  1. Dividing Timesheet hours and Capacity in project online

    Timesheet actual hours and capacity field were resource and time based. Since we can possible link this data field but we cannot able to divide these to columns to get percentage.

    Please help us in achieving the same.

  2. Chronological sort dates last to earliest in dashboard view [Mobile]

    In the actual mobile dashboards is not allowed to sort which date do I see first in the dashboard view. Most of the graphic are chronological sort by date, but you see only the first couple of months but not the last ones. It would make more sense to be able to see how are the values in the last Month/Year/Quater.

  3. gauge

    Allow the Gauge visualisation to have the option for 'Show items with no data'. I currently have monthly targets for sales staff revenue and would like to show progress towards this, but if the individual being reported on has no sales, the Gauge chart will not allow me to select for only the specific sales person I wish to report on

  4. Sequencing

    Sequence the order of Report and Page Filters. I like to put all of my filters there and keep my desktop for visualizations but there is no way I can see to sort the order of the filtered items. I end up doing kluggy work arounds like beginning with 1_ and 2_ etc.

  5. add o365 video tile to power bi dashboard and be able to watch it on BI services and mobiles

    I would like to add more video tiles to dashboards but only youtube or vimeo videos can be added.
    Added as embedded code [web content works on bi services desktop but not on bi mobile app].
    0365 videos would be a quick win.
    Monthly video packs explaining insights found in dashboard is planned in my organisation.

  6. Percentage Labels in Pie / Donut Chart - Existing idea is falesly labeled as completed

    This idea already has 620 votes and was marked as completed in November 2016. However, it is not actually completed.

    The detail labels Label Style options for a pie chart are "Category, Values (actuals), or both. There is no "% of Whole option".

    One must create a custom measure for each pie chart.

  7. Y axis log scaling for bar and area charts.

    Log scaling was only implemented for Scatter and line charts but users need this for all the other visualizations in PowerBI Designer. Please add this ability to your other visualization types, but specifically bar and area charts (stacked and unstacked)

  9. Share dashboards for read only (out of organization)

    It could be interesting that dashboards could be delivered in read-only, but allows users doing working with their copies.

    We are woking in IT Company that doing dashboards and reports. The goal is sharing these information to our customers.

    These customers would have only read access to dashboards and reports our company have shared. But It could be interesting they can copy these dashboards or reports and modify their copies.

    It's something Power BI allows only whith accounts in the same organization. But I would like to do even the accounts are from different organizations.

    In this way, we could…

  11. Marked Query Changes

    When making changes to a query it's difficult to identify the changes that had been made recently when going back to making even more changes. Each time the query editor is opened, a "Session" should be created that colours or marks the changes made in that session. This means when going back to make further changes it is easy to identify what you've done.

    It would also be useful if an errors could be marked on the action pane. This would therefore make error finding alot easier rather than clicking the banner that currently appears.

  13. Date visualization

    When we input a date with just a month (i.e August, July, etc.. it would be nice to be able to put just the month. For now it forces me to put a full date. otherwise it just sorts it alphabetically... not useful :)

    Thanks !

  14. Embed Dashboard on CRM Account Record

    I would like to build a Power BI Dashboard and then insert it into an iframe on a specific CRM account (or any record).

    I find one of the most noted deficiencies of Dynamics compared to other CRMs is powerful and attractive account level reporting. What I would like to do is to build a PowerBI dashboard regarding complex account statistics (leads, opportunities, etc) and then host it in an iframe on the Account page and in doing so inject the accountid as a filter on the report, such that I can build the report once and then easily deploy…

  15. Improved administration of access rights

    I have recently shared a dashboard to a colleague with the possibility of resharing for him. Afterwards my colleague reshared the dashboard to other employees within our company without the option to reshare. Two comments here:

    - Wouldn't it make sense that I (as the owner of the dashboard) would receive a message as soon as further colleagues are authorized for the report (so I would get the chance to check / intervene?
    - When I want to see the overview of colleagues who are authorized for a dashboard I can get the overview under "Access". It is only visible…

  18. Support for column series in stacked column chart

    The combo chart supports a column series value, but the stacked column chart does not. I want to be able to show one stacked column per X axis value and have each column grouped by the column series value/category.

  19. Esri Map Allow Data Edits in Info Window

    This feature would allow the map creator and shared users to make edits edits to the data behind the map. Specifically I want to make an employee coverage (aka territory) map based on zip codes. I would like managers to be able to edit coverage areas via something like a covered/not covered radio button in the info window. As soon as I display coverage areas on a map users immediately see areas they want to add and delete so my hope is not to have to make my users open a second application to make changes.
