  1. Create visual to educate teams

    I was at the Data Insights Summit in Bellevue Washington and have never been more excited about the future for data insights being powered by Microsoft. I would really like to have a dashboard for Microsoft product features. This would include a table with every single product feature. Each feature would be indexed with what it makes possible and what it solves. The matrix would have hierarchical color values for the most popular use. All of this would be used to build a matrix with visualizations. The matrix could have live links to all help and educational sources for the…

  2. Allow PowerBI Pro on Office365 Small Business licenses

    Currently there is the strange approach that we can test PowerBI Pro on Office 365 Small Business licenses, but we are unable to purchase it. That's extremely stupid. We'd be happy to pay for it, if we could.

  3. Improve Quick Insights to work better with Star Schema data warehouses

    Currently, when using a data source with a star schema, Quick Insights will bring back a number of insights about dimension tables that are not helpful (E.g. month correlates to year). It would be beneficial to manually or automatically identify these dimension tables and then not generate insights based upon two or more columns in a single dimension table.

  4. Removing Trailing Zeros

    Remove trailing zeros from decimal data types converted to text. Example usage: Concatenate text with a decimal number (S240306.0125000) should trim to S240306.0125) Using split with delimiter doesn't seem to always work without having to have many split by delimeters setup.

  5. Slicers work Slow as they retrieve data from Power BI. If possible these should be made to work fast.

  7. Remove a tile via 'X' button

    In order to Remove a tile from the dashboard, one has to click on the ... ellipse located on the top right and then click on the 'X' Remove. Since "Remove" is such a commonly used feature, it would be nice to have the Remove 'X' button visible at all times, just like the 'Focus Mode' button which is always visible. This feature would make removing a Tile a single click, instead of the two clicks required currently.

  9. Attach measure to database table

    It would be nice to attach calculated columns and measure to a database table. When you import such a table to a new Power BI report, you would also get the calculated columns and measures you previuosly attached to it.
    It would also be nice if you could manage these columns and measures in one place so that any update would propagate to all Power BI reports using them.

    For example: Let's say you have created a column "dateIsInLast12Months" in your table "dimDate".
    This column is true or false depending on the date being in the last 12 months and…

  10. Single Content Pack List

    The list of content packs a user has published changes based on the selected Group. That is very confusing. Selecting the same option in the settings area should take users to the same Content Pack screen. The screen should sort content packs by Group.

    It is easy to forget where a content pack "lives" if it has been created based on data in a group.

  11. flowfilters

    It would be a nice improvement if Power Bi was supporting "Flowfilters" in the same way they are handled by Dynamics NAV.
    In Dynamics NAV, "Flowfilters" are applied to "Flowfileds" (like "Balance At Date" in the chart of account) and used to "Limit Totals" (eg. G/L Balance limited to 31st Dec. 2015).

  13. Disable "Refresh" option based on "Role" priviledges

    To prevent abuse of resources from certain users clicking repeatedly the refresh button and sending queries to my database.

  14. Should be possible to enter credentials only once for queries that access the same domain/source

    Should be possible to enter credentials only once for queries that access the same domain/source.
    I have one report with multiple queries, all in the cloud and under a domain xx.sharepoint.com. Would be nice if it was possible to enter credentials only once for all queries under one domain

  15. Maps blurry after the 2016-02 Update – Blurred Maps

    I am getting the "Blurry Maps" in the reports and it looks quite bad. The bing maps in the background look quite blurred / low resolution.
    We have some exiting reports and suddenly they are looking pale on both desktop as well as the web portal. Is this some bug and can we please fix it asap.
    Can we please look into it?

  16. Numeric fields in SSAS assumed to be numbers

    Numeric fields in SSAS like Sale ID etc shouldn't be assumed to act like numbers (i.e. be aggregatable)

  17. Expose company datasources for users

    Making it possible as a data specialist to expose datamodels as datasources with all relationships Akin of exposing an Entity Data Model to developers. This will make it a real self service bi solution as the report designers are not developers and does not care where the data comes from as long as the relationships are there.

  20. Reporting Tab not working

    After clicking on a report in the reports menu, the whole Power BI app closes. This is happening with all iPhones I've tried.
