  1. Field fixed during chart drill down for hierachy

    We would like to give below suggestion for enhancing chart drill-down functionality.
    1) If we use drill-down with hierarchy, we would like to fix x-axis field during drill down to next level. For ex. if we use "Year" and "Category hierarchy" then during drill down, Year should be fixed on X-axis.For more details, please refer this

    http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Help-on-drill-down-with-hierarchy-in-chart/m-p/42714

    2) Possibility to add all level of hierarchy in Legend.

    Thank you in advance!

  2. Scatter plot color formatting

    There doesn't currently seem to be a way to format colors after you've placed a value in the Play axis. Being able to manipulate this in the same manner as when it is placed in the Details field would be helpful.

  3. Inaccurate circular dependencies

    Currently, the framework of Power BI throws circular dependency errors, but even in cases where it is not true. For example, let's say I have a table with three columns and two rows (A1, B1, C1, A2, B2, C2) where A is a fact value (eg. volume), B is a calculated volume and C is dependent on the calculation B. However, the calculation of B is the total of A and C for all rows whose index is before the current row.

    Power BI views this is a circular dependency, because it is only looking at column references; not the…

  7. Make it possible to use the attributes of the dimension members of the SSAS MD as the spatial coordinates for cartographic maps instead of m

    Make it possible to use the attributes of the dimension members of the SSAS MD as the spatial coordinates for cartographic maps instead of measures. Hide coordinate information on the tooltips when used together with the Location field.

  9. Power BI with CRM online for limited users

    I want to embed Power BI Dashboards and reports for CRM Users with the CRM securiy. Also I need not only the tiles from a dasboard - I need to embed Reports from Power BI with filters via URL (e.g. to get a selected product or account from the crm)

    Next it will be great to live query the CRM online datasource to get live data.

  10. Define (pie) chart slice colour based on column value

    Define (pie) chart slice colour based on column value. So when selecting a dimension\detail that has a colour name, use that name for the colour.

  11. Conditional formatting

    When i use conditional formatting in tables where it changes the color between 2 values (0 and 1) the colorization is working fine (like red and green).
    But when i use crossfiltering through a donut chart for example, so that i will only have lines in the table with 0 or 1 in that column, it shows for both numbers the same color (for both filtered colums green now).
    Ofcourse it's logical, because there is only one number now, but would be nice if the values keep their color after filtering.

  12. XIRR produces different results in Power BI than Excel. XNPV matches though

    I got an error trying to calculate xirr:

    MdxScript(Model) (1,42) Calculation error in measure
    ... The XIRR function couldn't find a solution

    The same set of cashflows produce a number in Excel -
    XNPV works in both cases but it looks like the root finder is not converting in Power BI but it works find in Excel

  13. Automatically detect CR/newline characters while importing from text files

    On text import, I had issues with some records containing <CR> within a field.
    In this case, either reading all the way to <CR><LF> or reading n complete lines until the number of delimiters is the same as the rest of the file would have solved this

  16. Refreshing Excel Files in OneDrive loaded in Desktop and published to cloud.

    When you load an Excel File (stored in OneDrive Personal) into Power BI Desktop, once you publish to the web, the data set should automatically refresh / allowed to be manually refreshed.

    Currently i note you can load a OneDrive - Personal file from the cloud and can refresh it. But if you utilise a OneDrive file on the desktop you cannot refresh it once it has been published to the cloud (without Personal Gateway).

    Apologies if this has been implemented. I just can't find any reference on how to do it.

  18. Ability to filter a measure in a visualization

    As currently it is possible to set and Conditional Format on a measure it should be possible to also filter an individual measure.
    This way it would be possible to e.g. compare growth for a specific product vs. average growth. Well aware this is possible via DAX but this would be easier and available to more users.
