  2. Row Level Security in Data Flows

    It would be helpful if Row Level Security could be defined on entities within a Data Flow, so that a single data flow could be used as a repository for different users (with different access rights) to get data.

  3. Allow for selecting preexisting Workspaces for different stages of the deployment pipeline.

    Our Power BI environment already has existing DEV, QA, and PROD Workspaces for which we'd like to integrate with the new deployment pipelines feature in preview.

    Currently the deployment pipelines only allow for you to select 1 preexisting Workspace for which 2 new subsequent Workspaces are created for the other stages. We would like to be able to select all 3 of the Workspaces that represent each stage of the deployment.

  5. Toggle Counts on/off in Filter Pane

    The new Filter Pane experience is really nice. However, the count numbers next to the selection boxes in the Basic drop downs can be confusing to users - they can have no relevance to what is showing on the page. Please add functionality to where these counts be toggled off!

  7. Add support for MS Stream to video tile

    Our customers want to embed videos on their dashboards, but as some of the clips are confidential they can't upload them to the only two platforms supported by the video tile - YouTube and Vimeo. MS Stream is our company-wide video portal, but the video tile doesn't support that platform yet. Embedding a video hosted on MS Stream as a web page prevents mobile PowerBI users from playing the video directly in the dashboard.

    Please add support for MS Stream to the video tile!

  8. Pin visuals from reports across multiple Workspaces in a single Dashboard

    It would be great if we could create a single dashboard (say, for the CEO), that contains visuals from reports across multiple workspaces. Currently, you can only pin visuals to a dashboard that is located within the current Workspace,

  11. Power BI relative slicer

    We can apply relative visual-level filters to slicers to reduce the list of values that are displayed in the slicer. When we do this it only affects the values that are shown in the slicer, not the filter that the slicer applies to other visuals when we make a selection.
    Once we change the selected range in the slicer we'll see the other visuals update. It would be good to have an opportunity to apply the selected range in the relative visual-level filter to visuals through the slicer immediately before first selecting in the slicer.

  13. Please include the option of Exporting Power BI reports to Excel which will include all the items present in the report

    Please upgrade the feature of Exporting Power BI reports to Excel which will include all the items present in the report.

    Currently Power BI reports exports only the individual visualization(Table/Matrix) by clicking on "..." options but instead we want to export the whole report at once.

    Just like how the SSRS reports exports into excel by keeping the logos, headers, formatting and other items when exported to excel.

    Requesting Microsoft Power BI team to include this functionality in Power BI as this is a life saver and absolutely necessary for our Organization.

    Thank you

  14. Allow for rectangular imageUrl sizes in matrix and table visuals

    Currently when you use a column or measure with a category of imageUrl that has an svg image Power BI ignores the aspect ratio defined in the view box for the image and draws the image in an arbitrary square. It would be great if imageUrl would allow for rectangular images. In the case of svg this could be read from the viewbox attribute.

    This would allow for the creation of dynamic databars and sparklines and other creative visualizations without having to write a full blown custom visual.

  15. Navigation between Reports

    In order to navigate between different reports within the power BI service, we can use the buttons directed to an URL, it would be interesting to be able to choose that the url does not open in a new window as long as the address is a report from the same power BI work environment or, that you could choose instead of the url, directly a specific report from PowerBi. In this way you can create interactively the navigation between different reports directly from the reports themselves.

  16. Set different credentials in one connection string for cloud data source connection

    I understand this is limitation of the cloud data sources that when connecting to the cloud data source, it is not possible to have multiple credentials for a single connection string.

    But I would like to be able to register multiple credentials.

    // example


    1. Create schema 01, schema 02 in Azure SQL Database 'Database 1', set the users that can be referenced respectively, and separate the data that can be referenced by this schema.


    2. Create reports 01 and 02 connected to Azure SQL Database 'Database A' in Power BI Desktop using each schema and publish them to the Power BI…

  17. Share personal bookmark with colleagues

    Personal bookmarks cannot be shared. To facilitate collaboration, we need to be able to share a personal bookmark with others in the organization. This way, others can see exactly what I need to share quickly.

  18. Replace Dataflow M Code (Keep Dataflow ID)

    Ability to fully replace entire Dataflow M code (overwrite) without creating a new Dataflow, and without having to go into each entity/query one by one. This could be done via import of .json, IF import does NOT create new Dataflow (with new Dataflow ID, which it currently does). Basically import and replace type of functionality. It would enable continued/consistent Dataflow ID and links to Datasets to remain intact.

  20. Powerbi SSAS Table Sequencing - no option of model sort

    When we develop a SSAS tabular model in Visual studio, there is option to sort the table\column by model sort. .
    Powerbi ignores the table sequencing and always sorts it alphabetically .

    Feature Suggestion - Powerbi should sequence the table\columns as it is (model sort) and in addition provide option to switch between alphabetical vs model sort
