  1. Customize Legend Formatting for Perfect Presentation of Totals on Stacked Charts

    Problem: We have users who want to see totals of Stacked Totals on Column Charts.

    Partial Solution: Create a Stacked and Line Column Chart
    >> format the line chart to have 0 (zero) width but present the data label

    Issue: If lets say the line chart is total sales, then total sales will show up in the Legend which is not desirable

    Suggested Idea: Can we edit the legend format so that in this case I could have changed the text color of the legend of the line chart to white so that it would not appear.

  2. Support more than one URL in a field

    If you have a field with more than one URL, than Power BI concatenates the URL's; this is undesired behavior.
    It would be nice that a link is recognized even if there are more than one in a field.

  3. Keep a visual always on back or top, Z-Order lock

    In many case we are using background shapes or objects which are overlapping with other visuals but when user clicks on a part of visual which is on back, it came to top and makes UX very confusing. There should be an option to lock visual z-order regardless of focused visual. So creating more stunning dashboards will be possible. eg. a map on background of whole report and some charts and filters on top of map.

  4. Tooltip to another report

    It would be great if I could set up a tooltip as a separate report, that can be used as a general tooltip for other reports. In that way I don´t have to repeat my tooltip pages (that I hide in my reports anyway) to show my tooltips in a consistent way. Maybe this could work in the same way as the current setup for drill through to other reports.

  5. mquery real time refresh

    In many of the scenarios while using power BI for Project reporting, we leverage data from Project Workspace. The only way to get data from all project workspace for standard list and template is to use MQuery. We have used this so far but the major limitation using MQuery is, it doesn't get refresh automatically with schedule refresh of Power BI. One has to download the report, open in Power BI Desktop, refresh and then publish.

  7. Power BI Release Details

    Please add the Power BI Release (e.g. Apr-2019) to the Details? I read somewhere that April 2019 was scheduled to be released on 4/5/2019. On 4/5/2019, there was a release dated 4/4/2019. However, when I had IT install that version, it was only March 2019 (perhaps an update or fix?) rather than the new April release. Today, 4/10/2019, there is another release, which I assume is April 2019. Now, I need to request IT to update my entire team again.

  10. Additional Data Set Refresh Metadata (Rows Refreshed/Loaded)

    Need to be able to monitor health of refreshed dashboards and troubleshoot if necessary. From time to time a dataset will successfully refresh with zero rows due to operational issues. Can additional dataset refresh metadata be made available to give visibility?

  13. While refreshing Data-source, it deletes the relationship between tables in PBI model

    After refreshing the data source in Pbix file, data model we observed that relationship between the tables was missing, and this caused of data exposing across multiple customers. To investigate more, thought was on the updates that have happened in Power desktop version, where there are some settings as mentioned below in Options menu in PBI Desktop which might be causing this behavior.
    -> Import relationships from data sources
    -> Update relationships when refreshing queries
    -> Auto-detect new relationships after data is loaded

    When talking to Microsoft team, they suggest to unchecked the first two above options which prevents the…

  14. donlowad

    A atualização do Power Bi em Portugues ( Brasil ) de 03/2019, esta com as sintaxe das funções Dax em ingles. Sempre que tem atualização, procuro atualizar o software, ressalto que é apenas a SINTAXE das FUNCOES DAX que estão em ingles.
    Quando esta falha sera ajustada ?
    Isso auxilia bastante no entendimento das funções dax.

  16. Running total for declared date range

    As of right now there are YTD and MTD functions, as well as a DAX function which computes a running total for all time, but we are looking for a means of calculating a running total for a declared date range.

    That is to say, this would be a solution if we wanted to see what the running total was for June of the previous year to April of the current year.

  19. Stop Redirecting to Power BI Home Page

    On an internal webpage, we provide direct links to Power BI shared reports. Whenever we add/delete groups to the shared report/dashboard (share), Power BI redirects ALL users to the Power BI Home page (https://app.powerbi.com/home) the first time a consumer tries to click on the direct link. This leaves the consumer confused thinking the link doesn’t work. The second time they click on the link, Power BI correctly takes them to the actual report. Please fix this to prevent redirecting to the home page after changing report/dashboard shared groups.

  20. Slicer items based on a measure

    Show slicers items based on the values of a measure. Like in some custom slicer visuals allow the built in slicers to show only items in the slicer that have a value of the measure you chose. This way users only see items that they need to rather than a list of items that have no data.
