  1. File Options Button on Home Ribbon

    With all the new options for a specific Power BI file. I would like a button on the Home ribbon that is a quick access to the Current file options.

    Today you can set data load, regional settings, privacy, auto recovery, query reduction and report settings. but in order to access these options you have to click File -> Options and Settings -> Options... This loads the Options window, Then you have to click on each section to change the properties.

    Instead I would like a button on the home ribbon, that has Options, Then all options of the current…

  2. Open and view more Power BI files at the same time and shift between by using ctrl+F6

    It would be very usefull if you in Power BI.com are able to open and view more Power BI files at the same time and you may shift between the files by using ctrl+F6 (like you are able to do in Excel).

  3. DatasourceID on Dataset from Power BI API

    We are able to get workspaces, reports, datasets, gateways and datasources from gateways, but I'm unable to find the relationship between the dataset and the datasource for the power bi metadata model.

    Since a dataset is scheduled using a datasource on the gateway, I would like to be able to link each dataset with the datasource from wich it pulls the data from.

    Thanks.
    Leo.

  4. ON-premise data gateway not so easy to maintain .

    with 4 gateways installed, and more than 150 connections. it has become time consuming and tedious to maintain. Some one knows if we'll have a tool on Cloud side to maintain those connections, do searching to avoid duplicated and errors before to generate a new connection. and also to manage users on existing connections?, Someone has a workaround for that ?

  6. Ability to Map updated Field Names in a Direct or Imported Query

    Let's say you have a sql query that pulls a field named DIV but is changed to DIVISION. In this case BI would fail and states it can't find the field. There should be the ability to Map a field to another field in these case. Dropping the field should also be a choice.

  10. Report Page Tool Tip: Ability to Choose Fields That Get Passed

    Great job with the new custom Report Page Tool Tip feature in the March 2018 release. An improvement I can see is if you can allow the user to choose which slicers get passed to the tool tip. For instance, I have a heat map that shows just the most recent data. I would like my tool tip to display a couple spark charts (plotted over time) for some key metrics. Ideally, I would like to disable the date field to be passed over to our custom tool tip. I do not have "date" as part of the Tooltip fields.

  11. Graph

    1. X Axis in the graph for example a simple histogram is either sorted by name label or by data. We don't have option to show the data as per my data order
    2. I want to format data label and area separately in stack chart in order to hide some information in the graph like we can do it in PowerPoint

  14. Optimisation for Card Tile Tooltip

    For the card visualisation, there is a built-in display units functionality to summarise large numbers.

    This is appreciated but please remove the summary on the tooltip so that users can hover over the visualisation and read the original value in greater granularity.

  15. Paste Image into Report using ctrl + C and then ctrl + v

    I would like the ability to have an image in my clipboard from the snip it tool or using windows + shift + S (one note screen capture) and then click on my report page and paste the image. Paste image would be the same as the ctrl + V command.

    I am trying to quickly add a number of screen shots or images into my report. It is slow to have to click the image button every time, because the image has to be saved to the computer as a file. In Power Point I can screen shot something…

  16. explain the increase or decrease improvement

    allow the user to select a custom range to explain on a line chart in particular. Currently the one point forward and 1 point backward isn't enough information to explain an increase over multiple x axis range points.

  17. apply text filter to entire report

    This is a very useful feature. However, it only applies to one page of a report and not to the entire report.
