  2. Provide a standalone Onedrive for Business License

    Many larger organization have their own Exchange &/orSharePoint servers and aren't interested in O365 cabilities like that. Power BI groups however requires at least the Business Essential O365 license so you can get a group Power BI onedrive and Excel Online. Microsoft at some point offered this, why did it go away?

  4. Adjust reports based on selections in other reports

    If I have a tree map and a bar chart, I'd like to make the bar chart adjust to selections in the tree map. So if I chose North America for example, the bar chart should not show UK bar even dimmed out. It should essentially apply the filter on the visual side for that chart.

  5. Disable visualization types based on selected fields

    Disabling some visualizations based on selected fields will make it obvious - and avoid confusion - for the users that a particular type can't be used for the selected data. For example, if I select month and sales, map control can be disabled.

  11. One Drive for Business - Import or Connect

    It looks like the "flavor text" on the one drive for business "Choose how to connect to your Excel Workbook" screen is a bit off - the descriptions of each function are reversed...

  16. Governance - Provide the ability to access a glossary explaining what a report means

    Whilst it is great to provide nice visuals to end users, if they do not know what they are looking at, questions keep coming. The ability to embed the business definition within a report and access easily would be useful

  17. Ability to create Multi-Tier Dashboard/reports

    It would be great if we could have multi-layered dashboards or atleast an ability to click-down(as seen in dashboard) on report pages, which could browse to another view page.

  18. hbase

    Support HDInsight HBase as a data source. I want to do data exploration on my data and PowerBI looks like a cool tool for it, but there appears to not be a connector.
