail and give the needed overview.

                                • Change the colour of an individual data point on a waterfall chart.

                                  This option is available for bar charts, but not for waterfall charts which seems weird. Sometimes it is useful to pick out individual 'steps' in a waterfall for further detailed analysis or explanation, which is not currently possible in PowerBI.

                                    • More Control of Chart Appearance

                                      More control how the charts are visualised and there layouts is a real need. Currently you can only use the standard template provided. Being able to control the order of metrics in the legend of a line chart (to place the most important first rather than just alphabetically), to easily be amend the axis appearance, change the size of the title and other features such as this that make using charts so simple in excel.

                                      This would make creating dashboards in the limited space of the tabs much easier, as well as leaving the users of the published dashboard an…

                                        • "Select all" feature on table

                                          It would be great if it were possible to immediately add all columns of a table to a table visual.
                                          Dragging the table or a 'Select all' option in the context menu could achieve this.
