  1. Dataset Refresh History Enhancement

    The refresh history does not show the duration in h, m, s. I can manually calculate the difference by comparing the Start and End dates, but that is a lot of work when I have a long history. I should be able to get this information at a glance to help identify outliers and to understand the average and median values.

  2. On PowerBI create authorization window

    Add authorization window after selection new data sourse from SSAS by users. Now every user can select data source (SSAS Cube), and creating groups is senselessly

  4. A canvas that can be split and have its parts filled with controls

    Dragging the controls provides layout flexibility but different computers displays cause controls to overlay one another in unintended ways. A split canvas could provide scrolls and organize space better.

  5. Destiny Content Pack

    A content pack for Destiny (or other console games) for personal use. Something must be available with sites like Destinytracker.net, Destiny ghost hunter, etc... that track stats. I get that this is for work, and I'm trying to get my company to let me use this, but I have a real life and I would love to analyze my group's stats. I'm making progress on demonstrating Power BI at work, but with a huge company, there is so much bureaucracy... Until that get's resolved, I would like to be able to sign in with a personal account and check out…

  7. Support Pulling Images when using a webpage as a data connection

    I know this is a niche item, but when pulling data from a web-page I'd like to be able to have an option to pull the image within the table I'm trying to grab data from.

  8. Ability to view reports/Dashboard attached to a dataset

  9. heat/filled image - customized

    kind of like the current heat map. But the user uploads an image (jpeg) to the dashboard. then they create invisible shapes (circles or rectangles) as layers on top of the image. Then you can set the properties of the image linking data fields & values to the shapes to create a fully customized heat map. For example, maybe I want to upload an image of the Seahawks Offensive Line and display various stats (eg: passing yards) as heat bubbles on their jerseys or above their heads.

  10. Choose if a click should visually Filter or Compare other report items

    Today, when clicking on a chart item (e.g. a bar in a bar chart), that makes all other charts (in most cases) present a comparison between the clicked item as filter and the unfiltered chart. Sometimes the wanted behaviour is to present all other charts with the data filtered directly, not as a comparison with the unfiltered chart. It would be nice if this behaviour was configurable (either on chart level or on report level).

  11. Custom URL Support also in Reports

    At the moment you provide the possibility to define URLs for tiles in a Dashboard - the same functionality could also be useable in reports as well. It should work like in the dashboard, thus if an URL is specified the visualizations in the report has no function but directs to the specified URL - for web based applications this would provide further analysis within the application

  13. Ability to edit archived content pack

    We recently switched from the PowerBI 60 day trial to a PowerBI pro license. Suddenly we aren't able to edit the content packs we built. I need to delete the old content packs so users don't use outdated figures!

    Hi, and thanks for the feedback! We would really struggle to do this as we expect the Designer to always be ahead of Excel in terms of available functionality. We’re releasing updates to the Designer every month, so you’d not be able to open those in Excel. We can reconsider this in future if there’s lots of support for it!

  16. Export Power BI reports Created in Cloud to designer files

    Provide Ability to export the reports created in the Power BI App to the Power BI designer . This feature will enable the exporting of content from one app to another much more flexible and would really help vendors like us who provide standardized content for a particular business vertical.

  20. Data Source for IBM DB2 for Z/os mainframe

    Using Power Query and Power Bi Designer, I have found that the connection to the IBM DB2 database is set to work for the Distributed version of DB2, and not for the Mainframe version.

    It would be possible to add the DB2 connection for the Mainframe Z/os?
