  1. Version for Kindle

    I would like to view Power BI on my Kindle, but you can only get apps through the Amazon marketplace unless you hack the system.

    Can you publish this on Amazon?

  3. Add the Ability to View and Repoint Source-to-Report Connections

    Add the Ability to View and Repoint Source-to-Report Connections

    Content packs may use the same source, report sources may change, etc.

    Please add the ability to identify and modify source-to-report connections. This will greatly reduce UI clutter, user confusion, rework and maintenance issues.

  4. Label format for target and max value differ

    The data label format on Gauge control for the actual and target values (e.g. 2.5M) differs from the maximum value (e.g. 25000000). Make them all the same.

  7. Hide columns or tables from a SQL Direct Connect data source

    When using Azure SQL Direct Connect, it would be awesome if some tables or columns could be hidden. Databases have foreign key values that means nothing for a dashboard and just clutters up the fields available.

  8. Make the title or sub-title fields assignable

    For example in multi-row cards having an assignable title looks better on the dashboard.

  13. Design Best Practices Analyzer

    A great design tool is still only as good as the designer. Fortunately the industry has well established design best practices for charts/reports/dashboards (e.g. Stephen Few, Edward Tufte). A Design Best Practices Analyzer could examine a design recommend changes to improve its utility and readability. For example: are colors used to represent categories consistently across charts? Are grid lines used to support value comparison? Is the use of ineffective visualizations (e.g. pie charts) minimized. Are quantitative scales present for appropriate axes? Do scales start at zero for bar charts? etc.

  16. Allow measures in color thresholds and automatically generate a legend with color ranges and values

    The thresholds currently accept only constants. It would be a more powerful feature if one could define them with measures. Also, it would be nice that a legend was automatically generated, showing the range of colors and the corresponding values.

  19. Caption Connected to Charts

    In Tableau you have the ability to add a caption that stays connected to the chart / table. This is important to a lot of our data as sourcing is required in a lot of the contracts we have with our research partners. We also have a lot of needs to note things like rain impacting results. The caption feature should be able to be turned on and off but always be connected to the chart. If you use text boxes in the reports those don't travel with the chart when pinned to a dashboard.

  20. Add ability to view changes done to Query

    When changes are done to a query (in Advanced Editor or in UI), it would be nice to undo some steps. Also would be nice to view the history of all changes and revert some changes
