  1. Map Format Options

    Maps need option to format the colours to have black/white or change detail such as boundaries and names that show. Also the ability to label bubbles with the values and change their colour.

  2. Optimize oData Queries

    Currently when you design an OData feed some information is left out which you can see when executing in the browser, you then need to expand out the record and all of a sudden the query seems to take an age to run, even though it executed in less than a couple of seconds in your browser. This is not good, please investigate this.

  3. Supporting Just-in-time editing of reports - Add/Edit/Remove measures in PBI.com

    Users should be able to make just in time edits as and when they present dashboards. Here is an example. If my dashboard currently display mean & std., deviation. If I'm asked to show the 95th percentile during a exec., review, currently there is no way to bring it up in the dashboard. It requires going back and editing the PBIX file in desktop & re-publish. Same can be applied for updating the target value in a gauge - Simple change, but tedious steps

  7. Select Next or Previous value in a slicer

    Currently, slicers are mostly multiple selection type.

    It would be great if you can add a feature that will allow the end user to select the NEXT or the Previous value.
    For example, if we use a country slicer which is currently set to United Kingdom, by clicking 'NEXT' the slicer would move to Uruguay (assuming the values are by alphabetical order)

  9. Create a User License or Add Functioanlity to Sharepoint

    Right now the only way I can share dashboards through content packs with coworkers is if they have a pro license. There should be a "User" license or we should have the ability to publish dashboards in SharePoint. I would think that most users just need to use dashboards not actually create or edit them.

  10. Option to delete accompanyi​ng reports and datasets when deleting a dashboard

    It would be convenient to have checkboxes on the delete screen to provide the option to delete associated objects (Dashboard, Report, Dataset). When cleaning up my workspace, I have to manually delete individual objects and it can be cumbersome.

  13. Colloboration Functionality in Workspace Groups

    As we get deeper into infrastructure and project design it has been apparent that having all of the information for a project build is really handy when collaborating within a workspace group.

    What I have found however is that to avoid having multiple repositories for a Power BI project (IE documentation on SharePoint, Datasources and Visuals in Power BI etc), we have been adding tabs purely for documentation purposes and a report with project notes shared and embedded there.

    What I think would be a really cool enhancement would be to have a little extended functionality within Workspace Groups to…

  15. Incremental drill - down

    a feature that would enable incremental drill-down over multiple graphs. If I select an item in graph 1, it would be very convenient to be able to also click on an item in graph 2 and have the sum of those selections (ie ctrl-click) applied to the graphs. Now the only way to achieve this is using page level filters but that takes away from the “journey” that is given when clicking on the data

  16. power bi desktop files from one drive

    i have a power bi desktop file in One Drive that contains queries connected to on premise MySQL database. I have another Excel workbook in One Drive that contains the exact same Power queries.

    If i import the Excel workbook to Power BI, then the Power BI reports can refresh automatically whenever I update the Excel workbook in One Drive.

    However, when I import the Power BI desktop file to Power BI, the report cannot be refreshed. It would throw a personal gateway error but i'm not using personal gateway!

    Can you fix this so that refreshing of Power BI…

  17. Allow Custom Visuals to Display on Group Sites.

    Currently if Custom Visuals are imported into a PBIX and published via a content pack to a group site they can be displayed at All.
