    2. Slicers should be make a change in all the pages based on the selection (like excel using report connection )

  3. There's no "enable custom visualization warning"

    I have reflect this problem to Microsoft Support Team,
    but they ask me to post the idea here that everyone who has the same problem can track this issue at the same time.

    Let me explain the problem.

    The situation is, if one create one's own report/dashboard with custom visuals,
    the "enable custom visualization warning" will appear in the browser normally.

    However, if one views a report/dashboard including custom visuals via content packs which is published by other people,
    the "enable custom visualization warning" will NOT appear.

    Microsoft said the product group is aware of this feature gap and is…

  4. Limit Shared Dashboard so that the user cannot change page filters

    We can share a dashboard. This is outstanding. However, it would be nice to take away the ability to filter the page if it has already been set. This way we can provide dashboards over protected data and filter out the protected data as needed.

  9. LIMIT REMOVAL

    Request: Could you please remove the limit to a max of 100 rows on multi-row cards? It is such a huge handicap but seems easy enough to change.
    Referring to mobile devices.

  12. Allow QuickInsights on a selected graph

    It would be awesome if you could run QuickInsights on demand on a certain selected (chart / table). Enabling you to save the QuickInsights output in the report so other people can benefit from this too.

  14. Silcer that toggles

    I'd like a slicer that is purely a toggle switch. For example I need to toggle an entire report between sales dollars to Units. This slicer would only allow you to select either sales dollars or Units but not both because adding dollars and units does not make sense.

  16. Photos on Map

    Microsoft has developed the "geophoto" app. It would be great to have the functionality in Power BI, with a range of filters like date taken, etc from the photo's metadata read in from onedrive just like geophoto does it. Additionally, it would be great to display events from databases or excel along with their corresponding coordinates in tooltips on maps (check out awesometables on google sites with their map widget). Keep on going!

  17. Change dataset location

    Currently once a dataset is attached to PBI you can't then amend the location of the pbix file. This would be really helpful, especially now you've added sharepoint as a datasource we would like to change some of our datesource locations

  18. Collaboration for SSRS Mobile Reports like Datazen

    Integrate the Collaboration Feature from Datazen to the Mobile App. The current version of PowerBi supports SSRS Mobile Reports(Datazen) but has removed the feature to add comments.

  20. Line Chart Multiple Splits

    Color by: different color
    Line by: i.e. dotted or dashed
    Example: Color by gender and line by nationality
    Also one should be able to connect a control field (i.e. drop down) with splitting attributes to the graphic. That means the user can choose via dropdown how the line chart should be splitted. Example: User can choose via drop down field between: "gender" , "Age" or "hair Color". The Line chart will be splitted by the chosen attribute.
