  1. Q&A to support data stored outside PBI (MSSQL)

    Currently, Q&A only supports data that is imported into PBI. It would be very beneficial to implement Q&A for data that is stored outside PBI or stored on customer SQL servers.

  2. Formula Tooltip placement covers formula bar

    When trying to create a new measure or column the tool tip in the formula bar covers the formula you're writing. It is very annoying as you are then unable to see what you have written. Placement of the tool tip needs to be improved.

  3. scrollbar for legends

    Shouldn't it be possible to have a scrollbar for values in the legends. Currently I can't seem to view all of the contents in the legends.

  6. Support for existing hierarchies

    Support for existing hierarchies
    If a cube already has a hierarchy, that hierarchy does not show up in the list of available dimensions. As a workaround, I have to add each level of my hierarchy as a separate "value" entry in my dimension so that it's accessible in PowerBI. Even if the hierarchy cannot be made available as a hierarchy, bring in each level of the hierarchy separately so it's at least available in a flat form.

  7. Multiple identities

    In Sway, we support multiple identities, enabling us to switch between organizations. This feature would be interesting to accommodate scenario's for Users active in multiple organizations.

  10. Distributed Deployment

    After developing a in Power BI Designer, I would like to be able to deploy the model to an SSAS tabular server and the visual to PowerBI, so that I can easily deploy a solution in a Hybrid environment.

  11. Dashboard name and description displays as Uppercase eventhough entered as lowercase

    No matter how the name or description entered in dashboard,it turns out to uppercase.This won't look good if we have to enter a small description along with heading.so there should be flexibility

  17. Have the Slicler visualization allow an enterable filter

    Lets say that there is a large dataset drilled down to the Zip Code level. Allow the slicer to enter a variable field to filter for, just like we can enter a value when filtering in Excel, or using the visualization options within Power BI. Incorporate it right into the report

  18. SSRS – LookUp, MultiLookUp and LookupSet Functions

    These beautiful features bring a lot of satisfaction to report writer and developers to marge values from two datasets. These functions are is playing a very handy role to combine data from two datasets in a single data region which was not possible in earlier versions of Reporting Services.

  19. Integrate data source support for Azure DocumentDB.

    Right now you don't provide that support and it would be really good to get support for DocumentDB as well.

  20. Create a Power BI Viewer tool

    Similar in concept to Adobe Reader, Power BI should have a Power BI Viewer so when a Dashboard is shared, the sharee does not have to go into the tool itself.
