  1. Remove the word "Pages" from web embeds when all pages are hidden

    When reports that have all pages hidden are published to the web, the embed has the word "Pages" at the bottom of the embed. Please remove the word "Pages" when all pages of the workbook are hidden. Here is an example: https://www.timesunion.com/interactive/article/Interactive-Control-of-the-NY-state-Senate-is-up-13508562.php

  3. Microsoft Word POWER BI Add-on

    Other than the Devscope Power BI addon which does not work the way I expected, Can Microsoft provide a POWER BI Add-on which allows us to insert or copy a particular visual into the word document? I'd like to copy paste a particular chart/graph from power BI web/desktop like we can copy graphs from Excel into Word. I tried to export the Power BI report into a powerpoint file but since we have over 15 pages in this PBI Report this was not allowed.

    Surely Microsoft can provide this integration between their own products?

    I have been using Snagit…

  4. Embed Power BI Objects into Excel, Word & PowerPoint

    Add the ability to embed Power BI Objects i.e. reports, dashboards into Excel, Word & PowerPoint. These objects can then be manually or automatically updated. This would allow users to create board reports etc with real-time tables/charts.

  6. Word Cloud (Custom Visual) - make it case-insensitive

    The Word Cloud Custom Visual seems to be case-sensitive, e.g. I see 3 entries for litigation / Litigation / LITIGATION. Please make it case-insensitive by default. Perhaps there should be an option, but I think most people expect case-insensitive.

  10. Power BI as a Data Source for Microsoft Word

    Power BI is a great tool for Data visualization but not the best for List/Print Reporting.

    Paginated Reports are good but are not suited for End Users.

    In order to have an easy way to allow End users to create List/Print Reports on their own I believe Microsoft Word is a great tool for the purpose.

    The solution would be the following:
    - Use the XML Mapping functionality in Microsoft Word in order to connect to a Power BI Data Source.
    - Use the smart tags in order to allow the user to select the data data it wants.

    Microsoft…

  12. Page Refreshing a Second Time

    I have a page where I had to change the default column width (including Word Wrap) in order to make it fit without a horizontal scroll bar appearing.
    Initially my problem was that my settings were not being retained. When I tabbed to another page and then returned, I had to re-size the columns.
    Now the settings are retained, but this page refreshes a 2nd time when you tab onto it.
    Not a major problem ... but there is some little glitch!

  13. Add Review comments like it is there in MS Word or Power Point

    Add a panel to share comments while reviewing reports and dashboards. A similar feature like "New Comment" in Microsoft Word. This will help a lot in getting reviews and feedbacks from the stakeholders and customers on the reports and dashboards.

  14. Allow users to attach other objects to a Power BI dashboard (PowerPoint & Word documents, a Yammer Link).

    It would be extremely useful if users could combine other documents & objects with Dashboard reports. Word/PowerPoint documents could solve a number of issues. A Yammer feed could increase workgroup efficiency.

  15. Automatic table of content like in WORD (bookmarks)

    Who has already built a beautiful PowerBI but with many tabs?
    In general, beyond a dozen tabs, the user must use the horizontal scrollbar to find the tabs that are "hidden".
    To facilitate access to the different tabs, I would like to have the possibility to create an automatic table of contents (in a tab of my choice) as in WORD for example. Each line in this automatic table of contents would correspond to the name of the tab, and would be a default bookmark pointing to that tab.
    What do you think ?

  18. Generate audit word documentation for pbx files

    External and internal audit is requesting to have proper documentation about pbx files used in production by showing in a structured way the used sources, formulas and calculations for each measure, tables, fields and visuals for each report as well as the manually added descriptions of fields used. Additionally screenshots of the relationship view, used code in the advanced editor as well as source permissions have to be shown. The information is all available in the pbx file, but there is no automatice support by Microsoft to produce an audit state-of-the-art word document which provides all detail information available along…

  20. Re-size SQL Import Window

    It would be nice if the SQL statement window could be re-sized and have the text wrap to make writing the query easier (like the SQL statement window in PowerPivot).
