      • BUG: PowerBI Desktop reveals objects hidden in tabular model

        Hi,

        While an object (eg. measure) marked as hidden in the tabular model does not show up in Excel, does show up in PowerBI desktop, when the user selects "View Hidden" even for the users who has read-only permissions on the tabular model.

        Can this behavior be changed, so that PowerBI Desktop does not reveal the objects that are hidden in model, not owned by the PowerBI Desktop user?

        Regards,
        Ashish

          • expand/collapse to appear at each level of hierarchy, whether expanded or not

            +/- button on row headers should show at each level of a hierarchy, whether we are showing extended levels:
            level 1
            level 2

            Or showing only one sub levels:
            level 2

            or several sub-levels (not possible unfortunately at this moment)
            level 2
            level 3

            at this moment, +/- buttons only show at the very first level of a hierarchy, but don't show when displaying a sub level only.

            • Store DAX formula in SQL Server

              DAX rocks! But, it's uncontrolled.

              Formulas differ across reports, leading to inconsistent results, and a maintenance headache.

              Worse still, users lose confidence in the data when each report shows a different result.

              Wouldn't it be nice if you could define DAX formulas once, and re-use them across reports? Like with SSAS, but without requiring SSAS.

              Here's what we need - Store your DAX formulas in a database alongside your data. Add an EVALUATE function into Power BI, so that it can run the DAX dynamically, reading the formula from a column.

              Users of the data can make their own DAX,…

              • Bug: Undo deleting Visual

                Deleting visual by accident can happen and by undoing the actions it will reappear. However, when trying to delete the selected text in the Fields search pane it happens that the section jumps back to the visual. At that point by pressing Backspace to delete the selected text you actually delete the visual but this time it is NOT possible to undo this action.
                Power BI team please fix this bug as soon as possible beacause you should always be able to undo the last action.

                • Refresh the report in full screen mode on the TV/Web browser automatically.

                  My PowerBI report in the cloud platform is running on the browser in full-screen mode and I would like to have the possibility to schedule the refresh automatic in X minutes for example, nowadays I need to press the refresh button manually.

                  The Microsoft could implement that feature please.

                    • Read rights for Scheduling settings without taking over

                      It would be important to be able to see the scheduled refresh -settings without taking over. I don't want to take over the scheduled refresh settings from the customer for example but I need to see, what credentials have been used and how the refreshes have been scheduled. Now that is not possible.

                      • PBIRS Add buttons for Fit to Width/Page/Actual Size/Percentage to right of status bar

                        In PowerBI Reporting Services, a bar appears along the bottom which lists the pages / tabs. To the right of this bar, could a menu button be added which gives a choice of scaling the page: "Fit to Width", "Fit to Page", and possibly a few other zoom percentage sizes (50, 75, 100, 125, 150).

                        • dock view panes in Report and App Workspace layout

                          We have had a request to be able to dock the 'Show' panes (i.e. Visualizations, Fields, Bookmarks, etc) within the Power Bi Report and App workspaces. Currently, by default they are to the right of the workspace, but our user would like to be able to move these to the bottom or left-hand side. This would operate similarly to how Visual Studio and SQL server allow you to organize your workspace. Thanks!

                            • Power BI Mobile Locale settings

                              The Power BI Mobile app doesn't include the option to change locale settings.

                              All numbers show commas instead of decimals and vice versa.

                              We should be able to choose easily in mobile settings.

                              Please add/fix

                                Could you please freeze option: Select all at the top and make it visible all the time? The problem is, when I filter something, this option is automatically imvisible. But I need to reduce count of rows in slicer and then choose Select all of these rows. Please.

                                • Folders to Organize Connections in Gateway

                                  When the number of connections increases in the gateway, the list gets longer and harder to manage. In my company we have ~40 connections configured and growing quickly.
                                  I'd like to see ways of organizing the connections into folders (could have it based on a business unit , application etc.) .
                                  At the very least, please make the sequence of connection names alphabetic

                                  • Adjust label on stacked column chart to show all amounts

                                    <p>Hello, pls, make a way to adjust the labels in a stacked column chart when it have small amounts. It doesn't looks useful in the default mode, even using the tooltip. In my opinion, users must have to have posibilite to see the whole data or hide it [img] <img src="https://i.imgur.com/Z8bv9ut.png&quot; border="0"> *chart in portuguese</p>

                                      • Allow Access to Usage Metrics Data through REST API

                                        We are looking to access Data captured under Usage Metrics through the REST API.

                                        This would allow developers to develop custom solutions (like automated reports that are sent out) which combine usage metrics data along with metadata from another source like a ERP system (ex. Workday).

                                        • Auto-hide option for visual header

                                          If beforehand you know users will zoom in a lot it would be useful to show that option straight away. In Visual header we have quite some options, but we miss an "Auto-hide" option which is set to On by default. That way we would be able to set it to off and always have the buttons like "Drill Down" present.
