  1. Filters functionality in landscape mode for Mobile Power BI

    Right now, by design, we cannot use the filter functionality when we are in landscape mode in the mobile app, in order we can use the report/page filters

    Please add this functionality in a way we can use it as in vertical (portrait) mode

    Thanks

    I tested for iOS or Android and it doesn't work in both... this is by design? Or maybe I'm doing a wrong configuration of the PBIX file?

    Thanks for your comments,

    Mauro

    • Fix Releative Date Slicer / UTC issue.

      I know I can change my data to be reflected in UTC but then i suddenly show, for example, Invoices paid Septmeber 30th as being paid in October. this is so wrong!

      You simply need to change PBI where date slicers are reflecting local time and not UTC. I cannot display all of our financial data improperly (as UTC).

      • Rename Totals

        Please allow users to rename totals in the Table and Matrix visual. This is a very important feature to be able to label what the total means for a specific report (e.g. Month Actual adding up to YTD Actual) rather than simply "total". For the time being the only solution is to put a text box over to which goes away in focus mode, etc. Thank you!

        • Page level audit log

          Anyone who uses Power BI and audits its logs will only be able to audit until dashboard level. The idea is to increase the level of detail to page level so that you can know which pages are beeing visited the most/least and by which users. This new information will enable you to modify your dashborads accordingly, enhance them and much more.

          • disable auto time intelligence

            Make the "Auto Time Intelligence" feature a global option that can be turned off for all subsequent PBIX files.

              • Export to PDF needs to include all rows in a Table or Matrix visualization

                The new feature Export to PDF appears to be just a screen capture of each report - whatever is currently being shown on the screen is what is captured in the pdf. When a report has a Table or Matrix visualization on it with rows that scroll beyond what is shown, these are not captured in the pdf. Need to have all the data show up in the pdf.

                • Export Power BI visual matrix to Excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.

                  I want a way to export a visual matrix (already assembled in my Power BI report) and take it to excel, without the data being tabulated vertically.

                  • Activity Monitor Enterprise Gateway

                    It would be very interesting to have the option to see the activity carried out through the gateway in the Power BI service, so that it can be seen in a simple way, the actions of updating the data sets that has been carried out from a gateway / connection, by way of the update history of the data sets but from the administration of the gateway.

                    Regards

                    • Include Reports/Dashboards from Multiple Workspaces in One App

                      Similar to ideas around creating multiple apps from one workspace, it would be very beneficial to have the ability to create a high-level app that includes reports from multiple workspaces. For example, our executive team would like to see specific reports from sales, accounting, and fields ops in one app instead of navigating to three different apps/workspaces to view the appropriate reports.

                      • Microsoft Teams as Data Source

                        I want to connect Microsoft Teams as Data Source by Power BI.

                        Scenario:
                        - Create a report from the topic of the channel of Team.
                        like Word Crowd of the channel.
                        - Create a report from the usage of Microsoft Teams.
                        like the topic count each channel, member count, total duration.
                        - Create a report of usage of Microsoft Teams relate with other systems.
                        like a report with Microsoft Teams and Customer Services.

                        • Axis inversion

                          There should be a field button for inverting the axis. For example, instead of the Y-axis moving upwards from 0 to 100 it should be able to flip and start at 100 and move upwards to 0.

                            • Publish a Power BI Roadmap

                              Currently there does not seem to be a roadmap for Power BI. This makes it very hard to plan implementations, as meetings tend to end up with someone saying "Microsoft must know this is a winning feature. I can't believe it's not on their roadmap."

                              As the person who has to turn the stakeholders dreams into a Power BI reality, this leaves me feeling uneasy, as I can name at least half a dozen must have features that we still don't have.

                              • Disable visual highlighting and interactions

                                When clicking on certain elements of a visual, I can control the interaction this selection has on other visuals within the report, but I was wondering if there is the ability to completely disable the clickability of a visual? I don't want the end users to be able to click on the visual at all, so neither the selected visual or other visuals would be highlighted? Tooltips should still be viewable on hover.

                                This feature should be available for use in both service and desktop.

                                More information on the unsuccessful attempts people have made trying to achieve this with graphs/charts…

                                  The Export to pdf functionality allows us to export or print the report pages. But it would be nice if we could also print/export the bookmarks (all of them or just a folder/group)

                                    • Row based filter at Page level

                                      Stealing this from Tobias Owen on the Feature Summary Blog

                                      The ability to hide pages is brilliant, thank you! Is it possible to apply Row-Level Security to whole pages so that they can be dynamically hidden for some users but not for others?

                                        Currently, the Export to PowerPoint feature exports one image file per report. Update the Export to PowerPoint feature to support exporting an image per report visual instead.

                                          This is a bug report since I couldn't find an easy way to report bugs from the PBI desktop nor the website. In PBI Desktop, when typing a title, the cursor jumps from the title text box to another point on the page after so many characters are typed. This happens everytime when I am trying to type in a title. Please fix.
