  1. Tooltips - Make it easier to select the data point you are interested in

    Rather than just simply choosing the data point closest to the x-value of the cursor when displaying a Tooltip please consider making things much more selective:

    1) Take the y-value into account as well
    2) Display the tooltip for several data points when they are too close to select individually with the mouse
    3) Only consider data points for tooltip display in series/ranges that are selected/highlighted.

    Getting the tooltip to display the data point your are interested in is especially problematic when using the Line Chart with multiple series and many data points where the X axis values are similar…

  2. visual type is not yet supported

    There are dozens of nice PBI visualizations available for download from Visuals Gallery. Unfortunately none that we've tested work thru PBI tile/report embedding in an iframe despite that most those visuals are developed by MSFT. MSFT appears to be aware of this but little is done to date to add support for them. How much value all those visuals add if none can be integrated?

  3. Synchronize graph legend and slicer formatting

    Synchronize graph legend and slicer formatting and order so that you can easily relate a multi select slicer to the Legends on the graphs. Additionally, there should be some more options for the slicers "selection controls" so that each entity will be highlighted in the vertical position with the option to show check boxes or not.

  4. follow ideas

    Allow a person to follow a Power BI idea on the forum without giving votes to it. It would let us keep tabs on the updates for ideas we like but don't have enough votes to support,

  5. Provide PowerBI Graph as Image on request (similar to JSON/TXT format ask in request headers)

    Please provide an API where client apps can request if they need entire BI object or a image file (PNG, JPG) of a graph (tile), which can be embedded into the website, UWP apps. Today we need to get entire BI graph with all scripts to render in iframe (its too heavy than just a few KB's image)

  6. color filter

    A way so you can filter TEXT colors based off of a value. I know i can filter map country based on a value, but it would be great if this was possible for cards, so the color from the country would translate to text in a card!

  7. Display tooltip on emedded tiles

    While the Power BI Dashboard Tiles display the tooltips in the portal, same is not displayed when the tile is embedded in an external web app. Please enable display of tooltips in embedded tiles.

  8. Export date columns in the same format as set in the model

    When you do an export data, the fields of type date must maintain the same format as you set in the model. At the moment i need to create a new text column to do that every time.

    Thx,

  13. Support for Multiprovider/Multicube

    The support of hierarchies is a great thing. In SAP there i have data objects like multiprovider/multicubes. i have access to the measures/facts of the multicube but i can not access the dimensions. Is there a way to do it?

  14. Hyperlink Data Category

    Add a "Hyperlink" Category so that PowerBI displays it as a link no matter what protocol or text is in the cell. It does this automatically for "http://" but not for other protocols.

  15. Divide by Zero is incorrect

    Division by zero in formulae for measures or calculated columns displays a result of "Infinity". This is incorrect. Division by zero is undefined or indeterminate.

  17. Show an upload error message when the file is locked

    PBIX files cannot be uploaded to a workspace when they're open on the desktop. However, there is no error message saying so, which causes a great deal of confusion. If possible, it would help to receive a message warning the user to close the local copy and re-try the upload.

  19. When moving visual objects have the boundaries fixed

    When designing the reports, it would be useful if the boundaries clicked together, would make the design process a bit easier.
