  2. Allow option to disable smart word selection

    In the advanced editor, selecting part of a word including the punctuation also selects the extra characters. This is terrible when you are selecting code that has parens or slashes and don't need the whole word. Please respect the selection begin and end points.

  5. Multi-select feature (Feb 2018) for word cloud visual

    The Word Cloud visual does not work with the February 2018 Update Feature "Multi-select data points across multiple Charts" to cross filter through Word Cloud and other visuals. This should be fixed.

  7. WordCloud Visualization: Allow ordering of words in descending count order

    I must say upfront that I detest word clouds. I detest them because of the cognitive load required to make sense of the jumbled mess of words that are presented to the viewer. One small change to a word cloud however makes them ENORMOUSLY useful: arrange the words in descending count order. In doing so, the reader sees a story unfold in the size, font, and (optionally) color of the words presented. I know this works from experience. I was part of a development group inside my large company that implemented this approach on a system that…

  8. Search Worklog for key words

    We would like to see a feature to enable us to search the work log of all incidents for specific key words or phrases and then provide a list of all incidents that have said key words in their work log. This will help teams such as OCC pull out specific incidents that have action in the work log with their team name or a specific issue so we can track multiple incidents for the same problem, etc.

  10. matrix column

    Width of a column set up in centimeter (Matrix)

    On the matrix visual, it would be nice if we could define the width of a column in centimeter.
    Each column would have the width specified and if the « word wrap boutton » activated, it would display as many line as needed.

  12. Add the Microsoft Word/Excel "Insert Icon" to Desktop Power BI

    Microsoft Word/Excel just got this simple, great feature.

    Please add to Desktop Power BI, so I don't have to copy/paste these icons from Word/Excel :)

    Really neat for quick presentations.

  13. Matrix column header space limitation?

    I have placed descriptions into Matrix column headers (all hdrs are centered, word wrap on, sergoe (Bold), font 13).

    Longest header spans 3 physical wordwrapped rows. Headers in deskptop look perfect. Same headers in reporting services have 3rd row display chopped at the second-and-one-half row.

    Any ideas? Thanks

  14. Data Connector for MS Word Documents (.docx)

    Create a connector for MS Word Documents (.docx) in which the user can choose to conect to the text contents, table contents, etc.

    Many companies keep standard reports in .docx and it would be nice to import them in Power BI/Power Query to analyse the data as word clouds for example.
    Besides that, the .docx format is a zip form of xml, so this would not be difficult to implement.

  15. KPI visual - ability to change word "goal" to "benchmark"

    The KPI visual is very good, but sometimes I need to benchmark the value versus a TARGET, other times I need to benchmark the value versus a benchmark control group. E.g. you want to see if your stocks portfolio is outperforming the market, or if your company is outperforming its competitors. Using the word "goal" can be misleading in the latter case. We should be able to replace the word "goal" with any other word of our choice, e.g. "benchmark", or "industry average" etc.

    Thanks!

  17. Add Word Cloud to the list of Visualizations

    Along with the other amazing visualizations already present , it would be of great help in text analytics if Word Cloud is also added.

  18. It would be helpful if I could export into Word rather than just xlsx or csv.

    I have a PBI report using a Word Cloud and narratives from an Excel file. The Word Cloud has about 15 categories and is interactive with Narratives showing explanations for the items in my Word Cloud. So when users want to download the narratives for a specific word, it loads into one cell in Excel which makes presentation of the data difficult to read. Some of the narratives are over 100 words so when it shows up in a cell, it is a problem.

  19. Retain the formatting of columns when Power BI reports are exported to excel

    Requesting Power BI team to include this feature of retaining the formatting of columns when Power BI reports are exported to excel.

    Just like SSRS and Paginated reports when exported to excel has the "Word wrap" and other rich formatting, we would need the same for Power BI reports when exported to excel as well.

    Thank you

  20. Treemap Label Modification

    There is no option to format the text in the category label. I would like some basic abilities for text manipulation on display like:

    Word Wrap
    Size of Text
    Color of Text
    Position (both vertical and horizontal)

    If possible I would also love an option to have the text auto format based on the size of the box
