  1. Add multiple RS servers in the mobile app

    It would be good to be able to add more than one RS server in the mobile app. Usually in organizations there are more than one RS fornt-ends i.e. RS for IT Ops, RS for Finance, etc.

  4. Power Bi concept for Microsoft band

    I have been a huge fan of Power BI and Microsoft Band for a long time. So as a developer I wondered if it is possible to blend experiences and give better visibility for key KPI using MS band.

    I have created a concept, please have a look at it.

  5. Ability to increase page size in any direction

    It would be great if you could add pixels (size) to any side of a page instead of it automatically adding on to the bottom (this is when setting a custom size for your report page). As it is if you make a report and realize you need more space at the top you have to add size at the bottom and try to move everything down.

  8. Custom Agrigation

    I am having one table where having formual based value at Country,state,district and village level. All are created as a hierarchy in tabular model, when I use this model in power bi and drag the value and country, it shows the sum of value (state+district+village) at country level, since all this value is formula based at every level so can not sum it. So how I can show the country level value when we drag country , when I drill , it should show the state and its corresponig value,not the sum of its child value.

  9. Access option under share dashboard menu

    The search option to share the dashboard available under share dashboard - Access menu, does not seem to be working.

    Currently user who created the dashboard can share it by adding email address however for this a separate email is sent to audience. However when user want to share the dashboard link through already drafted email, the viewer has to request for the access to user. If user can provide the access before sharing the dashboard, it would avoid any chaos like the user's unavailability etc.

  10. Export finest grain data to Excel for a visual based on an SSAS Data Source

    Would like to grab lowest-level data for a visual, to export to Excel, from a visual based on an Analysis Services data source. This would be a competitive advantage over Tableau, as Tableau does *not* support this for Analysis Services data sources.

  17. Meta: More date stamps on the Ideas forum

    On this forum, it would be helpful to see date stamps beside each post and comment when viewing an idea list such as this one: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/status/1328500

    Also, it would be helpful to have a "meta" category for ideas on topics other than the Power BI product itself.
