  1. Data connection change - when trying to get data from SharePoint lists

    Hi,

    We are fetching data via 'Direct Query' option using the Azure Data base, then we discovered that we needed some data from the Sharepoint Online Lists too.

    But when we tried to fetch data from the Lists, the data connection changed from 'Direct Query' to 'Import'. Not sure why this is happening.

    We should be able to fetch data using direct query and not force us to import

  3. Erase Search box in Fields

    When you enter a text in the box for fields search it is very uncomfortable to delete it to type a new one or to clean it.
    It would be very useful that when you typed something appeared an X to the right to clear the box

  5. Pssing filters between reports

    Do we have following options for passing parameters within PowerBI:
    * What options are available to us if we want to pass paramaters between reports?
    * Can we pass between tabs on the same report?
    > * Can we pass between separate & unlinked reports?
    > * Can we have a 'fixed' parameter that is passed (e.g. have a button that always pre-filters another report to be for the current year)?
    * Can we feed parameters to reports we haven't authored?
    * Can others feed parameters to us?
    * Can our reports react to specific browser requests (e.g. if I…

  6. Add dashboard title to white bar above the dashboard

    The dashboard title was moved from the white bar above the dashboard to a breadcrumb-style at the very top of the page. This has left a large white space above the dashboard that is uneditable and unattractive. Please add the title back into this white bar. This is the same white bar that has the "Add tile" and other icons.

  7. Better Slicer Formatting for Ranges (timeline view), Horizontal view, and Dropdown menus

    The timeline view for slicers was a recent addition when using date fields with the out of the box slicer visualization. However, your ability to format it is quite limited. This view should be available to fields other than dates (like a max/min price range for example). In timeline view, it has a location to enter a start and end date manually. I would like the ability to turn these on or off. I would also like the ability to control their display location similar to legend values, or set the start box at the beginning of the range line…

  8. Non-Aggregated Tooltips

    There should be an option to remove aggregation for Tooltips. For instance, on a map showing where our Vendors are, I want to also show their Shop Capacity. Currently, when I add the Shop Capacity field to the Tooltip, it shows an aggregation - Count of Shop Capacity, rather than the actual Shop Capacity.

    Our databases also store explanations of what a certain field means - it would be nice for the tooltip to explain what a user is looking at, rather than a meaningless aggregation.

  11. Make PowerBI simpler: Improve Access to Excel files stored on OneDrive

    The current design in the DeskTop to access Excel files stored on OneDrive for business is flawed: you either
    1) access them "locally" i.e. via Get Data > Excel which generates a source like: Excel.Workbook(File.Contents("C:\Users\User\OneDrive -******.xlsx"** 2) or access them via Get data > Web

    In fact you need both:
    1) Access locally stored files with the Desktop, for speed
    2) Access the same files via their OneDrive URI in the Service so that they don't require a Gateway and data can be refreshed

    So my suggestion would be to: add an option to Get Data > Excel which allows…

  12. Make the delimiter count dynamic on refresh

    When setting data to split by delimiter it fixes the count of delimiters based on the data at that time, this can lead to issues on future refresh

  14. Comments on ArcGIS tutorial page

    Just some feedback on the ArcGIS tutorial page. There is a reference to GIS being "Global Information Services". GIS in this case should be Geographical Information Systems" as in ArcGIS. There are also a number of typos for "ArcGIS" on the page.

  15. Magnifying glass over another graphic

    Is it possible to have a circle or square over another report that magnifies just that section of the graphic that you want to emphasize? It would be cooler than an arrow pointing! :)

  17. "page filter" desktop used

    Highlight the field used in a visual/report/page filter when you click on that filter, just like the fields used in a visual are highlighted when click on that visual. Or some other way to determine 'what are we filtering on here?'

  19. Adding the Map control to the streaming data visualization for a dashboard.

    In the desktop version, I like how I can enter the longitude, latitude and weight on the Map control. It would be great if I could do this in real-time on a Dashboard.
