  2. Connection to MS Access database on OneDrive

    According to several blogs it is not possible to connect to tables stored in a MS Access database located on OneDrive.

    This is very inconvinient as it forces us to have some global shared drives.

  3. Allow direct access to the subfolder of the OndeDrive for Business or Personal OneDrive.

    Through the ability to connect to a Sharepoint Folder, we can connect Power BI to the OneDrive for Business root folder. This is excellent and very important, but insufficient. Most projects require that files be organized in subfolders, to which direct access is not allowed. There are ways to do this, but they are not efficient. I suggest that the solution be enhanced to allow direct access to the subfolders located in the root folder of OneDrive For Business or even Personal OneDrive, just as you can with folders and their subfolders located in Drive C on the desktop…

  4. Combine OneDrive with Azure

    Currently to pin Excel tiles you need OneDrive for business. With Power BI Pro licensing we already pay for storage in Azure but have no need for OneDrive other than hosting files for the Excel style visualization. It would be nice if the storage purchased with the Pro license also applied to OneDrive so we could access Excel style reports without having to add $5 a user for additional storage we'll never use.

  9. Javascript from OneDrive to Desktop BI integration

    When hosting images on OneDrive, ex. product images, in order for the image to display on a shared dashboard the link needs to be made anonymous. This works in the service, however there is not an out of the box way to prevent the OneDrive link from using JavaScript for anonymous access to display images in the desktop application and the desktop application will reject the link to the image. Being able to see images in the desktop application is necessary to be able to scale the dashboard properly before publishing. Would be great to have Power Bi accept…

  10. Enable OneDrive Refresh for Excel files loaded from OneDrive Personal in Power BI Desktop via URL

    If I load an Excel file using the Power BI Service then OneDrive Refresh is enabled, however, if I use the Desktop version to load the Excel file (via URL), then the service does not recognize this as OneDrive to enable OneDrive Refresh. Obviously, the desktop version is preferable for building reports and the service is preferable for OneDrive Refresh availability.
    Can you please provide a way to have the best of both worlds together?

  13. Show filepath for OneDrive refresh datasets

    OneDrive refresh in the Power BI Service is a fantastic method for storing and updating files in an organized fashion. It's become my default storage and update process for Power BI. However sometimes files in the OneDrive get moved around or renamed. While the refresh keeps working despite these changes, it becomes harder to know which .pbix file in OneDrive the dataset in the Power BI Service connects to, especially if I renamed the dataset in the Power BI Service. It would be fantastic to select the dataset in Power BI Service and be able to see the filpath or…

  18. Power BI publish to OneDrive

    We’re looking into the governance around deploying our PBI Desktop reports to Power BI Service and want to adopt the methodology that can be found here:

    http://angryanalytics.com/index.php/2017/05/11/power-bi-content-workflow-with-apps/

    The problem at the moment is the user can’t save directly from PBI Desktop to OneDrive, the user needs to use file explorer to upload to OneDrive. This seems like an unnecessary and untidy step, please can this functionality be developed.

  19. Enable data source OneDrive refresh in Service for published Desktop files

    OneDrive refresh provides the ability to refresh a data source stored in OneDrive once an hour which is a HUGE improvement over the 8 times per day scheduled refresh. However, this requires the user to connect to the data source ONLY through the Power BI Service. This means published Desktop files are off-limits. Currently, a user with data sources stored in OneDrive is limited to the 8 times per day refresh if they intend to use the Desktop software to add calculated columns, measures, or reports.

    Please add the ability to enable hourly OneDrive refresh after publishing a Desktop file…
