  1. Integrate SSIS 'Data Mine' tools into Power BI

    I would really like to see Power BI take the same Data Mining abilities shown in SSIS 2013.
    I am thinking about being able to quickly produce linear/expo regression, tree-sketch or forecasting models, based on the Power BI data source directly, and immediately edit them into our dashboards.

  2. When we rename a filter not re-load data again

    When we rename a filter no re-load data again, the filter is done when you create it.

  3. Stable Performance

    Stable performance. Please, please, please make stable performance the main focus. If we have to wait over a minute for data to pivot, or have to close and re-open the tool to get data visualizations to not error out then additional features beyond this are pointless.

  4. Allow user to Change the font size in visualzation and fields panes

    Allow user to Change the font size in visualzation and fields panes.
    In the Options for Power BI Desktop, add controls so a user can set the font size for the text in the Visualization Pane and Fields Pane. Add a separate controls for setting the thumbnail size for the visualization icons in the visualization pane. When using a high resolution monitor, the current fonts are vey small.

  5. Manually Refresh all Datasets at one time instead of one at a time

    It would be nice to have a "Refresh All Datasets" option when you need to manually refresh all your datasets. Instead of one at a time.

  6. Feature to share Report level, Page level

    For now power bi can share dashboard level and can create content pack to share some reports. Will better if power bi can share page level to another users. (i.e User "A" see all pages in the report by coming from some dashboard, so user "B" coming from same dashboard and report with user "A" but user "B" see some page in that report)

  12. Drag select in slicer and default Search icon

    When you have 100 items in a slicer, it would be good to have Drag and select multiple. Search icon is difficult to find for users. would be good if its visible without any clicks.

  14. Microsoft-published custom visuals as default

    Include all Microsoft-published Custom Visuals as part of Power BI desktop and Power BI service. This change will allow users to more easily select different types of visualizations for their reports. This change would also remove some of the poor user experience of seeing the nagging warning "danger! There's a potentially malicious custom visual in this report". If the visual is built by Microsoft it should be able to pass a security muster and thus be safe to run in all circumstances.

  16. Ability to overwrite reports with same name with power bi desktop file, even if the original report was created in powerbi.com

    I can't change the data source in powerbi.com created reports, but I can in power bi desktop. I'd like to simply overwrite those reports with power bi desktop file of the same name (as an option).

  17. Ability to see Power BI an as EffectiveUser in Power BI Desktop from Tabular Model

    When editing a tabular model you have the option to analyze in excel and specify the user you want to be to verify roles are working correctly, or you can specify it in the connection string with EffectiveUser. There doesn't seem to be a way to do that in Power BI Desktop.

  19. I would want to use Power BI as a operational dashboard/testtool

    In warehouse and production logistics we can always optimize the customers situation by making little changes. I use Excel to visualize them as an animation (power pivots and 3d Maps). Current Dashboards just show scores and I want to show losses (where are we loosing money). In Excel we can show in time what happens and where. The problem is always that the customer is not able to use these models themselves because they are to complex and they never have the right excel version. Simple sample: in a warehouse we have a start point and an end point and…
