  1. Adding alert for exceeding the 2000 raws limitation

    I suggest to get an alert when the 2,000 raws limitation is being exceeded so the user will know that the data is incomplete and the data source needs to be spread into multiple uploads

  2. Enhance grouping feature

    With October Power BI Desktop update, we have grouping feature to group categories into group, but when grouping, the values will be eliminated in list.
    So my suggestion that could we keep the categories as separate values and have one more value as new group.

  3. This would be a game changer for PowerBi - I think the font size should be adjustable on the x and y axis's for all the charts available.

    I think the font size should be adjustable on the x and y axis's for all the charts available. The charts I've generated i'm able to see adjust the font size for the values but not for the axis values and titles for all the visualizations which makes the entire visual seem distorted.

  5. Power BI (web) doesn't seem to use local time for TODAY() or NOW(). It is OK in Desktop, but not when published.

    Power BI (web) doesn't seem to use local time for TODAY() or NOW(). It is OK in Desktop, but not when published. E.g. in Australia it displays yesterday's date up until 11:00 AM, then it switches to today.

  7. unable to sign in withour work email

    I'm a stay at home a caregiver and I'm updating my skills to get to work. Power BI would be a great addition to my experience and and will look great on my resume. I cannot sign in without a work or school address. Not very helpful for those who are trying to get back to work.

  8. Data Driven Groups and Bins in Power BI

    (adding for a customer)
    Groups are great but to manually create them can be wearisome. Can you add Data Driven Groups and Bins in Power BI.

  10. Click to Call or Email on Phone Directly from Visuals

    For mobile sales dashboards, the ability to click on phone number or email in a table visual to call or email from the app would be crucial.

  11. Seperate sections for primary and secondary within Fields section

    it would be much easier that the primary and secondary sections are mentioned separate when creating a graph. Currently PowerBI doesn't allow this and it auto selects as what should be secondary axis. For example when you're using the below combination:

    Value A > percentage (column, primary)
    Value B > percentage (column, primary)
    Value C > percentage (line, primary)
    Value D > sum (line, secondary)

    This is currently not possible, however would be if you can actually specify it directly from user end within the field section. In addition to this it would be nice to have a one click…

  12. Update Excel files that the source of the data is Power BI on the publish

    The possibility of publishing an excel folder in PBI is incredible, however, when I publish a file that the data source is the PBI itself, the file can not be updated.

    It would be great if Excel files that have Power b2 as a data source could have their data updated when the Power BI data source is updated.

  13. Allow for icons/images for card visualization types

    http://pathwaynewsroom.org/facts-and-stats/

    This page has icons next to "card data" that help quickly identify information about the data. Users revisiting data can more quickly identify data when seeing icons than by reading titles/captions.

  14. Use count of text value for data transformation

    Create a tool in the query editor whereby you can transform text fields based on the count of a particular value. This would be similar to the replace values tool but would replace by count instead of value. One way to use this would be to systemically group underutilized values into an "other" or "miscellaneous" category. - For example, replace all values with a count less than 50 with "Other."

  15. Support connecting to Analysis Services as different user than the currently logged in user in Power BI Desktop

    I would like support with connecting to Analysis Services as different user than the currently logged in user in Power BI Desktop. Currently, it only logs in with the Windows user running Power BI Desktop.

  17. Multiple Map Values with Different Address Formats

    Similar to Bing or Google maps, the Map feature in Power BI does a very good job of locating addresses when they are entered in a "### Street St City State Zip" format, even if the entry is not precisely up-to-standards. There is one problem with the Bing maps though: multiple values are entered for the same address, it will not register all of them unless they are entered in exactly the same way.

    For example, if I have an address entered as 111 S State St Greenville MI this will not include the value together with if I have…

  19. Landscape reports on mobile transition to next page when scrolling on a table

    If a report has more than one page, and the first page of the report contains a table that is wider than the screen then attempting to scroll across on the table causes the report page to change.

    The change page with scroll should only start once the table is at its hard right edge.
