  5. Hide the report page based on the user.

    Hiding the pages while sharing the report is an important option.

    E.g. If i am developing a report for 10 metrics and which I dont want some metrics owners can see other metrics. So if we have any option to select the page and hide/unhide. It will avoid the irrelevant page for the irrelevant user in the group.

  6. Dataflow Permissions

    Just like outstanding requests to assign app/workspace permission at a folder level within the app, we need to be able to give some users access to just individual dataflows without giving them access to the entire workspace that the dataflows are contained in.

  7. Allow subscriptions to personal bookmarks

    Please add the ability to subscribe to personal bookmarks. The "Subscribe" feature currently sends a snapshot of the default view with no ability to customize filters in the subscription.

    The recent addition of personal bookmarks allows our users to customize reports as needed, and they have been asking for a way to get these personalized bookmark views sent by email. If you could extend the personal bookmarks to the subscription options that would be very helpful.

  8. Stop Dataset refresh

    Please provide option to stop refreshing dataset after refreshing manually...

    If there are any performance issues in database this would lock down the table...

    I even observed that reports doesnt get published until the refresh is done...

  9. URL as function for buttons

    Please add the possibility to enter URL's as a function/action for buttons/images. This way it would be very easy to, for example, place links to related websites (i.e. sources) and a button to toggle to a "fullscreen-mode" (?chromeless=1).

  10. Fix Releative Date Slicer / UTC issue.

    I know I can change my data to be reflected in UTC but then i suddenly show, for example, Invoices paid Septmeber 30th as being paid in October. this is so wrong!

    You simply need to change PBI where date slicers are reflecting local time and not UTC. I cannot display all of our financial data improperly (as UTC).

  11. Enterprise Dataflow: Share among all Workspaces

    Love the new Dataflow feature! Really transforms the way we used to bring data to PowerBI.

    I work for a *really* big organization, we are on Premium Capacity and have to work with millions of records each data. Obviously we also have many teams working on this data, but for different purposes and departments. This brings me to the problem we always have with Dataset and currently with Dataflows too.

    We all end up loading the same set of data again and again on various Workspaces (Dataflow) and Reports (Dataset)!

    Solution: Why not allow an Organization with say, Premium Capacity,…

  12. Cross filtering on multiple (custom) visuals

    Achieve cross filtering on multiple visuals (in addition to slicer ) in Power BI. After applying of additional filtering on one of the visual it would not reset already applied filtering on other visuals.

  13. Extract comments from API

    With the newly released functionality of commenting for reports, it would be great to be able to retrieve these using the API in order to create summaries or overviews of the comments in a separate report.

  15. Deleting/copying/moving mutliple pages at once

    Allow for deletion/movement/selection of multiple pages at once, as you are able to in Excel. This is critical on reports that need to be revamped.

  16. Denodo Direct Query in Power BI Report Server

    Denodo Direct Query has been available in Power BI Server but not Power BI Report Server yet. Can we make this feature also available in PBI RS?

  18. PBIRS full screen button

    Could a full screen button be added to PowerBI Report Server? Possibly to the far right of the status bar where the page tabs appear.

  19. Power BI pro to have same features Premium has

    As original premium whitepaper said, premium supposed to tackle large enterprise deployment and large number of 'readers'; therefore, pro to have the same features provided by premium; and premium to offer better performance or licensing combo offer. [e.g. we have over 450 e5 licenses with power bi pro but less functionalities.

  20. notification

    Push notifications did not work on the New Workspace preview.
    When I pin a new dashboard in the New Workspace, the app or service did not push any notifications on Power BI, so my colleagues will not know what I've published. Please help to solve this bug. Manually notify them is a stupid action.
