  1. Fix your download link!

    It seems like there are numerous complaints about your download link not working. Seriously! This should be the easiest thing to get right. No confidence in dealing any further with MS. cheers

  4. See data feature for the Card visualization.

    Please add the "See Data..." feature in the card visual. I love the format and layout but without being able to see the data behind it, users aren't happy.

  5. About - Version of Power BI desktop more prominent

    Since the Desktop updates so often it would be really nice to see version info in fewer clicks. Maybe even in title bar?

  6. Show if and where the column/formulas are used on the dash

    This would make easier to determine what data itens are useful on the dashboard (and clean up some data never used).

  9. Keep Slicer selection to different sections access

    Would be awesome if the slicer keep the sections of the last access of each user.
    Currently, each user when access a dashboard have a default slicer selection. The slicer could keep the selection maked by each one of users in the last access and restore it.
    Thanks

  10. Content Pack Forum

    Separate idea board for Content packs.
    Several of us have ideas for content packs but as we add ours for votes, they can be repeated or lost in the mix. A separate board would make it easier to find and vote for content packs without scrolling through posts regarding difficulty with existing content packs.

  11. Decouple Power BI self service sign up from Azure AD AllowAdHocSubscriptions

    The AllowAdHocSubscriptions Azure AD setting governs several Microsoft Services not just Power BI. So if an organisation wants to remove sign up for Power BI free only it unnecessarily impacts other services such as Flow, Stream etc.

  12. DB Connection Promotion Easier

    We have database servers for each of our environments: Development, User Testing, Production and Disaster Recovery. It is a PAIN to change the data source right now. You need to borrow an idea from SSRS where the properties of the data source is kept in an object. This way, I can promote a workbook from development to user acceptance to production without touching the data source.

    Thank you.

  13. Name of Dashboard on Sharing Fly-out Screen

    When on the Share dashboard fly-out panel where I can enter email addresses and optional messages to share with people, or view current access, it would be nice if the fly-out had the name of the Dashboard (or really any item) that I am currently modifying/viewing the permissions for. In an environment with a lot of dashboards in the list, there's no indication which one I selected.

  20. Options for "onerror" in scheduled refresh

    Hello there,

    The Power BI database updates every day, but when you add new columns to the SQL table, Power BI blocks the upgrade.

    In other BI tools, you have the option of choosing what to do when adding / removing columns.
    - Block update;
    - Add column;
    - Ignore column.
