  1. Pepperi Sales Software

    Pepperi (http://www.pepperi.com/en/) is an international sales software that is used to manage large B2B sales teams and track their success.

    It would be great to have the data available via Microsoft Power BI.

  2. Twitter Widget Tile

    Allow creation of a tile that integrates the official twitter widget code that can be found at https://twitter.com/settings/widgets (have to be logged in to create one). This would allow a real-time updating feed of tweets about your product to be displayed on your dashboard, bringing the customer's voice straight to you.

  3. Better visibility for menu at left

    Having the ability to adjust the font of the left menu would be very helpful. At present, the gray-on-gray default setting can be difficult to read for a number of users. The option to use a more high-contrast color scheme would be great.

  7. View Report fields as tiles

    Report classes: Value, Axis, Legend, Vertical Multiples, Horizontal Mulitples should be tiles that expand as you add items to them. Having to scroll & display correct class before drag & drop of field is a PITA.

  11. Data Refresh: make the dashboard creation process more automated!

    I have a dashboard on which I show some values and metrics regarding specific customers.

    I have scheduled an automatic data refresh from a blob: once a day we refresh our data.

    If a new customer comes up in our data (from our table in the blob) would be possible to automatically make it showing up also in the dashboard (without any needs to manually pin the new customer value and the relative visualization from the report to the dashboard)?

  12. Better control over large datasets

    Currently, connecting to an online CRM instance with 250k users is completely useless considering it takes 1hour to download contact information. The designer should support smaller datasets while in design mode.

  14. Financial Year Offset month parameter ie: 30Jun

    a parameter that is set for a query once that basically says all date methods and calculations now should work to 30-Jun and not 30 Dec . Date Slicer also should work with this offset.

  16. Refresh PowerPivot Data Model that contain SQL statements

    I often write the sql statements that pull from our Oracle database to populate tables either directly in the power pivot data model, or through power query which then populates the data model. After connecting my data model to Power BI as a dataset refreshing the data doesn't work. Is there a way you can refresh this type of dataset or is that still under review?

  17. Include Pivot Table Show Value As Calculations

    It would be great to have the Excel Show Value As calculations from Pivot Tables available in Power BI. This would provide easy access to a wide range of calculations such as - Percentage calculations, Rankings, Running Totals and Difference From without having to figure out PowerPivot calculations.

  20. Report header and title bar occupies around 20% of real estate

    Title bar and the report header occupies around 20% of the real estate which makes users to always scroll the dashboard. Is there a way to hide this or better merge the title bar with "Microsoft Power BI Preview" and report header?
