  1. Access to Excel powerpivot model to be able to edit/modify model without rebuilding dashboard/reports

    Need a page with my uploaded Excel models (or other data sources) where I can download, edit, and re-upload them and refresh the data behind them.

    Hi there. At present, the app refreshes on the following triggers –
    • When the app goes from background to foreground (i.e. switch between apps).
    • Manually (pull to refresh).

    Do you need it to refresh more regularly than that, or on other triggers?

  4. numeric data can be on a gradient when it is set as color

    Basically if you had data with a lot of discreet numbers, when you set it to be the color variable, set a gradient of red to green for example of lowest to highest, instead of random discreet colors for each value.

  5. Silverback Learning MilePost

    Milepost is a data warehouse for k-12 school districts and would be a great data source to be able to create reports and dashboards from.

  6. TurboTax

    We will soon have a QuickBooks connector, why not TurboTax as well? Would be great to pull in TurboTax Data and build a dashboard similar to the QuickBooks one in progress to show income, deductions and expenditures, perhaps comparing income/taxes age/geo for your zip code (from public data). Why? This would be a great way to drive scaled awareness and adoption of Power BI.

  9. Need the ability to configure size limits on the preview page. Large tables sometimes only show a few records.

    In the PowerBI Designer data preview screen, it would be good to have an option to have more data in the preview window. Currently tables get limited and the records shown are sometimes not helpful in data exploration

  11. When "numbers" change in dashboard, it must be fluid

    when users play around, they see awesome animations w.r.t pie graphs, bar charts, line charts etc.

    Can we do the same for the numbers (text object which depicts the summary value). for eg. when 9 changes to 15 it should not be abrupt. you should see the animation of changes from 9 to 15. that gives a good visual presence that numbers changed

  12. Details on when Power BI features are available

    After setting up a data source there is no details available on when it has been indexed for natural language processing or other Power BI features that take a moment to setup.

  13. Query Fields <> Report Fields

    I choose a subset of columns in the Query area, but all columns show in the Report area; I am expecting them to be same as in PowerPivot.

    I am so impressed with what you are doing with this - you are going to set the competition on their heels.

  18. Allow data.gov connections

    Data.gov is a source we go to often to find healthcare or other government related information. Would be nice if this was an option with several sources listed.

  19. Allow me to change the data source used in a Q&A result

    When I have multiple data sources, typing a question doesn't always bring back the right data. I need to be able to change which workbook/connection Q&A uses to show me results.

  20. Need to be able to send a URL to a Q&A result like we do today. This is super critical to make it scalable!

    Currently we use Q&A for all reporting and analytics purpose and the way we do it is to generate a required view through Q&A and send people the link, who can just keep the link which will always provide updated data whenever underlying Q&A workbook refrehes (daily).
