  3. Direct connection to web service without Excel spreadsheet?

    Direct connection from dashboard to web service?

    Is there a way, in HTML5 and JS, to create a connection to a WebService and create a chart? Especially if I do not have a spreadsheet.

    This is a really interesting idea Michael, thanks! The ability to ‘guide’ users with a prompt that shows them the measure or dimensions they can use on a particular visual would help them understand how to build the charts they need. Everyone can keep voting on this if they think it would be useful for them too!

  8. Improve Q&A info navigation by understanding R and SQL logical conventions

    Currently Q&A natural language only works for the simplest data statements. For almost all of our data models, it would help A LOT if Q&A could understand some specific logical statements which would allow us to identify non-ambiguously some subsetted information to chart. I can add examples if you'd like. Currently Q&A is too primitive for more complex data models with some ambiguities.
    (although I love the natural language dream, it's not really good enough yet for our scenarios and data models.

  9. Restate Dashboard Name During Sharing Workflow

    Unless I'm missing it, I would suggest you restate the name of the dashboard that the user is within when they are going to share it out with someone else so they can confirm during this workflow step if they indeed are in the dashboard they really want to share out. I currently do not see this name repeated in this workflow.

    THANKS!

  11. Issue with Custom Time control

    Custom timer- we can change background color to black but the problem is - navigation text color ( black ) can’t be changed and that’s why the moment we change background color to black , navigations disappears.

  12. resource limitations not alligned between O365 and Power BI

    After a conversation with a Microsoft engineer via a service request it seems that a time-out came from O365 and not from Power BI.
    The data refresh time-out for O365 powerpivot workbooks is set to 30 minutes while for Power BI datasets it is 1 hour. Actually reading the data sources into the workbook/datasets only takes 10 minutes, the rest is model processing.
    The 3 issues I encountered with the powerpivot workbook on O365 are:
    - Give more detail on error messages: the Power BI error message didn't give any hint whatsoever that the issue was in O365 and not…

  16. Web Search

    When searching Bing for example, let the user select what they want on their dashboard. For example, I want the actual Seahawks schedule, not the Bing search results for Seahawks schedule.
