  2. Search using AND or OR operator in Text Filter bar

    The text filter is a useful tool but unfortunately doesn't support Boolean algebra.

    Would be great to be able to search for multiple search items connected by AND or OR. E.g. "waste OR Abfall" in a column containing multiple language data.

  3. Dataflows: Refactor suggestion to remove columns for warning “complex types cannot be loaded”

    As a user, when I import a table from a sql database which has a foreign key to another table, the UI automagically adds additional columns of datatype “table” for the user to easily join to those tables and add other data to the common query.

    In dataflows these are sometimes inconvenient. A capability in the product to one click remove these columns from the query would be useful.

  4. Add personal common formats for every user

    For example If I use a lot one format for money, It would be great that appears in the first row instead of every time I need to change the format I need to look where there are.

  6. Expand/Collapse folders in Field pane

    When searching for an attribute or a measure in the field list all folders/tables are automatically expanded to show the underlying items that match the search criteria. It would however be a significant UX improvement if the expanded folders where collapseable one by one in the field list.

  7. Use Colors to identify Calculations

    When entering calculations they show in gray, the same color than regular data fields, if you could include a different color (I Know they already have different Icons).

  10. When in report the report name in path should go to properties like in SSRS 2018

    When you get sent a link and someone is asking for addition to a subscription you have to click the report, then go to the folder and click to get into the manage page for that report. SSRS 2018 had it so the path report name was a link to the properties and saved a lot of headache.

  12. force locale through PBI Desktip to Service

    Most of my country uses their browser by default settings which is in English. However, most of our local machines have local locale (which is not english). We use dots for 1k seperator and commas for decimals.
    Whenever we publish reports to the service, it's viewed in the browser with commas instead of dots and vice versa.
    I would like to have the option to force the locale settings from Desktop to Service or any other solution at all.

  13. Allow pining tiles from multiple work spaces

    It would be nice to be able to create a dashboard with visuals from reports that are in a different work space. This way you could categorize work spaces to fit your needs while still allowing a way to get an overview of key reports.

  15. Deployment options: checkboxes for report, dataset and dataflow

    I can understand that some users would get confused by this but it would enable clarity for advanced users.

    As a Power BI Developer, I would like an enhancement to the deployment experience. i

    When publishing a pbix file, an advanced option (hidden by default) that could be optionally expanded with check boxes to deploy as
    • report
    • dataset
    • data flow

    Obviously if the structure of the report required the dataset to be deployed and the report was checked then the dataset would be checked and greyed out.

    Currently if I want deploy only the dataset to be…

  16. The last refresh attempt failed because of an internal service error

    I receive an error msg on Power BI Service "The last refresh attempt failed because of an internal service error " when refreshing my data. I talked to MS Support team and they suggested me to delete the old dataset and upload it again. Why it does not work when I republish the dataset. Isn't the republish should have overwritten the old record?
