  1. Resize Timeline Slicer

    Create a property to allow the Timeline Slicer visual resize based upon the data. For example, a Day-level date needs more room on the screen than Month-level (or Year-level).

  2. date control / picker is taking too much space. Need skins / options

    The current date picker is occupying too much space in the dashboard. Also it would be great if there are some more skins or some more date range visual controls.

  4. Personal gateway refresh success notification

    The personal gateway refresh only notifies when the job fails. Would like a notification when the job succeeds. Have seen the auto refresh get silently disabled (not sure how) and there is no notification that the job isn't running.

  7. Ability to 'pull' attributes from file system

    When dealing with log files (or any other file group selected through the folders function), the ability to 'pull' attributes from each file and use them in columns (e.g. fill down on file creation date so that merged files have information about when they were created if not in the individual file streams)

  8. lock a selection on a visual to use it like a filter

    Currently on a report page when one selects something in a visual it filters all the other visual. This is cool. But the moment you click on a different visual to select something within that, it unselects what was selected in the first visual.

    I'd like it have a way to lock the select in a visual so even when clicking on another visual, the first selection stays allowing me to use it like a filter to drill down within a report.

    the only way I can make this work now is to add a filter next to every visual.…

  9. In Power Query, provide method to duplicate t-SQL DateDiff functionality

    There is no clean, 100% correct way to derive Duration in Months or Quarters or Years in PowerQuery. We need one that respects 28/29/30/31-day months & leap years, similar to t-SQL DateDiff functionality

  12. Have dashboard pick up any changes made to pinned reports

    It would be great if I could edit a report, save it, and have any dashboards that use that report automatically show those changes. My experience is that I have to edit a report, save it, delete the old report from a dashboard, then pin the report back to the dashboard.

  13. Selectable data on dash board for further visualisation

    if there are 20 columns in my dashboard and like to further analyse only 3 columns, I should be able to select these 3 columns only or exclude other columns for further drill down. This is very essential in scatter and box plots

  16. 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…

  17. 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.
