  4. 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.

  7. Allow measures in color thresholds and automatically generate a legend with color ranges and values

    The thresholds currently accept only constants. It would be a more powerful feature if one could define them with measures. Also, it would be nice that a legend was automatically generated, showing the range of colors and the corresponding values.

  10. Caption Connected to Charts

    In Tableau you have the ability to add a caption that stays connected to the chart / table. This is important to a lot of our data as sourcing is required in a lot of the contracts we have with our research partners. We also have a lot of needs to note things like rain impacting results. The caption feature should be able to be turned on and off but always be connected to the chart. If you use text boxes in the reports those don't travel with the chart when pinned to a dashboard.

  11. Add ability to view changes done to Query

    When changes are done to a query (in Advanced Editor or in UI), it would be nice to undo some steps. Also would be nice to view the history of all changes and revert some changes

  14. Need social features on content packs (org)

    We want the ability for users to have conversations in Power BI on content packs (for example, the user can ask a question on how to use the content pack and the publisher can answer it).

    Another social feature we'd like is rating on content packs. Users can rate them and find highly rated content packs

  16. Report prior to GA upgrade broken as new canvas layout is forced

    Though the Dashboard is working fine but all the old reports fail to show as users have to select 'Go to old canvas view' each time. This user setting is not persistent and they have to repeat each time they visit the reports. Please fix and do consider backward compatibility!

  17. Dataset Refresh History Enhancement

    The refresh history does not show the duration in h, m, s. I can manually calculate the difference by comparing the Start and End dates, but that is a lot of work when I have a long history. I should be able to get this information at a glance to help identify outliers and to understand the average and median values.

  18. On PowerBI create authorization window

    Add authorization window after selection new data sourse from SSAS by users. Now every user can select data source (SSAS Cube), and creating groups is senselessly

  20. A canvas that can be split and have its parts filled with controls

    Dragging the controls provides layout flexibility but different computers displays cause controls to overlay one another in unintended ways. A split canvas could provide scrolls and organize space better.
