            • Support for importing from PowerPivots shared on O365 or SharePoint

              Importing from Excel currently does not seem to support PowerPivot and requires a local path to the file.

                • Add ability to connect to our database on Win Azure

                  Add ability to connect to our database on Win Azure
                  we can login with our Azure account, and select DB and that is it.

                  As an app owners on Azure we can benefit from power BI analysis

                  • Titles in Reports

                    When I name a title and description on a dashboard, that should also be translated to the report. Users get confused when clicking into the report with a generic title.

                    • PowerPivot Workbooks with direct connections be made refreshable

                      I connect to my SQL sources directly from with PowerPivot, there is no need for me to use PowerQuery. I would like such Workbooks which use this method of obtaining data to be refreshable in PowerBI, currently it is not.

                        • Integrate Powerbi with Pivot tables

                          Hi, I have used Powerview extensively. Pivot table connected to a Tabular Model is today the best available tool for pivoting. Nothing to beat it. howevere powerview and pivot tables are not integrated to each other, i.e. they do not share the same parameters. The filters I have selected in Powerview shold also filter (optionally) a pivot table also.

                              • CRM user rights

                                Hi,
                                As a single user credentials is used in PowerBI, we cannot really deploy PowerBI in Dynamics CRM online because, the same data are displayed for all the users.
                                Shall we build several PowerBI with several credentials ?

                                    • Allow canceling of report actions, or defer layout updates

                                      Sometimes clicking the wrong field means you have to wait a long time for the visual to refresh before you can change it. Let me either cancel the change/refresh or "Defer Layout Updates" as in Excel pivot tables

                                        Pepperi (http://www.pepperi.com/en/) is an international sales software that is used to manage large B2B sales teams and track their success.

                                        It would be great to have the data available via Microsoft Power BI.
