          • Add date table to Azure enterprise content pack

            I need a date table in the Azure enterprise content pack to be able to create a line chart by month that is sorted correctly as the month column is sorted as string. (Oct is sorted before September and that makes the line chart missleading)

            • Outline report visuals

              Please consider adding outlining visuals on the canvas (in the service and the Desktop app) so that when positioning other visuals you can line them up, or avoid overlapping them. A snap-to capability would be very helpful also.

                  • Add an option to show "all" columns in a selected view

                    In many cases I have dynamic columns (for example 3 last months), in such cases when we refreshing the data and new month added it won't be selected in the visualization chart, I have to add it manually. It would be very helpful to have "all columns" option to make the process fully automated.

                    • Don't Cache Credentials

                      There should be an option to not cache credentials for data sources from connections with Power BI. This is a security issue and does not go well with customers.

                        • Power BI Map Routing

                          Can PowerBI Map visualizations show "routing"?

                          For example, a record has "From" and "To" address info (either street address or lat/long). The Map visual would show a "line" linking the two locations. Like an airline route map. The thickness of the line could be volume/expression related.

                          Could be used for logistics route map visualizations.

                            It would be great to be able to go from year and day level by pinching the chart

                            • Search in public data sets

                              Power query in Excel 2010/2013 allows a search button with which we could search for relevant data in a large set of public data sets (e.g. world bank, wikipedia, ...). It would be handy if this would become available in the Power BI Desktop (with refresh capability in the Power BI service)

                                  • Abbility to connect Power BI Desktop to datasources created with the Power BI REST API

                                    Since there a lot of features currently not available with the API (relationships, dynamic web urls etc.) it would be great to be able to create reports with Power BI Desktop using the data sources published with the REST API. Especially when using FIFO tables there is currently no workaround like creating datasources in Power BI Desktop and pushing data to those with the API.
