  3. Report level filter limits number of displayed items

    When creating a report filter on a field that contains many items, the report filter limits the number of listed items. The only way to filter for values not listed is to create an advanced filter which is very cumbersome. This limitation hits in pretty quickly. I have an Excel file with only 500 rows with id and name column and random names from A to Z. The limit kicks in already at F, i.e the report filter scrollbar is all the way down but only values up until F are listed. All the rest of the value from G…

  8. If you can please quote last modified date on your blogs so that we know how relevent they are.

    I was searching for an article I reached to your blog, but I was not sure how relevant it is to the current version as there was no date there. It will be good if you quote create date, and last modified date to your blog posts

  11. Consolidation of SharePoint Lists

    It would be great to be able to Combine data of multiple SharePoint lists from different sites as one single data source. It would need to state all lists that should be combined - and data should be simply consolidated based on same column-title. This is a Standard requirement actually all my customers had for mainly reporting reasons.

  14. Accurate known issue reporting

    I'm having an issue with PowerBI not working smoothly (web not app). The support site says "no known issues" however, searching my problem gives other with my issue, and others in my org are having the same issue. Therefore the "No known issues" bar at the top of the support page is not accurate. At least provide me an "I disagree" button, because it's very frustrating to be locked out of reports and see "No known issues".

  15. Infographics

    Would be great to tell the performance story through infographics as these are becoming more readily understood by the general public, and can be used to communicate to a variety of audiences in a simple, engaging and accessible way

  16. Open report button on ios is invisible

    Often I don't have an opportunity to open a report on my ipad. When i tap on a chart on dashboard it opens in focus mode and there i can see only "annotate and share" option. After i refresh that dashboard i see both "annotate and share" and "open report" options. Please let these two options be always visible, because it's very frustrating for power bi customers.

  17. Azure Enterprise Billing: The "Cost by location" widget should not put "All Regions" marker in USA, that's just confusing

    Suggest moving the "All Regions" marker in the "Cost by location" widget on the dashboard to a neutral place, such as the Atlantic or perhaps the Arctic for improved visibility

  18. Needs more options of visuals

    It is good that Power BI gives the ability to create your own custom visuals, but I don't think that everyone cares to do this, I would like to see more options in the options of built-in visuals of PowerBI. For example, I would kill to have a Table heat map :)
