      • Please add support for refreshing data from Sybase ASE databases.

        Since we read a lot of our data from Sybase ASE databases, it would be helpful to add support for refreshing data from such sources.

          • Analysis by date/time: View data by year, month, day, day of week, time of day, etc.

            If I have a date/time field in my data, I should be able to view metrics by year, by month, by day, by day of week, by time of day, and so on. I should be able to drill from month down to day, back up to month, and so on.

            I should also be able to ask for 'last 7 days' or '12 months ago' in my formulas, filters etc.

            I shouldn't need to create a "Date" table and all of these fields in my data. As long as I have a date/time field in my data, I should…

              This is started but has quite a few features associated with it. We have previously released the built-in date hierarchies. With the April update we will release a dot notation for using time intelligence with these date hierarchies. This will be under the preview switch for “Inline hierarchy labels.” Turn that on and you will get access to time intelligence functions for these private date tables. Still missing, but on our immediate backlog that we’re working are Nested hierarchy labels, time filters, fixes around how we show time date, and others.

                • Bank of America

                  Please create a wizard data source connection to Bank of America online. Along with other financial data from Quickbooks, it would be nice to be able to view current account balances and monthly credits/debits.

                      • I can find additional meta data or data dictionary to help me build visualization from a complex SSAS cube

                        Cubes have hundreds of tables and columns. Can I have something that helps me build visualizations easily from a cube (Link to Data Dictionary or data documentation maybe)

                                      There should be a way to use the SSAS Tabular Connector without AD Sync, e.g. by using CustomData on the connection string.

                                        • Get Data dialog too big for screen resolution

                                          Choosing Get Data, then SQL Server or Azure, the Get Data dialog is too big for the screen resolution I'm using on a small laptop, remote desktop into Windows 2012 R2.The buttons at the bottom are barely visible and not readable. There is no maximize button. I cannot get to the bottom of the dialog with the mouse to resize. This is really amateur hour stuff. Flunk UX stuff. There is plenty of real estate to make the dialog smaller and more compact. If a minimum resolution is required, Desktop shouldn't install.
