  2. Allow X-axis in BulletChart BySQLBI to display negative numbers

    Currently, the plot is displaying nothing if "Value" is negative.
    This can be an issue when you are comparing metrics such as growth, that can be negative, and you need to see the whole picture.

    Can you please adjust x-axis so that it for negative numbers?

  3. Ability to use data to determine start/end of a graph

    Currently, whenever a data set is bound to a visual (line graph, bar chart, etc.) the visual is limited in scope to the start and end of the data set. It'd be great to be able to set the start/end dates of the graph based on a data point that is not in the original dataset. Ex. Burndown charts for development that only have data for the past, but need the time horizon of the sprint duration.

  5. Time series dim such as fiscal year, months ago, etc. created in Power BI?

    Say there is sales from fiscal year 2016 april thru 2017 april for 12 months.
    What is your recommendations whether this should be created in Power BI by writing DAX or do it in SSAS?

  7. Dashboards shared out of organization should be shown in the "Dashboards"

    It would be grate if my clients, out of org., have the dashboards that I developed for them available in their account and not only by the link send when shared.

  9. Format CamelCase column names as separate words similar to SSRS.

    Please disply CamcelCase column names as separate words, similar to SSRS. For example;

    [CategoryType] => 'Category Type'
    [FullName] => 'Full Name'
    [StartDateTime] => 'Start Date Time'
    [PriorityFlag] => 'Priority Flag'

  10. PowerBI Desktop protocol handler

    Hi,

    My company made the transition to SPAs. Every "page" of our applications is backed by a JSON resource and, therefore, is a potential data source for PowerBI. I think it would be really great if PowerBI Desktop registered itself as a browser protocol handler. This would allow us to create links like

    <a href="powerbi:http://localhost/rest/users">Open in Power BI Desktop</a>

    which, when clicked, would open PowerBI in the "enter data from the web" context.

    I think this capability is well aligned with the self-service BI vision that PorweBI promotes. Also, it seems to be easy to implement it (see …

  12. Load all data for Map Component (e.g ArcGIS)

    When use Power BI map component (include the new ArcGIS), I often have a problem that the component can not load all data into the map. (I'm use latitude and longitude with direct query).
    I want a heat map for more than 500,000 customers.
    I can use leaflet to create the similar map in web, but when switch to ArcGIS by using Power BI, it just load part of data, and cannot show the whole heat map. Which become useless for large data analysis.

  13. Display calculated cluster values on table

    Clustering works fine. However the generated fields are showing up empty on the data view. (They display well on a table report)

  15. Sort Visual by Tool Tips

    It would be nice to be able to sort a visual by a tool tip. For example, the visual might show Sales ($) and there is a tool tip showing # of Transactions, it'd be amazing to be able to sort by # of Transactions as well.

  16. Send your own emails with valid links in them

    Since you send newsletters (Improved navigation and notifications in Power BI Mobile!) where the unsubscribe link takes you to a broken page, I feel you should add yourselves to your block list in SNDS. Then you can go mitigate your own IPs and fix your own email problems before you cause problems for other ESPs when you block 100% legitimate/well-formed messages.

    And I have to close my browser because you have a bad page? Did you get your tech support from AOL or what?

  17. Report Background Image Alignment (Top/Left/Bottom/Right)

    It would be really nice if I could set the report page background image to be positioned at the top of the report. My required report header is 1300x100px but can currently only be placed dead centre of the report.

    I'm having to enlarge this to include a large blank space underneath to give the impression it is placed at the top of the report.

  19. Customise Favorites

    Currently, there is no way to customise the tiles on the favorites page. Ideally, it would be good to be able to change the name and the tile image.

    We also need to be able to re-arrange the order of the tiles as they are stuck in the order in which they were added to the favorites.

  20. Tile Details - Display Last Refresh Time

    I love that you can check the box to "Display Last refresh Time" on dashboard tiles. Unfortunately, the display is not always the same which is confusing for those reading reports. On one dashboard I have three different ways it is appearing (see below). I prefer all of the refresh dates/times are all set up the same, just pick one and stick with it. I prefer date and time (first listed below).

    REFRESHED: 10/11/16 6:43:37PM
    REFRESHED: TUE 6:43:37PM
    REFRESHED: YESTERDAY 6:43:37PM
