    • Have the Slicler visualization allow an enterable filter

      Lets say that there is a large dataset drilled down to the Zip Code level. Allow the slicer to enter a variable field to filter for, just like we can enter a value when filtering in Excel, or using the visualization options within Power BI. Incorporate it right into the report

      • Provide a option of downloading PBIX file from powerbi.com

        There is a no download pbix file option in powerbi.com. Some persons directly use powerbi.com to generate reports and at the end, if the person who needs it require PBIX file. Then we have to do rework

        • Multiple Screen Support

          I would like to be able to have slicers on one tab on one screen and have that dynamically linked to another tab that filters data in visualizations on a separate screen.

          • SSRS – LookUp, MultiLookUp and LookupSet Functions

            These beautiful features bring a lot of satisfaction to report writer and developers to marge values from two datasets. These functions are is playing a very handy role to combine data from two datasets in a single data region which was not possible in earlier versions of Reporting Services.

            • Integrate data source support for Azure DocumentDB.

              Right now you don't provide that support and it would be really good to get support for DocumentDB as well.

              • Open in Excel button on embedded Excel spreadsheets for view only users

                Please let users with an excel spreadsheet imported into Power BI open it in desktop Excel through the 'Open In Excel button'. This button Is hidden at the moment unless the user has the rights to change Power BI content.

                • Control Ability to Export Data

                  I love the ability to export data from a chart, but one reason that we are using power BI is to stop the spreading of data through spreadsheets. I would like to be able to control who (out of who I shared a dashboard) can and can't export data to excel from a chart or report. This could also work if it was just an option on a report or dashboard I have created (all users would not be able to export data).

                  • Power BI connector for Office365 tasks

                    I use outlook tasks to manage my day-to-day tasks and project actions. I'd love to be able to automatically dashboard and share these to the rest of the project team.
                    Would also be awesome if there was someway to see a visual inside Outlook.

                    • Could we have a script editor in PBI Desktop that allows us to script a series of commands>?

                      It seems very time consuming to have to individually create each new table and series of field calculations. Would be great if I could just script the entire thing?

                              Power BI currently times out after 30 minutes. This interval is too short even for modest data sizes. We connect to CRM and have 1000s of records we are analysing. It can sometimes take 1 hour+ to refresh all the data

                                  • Add Yodlee as a data source

                                    Please add Yodlee (http://www.yodlee.com) as a data source. This would allow SMBs to query their live bank account records for financial reporting and management purposes.

                                    Note that Yodlee has APIs readily available!

                                    • Default templates with a datamodel and UI that can be customized

                                      Having a standard templates for creating visualizations with different type of data models will help jumpstart instead of creating each time from scratch..
