  2. SharePoint List Data Source - Connection Query.

    We have a number of lists with over 100,000 rows. Is it possible to modify the connection string so that only a subset of the data is pulled into the model?

    It could be done with the Power Query connection or the odata - I don't care which. But I need to restrict the rows and columns imported into the model.
    OR, the ability to reference a VIEW on a SharePoint list might even be better/easier.

  3. Power Query data preview from the end of file option

    We think this option will be useful to view how much rows remove from the trailer of the file with the remove last rows functions. Many thanks.

  4. Power Query should provide analysis of data in a column

    Power Query should provide data on what type of data is in a specific column. For instance if you have a data that has a number of some type it should say " The Column contains decimals out to the 10th place or something along those lines to enable the user to make informed decisions about how to format the data.

  8. Azure Login and Datasource Browsing

    Visual Studio allows those with Azure accounts to sign-in and browse their available objects: SQL Azure DBs, Blob Stores, even Websites. It would be great if this existed in the Designer.

    Today, you have to lookup your Azure server name (non-memorable gibberish like 'axh98pt') for each datasource, then Google for the rest of the URL (its databases.windows.net for SQL Azure). Once you've done that you can proceed.

  9. Arrows on a Power Map to represent movement

    Within Power View and Power Map you can - as far as I know - only display information on a certain point (country, city, zip code , etc) However, some of my clients would like to see the movement between different points, for example the movement of goods from The Netherlands to Germany. Wouldn't it be nice if you could plot an arrow on the map to represent the movement?

  13. Re-integrate 3D PowerMap into BI Designer

    There have been some good updates to the new PowerDesigner product, but the inability to generate 3D world maps like in the PowerMap COM Add-in to Excel are missed. Please bring them back in the final product.

    - where come from the data I'm looking at ?

  18. Direct connect, delayed query

    When working with large datasets via Direct Connect, eg via Azure SQLDB, the default choice when selecting a field in the well is not always appropriate. For example you might want to count a high cardinality text field. In the current preview, as you select the field, it tries to go get all the individual values (potentially millions) to display.

    The idea is to have a "delayed calculate/query" selection mechanism where you can prepare fields and filters and then hit go.
