  1. Accurate known issue reporting

    I'm having an issue with PowerBI not working smoothly (web not app). The support site says "no known issues" however, searching my problem gives other with my issue, and others in my org are having the same issue. Therefore the "No known issues" bar at the top of the support page is not accurate. At least provide me an "I disagree" button, because it's very frustrating to be locked out of reports and see "No known issues".

  2. Infographics

    Would be great to tell the performance story through infographics as these are becoming more readily understood by the general public, and can be used to communicate to a variety of audiences in a simple, engaging and accessible way

  3. Open report button on ios is invisible

    Often I don't have an opportunity to open a report on my ipad. When i tap on a chart on dashboard it opens in focus mode and there i can see only "annotate and share" option. After i refresh that dashboard i see both "annotate and share" and "open report" options. Please let these two options be always visible, because it's very frustrating for power bi customers.

  4. Azure Enterprise Billing: The "Cost by location" widget should not put "All Regions" marker in USA, that's just confusing

    Suggest moving the "All Regions" marker in the "Cost by location" widget on the dashboard to a neutral place, such as the Atlantic or perhaps the Arctic for improved visibility

  5. Needs more options of visuals

    It is good that Power BI gives the ability to create your own custom visuals, but I don't think that everyone cares to do this, I would like to see more options in the options of built-in visuals of PowerBI. For example, I would kill to have a Table heat map :)

  8. If a Pro feature is being used, highlight which feature it is.

    If a dashboard has a pro feature activated, its difficult to know which feature it is. Most of the time it ends up being that multiple refreshes per day have been configured by accident, but highlighting the pro feature in place would help us know why its pro.

  9. Iphone "reports"

    While it is appreciated the intention, the execution might create more harm than benefit the current and possible future users.

    1) the "report" title takes 1/4 of the screen
    2) scrolling through a slicer is almost impossible
    3) slicers set to multiselect\select all do not work

    Would it be possible to:
    1) open a report from the workspace\group menu
    2) have the tabs as "title" but much smaller (maybe auto hide)
    3) move through tabs with swipe left\righ (using normal "dot" ui)
    4) have slicers fixed on top (swipe left\right to move through different slicers) and reports widgets in the…

    Sharing the Dashboard according to the user. For e.g AMR region data should only be seen by the AMR sales Manager, whereas these datas are restricted for Africa Sales head. Also it would be great if from a single dashboard, upon sharing one pop up should come asking which all tiles in that particular dashboard should be shared.

  11. Create a feature that publishes your result dataset in some tabular format on the HDInsight/Hadoop layer labelled with option re polybase

    Create a feature that publishes your result dataset in some tabular format on the HDInsight/Hadoop layer labelled with option re auto generation of polybase table. then other business users could simply access generated datasets by business given the powerbi desktop sharing and usability is so limited and going down the path of enabling people to link to the power bi files is not helping business rather propagating the issue we are all facing created within excel, make the tool usable and functional and use the platforms for storing results for sharing and other use not the files.

  12. On Click filter for Custom Visualization

    On Click filter for Custom Visualization is not working. I have created the Word cloud and trying to click and word for filtering other charts of the report. But it is not working at all....If you could add this feature it would be really helpful.

  13. Mejoras

    La opción de ampliar los campos y ver el detalles es muy funcional. El ver los textos largo de forma horizontal no genera experiencia.

  14. Allow link to content pack

    Sharing content packs would be much easier if there is a way to send a link to a content pack, vs. the user having to search through the gallery.

  17. Summary of filters applied as text

    When exporting report to PowerPoint, we use screenshots of the report, but this lacks the context of filters applied. A text box with a clear summary of filters being applied would aid this process. An example would be: "$ Volume vs Period from 12/1/2015 to 12/31/2015, filtered by Market 'Fabrikam', Manufacturer 'Contoso'"

  18. Embed a Yammer Feed

    Much in the same way that you're able to start a conversation around Office documents, why not include the same sort of social interaction for Power BI?

  19. Visuals - Move MORE OPTIONS

    Remove the bar (more options) on the top of the visuals to the left or right sides or overlay on the visuals itself. Would be nice if you give us the access to disable more options from the visuals.
