  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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • add Power BI apps from mobile device

          From the mobile app (iOS and Android) we cannot add published apps to our apps. Users currently have to log into the web power BI service to add an app. Please allow users on mobile to add Power BI apps that have been made available to them.

          • phone view editing capabilities

            1. Please remove the grid restriction in the phone layout.
            2. Add the properties available in general tab of any visual to Phone view also.
            3. Add option to have the phone view length in properties.
            4. Branding capabilities
            5. Back ground Image

            These are good to start with and will keep update for more features.

            • Change size of phone view in reports

              I'd like to (manually) change the size of the phone view in PBI reports. Especially the length of the phone view is too restrictive. When you have many visuals of a report tab, it's very difficult to place them properly on the current phone view.
              Thanks in advance.

              • Power BI Mobile app for Windows 10 should support Report Server

                It's very strange why Power BI Mobile app for Windows doesn't support Power BI Report Server. Android and iOS apps have this feature.
                So now Windows phone and tablet users can't access PBIRS via the app, which is the most convenient way of using the reports.

                Please consider adding this in the nearest future.

                • Use separate background image on mobile view

                  It should be able to use a separate picture or disable background image on mobileview versus desktop view. By now, the background image feature is pretty useless in mobile view. And therefore I can't use it in desktop view.

                    • PowerBI mobile Application authenticate via ADFS and WAP to PowerBI Report Server

                      Hi Guys,
                      We are using ADFS+WAP+PBI Report Server, but its not working for Mobile Application. I can authenticate to Mobile Application, but can not open any report.

                      Thanks,
                      Oleksiy

                      • 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 use URL-Report filter in mobile in the same way as in the PowerBI Service.
                          -In PowerBI Service you can pass filters to another report via an URL using ODATA filters. Allow this also in the app

                          • Remove default selection when sharing annotation

                            When I share annotation from Mobile app for the first time I can choose if I want to share it via Outlook/Slack/WhatsApp/etc. When I want to share next annotation the Mobile app uses selection from the first time as default.

                            So I can't share annotation via Outlook to a single person and then share next annotation via Slack for the team without resetting app settings after first share.

                            Mobile app should ask me every time how/where I want to share annotation. Or at least app should ask if I want to make chosen sharing method default.

                            Sharing annotations is a…

                              Number formatting doesn't come through to alerts making large numbers difficult to read. Can this be developed?

                              • Improved usability of buttons in Power Bi Mobile

                                Desktop Layout (Works fine): A Single click on a button in powerbi takes you to the desired page

                                Mobile Layout (Errors): A single click doesn't work on the mobile layout. You need to select & click it for it to open the linked bookmark. Double clicking redirects it to the option of expanding it in a focus mode.

                                For the ease of use for the user, it would be better to have a single click on the button.

                                • Text wrap in tables, cards, etc.! -- in dashboards and reports.

                                  Word wrap in tables is working great in Power BI Desktop, but when publishing it, I can only view the first line in Power BI Mobile and Power BI web :/

                                  Please update this critical feature all over you Power BI line.

                                      It would be great if we have Portrait view in Power BI App for Ipad and Android tablet. It will be very helpful to navigate the necessary information.

                                        • Image Scan Recognition to Filter Reports on Mobile

                                          It would be really cool to be able to use the scanner on mobile to filter reports based on an image instead of a barcode. For example, a store associate picks up a product, points the scanner at it, and Power BI uses the same technology in Bing image search to recognize the product and filter a report based on product images in the source data.

                                          The second tier of this would be integration with Hololens. Imagine walking into a store and simply looking around to get all the sale and inventory information you need.
