  1. Line charts visuals show values by their own ( ex. For 0.14 it's 0.13999999999) not for all.

    The custom visual for line charts are great , but I am finding one issue. In my database table values are rounded upto two decimal point and line charts visuals is showing some values like 0.139999999999 but these are not actual values (actual value is like 0.14).

  2. Grouping capability in Slicers in Power BI Service

    We are currently having analytics based on location country. We need to have a slicer to get reports for continents. How can we add countries in a group? There does not seem to be any grouping capability available in the Power BI service.

  3. Place to store company assets such as jpeg and video to be used in company reports.

    We want to show pictures in a report based on a slicer value. We don't want to put the pictures on a public website. I can place pictures on a webserver hosted in the company domain but this only works if you are connected to the domain.
    I want a secure place to upload this content so that it is always accessible for colleagues with Power BI access.

  4. Use Windows rules to add a report page

    In Windows we have two basic rules, if we want to insert something

    It inserts at the left of the element or
    it we chose, inserts in the upper

    I have developed a report that contains 30 pages, and every time I have to add a new page, it inserts at the end, and its very time consuming and difficult to move and place the page report where it been supposed to be.

  9. New option on "Manage relationships": Reduce Data

    Many times, one dimension table, for example Products, has many rows with members without facts.
    In the advanced options of the relationship between the dimension and facts table would be useful an option to keep the products with correspondence in facts table.
    That is, only the products that have really been sold

  10. Ability to move Power BI tiles in Dynamics 365 (CRM)

    While I love the fact we can finally embed Power BI tiles to Dynamics 365, it would be even better to be able to move those tiles around in a CRM dashboard. I realize there are tile templates, however, I have several configurations I prefer over the templates. Thank you.

  12. Refresh Power BI Report upon opening it on the site.

    It would be great if we have a feature to refresh the data upon opening the report in the power BI site, if recomended for few reports where high level people wanted to see the live data. Right now we have a schedule refresh, which is refreshing the dataset for 3 hours in day (8 times in a day). If the user wanted to see the live data he has to wait for 3 hours which is stoping them to see the live data.

  14. Visual Separation between pinned items

    I wanted to visually group charts, together as a single KHI when pinning them. They use equidistant spacing and there's no visual queue that some items are related in groups. I the option to add want a box, or spacing around related items to pull them together visually.

  18. On the visual be able to create a new line based on a measure (like average, sum, or others).

    On the visual be able to create a new line based on a measure ( like average, sum, or others) .
    Directly on the visual and avoid to
    - return to Field view,
    - add a measure in DAX,
    - add this new measure as a new line in the visual.

  19. Snap to grid needs to be more like PowerPoint

    I just tried the preview of "view gridlines" and "snap to grid". If you're using a white canvas and white fill on individual visuals, it's hard to align them. The mechanism that PowerPoint uses to snap to other objects is preferable in this situation.

  20. Fixed width bars on bar charts to match fixed axis

    I have a chart that gets updated automatically with data, and I want a fixed bar width so that when I only have one data point for the chart, the bar doesn't resize to overlap several values on the axis. This is necessary to be compatible with a start point and end point on the X-axis.

    This isn't a problem when you have a consistent number of columns, but I can't achieve that without introducing fake data.
