  3. Add the ability to tap into the data collected by the Operations Management Suite (OMS) in Azure

    OMS dashboards are very limiting. But the data collected is very powerful if it can be exported and correlated with other data sources

  5. Improve slicer functionality

    When I insert a slicer, sometimes when I click on an item the scrolling bar shoots back to the top without actually selecting the item. So I cannot filter my report to show specific. Also, sometimes global filters apply to my slicers and other times they do not. It would be nice if global filters worked all of the time. It would also be nice if clicking on another visual filtered the slicer to only include items falling in the category you clicked on. Again, sometimes this works and sometimes it does not.

  7. Bypassing the estimation processing on a merge.

    It would be great if you could bypass the estimation process when joining two tables. Currently you have to wait until the estimation is complete before clicking OK. When you have tables with millions of rows, this can take a several minutes to estimate.

  8. Can you provide option to generate a custom field using Visual studio online data?

    I am using my VSO data to build PowerBI dashboard. In my case, each task has multiple tags. I want to showcase one of the tags as a separate field. Can we provide this functionality?

  14. mix requests on Dynamics CRM for test purpose

    Hi, to be sure to get consistent data against several table, we now need to merge to requests.
    But for big tables such as customers and a custom entity called "transactions", I would rather test my data by telling powerbi to download transactions only when there is already a downloaded Customer. That would allow me to download only 200 customers for test reasons and then get the related records (sur as transaction or opportunities ...). What do you think ?

  16. We have a request function for Power BI Designer.

    We have a request function for Power BI Designer

    Request function: VBA Automation like Excel VBA

    We would like to edit "pbix file" automatically by PBI Designer.

    For example,
    step1:
    We would make "foo.pbix" by PowerBI Desingner.
    This "foo.pbix" have filter setting.
    The setting is [storecode='AAA']

    step2:
    Then, We would make "bar.pbix" automatically by PowerBI Desingner as follows.
    ・In the document-open-event method,
    we would like to change the filter like
    [storecode='AAA'] -> [storecode='BBB']
    Also we would like to save this "foo.pbix" as new file "bar.pbix"
    in the document-open-event method.

    Of course, we are not stick to VBA.
    It is OK…

  19. Expand a Record or Table within a column (using Power Query):

    Expand Feature –
    Ability to choose ‘how’ to expand a record or a table within a column (in Power Query) such as the following…
    • Show drop down choice to expand into new rows (as it currently does) OR expand back into the cell as a comma separated value (which shows all readable text, not just a record)

    Scenario –
    I have a SharePoint list with 14 records and a field on a given record contains a list of items that are separated by a comma. When the data is imported into Power Query, the data shows…

  20. Refresh Excels stored in computer

    Using Power Query for ETL against multiple data sources and saved as excel in computer but I'm unable to refresh the updated excel via Power BI. Needing to reload again and rework is not an option.
