  1. The option to move multiple tiles at once when setting up the dashboard

    Sometimes i have pinned multiple tiles to a dashboard before i go inot the dahsboard and start rearranging the tiles.
    In this situation in would be nice if i could move more than one tile at a time.

  2. Provide the ability to change the size of the circles plotted on the map based on a specific metric.

    Provide the ability to change the size of the circles plotted on the map based on a specific metric. And even better than that, be able to draw circles to encompass a number of points. E.g. This size circle represents 5 "people" in this location.

  3. Partnering with MICROS point of sales

    MICROS is one of the largest POS systems in the restaurant industry. I was hoping that Power BI could link with MICROS to directly extract the daily information created.

  4. Automatic refresh of OData feeds in Excel files

    When connecting an Excel file, OData feeds cannot be refreshed. It would be great to get this feature added.

  5. Automated and periodically broadcast

    We can schedule on a given period an automated data actualization + export to mailing list, with custom or dynamic data filter depending on the addressee - a "broadcast" feature already present in other BI platform solutions.

  6. В отчётах сделайте автоматическую уборку закладок. И если надо увидеть закладки в отчетах, свайпом снизу вверх их подымать.

    У многих смартфоны с маленьким экраном и площадь отчета не так уж и велика. А закладки в отчетах занимают много места на экране.

  7. Q&A Filters

    Q&A Filters - need a way to limit it to the filters applied to the report. We do reporting for several colleges and we can't use this feature.. since it shows data from all the other colleges.

  10. Display labels in column chart with legend

    When using a columnchart, display data values option does not work if you have a legend added. This works in other chart types.

  12. Allow Query of .pbxi files

    I can create queries to connect with dozens of file types and data sources--but I cannot query my own .pbix models. This seems basic, honestly, and very valuable.

  13. Allow report to be publish for static content only, no license requiered.

    Only a number of users need to work real-time with data. Most of my users do not. Publishing static report should be allow without cost.

  14. Owner of Dashboard

    This idea is similar to a couple of other suggestions. Would like to be able to change the owner of a dashboard (and the associated reports and datasources if needed) since people move around and roles change. Now you would need to recreate the content and re-share.

  15. Support for user-defined R library

    When running SQL 2016 With both R-Services and Microsoft R, I usually download all custom packages to a seprate Library, e.g. c:\rlibs and change the libPath to include this

    > .libPaths()
    [1] "c:/Rlibs"
    [2] "C:/Program Files/Microsoft SQL
    Server/130/R_SERVER/library"

    R data Source and R Visuals only look at the Library under program files when running and will effectively ignore what I've downloaded to c:\rlibs.

    Please add support for custom Library paths to avoid us having to elevate to admin before installing packages into the program files folder.

  16. Webhooks with buttons/forms

    it would be great if you could add buttons or even forms that are displayed in the dashboard. These buttons or forms would then send the data to a defined webhook that can be used to initiate simple internal processes. The idea would be to allow small interaction tasks to be executed from within the dashboard.

    Example use cases:

    - You could have analytics data from your mailchimp and you decide it would be great to send a newsletter (pre-made). By clicking a button send, a web hook is fired that could then be integrated (by the user, not by…

  17. Time Spent on a Data Set in usage Statistics

    Love the New Usage statistics on the admin portal . But it would really help if we could get statistics on amount of time the users are spending on the dashboards and the Data Set . What devices they are using to access the same . That would help us understand the content that the Executives are really more interested in .

  18. selection control defaults

    slicer selection controls default to select all = off and single select = on. The default option should be the opposite

  19. paste visualisations and pages between different instances of the desktop app

    It would be excellent if we could copy and paste visualisations and pages between different instances of the desktop app. Not fussed how this is implemented (additional 'report' tabs across the top o the window?) whatever's allows for a quick release of this feature.
