      • expand/collapse to appear at each level of hierarchy, whether expanded or not

        +/- button on row headers should show at each level of a hierarchy, whether we are showing extended levels:
        level 1
        level 2

        Or showing only one sub levels:
        level 2

        or several sub-levels (not possible unfortunately at this moment)
        level 2
        level 3

        at this moment, +/- buttons only show at the very first level of a hierarchy, but don't show when displaying a sub level only.

        • Store DAX formula in SQL Server

          DAX rocks! But, it's uncontrolled.

          Formulas differ across reports, leading to inconsistent results, and a maintenance headache.

          Worse still, users lose confidence in the data when each report shows a different result.

          Wouldn't it be nice if you could define DAX formulas once, and re-use them across reports? Like with SSAS, but without requiring SSAS.

          Here's what we need - Store your DAX formulas in a database alongside your data. Add an EVALUATE function into Power BI, so that it can run the DAX dynamically, reading the formula from a column.

          Users of the data can make their own DAX,…

            Use something else for evaluating measures:

            Basically please, please disable "Enter" (Carriage return) for evaluating measures/calculated columns. Either don't fix it, or assign maybe shift+enter to it. This is so annoying as each evaluation take s a long time, and it's difficult to keep this in mind for each time.

            • Custom Connectors should offer the possibility to get authenticated username

              A very usefull feature would be if the m-language would allow to get the username of the currently logged in user in the Power BI service to implement Row Level Security for DirectQuery datasources. A corresponding issue was originally raised at github https://github.com/Microsoft/DataConnectors/issues/182 .

              This request would allow all custom connector authors to see if this can be handled in their source.

              • Tint hidden pages in list of pages

                When you right click on the navigation arrows next to page tabs, you get a list of pages. Unfortunately, hidden pages look just like any other page there.

                Idea: they should have a "hidden" eye icon, just like the page tabs, or at least they should have a darker font color. Also, they must not appear in the list of pages when browsing the report in read mode in Power BI service.

                • Planned Maintenance Task Planner for FM

                  As a Maintenance Planner, I can write SQL Queries to pull PPM Forecasts from my maintenance system easily...

                  But showing them in a Gantt or calendar format, especially for repeat entries where a piece of equipment is maintained multiple times a year is proving to be incredibly difficult in Power BI for someone like me who is a real novice.

                  Would be good to see a wizard or a template that could help build such a planner/Gantt... the maintenance industry is crying out for it! :)

                    • Navigate to a point within the same page and back again

                      There should be a way to navigate from the top of a page to a section lower down, and back again. This way of organizing reports will make for a more consistent experience between desktop and mobile views of the same report.

                              Would be better to scroll through distinct dates in underlying data (else, leave calendar match function available for calendar dates not in underlying data)

                                  • Add more formats that can be recognised as dates

                                    I've encountered cases where my data has dates that are not in one of the formats available in the data type: 'date'.
                                    As an example: yyyymmdd : 20180109 (for 1 September 2018).
                                    It's not hard to imagine a lot more variations.
                                    Although it is possible for change the order of text using DAX or the query editor, that is an extra level of effort, and could disrupt other data connections.

                                    • Bug: Undo deleting Visual

                                      Deleting visual by accident can happen and by undoing the actions it will reappear. However, when trying to delete the selected text in the Fields search pane it happens that the section jumps back to the visual. At that point by pressing Backspace to delete the selected text you actually delete the visual but this time it is NOT possible to undo this action.
                                      Power BI team please fix this bug as soon as possible beacause you should always be able to undo the last action.

                                      • View lake size for dataflows in PRO account

                                        Currently there is no way to grasp the total lake size used inside a Pro account.
                                        Please provide some metrics on lake utilization.

                                        • Hide pages by user group (online)

                                          It would be tremendously useful and flexible if the ability to hide pages according to specific group were implemented.
                                          Now all we can do is hide anything from everyone. In order to get a specific view of a dashboard where not everyone is allowed to see entire pages - there is no possibility to share 1 dashboard and see only what is needed/allowed to a specific user/group.

                                          This is a top priority feature missing in PowerBI, no contest.
