  1. Support for report Drillthrough functionality on Power BI Mobile Apps

    The Sept 2017 release of Power BI Desktop supports Drillthrough to other reports using the right mouse click. This functionality should be supported in the mobile apps, otherwise when selecting a Drillthough report in the mobile app there is no selected context.

    • Titles should be visible on mobile platform (without need to tap the visual)

      Using the mobile solution is brilliant, however forcing users to click every single visual to get the title is a huge design flaw that should be fixed asap.

      • SAML based SSO for SSRS 2016 Mobile reporting in Power BI app

        It would be beneficial in many scenarios to be able to configure SAML based SSO (Single Sign On) for SSRS Mobile reports in Power BI app, as there might be cases where the SSRS Mobile reports are hosted on premises that use SAML based SSO.

          • Bookmarking in Mobile App

            Our Power BI users often travel to areas with bad internet connections to visit clients. The bookmarks feature would be the perfect solution for them if it was available in the mobile app and could cache the data and visuals when bookmarked.

            • Ability to render mobile optimized version of reports in custom mobile applications

              It would be great if we could embed the mobile optimized version of the reports that we see in the PowerBI mobile application in a custom mobile application. Currently my company is having to create a separate report that has a mobile layout and then embed that version into a custom mobile application.

              • Mobile Screen Area Height Too Small

                Would like to see an unlimited height in the mobile view so we can fit all of our visualizations. Right now your limited in the number of rows available for adding visualizations.

                • Phone Number Links

                  Just like you can add a mailto:address.com in a list and make it actionable, you should be able to do the same with a phone number, with something like a tel: or callto: prefix. The ability to tap a phone number and make a call would make the phone layout version of a report much more valuable.

                    • Greater customisation for mobile views - Snap-to Grid and Font Size

                      Currently mobile view offers very little in the way of customisation options. I would like to see the following:

                      An option to change the size of the snap-to grid in the mobile view

                      Option to change font sizes for tiles/visualisations in mobile view

                      • Deep linking to SSRS Mobile reports in Power BI app

                        At the moment, you can create a deep link to a Power BI report on Power BI services to be used in other apps. By doing so, it will launch the Power BI app on a mobile device and load the linked report.

                        However, at the moment, you can't use the same approach to load an SSRS Mobile report in the Power BI app.

                        Can a similar capability be added to deep link SSRS Mobile reports too?

                            Alerts/notifications for multiple channels in multiple formats
                            - business users are interested when data is impacted, and would like to be notified in via custom devices they use (iPhones, Surface Pros, iPads)
                            - The alert/notifications service is based on user preference (opt in and out), multiple channel delivery options.

                              • Selection Pane - Different view properties for Desktop/Phone Layout

                                It would be great if the Phone layout did not inherit the "visible" property from the desktop layout.

                                This would allow the designer to make visualisations specific to the phone layout, make this visible = false for the desktop layout but visible = true for the phone layout.

                                Thus allowing for the design of phone specific visualisations.

                                As it stands if I make a visualisation hidden in the desktop layout, while I can drag that visualisation into the Phone layout, it appears as hidden and not visisble.

                                    I built a report using our company's custom theme and it carried to the dashboard; however, when I access the dashboard on mobile, the theme reverts to default.

                                        When viewing a report with an optimized phone layout scrolling a report part should occur via touch swipe. Currently have to press on a very small scroll bar or expand to focus mode.
