    • Add groupings for columns in InfoNav

      InfoNav should support "groupings". For example, for a query like "average weight by age for ages grouped by 10" would show a column 0-10 and the average weight of all data that fits in that range, 11-20, and all the data, ect. This would be really useful in cases like age where there are a lot of independent values.

        • Add time and or date on x axis for bubble/scatter charts

          Add time and or date on x axis for bubble/scatter charts, so that you do not have to convert the no of minutes into an equivalent hour to understand how far during the time period the data is

          • x and y coordinates

            I want to show a map on my dashboard based on x- and y- coordinates. It seems to me PowerBI only works with longitude and latitude?

            I want to be able to use the same coordinate system as GPS (WGS84)

              • Azure Cosmos DB connector with Power BI service for schedule data refresh

                Presently, a report can be built using Azure Cosmos DB connector as Data Source in power BI desktop. As the connector has not been integrated with power bi services, so that the data cannot be refreshed in Power BI Service, for the data refresh, its need to do a manual refresh from desktop and publish the report in power BI services to get the updated data. We believe that Azure Cosmos DB connector should also work for power BI services and it will be grateful for the schedule data refresh.

                    • Measure Error Notification for linked Report

                      When connecting reports to PowerBI datasets, there is no way of knowing that an update to the dataset will break the reports down stream.
                      For example if I rename a measure and publish my dataset, any report using that measure will break but we will not be notified until a user finds the problem.

                          • More control in filter pane - end users able to adjust filters but unable to remove them

                            When setting up a report we can now choose which filters will be displayed/hidden/locked on the filter pane. Excellent!!

                            However, it is still possible to remove the filter by the end user by hitting "x". By clicking reset to default all filters will reappear. However not every user will get this directly or they can be removed accidentally.

                            It would be a great feature if there was an option where we can select whether the filters displayed on the filter pane should be removable or not by end users.

                            • desktop Edit query search for fields

                              When you import tables that are super wide and you only need a few fields and you want to remove all others, it would be great if you could search for the fieldname to quickly access it.

                              • add possibility to delete unused datasets from app

                                Currently you cannot delete unused datasets when an app is published. To do so you have to unpublish an app but this makes you lost all defined access permissions and app settings.

                                    • Bidirectional Filter in the new Filter Pane

                                      I want to delete my filter visuals in ouer Reports and use only the new Filter Pane because its much better and much faster then the Visualbased slicer/filters BUT the filter card does influence the other filter cards in the Filter Pane.(No Bidirecitonal Filtering)

                                      Please enable the support for this, as Option and the Filter Pane will be the best new thing for Reports this Year.

                                      • Report schedule refresh

                                        Would it be possible for you to provide a report with scheduled refresh status for each report in a given Work Area in order to create a dashboard by myself?

                                        Thanks
