  1. Details on when Power BI features are available

    After setting up a data source there is no details available on when it has been indexed for natural language processing or other Power BI features that take a moment to setup.

    • Query Fields <> Report Fields

      I choose a subset of columns in the Query area, but all columns show in the Report area; I am expecting them to be same as in PowerPivot.

      I am so impressed with what you are doing with this - you are going to set the competition on their heels.

                • numeric data can be on a gradient when it is set as color

                  Basically if you had data with a lot of discreet numbers, when you set it to be the color variable, set a gradient of red to green for example of lowest to highest, instead of random discreet colors for each value.

                    I need to Hide this "I" symbol, is it possible ?

                              • Need the ability to configure size limits on the preview page. Large tables sometimes only show a few records.

                                In the PowerBI Designer data preview screen, it would be good to have an option to have more data in the preview window. Currently tables get limited and the records shown are sometimes not helpful in data exploration

                                  Hi James. Thanks for adding your suggestion! Why do you need to be able to see more data in the Query view? It’s designed to be a preview so you can quickly set up the transformations or manipulation you need to do to get your data into the right format. If you’re looking to do analysis on the data, the Report view is the place to do it (there you have filters, sorting etc. that don’t affect the data and are applied to your entire dataset).

                                • Customize mouse-over fields

                                  Let users pick which information is shown when hovering mouse over a certain chart. (i.e. a pie chart shows percentage and its mouse-over shows absolute value)

                                      Need a way to test a Q&A model (in some sort of a dev environment) before releasing (to production environment). This is especially critical in enterprise settings, where any change to the data model will likely have large business impact affecing a large number of people.

                                        When I connect to a new data source and don't really know the structure of the data, I have no idea what questions I can ask. I should get some suggestions or a list of what fields are in the data, etc.
