  1. Allow Customization of See Records View

    This suggestion seems to have been brought up countless times before since 2016, with hundreds of votes for the same thing on other posts but somehow still hasn't been implemented yet which is crazy to me. PLEASE make it possible to customize which columns are shown in the "See Records" review and MAKE IT STICK once those customizations are done. It is very frustrating to get the columns all set up the way I want and then go back to the report, and then when I go to "See Records" again, the columns have all reset themselves to…

  2. "See Record" Column Setup

    This is in response to: http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Developer/Where-are-the-quot-see-records-quot-columns-setup/td-p/33830/highlight/true

    When using the "See Records" functionality the "Return to the report" should not remove the edited "See Records" visualization. The Columns selected and order selected should be maintained. This ensures that the "See Records" view does not need to be recreated every time the "See Records" functionality is used.

  3. See Records Column Setup

    When entering the "See Records" view, it allows you to decide which columns you view while you are in the "See Records", but after exiting "See Records" it reverts to the original view and removes the edits.

    There should be an option to save the edits made within the "See Records" view so the unnecessary columns can be removed and the important information can be viewed more easily, and can be saved so the report keeps the edits made when saved.

  6. Disable "see records"

    There should be an option to disable "see records" for the graphics that support it. It is a huge issue when it comes to security. I know you can hide certain columns but in reports that should only be high level data, the see records item is really an issue.

  7. Add a Comment to records view

    It would be great if you could add a comment directly to the filtered records viewed when "See Records" is selected.

  8. filter last x records

    I would like an option for filtering that allows me to choose the last “x” number of records. So if every week a new data point is recorded in the data set, once the tables have been refreshed, all of my visualizations would drop off a prior week’s data and add the new week’s data.

  9. Slicer to Omit records from a large data set. (Cant scroll through the records)

    Currently the only way you can use a slicer to omit records is to Set Select All to On. then save the report with this selected so all the values are selected. Then the user can select a record to omit it from the data set.
    This however only works if the record set is fairly small so you can scroll through them. Not when there are thousands of entries. In this case you need to allow the user to input the code to find it THEN select it. Currently you cant do this.

    It would be really useful to…

  10. Enable "See Records" from Matrix and Table

    "See Records" option is available in charts, but not in matrix or table. I would like to be able to see underlying records by selecting a row in a table or a cell in a matrix.

  11. Improve "See Records" option

    See Records is very useful, but at least I noticed that some things are missing:
    - Abililty to use in ALL visuals
    - TURN OFF for some visuals: so when we share the report, everyone can't see the information behind
    - When I ckick in See Records, I should be able to copy the information in an Excel for example (this would be helpfull because I segment people, and I only want to send a mail to those segmented people)

  12. 'See Records' Option Improvement

    Rather than hiding the columns if we can have the ability to individually turn on/off columns that would be displayed in the 'See Records' option that would be useful.

  13. Show Custom Documentation for M Functions

    It would be really useful to have a way to show custom Meta/Documentation records in the display along with the default ones (Name, Description, LongDescription, Examples). For example, it would be nice to display the author and the date of the last update to the function.

  15. Make 'See Records' customisable

    Please make see records customisable so that you can select the fields you want to show. And not just show the text field but also show numeric fields like: Sales, Budgets, etc. and Date Fields.

  16. Allow to save modifications in show record view

    Can you please allow to save our modifications in the '"show record" view .
    We already can modify the elements in this view with a right click on data -> show record.
    But when you leave this view and you come back after, yours modifications aren't saved.

  17. Export records after filtering on report in Power BI (Web)

    How I can export records after filtering in a report or panel?, similar to what would in a PivotTable in Excel where when you double-click generates the records that meet the filter.

  18. Expand a Record or Table within a column (using Power Query):

    Expand Feature –
    Ability to choose ‘how’ to expand a record or a table within a column (in Power Query) such as the following…
    • Show drop down choice to expand into new rows (as it currently does) OR expand back into the cell as a comma separated value (which shows all readable text, not just a record)

    Scenario –
    I have a SharePoint list with 14 records and a field on a given record contains a list of items that are separated by a comma. When the data is imported into Power Query, the data shows…

  19. Enable "See Records" option for all Visuals with ability to choose columns

    "See Records" options is now available only for visual like Treemap. But it is very much needed for visuals like "Matrix"

    Even on Treemaps.... "See Records" option is not showing all columns from datasource. There should be a provision to choose columns and the order, in "See Records" report
