    Hello,
    We are wanting to measure the number of access to the web via scenarios, then we try to add the JavaScript code in the scenario, however is popping up a bar on top with the information we have external codes and unreliable (the Microsot) in that scenario. Some "native" to not display this warning message? or some other way to measure the number of access per day of my users?

    Thank you

  3. power bi web

    My suggestion is that we can create measures in the Power BI Web same feorma we got the Power BI Desktop , as this facilitates and fully optimizes the dashboard of job creation when we are not on the internal network of the company. For example .: All my reports are connected to the database through a query in SQL Server only can edit the tables when I'm on the internal network .

    Hugs.

  5. Calculated field support image url

    If the measure / calculated field would support image urls you could do quick and dirty KPI based on a DAX expression

    Indicator = IF(SUM ( Dashboard[Lead Paid Count]) < 100, "https://redarrow.png", "https://greenarrow.png"))

  8. "Scoped" data refresh

    Allow me to scope the data refresh to only refresh items that exhibit certain characteristics. EX) updated in the last X days, created in the last X days, etc.. I have a SharePoint list that has 100,000 rows and when we perform a data refresh it takes an EXTREMELY long time over the Enterprise Data Gateway. The list goes back to 2001 and so I actually don't need ALL items refreshed, but only ones recently edited/created. This would help our internal resources as well as your cloud resources by not having us send more data over the network than needed.

  10. Option to remove terrain coloring from Filled Map visual

    Can we have an option to remove the coloring for elevation, bodies of water, etc. from the filled map visual? It's an incredible distraction from the actual data.

  11. auto changing visuals tiles in dashboard

    Say I have several visuals I want to put in a single dashboard, yet I don't want to occupy the whole canvas.
    It would be a nice feature if one can put several different visuals in the same canvas space and the dashboard will change them in a loop by predefined selected second, with the ability to pause the changing tiles by mouse hovering over the visual.

  12. Mobile refresh not working

    I have an internal tabular model and we use enterprise gateway preview, when using mobile app it does not refresh. We have to go to the web version and refresh the dashboard first then the mobile will update. It would be great to have the mobile app refresh the data source!

  14. Add Datestamp to ellipsis in Reports

    In Power BI service, the "Datasets" has helpful information if you click the ellipsis next to the dataset: last refresh datestamp (and next scheduled refresh). This helps differentiate datasets. A common use case might be to have a "Dev" and a "Prod" dataset... This is a really helpful feature when determining which datasets have been refreshed.

    The "Reports" have no helpful information if you click on the ellipsis. They should have a last refreshed datestamp, who uploaded/authored the report, who refreshed the report, etc. so you can differentiate reports.

    Similarly, the "Dashboards" also don't have any helpful datestamp information.

  16. Expand Power BI REST API IMPORTS

    It would be great if the existing API returning information about IMPORTS would be expanded with dates describing user activity.

    New fields are “createdDateTime” (the report create data) and “updatedDateTime” (the report edit date) for REPORTS section, and “refreshDateTime” (when data was refreshed) for DATASETS section.

    Like this:
    https://api.powerbi.com/beta/myorg/imports

    {
    "value": [
    {
    "id": "xxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "importState": "Succeeded",
    "createdDateTime": "2016-05-31T10:31:36.05",
    "updatedDateTime": "2016-06-02T09:05:57.863",
    "reports": [
    {
    "id": "yxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "name": "ImportName",
    "webUrl": "https://app.powerbi.com/reports/yxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "embedUrl": "https://app.powerbi.com/reportEmbed?reportId=yxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "createdDateTime": "2016-05-31T10:31:36.05",
    "updatedDateTime": "2016-06-02T09:05:57.863"
    }
    ],
    "datasets": [
    {
    "id": "zxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "name": "ImportName",
    "tables": [],
    "webUrl": "https://app.powerbi.com/datasets/zxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "refreshDateTime": "2016-06-02T09:05:57.863"
    }
    ],
    "name":…

  17. Max table number

    Bug
    We have a big database (SQL server 2012) with about 4000 tables.
    When I try to choose some tables (recently added) I can't see it in table browser in Power BI. Other tools (SQL Management studio) have no problems with it - all table are visible.

  19. Visualization > Format > General > Display Calculated X Position + Width and Y Position + Height

    Visualization > Format > General > Display Calculated X Position + Width and Y Position + Height

    This will help with report visualization design. Without this feature the user is constantly doing math to figure out where a visual's right and bottom side are ending.
