  1. Refresh reports and not only tiles on a 'live' dashboard

    We are very limited with only letting tiles update on a 'real-time' dashboard. For simple counts or graphs it works but very often I am not able to create the dashboard I want.

    Without live updates for reports the 'realtime' powerbi is ok for demo's but not for 90% of the actual production environments.

  2. Bug? while exporting data from Power BI to excel

    There is a bug in the July 2016 Power BI update that doesn't let me export underlying data from any visual to excel. Please let me know if this can be rectified,as it stops me from doing any analysis on the data!

  5. Content Pack update without losing personalized pages

    As an Admin I want to update the "template" content packs that I expose for users to have as a baseline for them to consume + allow users to create additional personalized pages in reports that came from the content pack. When I update the content pack as the admin, I don't want people to lose their personalized visuals only to get receive my latest updates.

  8. Azure upload of report

    Uploading a report to Azure is really painful task. There is no direct upload button and we have to use their .net application to upload the report file. Cant this be automated?

  9. Enable drill down into the grid. Same way of SRS or Excel

    with the drill down enable in the views, pages or dashboards will be easier to analyze data. Also will help to keep the reports compact and expand or collapse interactively.

  10. Cortana Predefined Questions

    Make predefined questions in PowerBI via the Report Dashboard (or other method).

    If a user types "Who is on holiday today" in Windows 10, currently, it wouldn't give the correct info. It would give random data from the dataset. (this is data from MySQL via our Holiday System.

    If I had made this question in PowerBI and give it the correct output - that would sort any issue for end users.

    In it's current state, I cannot see how people use it...

  12. Google Analytics Content Pack Enhancement

    The Google Analytics Content Pack is WEAK, it needs to support:
    Scheduled reports - this is A MUST
    Google Segment Data
    Google Real Time

    Without this many Marketers will walk away from PowerBI and use Google, which after a 1st look is a much weaker product.

  13. Allow slicer to work across multiple tables

    Currently if you have two unrelated tables with similar columns, a slicer will only show the values of and allow filtering of one of the tables. This means that a user has to provide duplicate slicers, one for each table, where they can select the same values.

  14. Make using data sources easier.

    Make using and keeping datasets in sync with the source easier because reports that are out of date are useless.

    Example Let's you have table with two columns A and B. You want to create a new column C based on A and B (eg. C= DIVIDE(A,B)). The result of C should change based on the current values of A and B

  16. Quick Insights - Expanded Integration with Desktop

    Currently results from Quick Insights seem limited to pinning individual tiles to a dashboard in the Service. It would be more useful to expand on this great feature to be able to 1) select ALL the results and pin them en masse 2) ability to pin or import Quick Insight results to the Desktop authoring tool to be able to further customize the results.

  17. Suggestion for Power BI Services Content Pack

    We have a very popular local accounting software called SQL accounting software. I suggest to add into the content pack library as there are many SMEs using this software for financial reporting.

  18. allow me to set target value

    A lot of visuals allow you to set a target value, but this target must be a field in your data set. Let me manually enter a target value to show on my visualization

  19. Support archive .pbx

    It would be a very useful mobile applications support pbx files generated by the powerbi desktop. With this it would be possible to view reports quickly and efficiently.
