  1. Power BI relative slicer

    We can apply relative visual-level filters to slicers to reduce the list of values that are displayed in the slicer. When we do this it only affects the values that are shown in the slicer, not the filter that the slicer applies to other visuals when we make a selection.
    Once we change the selected range in the slicer we'll see the other visuals update. It would be good to have an opportunity to apply the selected range in the relative visual-level filter to visuals through the slicer immediately before first selecting in the slicer.

  2. Simple conditional formatting for positive and negative values

    Add a check box in the conditional formatting screens for icons, background and font to allow a simple Positive / Negative / Neutral .

    The current layout is confusing for users

  3. Tizen browser (chromium engine) support

    We want to display our dashboards in a Tizen browser (Chromium M56 engine) but it keeps looping back to the login page.

    Currently, MS doesn't support this browser. Would be great if you would.

  4. Make it easier for everyone to choose horizontal slicer layout

    Add a drop down option to slicer to choose "horizontal" list, and name it something meaningful like "button layout"

  5. Combine multiple Gateway in single dataset/report

    Currently, all data sources in a Power BI report/dataset, that are not on cloud, must be available in a single Gateway to work.

    But if the datasources in the report are coming from different Gateways, that doesn't work. It is not possible to combine them for refresh.

    Say I have a Sales Report. It connects to DB A, B and C.

    DB A and B is configured in Gateway X
    DB C is configured in Gateway Y.

    The report creator have been provided access to all of them.

    Now if I try to configure data refresh in PBI Service, it…

  6. Disable or prevent Teams from autocreating App Workspace

    Please introduce a global setting to Prevent Teams from creating PowerBi App Workspace automatically when creating a new Team. As the new Workspaces are detached from Teams/Groups this should be a setting to prevent the App Workspaces beeing clotted with empty Workspaces from all our Teams.

  7. Dremio/Power BI Service Support SSO through DirectQuery

    Dremio serves as our corporate data as a service platform, Power BI Desktop with Dremio works fine but in order for our users to use PowerBI Service we need Power BI to support SSO connections for Dremio. We are looking for SSO (Pass through) connectivity from PowerBI Service to Dremio. Use of an on-premise Gateway would require a single service account and will not work due to limiting security access controls to our data. Please consider adding this support for Dremio.

    Dremio should be included with these SSO DirectQuery sources(bottom of page).

  8. Share personal bookmark with colleagues

    Personal bookmarks cannot be shared. To facilitate collaboration, we need to be able to share a personal bookmark with others in the organization. This way, others can see exactly what I need to share quickly.

  9. Tracking shared dataset with Rest API

    Ability to track a shared dataset using Rest API.
    Although it can be tracked in another way (below article), Rest API would be convenient.

    Track your dataset usage

  11. Power Query parameter to decide to refresh or not

    I would love to have a formula in PQ that decides whether the query needs a full refresh or not. Currently, we can manually select if we want a query to be "included in report refresh". But let's say a huge flat file has not changed since the last refresh - then it's a waste of resource to do a full refresh until it changes. Thanks!

  12. Custom color in Power BI apps

    When creating an app I only get a select few colors to choose from.
    I want to be able to choose a specific color here.

  14. Allow the definition of ambiguous data relationships when creating data models & force the super user to select the desired relationship

    This is a feature that other BI tools like SAP provide, but PBI does not allow it.

    When creating relationships in a data model, PBI does not allow you to create an ambiguous relationship. We need to be able to create ambiguous relationships in a model. When a super user (report writer type) uses data associated with an ambiguous relationship, they should be prompted to choose the relationship they desire for their report.

  17. Allow data sources for a gateway to be filtered and sorted

    It would be useful to sort the data sources defined on a gateway by name, or even better to be able to filter the name. This would make admin simpler.

  18. Table Paging with Play Feature

    Enhance the existing Table visual so that it includes a 'Paging' feature with configurable Rows per Page and add a Play feature that will enumerate through the pages with a configurable pause between each page change. Similar to how the TVs at the the Airport work.

  20. Row Level Security in Data Flows

    It would be helpful if Row Level Security could be defined on entities within a Data Flow, so that a single data flow could be used as a repository for different users (with different access rights) to get data.
