  3. Drag select in slicer and default Search icon

    When you have 100 items in a slicer, it would be good to have Drag and select multiple. Search icon is difficult to find for users. would be good if its visible without any clicks.

  5. Microsoft-published custom visuals as default

    Include all Microsoft-published Custom Visuals as part of Power BI desktop and Power BI service. This change will allow users to more easily select different types of visualizations for their reports. This change would also remove some of the poor user experience of seeing the nagging warning "danger! There's a potentially malicious custom visual in this report". If the visual is built by Microsoft it should be able to pass a security muster and thus be safe to run in all circumstances.

  7. Ability to overwrite reports with same name with power bi desktop file, even if the original report was created in powerbi.com

    I can't change the data source in powerbi.com created reports, but I can in power bi desktop. I'd like to simply overwrite those reports with power bi desktop file of the same name (as an option).

  8. Ability to see Power BI an as EffectiveUser in Power BI Desktop from Tabular Model

    When editing a tabular model you have the option to analyze in excel and specify the user you want to be to verify roles are working correctly, or you can specify it in the connection string with EffectiveUser. There doesn't seem to be a way to do that in Power BI Desktop.

    Since many people are using Postgresql as data source it would be cool add Postgresql as data source for Power BI dataset.

  10. I would want to use Power BI as a operational dashboard/testtool

    In warehouse and production logistics we can always optimize the customers situation by making little changes. I use Excel to visualize them as an animation (power pivots and 3d Maps). Current Dashboards just show scores and I want to show losses (where are we loosing money). In Excel we can show in time what happens and where. The problem is always that the customer is not able to use these models themselves because they are to complex and they never have the right excel version. Simple sample: in a warehouse we have a start point and an end point and…

  12. Power BI prerequisities are missing

    Prerequisite for this tool is missing (like: Windows 7 and higher, 64 bit OS, .NET 4.62 and higher, I7 and 64GB RAM and more). What is wrong when nothing from Power BI is being able to start after regular successful install?

  14. Add data slicer toggles to Bar and Line charts

    Add a capability to current bar and line charts that will allow you to use buttons to toggle between two types of data that would be helpful to toggle between. Perhaps items completed and cost expended over time would be a good one to look at individually and possibly together, but toggling helps for view. Especially in multiple bars per either toggle.

  18. Enable editing of the font size of the Play axis titles when they display on the chart.

    When a user creates a bubble chart which includes a play axis the titles of the play axis points are displayed on the chart as the "Play" is activated . However the font is comparatively large and is unable to be edited. I would like to be able to edit the font size.

  20. Ability to choose what to download from an Organizational Content Pack

    At the moment, when one "Get" a content pack on the PowerBI service, you need to download every single dashboard on it. It'd be great to be able to select a Content Pack and then choose what dashboard you're interested in.
