  1. Color category in Relationships module

    If the databases in the Relationships module can be color coded it would help during the build of the data model. Often I work with a number of tables, some which are tentative. Other times it would be nice to color code similar type tables (e.g. reference tables vs. content tables etc.)

  2. Favourite fields table

    We have more than 15 tables & 300 fields in the model. Usually the user create tiles with the same set of a few fields very dispersed among tables. The possibility to create in the model a table with a few recommended fields, and let the possibility to the users to add some fields to that table would be a pain killer.

  4. Remove data type limits in formulas

    Limits in formulas because of datatype

    Hi! I dont know if its only me having this problem but in excel I have never had difficulties creating advanced formulas with different types of data, for example making a sum (value) when I find a specific word (text).

  8. New tool for Power BI webinars

    I've enjoyed the webinars you guys offer but have banished Flash from my machines for obvious reasons. I've missed the last two including yesterday's DAX best practices presentation. The on24 tool, besides being generally underwhelming, requires Flash to watch the webinars live or recorded. Could you guys switch to a web conference tool that doesn't require Flash? Maybe Skype? Similarly, would you consider uploading those webinar recordings to Youtube?

  13. Would it be possible to have virtual scrolling?

    I just do not want to display all aggregated results together, it would be great to have pagination option.

  16. Color slicer

    Allow me to assign a color to represent an item in a slicer. Simple example: I select Mark in my slicer, his counties show up red on the map. If I select Sally, her counties show up blue. If I select both, I get the red and the blue on the map.
