  1. Show an upload error message when the file is locked

    PBIX files cannot be uploaded to a workspace when they're open on the desktop. However, there is no error message saying so, which causes a great deal of confusion. If possible, it would help to receive a message warning the user to close the local copy and re-try the upload.

  2. When moving visual objects have the boundaries fixed

    When designing the reports, it would be useful if the boundaries clicked together, would make the design process a bit easier.

  11. Ability to load content packs from iOS

    I am about to launch a report to a department within my organisation who are not big supports of change or technology in general! I am sure we all know how this can be, if it isn't simple, it's not used. So please, instead of having to go to the web interface to load a content pack, please could this option be available from within the iOS app.

    If I have different tables but they contain similar styled data, I should be able to drag and drop one table into another and have it use the table I'm dropping from parameters such as text style, size, positioning etc...

  16. Create package for CD option for Power BI

    The base files are required along with the .pbix file format, as the .pbix does not let us edit data. This is required when we send the .pbix to someone and they require the base files for editing the files.

  17. lock origin position

    Visualisations are positioned in a box around all elements, with the axes free to adjust as filters change the axis titles (which can vary in length). This movement of axes make it hard to compare two visualisations one above the other. An option to lock the origin (intersection of the axes) would be great.

  18. My Amazing Dashboard/Reports 10,568 Views | 2,548 MAU | Likeicon 560 DislikeIcon 8

    We all have seen YouTube videos and the first thing that everyone looks at is, the number of views the video has and next the number of likes/dislikes. What if we reused the same approach to show views for reports or dashboards and also have a thumbs up/down to indicate if a report is useful or a report is not useful? 

    What’s happening today is there are tons of reports/dashboards and most of them are either not being used or not useful enough. Report/Dashboard being useful to someone is subjective and depends on the needs. At least it gives…
