  1. Multiselect option for mobile users

    There are at leat 3 important festures that fires with ctrl+click gesture: on slicers, on a single visual or, the most recent, on multiple visuals. The problem is that on mobile device we can not use ctrl+click gesture.
    I suggest to add a mobile app “multiple select” toggle option that switch between the single and multiple selection navigating a report.

        • Azure AD B2B guest users able to open Power BI Apps in the mobile app.

          It's great that we currently have Azure AD B2B available for Power BI. However it is not possible to give external guest users access to Power BI reports / dashboards in the mobile application.

          This needs to happen before we are able to really use AAD B2B, unfortunately for now we are still stuck creating local AAD users for the external guest users.

          • Optimize iOS app for iPad Pro

            Most of the MS Office apps are fantastic and optimized for the new iPad Pro models, particularly the 11” model with the larger screen. Power BI is not yet, and would be great to make use of the new screen size and capabilities.

            • Menu bar covers report data, can’t hide

              Menu bar covers report page top and can’t hide it. There should be a button to hide menu on the menu instead of just based on scrolling. Please help- I can’t use the filters at the top of my report page.

                • Mobile Editable Visuals

                  There is little option to edit visuals to obtain a WYSIWYG view. If the font is too big, I have to resize the font in the desktop view, which may be undesirable. Also, there is no way to test the mobile view on the desktop, especially if there are similar icons, but representing different links. eg. An indexing arrow.

                  • Sweep from side to show toolbars? I'm staring at a report, they slide in and block it. I'm ready to annotate, can't get them in. Fix it!

                    Sweep in from side, or maybe make it optional to show tools all the time; plenty of us have these ginormous phones now. Or maybe that one big material design button at the bottom right to show tools, I dunno.

                    • Auto adjust visuals on mobile

                      In the desktop mode when creating reports in page mode and then go mobile, all graphics, tables and etc are the same size as the desktop version. this causes for example a large table to be displayed correctly on the mobile. the correct thing would be for us to mount the mobile layout and the graphics, tables and other information if they fit the display screen of the device, preventing the information from being cut off in the view.

                          • Expansive Date Format for Use in Mobile App

                            With display space on Mobile at a premium, we need to be able to show dates in compressed form.

                            With new Drill-down +/- option, space is even more restricted on lower level rows (even with the indent set to 0).

                            With a Hierarchy of Short Month > Date, there is no need to repeat the month in the lower level...

                            - Aug
                            Wed 1
                            Thu 2
                            ...
                            ...
                            Tue 14
                            Wed 15

                            The column in the drill-down needs to be a date and we need to have extra options in the Modelling/Format for use with Date Datatypes.

                            Adding the date…

                            • mobile resize text box

                              Please, allow auto-resize of the text for text boxes when used on Mobile devices. Right now we are forced to use small font size on Desktop version to be able to view it on Mobile devices.

                              This feature would be useful for all visualizations, including KPI

                              Most of your competitors support this basic feature.

                                    • Time slicer navigator

                                      SSRS Mobile reports: Time slicer navigator automatically accept only "day"-level (date type) value.
                                      Working with SSAS as source - gives additional complexity in dataset design, with no option to utilize time dimension already available in SSAS cube.
                                      Not all reports are on "date" level. If you need to have only "last few years" report, to be able use time navigator: still need "Date"-level value in dataset.
                                      Add option in time navigator: 1) to choose which field must be used from dataset for time navigator. 2) allow upper time levels to choose as lowest level (not date-type value, but for yyyy-MM…
