  1. Add another level of Navigation to UI

    Currently we have the option of using pages to navigate between dashboards. it would be great to have another level of navigation such as the Navigation Forms in Access which would then allow you to have pages within tabs. For Example; "Sales by Rep" tab with multiple pages under that tab and/or "Sales by Customer" tab with multiple pages under that tab and/or "Sales by Product etc. Today we have to have separate Power BI files.

  2. Key in Credentials when publishing the dataset

    Hi, There is something which I have noticed. If I publish reports by signing in with my account , it remembers those credentials and will not ask credentials next time. This sounds to be cool. However , it is causing issues for us. We work on number of client projects and many times, clients give us powerBI.com credentials so that we publish to their account only. Now If I am working on multiple client accounts , I am unable to chose account to which I have to publish my reports. Since POwer BI stores the credential information, other clients data…

  3. Allow on-premises publishing to Sequel Server using SSRS from Desktop

    right now, only Pyramid Analytics can give Desktop users this on-premises publishing capability... something in the MS ecosystem using currently existing infrastructure would be preferable

  4. Content pack for justgiving

    It would be really great to be able to unleash the fundraising and donations income data from justgiving.com with a content pack. Currently it has limited reporting and no visualisations but does have an API.

    Justgiving is used in over 160 countries reaching 22 million people to fund raise for 13,000 charities. Being able to analyse and visualise this income stream with PowerBI would be a huge bonus for charities and non-profits and extend the reach of PowerBI to this sector.

  7. schema.ini txt csv xml

    How is it in 2016 we still struggle in Excel with flat txt files, delimited, etc?

    At a MINIMUM - have a way to "guess" and generate a schema.ini file as a DRAFT.

    provide a way you can input things like

    mm/YYYY as text into a date field using Schema.ini

    Provide ON LINE help for constructing/editing a Schema.ini that contains FULL DOCUMENTATION. Here, alas is just a start:

    READ THIS GREAT ARTICLE!!! YES, not all flat files are "ready to go". Most times on large files we just want a slice. We need SQL between those files and the…

  9. Powerbi Charts

    Lets say that I am showing a bar chart of month wise sales and a map alongside showing country wise sales. When I click on a country the bar chart shows the highlighted portion as the values for the selected country, and the non-highlighted portion as the total sale.

    While this is a good feature to have, I also need a functionality by which I see only the values of the highlighted country, and dont see the total values. The ability to see the total value obscures my review of the selected country.

    Can this be done urgently please ?

    Where an existing field contains multiple delimited values (e.g SIP, TLS, X.509) create an unpivoted record for each individual entry.

  17. Backing Up and Editing Online Reports

    Reports that I create in the PowerBI cloud can not be backed up and editing inside of PowerBI desktop. This would be an excellent feature enhancement.

  19. create relationships on "non key" attribute and defining atribute relationship in tables

    When using a star scheme datawarehouse, sometimes you have tables that relate on another by using a non key attributes.
    It would be great if you we can, like in SSAS Multidim Cubes:
    - create these kind of relathionships
    - and define attributes relationships for each table

  20. Protect PC from R code.

    We want to protect our PC from R data source/R visual code.
    R code can write the files on PC, or can access the SQL Server databases.
    Without R code, Power BI pbix files are safe for PC.
    BUT with R code, not save.
