  1. Tables and Matrix sizing

    Enable the users to resize the Table or Matrix easily. Just like in any basic tool, increasing and decreasing the size of Table or a Matrix should affect the size of the columns and rows as well.

  4. Y/Y Change for Ribbon Chart

    It would be great if there were an option to look at y/y changes for the ribbon chart. In retail for example would be best to be able to compare Q4 to Q4 to see how holiday sales trended across one category or another. September update was great!

  7. Power BI Server manage Thresholds

    I want the possibility that a user / account can set there own thresholds on the data. For example on a table. The colours on the table can be adjusted by the user logged in.

  8. Get Apps from Power BI Windows Store App

    From within the Microsoft Power BI (not Power BI Desktop) app downloaded from the Windows 10 Store, solely used to consume reports and dashboards, I'm struggling to see a way to 'Get Apps'.

    This requires the user to log in to the service through a browser, and 'get apps' that way. It would make for a cleaner overall experience, if 'get apps' could be done within the Windows 10 Store app itself.

    Raised only because some of our end users have expressed frustration having to navigate to two places, and the app is a cleaner and more immersive browsing experience.

  10. Freelance Users

    How about letting people who do not have a work or school email address, but have paid the high price of Office product, also access Power BI. For example, freelance researchers and other data self employed scientists who would get great use from this feature. We increasingly live in a 'gig' economy, so why has Microsoft failed to move with this trend?????

  11. Browse through visuals in focus mode

    Especially on mobile devices, where focus mode is used very often, it would be great to browse to the next or previous visual on the report page or dashboard when in focus mode.

  12. Free-Form Text Box for adding comments to visuals

    As an example, if there is a point in a line graph that you want to call attention to and comment on, being able to add a comment to that point in a free-form text box would be very useful.

  13. Slicer Bug

    When a report contains a relative data slicer, and then the user clicks on an image which links to a bookmark of that same report page with a different filter context applied, the relative slicer is reverted to the "between" style slicer.

  15. Prefer the old navigation in Power BI on the web

    I preferred the old navigation on the website compared to the new navigation that we were recently forced over to in late August 2017. It was much simpler in the past (easier on the eye, and fewer clicks were involved).

  16. Automatically Rename Fields From Source

    It would be really cool if you guys added a new transformation for automatically renaming fields from a source into a more "friendly" view for reporting. Many data sources have some form of naming standards (i.e. camelCase, using underscores _, etc...), so a quick replacement of all of the columns with friendly Capitalize Each Word would be cool. It obviously wouldn't be foolproof in certain situations (like camelCase when you have multiple capital letters in a row), but it would handle at least 90% of the columns correctly I would think.
