  1. Hide whole tab row

    Option where you can hide the whole tab row and not only hide tab by tab (where you can't hide the last active tab). This would be super useful, if one would go and build User Interface within the Power BI report itself - then there is no need for the tabs on the bottom.

    • When in report the report name in path should go to properties like in SSRS 2018

      When you get sent a link and someone is asking for addition to a subscription you have to click the report, then go to the folder and click to get into the manage page for that report. SSRS 2018 had it so the path report name was a link to the properties and saved a lot of headache.

      • add row(s) with DAX

        Sometimes we just need to add a row to our table with minimum hazzle.

        • force locale through PBI Desktip to Service

          Most of my country uses their browser by default settings which is in English. However, most of our local machines have local locale (which is not english). We use dots for 1k seperator and commas for decimals.
          Whenever we publish reports to the service, it's viewed in the browser with commas instead of dots and vice versa.
          I would like to have the option to force the locale settings from Desktop to Service or any other solution at all.

          • Theme Designer

            Simply put, make it easy to create a theme in Power BI Desktop. Let us export it for later use or others to use.

            Creating .json files is ideally not something I want to do

            • Allow pining tiles from multiple work spaces

              It would be nice to be able to create a dashboard with visuals from reports that are in a different work space. This way you could categorize work spaces to fit your needs while still allowing a way to get an overview of key reports.

                • Deployment options: checkboxes for report, dataset and dataflow

                  I can understand that some users would get confused by this but it would enable clarity for advanced users.

                  As a Power BI Developer, I would like an enhancement to the deployment experience. i

                  When publishing a pbix file, an advanced option (hidden by default) that could be optionally expanded with check boxes to deploy as
                  • report
                  • dataset
                  • data flow

                  Obviously if the structure of the report required the dataset to be deployed and the report was checked then the dataset would be checked and greyed out.

                  Currently if I want deploy only the dataset to be…

                  • group level filter & multiple assignment of visual level filter

                    Being able to create a group of filters, like slicer's groups, so you don't need to insert for each visual all the filters you want. Interesting when we are talking 4+ filters.

                    Being able to, when multiple visuals are selected, insert the visual level filters, affecting all the selected visuals.

                    • The last refresh attempt failed because of an internal service error

                      I receive an error msg on Power BI Service "The last refresh attempt failed because of an internal service error " when refreshing my data. I talked to MS Support team and they suggested me to delete the old dataset and upload it again. Why it does not work when I republish the dataset. Isn't the republish should have overwritten the old record?

                          Do we have to option to hide power queires ? The purpose is we don't want the end users to see the steps automated to get the final output?

                                      • Move bar containing list of pages to the top of report.

                                        Currently the list of pages, that a report contain, are listed in bottom of the report in a bar. There should be some customizable option to keep the bar either in top or bottom. There is requirement from our client that bar at the top of the report would be better.

                                        • Relative Date Slicer: Can't Click on Slicer Options

                                          We are using relative date slicer on our reports. This slicer works fine on Power BI Desktop application. But when I publish this report and access it on various browsers we are not able to select values from first drop down i.e. Last/Next/This as well as second dropdown i.e. Days/Week/...
                                          We have tested this on chrome, edge, internet explorer and we observed the same behaviour.
                                          We are using the latest version of Power BI desktop application and we are using Pro License.
                                          Need a solution for this issue.
