  1. Query data from a published Power BI Dataset

    Using Power Query, we should be able to query a published Power BI Dataset, instead of just being able Live Connect, while losing mash-up capability in the process.

    This would enable leveraging existing DAX-Powered semantic layer/business logic on top of our current options of re-usable standardized data provided by Dataflows.

  2. Edit data model in Code View like Visual Studio Data Tools

    When editing a Tabular Model for SSAS/AAS with VSDT, we can choose the code view (JSON). For the initiated, editing through the code view is much faster than with the UI counterpart. Since PBI runs on top of a local Analysis Services instance, it should be possible to edit a data model directly in Code View as well. This would enable porting back from SSAS/AAS models to Power BI at a time when, quite frankly, modeling in Power BI is all around more flexible and resourceful.

  3. Tenant setting to limit who can share any datasets/reports

    We have thousands of users with Pro licenses. We need a way to limit the spread of misinformation and the best way to do that is a tenant setting that will allow us to enable sharing for only certain users

  4. We dont have alternate formatting feature for columns. To differentiate between can we have alternate column feature

    I have "Customer Type" in values field and MTD, QTD, YTD in values

    Can I change another color for "Customer type" so that I should be able to see "Customer Type", "NewCustomer", "ExistingCustomer" in different color.

  5. Disconnect from database after refresh (It is leaving connections open)

    We are experiencing lots of problems trying to refresh power Bi Datasets that query databases, either in Power Bi Desktop or using the On-premises data gateway.

    The problem is that after refreshing a table, the database connection doesn't close.
    Currently, we are full of open connection from Power BI in our databases.
    And in some of our databases we have a limit on the number of connections each user. As a result, reports fail to refresh.

    Is there any way to force the connections to close after the refresh?
    I think is a really nasty BUG

  6. Ability Use Delete Key on Model View Relation Lines

    In the Power BI Desktop it would be very helpful if after selecting a relationship line (between two tables) one could use the delete key (on the keyboard) to remove the line instead of having to right click and select delete.

  7. odata group by

    Querying Odata from Power BI (Version: 2.70.5494.761 64-bit (june 2019.)) does not fold when you do Group by and Sum.

    Example:
    let
    Source = OData.Feed("http://services.odata.org/northwind/northwind.svc/"),
    Order_Details_table = Source{[Name="Order_Details",Signature="table"]}[Data],
    GroupedRows = Table.Group(Order_Details_table, {"OrderID"}, {{"Count", each List.Sum([Quantity]), type number}})
    in
    GroupedRows

    It recives all the rows

  9. Add option to display category labels next to the corresponding ribbon on the horizontal axis.

    Would really improve uptake of PBI visuals into presentations to add an option to display category labels next to the corresponding ribbon on the horizontal axis. We find these charts to be superior for trending analysis and display, but too hard to decode the category key colors to the ribbon categories when viewing (particularly in printed/optical versions where tooltip is not available).

  10. Filter Pane Applied/Show/Hide/Lock Filters Bookmark Interaction

    Currently bookmarks interact with the filter pane being open/closed/visible and what filters are applied (if the Data option is selected). Especially with live connections, it would be helpful to be able to bookmark which filters in the pane are shown/hidden/locked/unlocked.

    For example, we have a model with both order information and invoicing information with separate date dimensions for each. In order to use filters on a summary type page showing either orders or invoices and controlled by bookmarks, I would want to be able to hide the booking filters when on the invoicing bookmark and vice versa so that users…

  18. New Filter Pane: Expand & Collapse sections

    Allow users to Expand & Collapse the sections in the Filter pane. This will make it easy to see if the filter is a visual level, page level or report level filter. It would be even better if we could also add custom sub-sections within these sections to organise and enhance the user experience.

    Ensure The Sections are highlighted (allow custom formatting as with the fields) to indicate if there are any applied filters within the section.

  20. URGENT: Edit and read-only for external users

    We urgently need a bug-fix for the situation we are facing: We need to configure a group (security groups) of external users being able to edit reports in our workspace (thats possible) AND another group of external users for read-only access only. Furthermore all users need RLS to access the data.

    Currently it is not possible to implement read-only access together with RLS. Hameed from Support is involved.

    Please fix the problem or inform about a workaround. :-)
