  1. Provide language translation support present in SSAS to Power BI Service

    Currently language translation in SSAS is supported in Power BI Desktop. However, my clients are expecting multi-lingual support in Power BI service as well. Based on user's location setup in mobile / desktop / laptop, it should automatically change the dashboards and reports to local language if language translation was done in SSAS.

    • Enable Power BI Titles to Wrap Text!

      Enable the Titles on visuals (for example, the KPI and column charts) to wrap text.

      • Mapping Visuals Should Send All Location Data to the Bing Service

        If I add a list of State codes to the location card on a map, the results will normally not be accurate. The States selected could be from anywhere in the world - if you don't add the country details first, you get inconsistent results. There is a work around that can be achieved by adding the Country and State to the location section like this

        Country
        State
        Address

        You can then click Expand All Down to get the fully qualified state and address WITHIN the correct country. While this works, it is inconvenient and I think there is a…

          • Azure AD B2B guest users able to open Power BI Apps in the mobile app.

            It's great that we currently have Azure AD B2B available for Power BI. However it is not possible to give external guest users access to Power BI reports / dashboards in the mobile application.

            This needs to happen before we are able to really use AAD B2B, unfortunately for now we are still stuck creating local AAD users for the external guest users.

            • Smaller shapes in scatter charts

              The size of the shapes in scatter charts can be adjusted, but the 0 % size is too large. More scale should be added to the lower end, to allow for small points which help to make charts with lots of data much more readable.

              The problem has been discussed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/scatter-chart-point-size/td-p/37760

              This idea is similar: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/14905752-allow-constant-point-size-in-scatter-visualization

              • Folders in Workspace

                Folders in workspaces foster hierarchical organization within workspaces. Currently, you can create workspaces but each report is on the same level within those workspaces. You as administrator can't organize them and users that have access to those workspaces have to scroll through multiple reports.

                Seems like a very Microsoft feature that folks would use and like!

                • Allow individuals to be set as Data Source Admins

                  Currently there are admins for the gateway who can admin the environment and the data sources and users who can access specific data sources. There should be an intermediate level of admin capabilities that would allow PBI Gateway admins to assign users the rights to administer specific data sources. Our issue is that the passwords for the service accounts that are used in the DSN change regularly. As usage of the gate2way grows it will become unworkable for an individual or group to manage all the various DSNs in an organization. The DSN admin should have rights to modify any…

                  • Bookmarks on BI Service at Dashboard level

                    Loving the new bookmarking feature, however working within an organisation where Power BI has just been introduced the majority of our dashboards are pinned reports to dashboard level. It would be AMAZING if the bookmarks (linked to images) worked on the dashboard level.

                    If you can pin an entire report and the interactive visuals work, logic dictates that any image-based bookmarks should also work. Also adding bookmarks to filters would be heaven.

                    I appreciate that bookmarks are in preview but would welcome any indication of further bookmark developments?

                    • Allow custom fonts in text boxes and perhaps all visuals (at least titles)

                      Allow custom fonts in text boxes. Power BI Desktop should allow any font that is installed in Windows. Feel free to put certain parameters around the font type so that it can be appropriately rendered and exported. But in general, why can't we have more fonts?

                      • Please put "Logout" button in Power BI Report Server

                        There is no option for user to logout from Power BI Report Server. Currently, when user wants to logout, user will just have to close the browser/tab. It would be nice to have the logout button. Please add this for security purposes.

                          • Lower cost licensing options

                            If you don't have SQL Server Enterprise with SA, the only licensing options available are quite cost prohibitive for small implementations.

                            Pro User = $10/month
                            Premium =$5k/month minimum
                            Embedded=$750/month minimum

                            If only sharing a small number of reports with other users (view only) it is impossible to justify the cost.

                            • Specify Timezone for Relative Date Filter

                              I would love to utilize the Relative Date filter to handle things like current month, current year etc. However, when published up to the service, the relative date filter utilizes UTC timezone, and there's no way to account for this currently.

                              Please allow the ability to specify a timezone to be used by relative date filters, whether it be a tenant wide Power BI Admin setting, or something you can specify in the individual report level.

                              • Connector for Azure Blob to include Azure AD

                                Include the ability to use Azure AD for authentication when using the Azure Blob connector in Power BI.

                                Azure AD in Azure Blob Storage is in Public Preview at this point and it would be ideal to have Azure AD as an option in the connector for Power BI when it goes GA.

                                • Javascript API to get selected data

                                  It would be nice if there was a Javascript API to get the selected data in a visual (to know wich bar / lines / rows are selected in a visual).

                                  Currently we have a dataSelected event that's available, but the event doesn't tell us if we have multiple data that are selected (if the user selected the data with the Ctrl key pressed) and we don't really know when the data is unselected.

                                  Thanks!
