  1. 图表查看数据可复制

    在图表模式下,右键查看数据只是简单展示数据,希望可选择并复制,以便粘贴到其他数据平台。同时,图表展示数据和相同图表下导出的数据不一样,希望增加导出选项,可选择导出样式

  2. Make PowerBI simple: PowerBI desktop should work without DAX for casual users

    Transform vs Modelling
    The Transform capability is great, because i can do everything I need with the UI. This is not the case with Modelling.

    Modelling
    Having used PowerBI Desktop on many datasets, I found that it should be made simpler for non DAX experts.A UI based interface including some "AI" Assisted intelligence could easily achieve the below and make the product reach a new category of users.
    1. Matrix and Table visuals
    • Key features such as Column renaming, Cumulative values, Comparisons Year on Year etc. are missing and require quite a bit of DAX fiddling. I know that…

  3. Web - Report View Control for pbix desktop files

    It would be nice to have a (VS) report view control to render pbix files and/or uploaded pbix files (internal report server).
    Similar to the Report View Control to view SSRS Reports in Windows and WEB applications, using rdl and rdlc files.

  4. Custom Visuals available when exporting to Power Point

    When exporting to Power Point. If in your report were custom visualisations, an error shouldn't be displayed. Hiding the visualisation or displaying a image of it should be performanced

  5. Having multiple color palettes/themes for different dimensions/visualizations and different hierarchies (drill-downs)

    Power Bi just implemented custom themes but what this does is applies the same theme to all the visualizations. This is could be very confusing to the end user. Suppose you have multiple metrics (like sales, profits, margins, etc.) that are sliced by geographical region as one dimension and say Item category as another dimension. Currently the same top 5 colors of the theme would be used for the top 5 geographical regions and top 5 item categories.

    Each dimension should be using a distinct color palette. That is say California and Clothes should not be using the exact same…

  7. Hyperlinks on tiles, especially graphics

    Pinning a graphic from a report onto the dashboard, maintains the link to the report. It would be good to disable the link. This is required due ot image limitations that need to be on a public site. Perhaps have the same options as "inserting an image" from the dashboard and make these options available for all tiles, not only graphics

  9. Automate or improve report-splitting for multiple dashboards / or link PBI-desktop tabs to services tabs

    I have 5 reports with 5 tabs each. I also have 5 dashboards, each linked to one of the reports. All of these originate from a single PBI-desktop file with all 25 tabs in them.

    Each time I make some changes in the desktop file and publish it, I have to save the main report into the 5 copies and remove 20 out of 25 tabs in each. Then I have to save the tabs to the dashboards again. This is a tedious, time consuming proces. I wish this proces was somehow automated or improved.

    Any of the following would…

  10. Reproduce the PowerPivot Report Data Feed that lets you connect to an SSRS 2012+ Report Feed.

    Add a data sources that allows PowerBI Desktop to connect to an SSRS Report feed in the same way as PowerPivot Data Feed for SSRS. We use SSRS as a data source for users that don't have sql connections as it provides a way to manage security via SSRS folders. It also provides an existing report to PowerBI for additional analytics

  12. Signup is broken

    As part of the process to signup for Power BI, MS sends an EMail to verify your EMail address with a "Yes, that's me" link. The link goes to a "Create your account" page which says, bluntly, "We sent a verification code to {email address}. Enter the code to complete signup." Except that I have received no code and there is no mechanism to request or receive a code. THE PROCESS IS FLAWED.

  15. Put different calculations by agregation level

    In chart navigation, I would like to be able to change the calculation at the higher aggregation levels. For example, when I display the day I use sum and when I display month I want to display average or the last record of the month.

  17. Dynamic table visualization

    Here I have a query that populates result sets dynamically by taking an input parameter.Now the result sets does not have equal number of columns neither they have same column name.So , while using that query to visualize a result set in a table,when I pass another value for the parameter in the query,it creates different result set and as the columns of the new result set is not included in the table value fields,the table view gets invalid. And I have to show result of the query in same visualization.

    Is it possible to have a visualization on Report…

  18. Custom viz in Office store is downloaded as .zip and there is no .pbivz file.

    Change the file extension to .pbiviz then I can import to Power BI Desktop and it works.

    It seems that Custom visual files in Office store are downloaded as zip file. It should be downloaded as zip file.

  20. Allow viewers to rate dashboard/reports (feedback for creators)

    I personally struggle a lot of times trying to understand the relevance of a dashboard or how up-to-date it is. Especially in large organizations, there are a myriad of boards and it easy to get lost.

    Idea: Enable reviewers/visitors to rate dashboard based on relevance and information provided - similar to the GitHub star rating or Amazon product rating.

    In short: A feedback system for the creator.
