  1. Corperate email not accepted

    me and my colleagues would like to sign up for Power BI but our corporate email addresses do not work. How does your system pick up whether an account is corporate or personal?

  2. Filtering data in a Report using two or more visualizations

    It would be nice to have the possibility to filter information using multiple bar, doughnut, etc charts. Currently, it's only possible to "stack" filters by using slicers or a slicer and a visualization chart. My suggestion is to have this enabled between charts. i.e.:

    Report:
    *Chart A: It's a bar chart where Y axis is the sales amounts and X axis the countries.
    *Chart B: it's a doughnut chart with the type of sale (Online sell, on store sell, etc)
    *Table: Multiple columns with high level information.

    Results: Be able to select a particular country bar in the Chart A,…

  3. Increase size of reports in mobile view

    Hello BI Team,

    I was wondering if you could implement a way to change the max size of the mobile layout for reports. Currently it seems to be limited to 2 full screen sizes per report page.

    Thx

  4. We can have Calculated columns and measures for SSAS

    We can have Calculated columns and measures for SSAS for tabular model. So we don't need to change the model every time we need a column/measure.

  6. Ability to Download and Upload DAX Functions by column in a data model

    My team and I work off a lot of common prepared tables yet incorporated in different data models. I would like to see the ability to Export a spreadsheet with the Column Name in Field 1 and the corresponding DAX Function in Field 2. The real cat's pajamas would be to have the ability to re-upload it into another model.

  7. Integrate Power BI with Microsoft Access in their forthcoming version

    Integrating Power BI with MS-Access in their forthcoming version can bring more meaning to both the products. It's like introducing a new Reporting Dimension to Microsoft Access Users and Developers WorldWide.

  11. Expand Matrix and Table to fill the entire screen

    When adding a matrix for the sole purpose of being a drill down, it is frustrating that it has a default size that won't expand even when stretching the box. This makes it far too small for users on tablets to be able to click without hitting the wrong options.

  12. import data based on data model

    QlikView supports this via its LEFT/RIGHT KEEP commands. Basically, if I have a Calendar and an Order tables, and the Order.Date is linked to Calendar.Date, then I would like to load only Order records with matching Order.Date and Calendar.Date. This would ensure data consistency in my data model automatically and eliminate to load too many data not needed. I would like feature to be supported, if possible. Thanks.

  13. Allow Data Label to be Actual Value in 100% Stacked Charts

    If I display a data label for 100% stacked column chart, I can only see the percentage data.

    There are cases where it is important to know that a bigger column actually represents a smaller absolute value

    So if Category A has Series 1 Value 2 and Series 2 Value 1
    and Category B has Series 1 Value 10 and Series 2 Value 90

    I'd like to see 2 and 10 appear on the Series 1 block, not 67% and 10%

  14. Drill down security

    Add the capability to lock down or obfuscate lower levels of a hierarchy.

    Typically aggregate values are not sensitive however lower level details are so adding the ability to either hide or mask data when drill down on lower levels of a hierarchy would be highly beneficial.

  15. add an option to validate all the direct query's reports

    as an admin, I want to validate if all the published reports are working fine.
    if there is a refactoring in my SSAS server, I want to check all the online reports connected to my cube. and verify that each one is still working fine, or if the change break some of them.

  16. "Snap to Grid" for Multiple Objects

    I really like the new "snap to grid feature"; however, it only works when moving/sizing one object at a time. It would be nice to select multiple visuals and move/size them all with the "snap to grid" feature.

  18. Selecting a Legend Item should zoom in the Y-Axis

    I have a column chart with some values dominating the scale. If I select the legend item, the other columns do shade away, but the Y-Axis remains the same, still making it very difficult to see the actual columns of what I selected.
    If the Y-Axis would rescale when selecting the legend item, to the max of the selected item, that would be great.

  19. For workspaces - need to have a third category for members. Need third hybrid category.

    In workspaces - members can be admin or view only. need a third hybrid category, where they can create a report, based off of published reports and save it in their own workspace. I would like my members to be able to re-order columns, add and remove existing KPIs, change a bar chart to a pie, etc. But not change security or the default reports and dashboards. There is no reason they should not be able to customize and save their own view of a report though. No way for them to do this.
