          • 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.

                • ability to rename a query item (field) in a dataset

                  Power BI should be able to propagate changes in fields (eg. rename of 'customer_name' to 'customer_full_name') in a dataset to all the reports using this dataset in powerbi service.

                  This functionality is essential if Power BI is to be used as a Self Service BI tool, which allows users to define their own reports based on the dataset.

                  Currently a change of fieldname will cause existing reports to fail.

                  possible solutions I can think of :
                  1. every query item is identified by an internal id, and every report refers to this internal item id (instead of the item name).…

                  • URL as function for buttons

                    Please add the possibility to enter URL's as a function/action for buttons/images. This way it would be very easy to, for example, place links to related websites (i.e. sources) and a button to toggle to a "fullscreen-mode" (?chromeless=1).

                    • Take or Transfer Ownership of a Dataflow

                      Add the ability to take or transfer ownership of a dataflow to another user. Currently all I see is a message indicating only the owner can edit the dataflow. This is needed to enhance maintainability and enable enterprise level support of a dataflow if the owner is out of office or leaves the company. At least the same take ownership option that is already available with datasets.

                      • 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!

                        • 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?

                          • 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.

                            • Allow Power BI Desktop to Create Perspectives (Similar to Power Pivot, SSAS)

                              Perspectives are an incredibly useful feature for complex models for end-users. For a complex model, there can be 50+ Tables with 100s of Columns and Measures (sometimes 1000+). This can be overwhelming for a new user who would connect to the Data Model to create their own reports (either using Power BI or Excel).

                              Adding the ability to create Perspectives in Power BI Desktop (similar to Power Pivot, SSAS) would be a big help.

                              Perspectives allow end-users to connect to a "slice" of the Model, making it easier to understand and work with. Thus aiding with the widespread adoption and…

                              • Rotate text box

                                Please add a basic feature with ability to rotate a text box. In many report I would like to use screen real estate effectively by having text vertically on the left allowing full height for visuals. All Office apps have this basic feature.

                                • 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).

                                  • 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.

                                    • Tooltips for buttons

                                      Since the July release it is possible to use tooltips on tables.
                                      It would be great if this option can be used on buttons in the action section.
                                      Now we have 'Back', 'Bookmark' and 'Q&A'
                                      Is it possible to add 'Tooltip' for buttons, so it's possible to use (for example) an info button, which shows information about the current report or visual for customer purposes?

                                      • ODBC Data Sources in Dataflows

                                        Please add ODBC data source connectors for Dataflows. Many of our queries connect through ODBC drivers because direct access to the DB2 database is not allowed through the DB2 driver.

                                        • Power BI Desktop - Tear Away Development Windows

                                          I suspect that many of us today have multiple monitors and/or large monitors. To make better use of the screen area during Power BI Development....

                                          The development panes such as Fields, Visualisations, Selection, Sync Slicers, Field Properties should be able to be "torn away" and freely move to another screen... and/or allowed to float over the work area. This should also include a separate window pane for DAX code.
