  1. Dashboard doesn't display in Chromium running on Raspberry Pi

    Running Chromium on Raspbian to create an LCD kiosk. The dashboard page loads the top navigation menu... but nothing else.

              • Possibility to share dashboard without sharing the underlying report

                Some end-users only need access to the Dashboard functionality. For these users, the underlying reports are not required and should be hidden.

                • Remove visualization box outline when not in edit report mode

                  Remove visualization box outline when not in edit report mode (e.g. Dashboard). When visualization are on the canvas in view mode, hovering over the visualization draws an outline of the visualization. This box has a transparent background and sometimes can cover over visuals when overlapping. Can you please work to remove this from view mode?

                    • Power BI is like buying a Ferarri, but the engineers left out the steering wheel...

                          • Date picker for query date parameter

                            In Power BI we have ability to set some parameters here: Home > Edit queries > Edit parameters.
                            Thats good feature, but when its DATE parameter, it looks and works like simple text input field.
                            As for me, it would be quite better to make there normal calendar date picker.

                            • Allow filtering of True/False Measures

                              If you have a measure that is a True/False type, you cannot filter this measure in the Visual Filters, Page Filters or Report Filters area and must convert it to a number or text. Should be supported directly.

                              • 这个校验请求连接地址合法性的过程是什么样的?

                                使用Rest API嵌入的最后一步操作embed the report in your web page
                                var iframe = document.getElementById('ifrTile');
                                iframe.src = 'https://embedded.powerbi.com/appTokenReportEmbed?reportId=2027efc6-a308-4632-a775-b9a9186f087c';
                                iframe.onload = function() {
                                var msgJson = {
                                action: "loadReport",
                                accessToken: "<?=$apptoken?>",
                                height: 500,
                                width: 722
                                };
                                var msgTxt = JSON.stringify(msgJson);
                                iframe.contentWindow.postMessage(msgTxt, "*");
                                这个地方为什么是iframe先加载url地址,加载完成之后再往窗口发送msgTxt.
                                这个校验请求连接地址合法性的过程是什么样的?

                                • Restrict who can create an Enterprise Gateway

                                  According to documentation, anyone in an organization can create an Enterprise Gateway. I suggest this should be a special permission so departments or individuals can't go around installing gateways without central approval from a Power BI admin.

                                  • put "tool tips" on the icons in header (BI Service)

                                    you can't figure out what icon in the header does what. there are no titles unless screen is max'd (which I never do). so add/put "hover over" tool tips on all the icons.

                                      • Enable Cortana in Windows LTSB

                                        Cortana is not available in Windows 10 LTSB! As I think this is the most likely version of Windows 10 that corporations will deploy, please figure out how to enable Cortana in this version. I was excited at the possibility of one day our CEO could access data just by asking Cortana, but at this time that remains just a dream.

                                        • Prepoulate Chart with info of measure and dimension
