  1. Permission option to prevent PowerBI access from BYOD devices, excepted Intune supported business devices

    BI content is often sensitive and should not be accessible from everywhere like BYOD devices

  2. Hook up queries code to source control

    Power Query should have ability to commit to a source control, ei Github or Visual Studio Online. It's very painful to keep a track of the queries and maintain them at the moment

  3. adding colon to large numbers in various visuals

    When displaying thousands or millions, it is hard to read without colons. Please add colons "," i.e. 1,234,465 to visuals

  4. Feature parity for the Power BI web and desktop apps.

    The desktop and web apps look identical at first glance but they offer different features. It would be better to either differentiate the two more clearly from a branding POV or have the web app only offer a subset of the desktop app (assuming the desktop app is supposed to offer the most advanced functionality).

  5. Build new content pack merging data from other content packs

    We need the ability to build and publish a new content pack which merges data from other content packs.

    Many business process require data from multiple data sources. We want to build content packs which takes the data from multiple content pack and ties them together and builds reports off the new data model containing and linking data from all the content packs.

  6. Image Slicer In Desktop App.

    It would be awesome if there was a way to have an image slicer visualization capability in the Desktop App. (like PowerView's image slicer)

  7. Highlighting only suitable charts based on fields chosen

    We have lot of charts in the right hand pane. Based on some intelligence highlighting of fewer charts helps users a lot

  8. Version for Kindle

    I would like to view Power BI on my Kindle, but you can only get apps through the Amazon marketplace unless you hack the system.

    Can you publish this on Amazon?

  9. Scrollbar on ipad

    On ipad version, remove scrollbar and enable regular fingerscroll. Annoying to use the scrollbar on an touchenabled device.

  10. Add the Ability to View and Repoint Source-to-Report Connections

    Add the Ability to View and Repoint Source-to-Report Connections

    Content packs may use the same source, report sources may change, etc.

    Please add the ability to identify and modify source-to-report connections. This will greatly reduce UI clutter, user confusion, rework and maintenance issues.

  11. Label format for target and max value differ

    The data label format on Gauge control for the actual and target values (e.g. 2.5M) differs from the maximum value (e.g. 25000000). Make them all the same.

  14. Hide columns or tables from a SQL Direct Connect data source

    When using Azure SQL Direct Connect, it would be awesome if some tables or columns could be hidden. Databases have foreign key values that means nothing for a dashboard and just clutters up the fields available.

  15. Make the title or sub-title fields assignable

    For example in multi-row cards having an assignable title looks better on the dashboard.

  20. Design Best Practices Analyzer

    A great design tool is still only as good as the designer. Fortunately the industry has well established design best practices for charts/reports/dashboards (e.g. Stephen Few, Edward Tufte). A Design Best Practices Analyzer could examine a design recommend changes to improve its utility and readability. For example: are colors used to represent categories consistently across charts? Are grid lines used to support value comparison? Is the use of ineffective visualizations (e.g. pie charts) minimized. Are quantitative scales present for appropriate axes? Do scales start at zero for bar charts? etc.
