  1. Power Query for Microsoft Access!

    Sometimes I need to transform data utilizing power query and then upload or link from excel into MS access.
    It would be very helpful if we could have this tool in Microsoft Access as well

        • table calculations

          Ability to quickly create calculations based on a table or report that you already have built.

          Example: You have a matrix with Countries on the rows, Month/Year as the columns, and Revenue as your values. In short, a revenue, by country, by month matrix. Another BI product I use allows you to click on the revenue, and calculate a month over month growth based on the previous value in that matrix. You can then use that calculation to format the numbers by color, add a shape to make the large growth months stand out, etc....just a quick way to make…

          • Make Personal Gateway Available for everyone

            Data Refresh is a fundamental and basic requirement for BI. Please make it free rather then imposing Pro Tag. Once the user started to get dependent heavily they will upgrade to Pro Version, you wont have to push.

            Thanks,
            Sami

              • color saturation

                ability to set "hard" numbers in charts like Map for color saturation for different levels, e.g. County-City-State.

                    • filter source

                      Just like in SSRS, you need to be able to have a way to collect parameters and pass them to your source rather than bringing all data back and then filtering with timeslice

                        • Marketing Automation Integration

                          It would be great to leverage PowerBI to identify top/interesting costumers and then using a connector target them using an external marketing automation tool (mailchimp,marketo,adobe,eloqua,etc...) Actually we have every time to export this data manually into a file and then reimport back this data in the marketing tools.

                                    • Custom Refresh for a Particular Table or Source

                                      Hi,
                                      Currently if we hit the refresh button then it goes to all the sources and update all the tables, eventually taking time if we have a big data source. So i was wondering, if it can be customized per source or per table basis. That is user should be able to choose whether they wants to update all the tables or a particular tables, It will save a lot of time during developing phase since a lot of trial and error goes at that phase.

                                      Best Wishes,
                                      Sami

                                      • Bing Streetside in Power BI maps

                                        Having the streetside option (street view in Google) from Bing map in Power BI would be a big seller.
