  1. If a Pro feature is being used, highlight which feature it is.

    If a dashboard has a pro feature activated, its difficult to know which feature it is. Most of the time it ends up being that multiple refreshes per day have been configured by accident, but highlighting the pro feature in place would help us know why its pro.

  3. Iphone "reports"

    While it is appreciated the intention, the execution might create more harm than benefit the current and possible future users.

    1) the "report" title takes 1/4 of the screen
    2) scrolling through a slicer is almost impossible
    3) slicers set to multiselect\select all do not work

    Would it be possible to:
    1) open a report from the workspace\group menu
    2) have the tabs as "title" but much smaller (maybe auto hide)
    3) move through tabs with swipe left\righ (using normal "dot" ui)
    4) have slicers fixed on top (swipe left\right to move through different slicers) and reports widgets in the…

    Sharing the Dashboard according to the user. For e.g AMR region data should only be seen by the AMR sales Manager, whereas these datas are restricted for Africa Sales head. Also it would be great if from a single dashboard, upon sharing one pop up should come asking which all tiles in that particular dashboard should be shared.

  5. Create a feature that publishes your result dataset in some tabular format on the HDInsight/Hadoop layer labelled with option re polybase

    Create a feature that publishes your result dataset in some tabular format on the HDInsight/Hadoop layer labelled with option re auto generation of polybase table. then other business users could simply access generated datasets by business given the powerbi desktop sharing and usability is so limited and going down the path of enabling people to link to the power bi files is not helping business rather propagating the issue we are all facing created within excel, make the tool usable and functional and use the platforms for storing results for sharing and other use not the files.

  7. Mejoras

    La opción de ampliar los campos y ver el detalles es muy funcional. El ver los textos largo de forma horizontal no genera experiencia.

  8. Allow link to content pack

    Sharing content packs would be much easier if there is a way to send a link to a content pack, vs. the user having to search through the gallery.

  11. Summary of filters applied as text

    When exporting report to PowerPoint, we use screenshots of the report, but this lacks the context of filters applied. A text box with a clear summary of filters being applied would aid this process. An example would be: "$ Volume vs Period from 12/1/2015 to 12/31/2015, filtered by Market 'Fabrikam', Manufacturer 'Contoso'"

  13. Embed a Yammer Feed

    Much in the same way that you're able to start a conversation around Office documents, why not include the same sort of social interaction for Power BI?

  14. Visuals - Move MORE OPTIONS

    Remove the bar (more options) on the top of the visuals to the left or right sides or overlay on the visuals itself. Would be nice if you give us the access to disable more options from the visuals.

  16. Restrict User Access to certain data sources in 'Get Data'

    Create user role that an administrator could apply restrictions to. For example, limit connections to SSAS Tabular models, while still allowing user to view reports built from SSAS Tabular models.
