  1. Matrix dynamically set rows

    The current version of the matrix has the rows level always set to the highest level when a hierarchy is specified. It would be great to have the ability for the matrix to dynamically change based on the lowest level of the hierarchy that is specified in slicers or page/report filters. This allow the user to see the filtered selection in the matrix and not have to drilldown manually to get to the specified level.

  3. Version of PowerBI Desktop

    Its simple but in the powerbi web site, where you download Power BI Desktop, should indicate the version you are about to download, and in power bi desktop should also indicate the version. We, the begginers sometimes are lost in that matter.

  5. Visual confirmation that table relationships are active

    It would be great if there were a visual way to tell if the relationships between tables are active. This way, users don't have to double click each relationship line to look for active relationships.

  7. power bi reports for power bi audit logs

    The Power BI audit logs should be available as a data source without having to download it every time for reporting purpose. A content pack will also be great but I prefer user created reports.

  8. Card

    Group multiple cards together to have better visual/KPI groups. Similar like grouping multiple tasks into a single container in SSIS.

  9. Show DAX Option in any chart

    In any chart contextual menu, have a "Show DAX" option that show all of the DAX queries executed behind the scene for that chart. This is most important in some situation when there are many filters set. For SSAS live-connected situations, I actually use the SQL Server Profiler to get it. I consider this a developer feature that should be activated in PBI Desktop Options menu when you need.

  11. When using the modeling ribbon, do not automatically close ribbon after one change

    In order to format a measure, I go to the Modeling ribbon in Power BI Desktop. I make a change, such as choosing "Currency General," and the ribbon collapses. But I want to make another change - no decimals. I have to click on the Modeling ribbon again to make the change. Gets old quick when creating many formatted measures. Seems like it would be simple to fix. Thank you.

  12. Power BI must allow us to add images to a Matrice from Computer and not only from Web.

    BI must allow us to add images to a Matrice from Computer and not only from Web.

    Many time in my company we need this option, but unfortunately is not existing in Power BI

  13. Select all objects from report designer

    Report development time could be saved if "select all" object selector was enabled. Enabling report developer to select all objects and move them around the report rather than selecting one object at a time. Access Report building feature comes to mind.

  18. filter out rows that match headers

    With the combine binaries, it would be nice to have the ability to automatically filter rows that match the headers as these are obviously the headers of subsequent files.

  19. expand power query nested formula to steps

    In the process of writing a solution, queries with many steps are often obtained. It would be very convenient to get a tool that allows you to merge selected linked steps into one by obtaining an embedded formula.
    On the other hand, when you need to debug a code that uses nested formulas, it takes a long time to convert such formulas into separate steps. To do this, it would be very useful to use the tool for reverse decomposing embedded formulas into steps.

  20. Filter Layout - Dropbox Button

    Today the space occupied by a filter is a big issue for a dashboard. Sometimes when you have more than 1 or 2 filters in a page, it takes an importante area, reducing the space for the analysis/graphs.

    We should be able to minimize/maximize the values inside the filter, like a dropbox/cascade button, and have the option to choose the itens we want to filter, hiding the ones inside it.

    That way the space occuppied by the filter would be just 1 line, the title, maximizing the space of a page for graphs and tables.

    Regards,
