  1. Linking SharePoint 2013 List to PowerBI Desktop

    Every time I try to load a SharePoint 2013 List into PBI Desktop, I get the error message, "The name 'ID' is already used for a column on table [tablename]. Choose a different name." The ID field is created by SharePoint, and I have no control. This requires me to go through a VERY LONG process to remove the ID field in the Query builder.

    Please advise.

  3. date control / picker is taking too much space. Need skins / options

    The current date picker is occupying too much space in the dashboard. Also it would be great if there are some more skins or some more date range visual controls.

  5. Ability to 'pull' attributes from file system

    When dealing with log files (or any other file group selected through the folders function), the ability to 'pull' attributes from each file and use them in columns (e.g. fill down on file creation date so that merged files have information about when they were created if not in the individual file streams)

  6. Have dashboard pick up any changes made to pinned reports

    It would be great if I could edit a report, save it, and have any dashboards that use that report automatically show those changes. My experience is that I have to edit a report, save it, delete the old report from a dashboard, then pin the report back to the dashboard.

  7. Selectable data on dash board for further visualisation

    if there are 20 columns in my dashboard and like to further analyse only 3 columns, I should be able to select these 3 columns only or exclude other columns for further drill down. This is very essential in scatter and box plots

  9. There's no "enable custom visualization warning"

    I have reflect this problem to Microsoft Support Team,
    but they ask me to post the idea here that everyone who has the same problem can track this issue at the same time.

    Let me explain the problem.

    The situation is, if one create one's own report/dashboard with custom visuals,
    the "enable custom visualization warning" will appear in the browser normally.

    However, if one views a report/dashboard including custom visuals via content packs which is published by other people,
    the "enable custom visualization warning" will NOT appear.

    Microsoft said the product group is aware of this feature gap and is…

  10. Limit Shared Dashboard so that the user cannot change page filters

    We can share a dashboard. This is outstanding. However, it would be nice to take away the ability to filter the page if it has already been set. This way we can provide dashboards over protected data and filter out the protected data as needed.

  14. LIMIT REMOVAL

    Request: Could you please remove the limit to a max of 100 rows on multi-row cards? It is such a huge handicap but seems easy enough to change.
    Referring to mobile devices.

  16. Allow QuickInsights on a selected graph

    It would be awesome if you could run QuickInsights on demand on a certain selected (chart / table). Enabling you to save the QuickInsights output in the report so other people can benefit from this too.

  17. Photos on Map

    Microsoft has developed the "geophoto" app. It would be great to have the functionality in Power BI, with a range of filters like date taken, etc from the photo's metadata read in from onedrive just like geophoto does it. Additionally, it would be great to display events from databases or excel along with their corresponding coordinates in tooltips on maps (check out awesometables on google sites with their map widget). Keep on going!

  18. Collaboration for SSRS Mobile Reports like Datazen

    Integrate the Collaboration Feature from Datazen to the Mobile App. The current version of PowerBi supports SSRS Mobile Reports(Datazen) but has removed the feature to add comments.
