  3. Microsoft health

    Can you add Microsoft Health as a data source please? I'd love to analyse the data that I capture every day simply by virtue of wearing my Microsoft Band.

  4. Relative Value Plotting

    Allow a user to specify that the different values selected be normalized and all plotted on a relative scale. This would highlight trends between data values that aren't necessarily on the same scale. Like price of houses in an area vs number of homes sold.

  9. Sharing Dashboards with On-Prem SSAS: Add option to make recipients view data with their own credentials

    When sharing a dashboard that connects to an on-prem ssas tabular model/cube, add an option to make users see data according to their own credentials instead of seeing the data as the person who shared the dashboard.

  11. Make the API idempotent

    When using the API to add rows, how can I tell if the rows have been committed (I don't get 200 but it could have reached PowerBI)? If I send them again, it could duplicate the data. Please expose a read, last stored or Primary Key. Thanks

  12. Add a little color to the columns

    Current layout is very 'less is more' which is fine - very .. Jonathan Ive-like (oops - apple). However there is so much more room for subtle information.

    e.g. Which colums are 'changed' to a specific type, which ones are 'Any'. Which column does the currently selected step in the recipe affect.
    What are date columns, number columns. Which columns have errors in them. Etc.

    Don't make it a loud smorgassboard/overflow of information, but there is so much more room than actually used

  16. Power BI must support dweet.io integration

    Currently the real time streaming experience in Power BI is extremely painful and involves a whole complex setup in Azure. In order for Power BI to compete in fast growing real time analytics market, the platform needs to be lightweight and support integration with real time streaming source like dweet.io. Using a combination dweet.io feed from my phone and freeboard.io for dashboard, I was able to setup a complex dashboard simulating all sensor data from phone including location plotted on google maps in under 10 minutes. That is extremely powerful. Please check out freeboard.io and run their example to recreate…
