  4. Authorize custom visuals at tenant

    I love the new crowd sourced visuals, but it is annoying to have to enable them every time you view the report. I understand why you might want that if a general user installs a custom viz...I would like for a way for an admin to install a custom viz for their entire tenant and when that occurs it would show up for everyone in that tenant and I would turn off the need to enable the custom viz at every viewing.

  5. Allow PowerBI Datasets to Reconnect to data sources

    After upgrading from Excel 2013 to 2016, my data source was no longer recognized in PowerBI. There is no way of reconnecting to the updated file, which means all my Dashboards and reports become stale and need to be rebuilt. At least, that's my understanding after working with support so far.

  6. GetData: Support SharePoint.Contents() data source

    Selecting Get Data / SharePoint List creates a data source using SharePoint.Tables(), which gives you only the site information, but not the document contents.

    One can use the Advanced Editor and change it to SharePoint.Contents(). Then you can use a Navigate step to access any file (for example CSV data) from Shared Documents and use them as a Binary data sources.

    Could you please expose SharePoint.Contents() with meaningful Navigation controls as a supported data source, so we don't have to hack it by changing the code every time we link to a new data file?

    Big advantage is, that it…

  8. Connect fields in tables as the same so filters work over multiple tabels, like for example month or date etc.

    If I have multiple tables with information, with in both tables a column with the month or date. When I create one report with charts from both data sources. And I click on a month in a chart based on dataset 1, the chart from dataset 2 is not filtered on that month. So I would like to be able to define both columns as the same time of infromation.

  10. Is it possible to export an cloud report to a local pbix file

    Is it possible to export a report from the cloud/online to a local pbix file ?
    Reason is because you get a full report when connecting to Google Analytics in the online/web based Power BI environment, you do not get this report when you connect to GA through the desktop client

  11. Filter Use Permission While Sharing

    When sharing reports permissions for use of filters (page level, report level, visual level) should be set up by the person who is sharing the Report/Dashboard.

  14. Add Custom Column Formula Help

    In other tools like Tableau and Crystal Reports, when adding a Custom Column/Calculated Field, there is an area that provides functions to use like CASE, ROUND, SUM, etc. Power BI/Power Query provide a link to their general website where users have to spend MORE time searching for what they want. Why not include an easily searchable listbox of functions that can be used along with their purpose, syntax and upon double-clicking, enter the formula in the formula editor where all the user must do is fill out the necessary expressions. In my role I would like to only be able…

  17. Limit the view on the report pages.

    When a dashboard is shared with clients, and the report has different pages, I should be able to limit the access of the pages I want the client to see. I do not want them to see all the pages.

  18. Custom Time Intelligence

    It would be awesome if it was possible to create custom time intelligence. Simliar to what exists in PerformancePoint.

  19. Q&A does not change visulization to combo charts like line and stacked\clustered column chart

    Q&A does not change visulization to combo charts like line and stacked\clustered column chart. It does not recognize “….as line and clustered column chart” or “…..as line and stacked column chart”. Please suggest if there is possible fix.
