  1. Filters functionality in landscape mode for Mobile Power BI

    Right now, by design, we cannot use the filter functionality when we are in landscape mode in the mobile app, in order we can use the report/page filters

    Please add this functionality in a way we can use it as in vertical (portrait) mode

    Thanks

    I tested for iOS or Android and it doesn't work in both... this is by design? Or maybe I'm doing a wrong configuration of the PBIX file?

    Thanks for your comments,

    Mauro

    • 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.

        • Get an APP on Power BI Mobile with no need to use Web service first

          Today the user is required to log in and install an APP previously on Web service and only then the App become available on his Power BI Mobile.
          Directors and high management in general only use a mobile device and it would be very useful if they could do everything from their mobile.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • I set up the phone layout in power desktop, but it didn't work

                  I set up the mobile phone layout in power desktop, but it didn't come into effect after storage. Has anyone encountered similar situations?

                  • hiding report object in desktop layout, hides it also in phone layout

                    If I hide an object in the desktop layout, it automatically gets hidden from the phone layout even though it was already on the grid

                    Please, do not hide them as if it were one. There are some buttons (actions, go to bookmarks) that I want to include in the mobile view that I cannot show on the desktop view but If I hide it from the latter I cannot show it on the mobile.

                    • AR overlay when QR scanning in Android app

                      The Android app currently scans QR codes, but it navigates into the report/tile on the device. The iPhone shows this instead as an AR overlay - bring this functionality to the Android too!

                      • Live report filtering of visible barcode

                        I'd like to see the app use barcodes to do an AR overlay of a filtered report, similar to what happens with the QR codes, but with some improvements.

                        In the mobile app (iphone now, android hopefully coming soon), you can use an AR overlay to replace a QR code you're looking at with a dashboard tile. This is nice, but requires us to set up a dashboard tile for each item we want to track, which isn't feasible for our inventory. You can set up a report to use barcode scanning to apply a filter which is also nice,…

                        • Make Power BI Apps shared with external users available through Power BI Mobile app

                          Currently you cannot open a Power BI app shared with external users in Power BI Mobile. You can open it though if you sign in through the web browser, however the mobile dashboard user experience on the web browser isn't nearly as good as in the mobile app.
                          Is there any authorization reason preventing the app to be shown in the mobile app but allowing the same user account to see it in the browser?

                          • Selected horizontal slicer stays grey in mobile app

                            when you select a value in a horizontal slicer in the mobile app, it stays grey rather than changing to black. if you click on a different visual after selecting it, it goes black. this is a bug.

                            • Hamburger menu disappears when viewing workspace, dashboard and report

                              When using the mobile app, once you select a workspace, dahsboard or report the hamburger menu disappears. This is terrible for navigation because say for example you go to shared with me and open a dashboard, then drill to a report and navigate different pages, you can't get back to shared with me list other than by hitting the back button which navigates back through any pages you've viewed which is horrendous. If the hamburger menu was still visible you could get to it.

                                • 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.

                                      • 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.
