  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Show latest KPI value when only one trend point selected

    Currently, when using the KPI visualisation, you only see the headline KPI figure if you have at least two values to plot on the trend axis. This means it is blank if e.g. you only have the latest year selected. It would be great to see that value at all times.

  16. Create visual to educate teams

    I was at the Data Insights Summit in Bellevue Washington and have never been more excited about the future for data insights being powered by Microsoft. I would really like to have a dashboard for Microsoft product features. This would include a table with every single product feature. Each feature would be indexed with what it makes possible and what it solves. The matrix would have hierarchical color values for the most popular use. All of this would be used to build a matrix with visualizations. The matrix could have live links to all help and educational sources for the…

  17. Allow PowerBI Pro on Office365 Small Business licenses

    Currently there is the strange approach that we can test PowerBI Pro on Office 365 Small Business licenses, but we are unable to purchase it. That's extremely stupid. We'd be happy to pay for it, if we could.

  18. Improve Quick Insights to work better with Star Schema data warehouses

    Currently, when using a data source with a star schema, Quick Insights will bring back a number of insights about dimension tables that are not helpful (E.g. month correlates to year). It would be beneficial to manually or automatically identify these dimension tables and then not generate insights based upon two or more columns in a single dimension table.

  19. Use Power BI to dashboard Office 365/SharePoint Stats

    Create a dashboard to report on SharePoint/Office 365. Number of users in tenant; number of site collections total; most used site collection/sub site/ you get the idea. Even to have something as simple as Yammer would be nice.

  20. Choose how a visualization reacts to cross filters

    If I have two visualizations in a report I would like to specify how they react to clicks on each other. Specifically I would like to choose between two behaviors: redrawing the chart completely or applying the shade out effect that is now default on most visualizations.
