  1. Apply the same filter across multiple pages

    I have a report that requires more than one page in the mobile view. The problem is both pages should reflect the same filters. I do not expect users to select the same filters again and again; the filters should be selected on the first page and apply to all subsequent pages.

    This idea was previously posted under the heading "Make filters that can apply across all pages in a report". However, it will not longer accept votes as it is marked as completed. Is an option available to apply page level filters from the report/dashboard to subsequent pages?

      As we announced in Microsoft Data Insights Summit a few weeks ago – filters are coming to phone reports (watch the demo here – link: https://youtu.be/LJNVO9m8NEM?t=39m57s )
      This new and exciting functionality will allow you to create a report level filter in phone reports – that will be effective on all of your reports pages!

      Some more information on how to optimize your reports for phones may be found here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-desktop-create-phone-report

      Filters on phones reports are expected in the next quarter for power BI apps on iOS, Android and Windows – stay tuned to PowerBI apps upcoming releases.

      We hope will fully meet your needs.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Custom Themes default back when on Mobile dashboard

          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.

          • 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.

              • Push notification alerts

                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.

                  • mobile scroll

                    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.

                    • Enhanced phone capability

                      Power BI would be more useful if I could scroll left/right on phone reports. The width on phone reports is too restrictive.

                      • 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.

                        • Add a Auto refresh setting in the mobile Power BI app

                          Allow each user to set an auto-refresh time interval. Also allow the user to pause the auto-refresh if needed. To date i have not been able to get the reports to refresh automatically. The end users have to manually click the refresh button at the top of the screen. Simply need the app to refresh the report/dashboard based upon the end-user desired frequency in minutes.

                          • Scrolling is not working in the app

                            Unfortunately, scrolling for the tiles (at least for matrix) is not working on iPhone.

                                  • Different Visuals for Mobile View

                                    There are certain visuals that look great in the Desktop view, but look cluttered or are more detailed than necessary in the mobile view and vice versa. For example, a sparkline is not as valuable to me in the Desktop view, but can be more valuable in the mobile view. I would like the ability to create visuals specifically for the mobile view that do not show up in the Desktop view.

                                      • filtering dashboard

                                        It would be great to be able to add filters to the dashboard since now they are only created by anchoring from a report already made and with the filter of that report.
                                        Since the main problem is that it is somewhat confusing to see a dashboard because you can not know the month or year of the graphics
                                        Thank you very much

                                        • Access to maps whilst offline (cache select areas)

                                          The ability to cache maps which relate to data in a specific area would be extremely useful in countries where there is very large areas with no coverage.
                                          Currently data for (some) visualisations can be cached for offline viewing, extending this to enable even basic map representation would be huge.
