  1. Restate Dashboard Name During Sharing Workflow

    Unless I'm missing it, I would suggest you restate the name of the dashboard that the user is within when they are going to share it out with someone else so they can confirm during this workflow step if they indeed are in the dashboard they really want to share out. I currently do not see this name repeated in this workflow.

    THANKS!

  3. Issue with Custom Time control

    Custom timer- we can change background color to black but the problem is - navigation text color ( black ) can’t be changed and that’s why the moment we change background color to black , navigations disappears.

  4. resource limitations not alligned between O365 and Power BI

    After a conversation with a Microsoft engineer via a service request it seems that a time-out came from O365 and not from Power BI.
    The data refresh time-out for O365 powerpivot workbooks is set to 30 minutes while for Power BI datasets it is 1 hour. Actually reading the data sources into the workbook/datasets only takes 10 minutes, the rest is model processing.
    The 3 issues I encountered with the powerpivot workbook on O365 are:
    - Give more detail on error messages: the Power BI error message didn't give any hint whatsoever that the issue was in O365 and not…

  8. Web Search

    When searching Bing for example, let the user select what they want on their dashboard. For example, I want the actual Seahawks schedule, not the Bing search results for Seahawks schedule.

  11. I would like to connect a folder to PBI - so I don't have to upload each file individually.

    Can I connect to a folder and have all the files in that folder be connected?

  15. Enterprise gateway does not pass current Power BI user to Analysis Services

    We setup a connection to Analysis Services Multidimensional with Enterprise Gateway and it works fine. The problem is that every users, also those not mapped as Cube users can see data.

  16. Add groupings for columns in InfoNav

    InfoNav should support "groupings". For example, for a query like "average weight by age for ages grouped by 10" would show a column 0-10 and the average weight of all data that fits in that range, 11-20, and all the data, ect. This would be really useful in cases like age where there are a lot of independent values.

  20. Hidden content on navigation pane should not be unavailable for linking in the app

    When we hide report/dashboard in navigation pane and have app tile linked to hidden content it is leading to the landing page instead of the content itself.
    Navigation pane should not influence linking on the dashboard itself - we do not want to show all content on the navigation pane, but still want to keep linking funcionality on the App level.

    This is PBI service related bug, on mobile links are working as expected.
