  1. Limits

    A limit addition to bar and line graphs to show thresholds. Options could include a set limit, moving average, and an operating range.

  2. When "numbers" change in dashboard, it must be fluid

    when users play around, they see awesome animations w.r.t pie graphs, bar charts, line charts etc.

    Can we do the same for the numbers (text object which depicts the summary value). for eg. when 9 changes to 15 it should not be abrupt. you should see the animation of changes from 9 to 15. that gives a good visual presence that numbers changed

  3. Details on when Power BI features are available

    After setting up a data source there is no details available on when it has been indexed for natural language processing or other Power BI features that take a moment to setup.

  4. Query Fields <> Report Fields

    I choose a subset of columns in the Query area, but all columns show in the Report area; I am expecting them to be same as in PowerPivot.

    I am so impressed with what you are doing with this - you are going to set the competition on their heels.

  6. Categorical axis on scatterplot

    Is there any way to put categorical values on scatterplot's axis? It's fine to disable "play" axis for this situation. This helps to identify correlations among categorical values.

  8. Installation of Analysis Services Connector should test the connection with impersonation at the end

  12. Allow data.gov connections

    Data.gov is a source we go to often to find healthcare or other government related information. Would be nice if this was an option with several sources listed.

  13. Allow me to change the data source used in a Q&A result

    When I have multiple data sources, typing a question doesn't always bring back the right data. I need to be able to change which workbook/connection Q&A uses to show me results.

  14. Need to be able to send a URL to a Q&A result like we do today. This is super critical to make it scalable!

    Currently we use Q&A for all reporting and analytics purpose and the way we do it is to generate a required view through Q&A and send people the link, who can just keep the link which will always provide updated data whenever underlying Q&A workbook refrehes (daily).

  17. Unmapped Geographic Names

    There should be a mechanism by which powerview tells me how many of my geographical names are not mapped. I should be able to see such names also.

  18. Have the option to add data tables for different charts

    http://xlsxwriter.readthedocs.org/en/latest/_images/chart_data_table2.png

    By having data table with charts, we don't need to apply filters on both table and chart but only 1 chart-table combo; we don't need to worry about aligning and scrolling a table and a chart at the same time; we can have legends on data table, which is impossible if we have table and chart separate

    Hi Pradeep. Can you please elaborate on this suggestion? What do you mean be a multiple series chart? You can add many series to a chart already – drop a field into the ‘Legend’ box to create a series. You can use the ‘Combo chart’ chart type to show series with very different values too.

    Can you please create another suggestion for ‘Dynamic Expression’ and add some detail there too? That way we can track the importance of both of these ideas!

    Thank you!

  20. Add the date range or criteria to the tile and filter based on date dynamically

    The tiles should display the time period of the data within... and either being able to change the timeframe on a tile or on the entire dashboard.
    This is a big concern for me in Salesforce Reporting. I want to be able to perhaps look at activity on one page that might show 90 days, 180, and 365 for example.
