  1. Allow grouping attributes and measures in a custom group with custom label

    Especially connecting to SSAS Tabular model which might be very complex and may have 1000s of attribute and lots of measures, it would be nice to see them in customized group that is more suitable to business's need. it would be easy for end user to find the measures and fields from the field well..

  2. Import crosstab spreadsheet

    I have information with say two levels of attributes in the first two lines of the data import.
    PowerQuery must convert this to a tabular view for data import and analysis

  3. Sectioning the area to analyze charts of interests

    Sectioning the areas to analyze charts of interests

    Sectioning the area to analyze charts of interests. (ex. qualitative, quantitative, impact, etc analysis)--good if drilling down also align to the interest on analysis. (At the moment all the charts are changing upon a selection made)

  6. Ability to turn counts or sums to proportions

    Sometimes when there is a difference in the sample sizes for two groups it is important to look at the proportions instead of just the counts or sum. This at least helps to see visually if there is a difference among the groups (of course statistical testing would reveal if there is truly a significant difference between the groups or not). It would be ideal if every time we don't have to create a calculated field to do that.

  8. Count Distinct in Q & A & Dashboard Views

    It seems that when I send a query such as "Count Distinct of Item Title" from my data set, it ignores Distinct, and only provides a summary. Likewise, if I create a report that uses count distinct, and pin it to the dashboard, it treats it as Count (not blank), so the wrong value appears in the dashboard.

  9. Connect to GitHub without forcing user to provided access to all private and public repos.

    I would like to try GitHub as a data source but when I attempt to connect it to my account PowerBI requests full access to all public and private repos. Would be nice if I could test it on just my public repos and if it proved useful then connect it to my full account.

  10. Reconciliation and de-duplication against an authority source or file.

    By reconciliation I mean finding similar or equal data in both data sets.

  12. Filter by fields not included in the data set when pulling from SSAS in the Designer

    When pulling data in from a SSAS cube it would be nice to be able to filter the results by a certain fields, but not necessarily include those fields in the data set. This would reduce the size of the dataset coming back over the network.

  14. Use Expression.Evaluate in Power Query with other formula syntax

    What would really be useful is this: to be able to tell Power Query to EVALUATE based on desired source syntax, whether it be Excel, PowerPivot (DAX) or SQL. It would work like automation, but only get the appropriate “formula” engine. Something like Expression.Evaluate(FormulaEvaluator.PowerPivotAddin(“MyDAXFormula”)).

  16. Sharing Dashboard charts - Create once, use many!

    It would be nice if the user can create the chart tiles and share them so that they can be used directly in other dashboards created by the same user or other users (Similar to sharing Power Query datasets I think!)

  19. Gages need more control over settings

    I have a Gage that displays a metric of 16.5, Target of 14, Min of 0 and Max of 30. But with all that information, I STILL don't know if I'm on target or not. Should I be BELOW 14, or ABOVE it? If I'm a NASCAR pit crew being measured by time (seconds) for a pit stop, 16.5 seconds is slow (LOWER is better). If I'm measuring Profit Margin, then HIGHER is better. You need ONE MORE setting on the control to indicate the desired DIRECTION.

    Also, from there, if you color shade the arch from green to red…

  20. Provide control over which SSAS models I would like to expose through the AS connector

    Currently the AS connector once connected to an SSAS server exposes all models on the server. This could be a security issue. It would be great if one could have control over the models I would like to expose on a server.
