  1. export data that contains link elements do not work

    Exporting data just works great; however, if the data view contains a link/href the excel with data is not created.

    Please help me on this, as it's important for users adopt this great technology.

    Thank you.

    • Export Power BI visual matrix to Excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.

      I want a way to export a visual matrix (already assembled in my Power BI report) and take it to excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.

      • Tooltips for buttons

        Since the July release it is possible to use tooltips on tables.
        It would be great if this option can be used on buttons in the action section.
        Now we have 'Back', 'Bookmark' and 'Q&A'
        Is it possible to add 'Tooltip' for buttons, so it's possible to use (for example) an info button, which shows information about the current report or visual for customer purposes?

        • Dataflows linked entities Pro Licence

          The new Dataflows concept looks really interesting and holds massive potential to change the BI landscape.
          Currently linking dataflows is only applicable to Premium licences. Based on how Dataflows are pitched as an Excel type approach to ETL I find it unusual that linked entities are only appropriate for Premium licences, especially since the analogy of an entities is a 'cell' in Excel. This is like shipping Excel with only one cell in it as a product for non-premium users. Premium capacities are only appropriate for huge organisations with hundreds of licences to make it financially viable. I would consider…

          • Include Reports/Dashboards from Multiple Workspaces in One App

            Similar to ideas around creating multiple apps from one workspace, it would be very beneficial to have the ability to create a high-level app that includes reports from multiple workspaces. For example, our executive team would like to see specific reports from sales, accounting, and fields ops in one app instead of navigating to three different apps/workspaces to view the appropriate reports.

            • Allow 'Edit Interactions' for Filters pane, or add new collapsable "Canvas" pane

              I like the new Filters pane, but I think you really want to think about allowing the same kind of "Edit Interactions" for fields in the Filters pane as you do for any other visual.

              Here's why: I would dearly like to ditch slicers from a report in favour of the Filters pane in order to free up precious screen real-estate, but often slicers are set up so that they only filter *some* things and not others, whereas things in the Filters pane are global, as far as I can tell.

              I was hoping that the filters pane was going…

              • Page level audit log

                Anyone who uses Power BI and audits its logs will only be able to audit until dashboard level. The idea is to increase the level of detail to page level so that you can know which pages are beeing visited the most/least and by which users. This new information will enable you to modify your dashborads accordingly, enhance them and much more.

                • disable auto time intelligence

                  Make the "Auto Time Intelligence" feature a global option that can be turned off for all subsequent PBIX files.

                  • Please allow monthly refresh of data on the schedule refresh option in server. (and let us choose the date, like 4th of every month)

                    It is a suggestion for allowing monthly refresh where the user can select the date on which it needs to be refreshed as well

                    • Axis inversion

                      There should be a field button for inverting the axis. For example, instead of the Y-axis moving upwards from 0 to 100 it should be able to flip and start at 100 and move upwards to 0.

                        Add the option to filter By Top X%.
                        for example: show the top 80% (Like in Excel pivot Table)

                        • DAX Query Language Visual

                          I see big value in creating a visual that can display the results of a DAX query. One way this could be deployed is a follows.
                          * Add the new visual to the report canvas
                          * Write a DAX query that returns a table (of course) and add this to the visual
                          * The visual would respect any cross filtering coming from the report just like any other visual.

                          This would give report writers very granular control to display records without having to use a table visual and a measure that triggers the display of the correct records.

                            • Feature to disable connection in Power BI Gateway

                              In Power BI gateway we have available features to add and remove connection; but we do not have anything like enable/disable. However a feature to be able to disable connection will be helpful when resetting/changing password in a connection. Or sometime we want to hold a particular database to be accessed from Power BI when some maintenance activity is in progress in that database. So it would be helpful if we can control the connectivity to different sources in the gateway using disable/enable.

                                • Change order of filters in filter pane

                                  I love the new filter experience, much better. It would be great if the filters in the filter pane could be ordered by the author.
                                  At times there are filters that have a natural hierarchy (Region/Plant; Manager/Employee) and presenting them in the wrong sequence causes the users to become confused.

                                  • Machine Learning Quality Check

                                    Power BI has a variety of easy, built-in ML models/algorithms in desktop, sever, and Q&A. Can we get some simple built in quality check pop-ups? Something like a ROC curve with a Thumbs-up/Thumbs-down symbol or a note that says "Hey, this model fit 100% of your data points. It's probably over-fitting."

                                    • Allow bookmarks and bookmark folders to be exported to pdf

                                      The Export to pdf functionality allows us to export or print the report pages. But it would be nice if we could also print/export the bookmarks (all of them or just a folder/group)

                                      • Activity Monitor Enterprise Gateway

                                        It would be very interesting to have the option to see the activity carried out through the gateway in the Power BI service, so that it can be seen in a simple way, the actions of updating the data sets that has been carried out from a gateway / connection, by way of the update history of the data sets but from the administration of the gateway.

                                        Regards

                                        • power bi embedded printing

                                          For Power BI Embedded, i would like to see a facility to print a dashboard page (not the whole report) to PDF.

                                          My user group regularly asks about this. Using Snipping Tool is not really good enough.

                                          My dashboard has 20 pages so printing the whole report to PDF would not work.
