  1. Toggle for single-click interaction in Mobile view

    Currently on Mobile, a visual must be selected, then another tap will interact with that visual. For many visuals, this is not intuitive and is a poor user experience.

    In mobile view, we are creating mobile-friendly views of these visuals, and the extra taps to prevent mis-clicks are not always necessary.

    Would love to have a toggle switch to enable single-click interaction over the entire tab or report in mobile view.

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • More Accurate Mobile Layout

              Mobile layout with smaller grid squares. This will make easier to ajust views in the screen.

              • power bi mobile report - top floating menu hiding content

                When you initially open a Power BI Report on a mobile phone, you can see the full screen of the report, including any slicers that sit at the top of the report. Once you scroll up or down, you start seeing a floating menu. The top floating menu has a back arrow and the report name and this then makes the top slicers or content unusable. Either the report needs to automatically slide down as the floating menu appears or there needs to be a way to hide or move this floating menu.

                • allow mobile version has its own settings which may differ from desktop

                  the design of mobile and pc can be very different but now we have to compromise considering the visules' settings have to be the same. It would be greate if allow user to specify different setting for mobile version.

                  • 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.

                    • Lock top area in mobile report for easy custom navigation

                      In portret mode, I like to use 'bookmark-images' for intuïtive navigation. If you can freeze them on top or bottom, you have navigation as you would find in most apps. Now you mostly see the navigation options of the PowerBI app itself, which is rather irritating.

                      • 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.

                            • Disable landscape view on mobile / make it the same as portrait but bigger

                              I don't want my customers to see a massive, unoptimized report on their mobile phones when they tilt the screen to the side.

                              Can you create a option to disable unoptimized view and replace it with portrait view but just bigger (helpful if you have table with more than 3 columns, because only 3 columns can squeeze on the tiny screen in portrait mode).

                              There's a lot of annoying things about mobile app to correct but I think this one should be priority.

                              • 1-Click-Button for Power BI App

                                When you click on a button which is, for instance, assigned to a bookmark, the first click only activates button so that you have to click a second time to perform the initial action.

                                This issue only occurs on the mobile app, however, it's a very bad experience for end users.

                                Proposal: A button should perform its action right after the first click!

                                • Add ability to change formating between desktop and mobile layouts.

                                  Allow users to customize formatting of visuals for desktop vs. mobile layout. Desktop fonts are often too large to fit on mobile devices, which renders the mobile layout useless. Just being allowed to change the font of titles, legends, and axis labels will greatly improve usability of the mobile layout function.

                                  • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
