  1. More control in filter pane - end users able to adjust filters but unable to remove them

    When setting up a report we can now choose which filters will be displayed/hidden/locked on the filter pane. Excellent!!

    However, it is still possible to remove the filter by the end user by hitting "x". By clicking reset to default all filters will reappear. However not every user will get this directly or they can be removed accidentally.

    It would be a great feature if there was an option where we can select whether the filters displayed on the filter pane should be removable or not by end users.

  2. desktop Edit query search for fields

    When you import tables that are super wide and you only need a few fields and you want to remove all others, it would be great if you could search for the fieldname to quickly access it.

  5. Read rights for Scheduling settings without taking over

    It would be important to be able to see the scheduled refresh -settings without taking over. I don't want to take over the scheduled refresh settings from the customer for example but I need to see, what credentials have been used and how the refreshes have been scheduled. Now that is not possible.

  6. PBIRS Add buttons for Fit to Width/Page/Actual Size/Percentage to right of status bar

    In PowerBI Reporting Services, a bar appears along the bottom which lists the pages / tabs. To the right of this bar, could a menu button be added which gives a choice of scaling the page: "Fit to Width", "Fit to Page", and possibly a few other zoom percentage sizes (50, 75, 100, 125, 150).

  7. dock view panes in Report and App Workspace layout

    We have had a request to be able to dock the 'Show' panes (i.e. Visualizations, Fields, Bookmarks, etc) within the Power Bi Report and App workspaces. Currently, by default they are to the right of the workspace, but our user would like to be able to move these to the bottom or left-hand side. This would operate similarly to how Visual Studio and SQL server allow you to organize your workspace. Thanks!

  9. Adjust label on stacked column chart to show all amounts

    <p>Hello, pls, make a way to adjust the labels in a stacked column chart when it have small amounts. It doesn't looks useful in the default mode, even using the tooltip. In my opinion, users must have to have posibilite to see the whole data or hide it [img] <img src="https://i.imgur.com/Z8bv9ut.png&quot; border="0"> *chart in portuguese</p>

  11. Allow admin to disable Direct Query mode on Gateway

    We configured an enterprise gateway to allow analysts to do schedule refreshes of their PBI reports. However, they've discovered direct query mode and so now they're hammering our database with a ton of direct queries that seem to be being refreshed constantly.

    I'd like to see a way to configure a gateway to only accept reports published in import mode

  12. Search using AND or OR operator in Text Filter bar

    The text filter is a useful tool but unfortunately doesn't support Boolean algebra.

    Would be great to be able to search for multiple search items connected by AND or OR. E.g. "waste OR Abfall" in a column containing multiple language data.

  13. Use Colors to identify Calculations

    When entering calculations they show in gray, the same color than regular data fields, if you could include a different color (I Know they already have different Icons).

  14. When in report the report name in path should go to properties like in SSRS 2018

    When you get sent a link and someone is asking for addition to a subscription you have to click the report, then go to the folder and click to get into the manage page for that report. SSRS 2018 had it so the path report name was a link to the properties and saved a lot of headache.

  18. Deployment options: checkboxes for report, dataset and dataflow

    I can understand that some users would get confused by this but it would enable clarity for advanced users.

    As a Power BI Developer, I would like an enhancement to the deployment experience. i

    When publishing a pbix file, an advanced option (hidden by default) that could be optionally expanded with check boxes to deploy as
    • report
    • dataset
    • data flow

    Obviously if the structure of the report required the dataset to be deployed and the report was checked then the dataset would be checked and greyed out.

    Currently if I want deploy only the dataset to be…

  19. The last refresh attempt failed because of an internal service error

    I receive an error msg on Power BI Service "The last refresh attempt failed because of an internal service error " when refreshing my data. I talked to MS Support team and they suggested me to delete the old dataset and upload it again. Why it does not work when I republish the dataset. Isn't the republish should have overwritten the old record?
