  1. Maintain state of button when selected

    Maintain the state of a Button when it is selected to show the user that the button has been pressed. Currently, when the Button is selected, it only briefly changes state and then returns to default.

    For example, when the button is pressed and it is designated to fill grey when selected, the Buttons fill only momentarily turns grey, and then returns to default. The state of the selected formatting should remain when the Button is pressed.

    • Email Subscriptions - Very Poor Image Quality

      We are seeing extremely poor quality images within the email and the attachments for Report subscriptions coming from the Power BI Service.

      The image quality is so poor that it frustrates and disappoints our executive audience so much that we will not use the subscription option until we have a better solution.

      Our execs want mission critical stats pushed to them in an email so they can get a quick read on the business, they don't have the desire or the time to go to the Power BI Service to see them in high quality.


      We push reports to about…

      • Enable PowerBI-Javascript to support "rendered" state

        I want to be able to determine if my Power BI embedded dashboard has started rendering, and when it has finished rendering (and any possible states in between) to provide performance measurements for my project.

        • Can't publish Import-only report once opened with Composite models turned on

          I'm getting the message:

          "Publishing is disabled:
          This file can't be published to the Power BI service yet because it includes the following preview features: Composite models"

          When all my queries are Import--this report is also already published.

          I think I opened it with the Composite models preview feature enabled and it some how thinks the queries are DirectQuery.

          Maybe this is related to known bug of new queries always being DirectQuery when Composite models are enabled.

          If I turn off Composite models and attempt to open my Import-only report, I get the message:

          "Unable to open document
          In order…

          • Power BI Home: let users pin tiles to Home

            the selection in Power BI Home is based on usage, but sometimes user behaviour shows that a dashboards is being looked at and then you jump into a different report. Let users decide what is important to them and let them be able to pin it to Home, (from APPs and from Workspaces!)

            • Power BI Home: Rearrange selected tiles

              Power BI Home shows a selection of tiles most frequently used from favorited dashboards. But sometimes the alignment of the tiles does not make sense. There should be an option to re-arrange that

              • Power BI Home: Theming

                We have themes in Dashboards and reports but not Power BI Home. Would be great to have this added to the backlog. That way we can align the Home experience with the rest of the look and feel of our reports and dashboards (incl logo, text tiles for links etc.)

                • Emails sent from Power BI are only in English

                  When sharing a dashboard or invite somebody to a shared workspace, the emails are sent in English instead of our tenant language (or the users language).

                  • Prevent user (service-side) from entering Edit-mode in Embedded App Owns Data scenario

                    Currently there is no option in Power BI Embedded API´s or Power BI Service settings to disable a report from being loaded into ‘Edit’-mode by using for instance a Javascript debugger in a web browser, in an app-owns-data Power BI embedded solution. Setting the ViewMode property in Javascript can easily be overridden in any client-side debugger tool. Once an end-user of a website has entered the report in edit mode, the imported data model (i.e. table structure) and all it´s underlying actual data, down to a row-level, is fully exposed to the end-user to freely browse.

                    What would appear to…

                    • Custom Unknown member

                      Add a parameter to specify a custom value for an "unkown member", when there is no related value between the fact table and the dimension table.

                      It possible to do this with SSAS multi-dim : https://docs.microsoft.com/fr-fr/sql/analysis-services/lesson-4-7-defining-the-unknown-member-and-null-processing-properties?view=sql-server-2017

                      • Editable Report Lever Filter Names

                        The option should exist to change the name of a filter at the report level, similar to how you can change the name of a column in the report to something different than what is in the source system

                        That way, such as is the case with the SSAS connections, you don't have to change all the names in a database to accommodate specific naming conventions for filtering

                        • Different default drill-downs level based on AD groups on one report

                          I have a case where I would like to show different default drill-down level based on AD groups on one report. In other words, I have a geo hierarchy where I have Region->Sub-region->Country, and AD groups limit the access to data, based on users' geographical location. There are AD groups for each Region and a Global AD group that sees all the data.

                          I would like to have a possibility for the Global AD group to see the default drill-down in visualizations as the Region level and Regional AD groups to see the default drill-down in visualizations as the Sub-region…

                          • calculated default values for slicers

                            It would be nice to be able to set a calculated default value for slicers...example: when I open a report with a date slicer, the latest date on the list is selected by default so my report isn't empty on open. My solution has slicer values from today backwards.

                              In the "Allows Slicers to apply to all Pages of a Report" request, Microsoft resolved the issue only for built in slicers. Need this functionality to work for ALL slicers, both built in and custom.

                                It's great that Power BI already has the capability to run R scripts for data transformation. It would be even better if we could run Python script.

                                  • Data Connection Credential Manager

                                    The first time you create a Data Connection you have the option to specify connection credentials.

                                    But if you configure it improperly/make a typo then the connection fails and you can't access the credential popup box again. The way to fix is to go to File/Options and Settings/Data Source Settings/{Select connection}/Clear Permissions and then redo the connection from scratch.

                                    If the connection fails I would like to be able to access the popup credential manager again for ease of use.

                                    • Add imported theme to "Switch Theme" menu

                                      The September 2018 desktop release made Switch Theme generally available. With it you can import a custom theme from a .json file.

                                      Once imported, the imported theme become active, but, even though there is a theme Name in the .json file, the new theme name is not added to the menu of choices and there is no indication that the theme with that name is now active.

                                      Please add imported themes to the menu and do something to highlight which theme is currently active.
