  2. Give the Tab bar in PBI similar features as the Taskbar in Windows.

    Give the Tab bar in PBI similar features as the Taskbar in Windows.
    1. Enable the Tab list to be vertical so Tab names display like a vertical pop out list on the left or right. Some of my Tab names are necessarily long and users could find the needed Tab if it listed vertically rather than clicking the yellow "+".
    2. Enable the Tab list to display at the top also.

  5. Bulk import of files in a folder into individual tables

    There are good capabilities for importing a folder full of files (delimited text in my case) and importing them all into one table.

    However I could not find a way to import them all in bulk so that each file becomes its own table, has automatic datatype detection run etc.

  6. Add Serbian currency in list of available currencies

    It is quite silly for not having list of all available currencies, so please add Serbian (RSD) as well...

  7. Drillthrough in Mobile SSRS reports on the Windows 10 app is not working

    The drillthrough arrow icon appears in the top right corner of the report part that is configured with drillthrough but any mouse click on the part or a particular chart series does nothing.

  8. Quick insights are only available on dashboards and not on individual reports.

    Can we have quick insights available for reports published on power bi service ? These are available only for dashboards at present.

  9. Allow field aggregation by percentile

    Currently it's quite easy to aggregate fields by count, mean, median. Can you add top percentile as an aggregate?

  10. Odata- Add support for Type = "Edm.GeogpraphyPoint"

    Odata- Add support for Type = "Edm.GeogpraphyPoint"

    Can you please add support for this odata geographic datatype?

    I want to drop a field of this datatype directly into a map rather than allocate one field to latitude and one field to longitude.

    Currently mapdata co-ordinates loaded to Power BI has to be of datatype "Decimal number". It must be loaded from an odata source as two separate fields, one for Longitude and one for Latitude.

    HOwever odata supports a datatype called "GeographyPoint". See below for an example json metadata definition of a field with this datatype.

    the metadata description .. …

  11. Simple Number Range Filter Slider for Interactive Reports

    I'm looking for a simple range filter to allow the report to be interactive without have the users do less than or greater than editing. It would be a slicer (which can go be styled to be vertical or horizontal). There could be 1 or 2 sliders. It would take a list of numbers (whole or decimal). It would automatically do a min max calculation and that would be used as the upper and lower limits (filters). Those upper and lower limits could be overridden. The slider could adjust either only one end of both ends of the range. The…

  12. Give me confirmation that my feedback was submitted, and let me out of this feedback loop.

    I just don't want to step through and answer all those questions, especially after three frustrating hours of trying to figure out the Spark issue I posted about previously.

  13. option to change and edit hover text on charts

    An option to change the hover text on the charts may help to represent the data better. like custom title option , custom hover text also makes sense.

  14. Make the scroller for the "field" well (far right) slightly bigger.

    UX

    The up/down scroller for the fields/table selection area is very small, would help to have it slightly larger.

  15. No inner/outer rings for preview/early features (related to On/Off feature switch)

    Need On/Off switch for any feature. Particularly those have security or privacy implications

  16. Power BI needs language to make visual properties dynamically changeable.

    I know DAX is a data centric language but Power BI needs commands or functions to make visual properties dynamically changeable.
    It would be great if PBI allowed value passing to the "Format" fields. My problem is that I use a slicer to present different metrics but I can't change the Start and End values for the different metrics since those are currently typed in. When one metric has a scale of 0-to-100 while another metric has a scale of 0-to-5 the second metric displays like a flat line. If I could lookup the scale when changing metrics and applying…

  17. Connecting to a Data model in PBI Desktop file from Excel

    Connecting to a Data model in PBI Desktop file from Excel – I know this is not in the preview of the PQ team – but I would be grateful if you can nudge the Excel team in this direction – Just being able to connect to the Data model in the PBI online of absolutely no use.

  18. Desktop layout tools

    we have built a single page app that is 1280 * 5000 pixels and one of the things that became apparent was that we needed better layout tools as an example PowerPoint has great tools for layout out elements. Another thing we need is to lock elements into place so that they are not selectable

  19. Clear all cached data on Refresh (SSAS Tabluar report, Connect Live)

    We have a report with multiple pages that uses a Live SSAS Tabular data source. It seems that data is cached in the PowerBI Service and users need to click refresh on each sheet to get the latest data. A "refresh" should clear all cached results so users see a consistent view of the data on all pages.

  20. Add standard control/scroll wheel scaling for database views

    Add standard control/scroll wheel scaling for database views. I have to zoom the database views up to see the details, but cannot seem to do this as I can with Excel.

    -thanks
