  1. Can we have an option to import multiple Power BI Visuals onto the Power Bi Desktop at one go?

    For Power BI Visuals, we need to import one Visual at a time. However, it will be good to enable multiple Visual import from our Visual gallery (can be stored on the Local HDD or on the Network Drive) at one single click.

  2. Display "Summarization: Do Not Summarize" column totalizer for Table type reports

    In modeling where it is not possible to assign a group by in queries many times duplicate values are presented and the function of eliminating duplicity is not possible, and in the report the value presented for that column is not correct because it is adding its duplicate values and When the Summarize data type is changed to do not summarize the column in the tpo table report does not display the Total, and it is very important that it be displayed

  3. Data Refresh on the top of the page does not refresh dataset

    On cubes the refresh on the top of the page goes all the way through to the data source, but on the connection to a server it does not. I wish Microsoft would change this. This is confusing for users who are using both kinds of data sources.

  5. Limit History in Stream Data Sets

    It would be awesome if there is a possibility to limit the history of stream data sets. It would be also great if you can archive all data above the Limit in a SQL Database or something simular as an option. BTW you should be able to set alerts to the current streamed value to track critical values.

  6. Color Change! Line and Clustered Bar Chart X-axis

    There's no option for X-axis or Y-axis color changes on this type of chart!

    Other charts have this option, and grey is not ideal.

  9. URL Paramerters used in Direct Query Datasources

    I need to push parameters from a URL in a Dataset that used DirectQuery to a Azure DB to filter the data in the source system.

    Szenario: A Product ID from a operational system can filter a Power BI Dashboard to display the performance of a product.

    With this feature we can use Power BI Dashboards in a operational reporting and a good performance on the datasource.

  11. Make Power BI more flexible


    1. Upload all files in a folder with a specific starting name ex: mydocuments/powerBi/Data/accounting*.csv
      so upload ans append all files in that folder named accounting062016.csv + accounting072016.csv + accounting082016.csv etcetera. Whitout needing to manupilate everytime each upload file


    2. See clearily which collumns are in common when appending files.


    3. Insert standard a practical timeline slicer


    4. Insert a box where you can see which are your current filter selections + insert a button "Clear all Filters".


    5. Export a table to excel easy


    6. Insert a pivot table dropdown table where you can move your dimensions from place in your table


    7. Make every dimension field…

  13. Export to excel with details not in Chart

    For data that comes from live connections or complex models, if you have a chart with Sales $ by Category, and choose to export, it only exports those 2 columns. It would be great if Power BI supported the ability to define what columns should be part of the export, but not needed to be shown in the visual. For example, you might want to add date as well but no need to show it in the visual

  14. Need to publish tenant specific service alerts in the Power BI service

    Companies and users of Power BI need a central location for all their power BI information. Today, service notices are posted in the Power BI community site, but not everyone looks there.

    Service notices should be:

    1.  Posted in the notification center in the Power BI service
    
    2. Should include tenant specific notices
    3. Users should be able to sign up to receive an additional email notification.

    Today, Microsoft build some "glue" that partially enables this for Microsoft employees. Power BI should build this into the product so that other companies have the same (better) capabilities.

  16. Last state of menus retained when changing focus

    Would be nice if the roll up menus in the Design area stayed as they were (ie. last state) when changing focus to another object/visualisation. if you're trying to compare settings or quickly flick between two objects you have to keep clicking the down-arrow to re-open the design parameter/category each time you change object focus.

  17. Mouse over format options to see preview changes before committing them

    Would like to be able to roll-over the design options with the mouse to preview formatting changes before committing them.. saves time doing & undoing formatting options when you aren't sure what they are how they're going to appear. Good if not quite sure what you're looking for, or want to quickly assess the options.

  18. The expand the Quick Calc funality

    The Quick calc function should be expanded to, as a minimum, include the same options as in Excel Power Pivot e.g. "% of row total", "% of column" etc. Microsoft have the code already, so adding these function should be a pice of cake :-)

  19. Gracias, creo quen en las segmentaciones los cuadros que aparecen a la izquierda de cada opción no agregan valor, visualmente sólo restan es

    Segmentación de Datos: No creo que los cuadros que aparecen a la izquierda de cada opción agreguen valor, visualmente sólo restan espacio y dan la idea de que no se puede seleccionar directamente sobre el texto, lo cual no es así, deberían ser más parecidos a los slicers de Excel.

  20. enter notes on tiles

    I would like to enter notes/comments or "memos" on Tiles and even on Reports/Dashboards to remind me (or someone else) how its built/whats the purpose with it/some smart way to use or what ever a colleague might need to take over some day.

    Of course most is selfexplanatory, but it could be of use...right?
