  3. Option to cut off link between the report and a live page or any visual pinned to dashboard

    When I pin a live page to dashboard (or any other visual), It'd be great if the report owner had the option to restrict the user from accessing the underlying report by clicking on the tile.

  4. Customer Gateway

    It would be ultimely useful if it was possible for customers to connect to our PowerBI reports via a Custom URL.

    We produce reports for customers and it would be brilliant if we could send a customer a URL that they could then go and view a report customized to their company.

    Thanks

  8. Add Board Column when integrating with TFS

    I am integrating with TFS to get useful information about our development process, I got a lot of information but I cannot get the information about Board Columns in TFS or any other custom field we added to TFS. It would be great to add the custom information the user is creating in TFS.

  9. Hire Inside Opportunity "Executives" that will do their job

    Groundbreaking idea!
    Your sales team should actually respond to emails from existing customers who are trying to grow/scale their solution.

  10. Reverse Filtering

    Using one slicer, you could make two tables where one was showing the results in the selection from the filter and the other is showing what's not included in the selection.
    To make it even better you could use choose to use this on any slicer- and the default visualisation would have two tables. But you could also filter these tables normally with other slicers at the same time!

  12. create and save own color scheme

    In our business we have a specific color scheme that all of our reports have to adhere to, it would be REALLY nice to do this! ANY color scheme would be nice, the generic ones are AWFUL, did a blind mule choose them!

  14. Keep Unique Rows Feature Like In The Power Pivot Data Model

    Currently there is no way to prevent grouping by dimensions of the same name. For example, when mapping population by county, every Washington county is summarized into one value and that same value is placed in each state that has a Washington county.

    Similarly, when Bill Adams, Joe Adams and Susan Adams are put on a chart or table using the LastName field, all Adams are combined into one value.

    The Power Pivot data model can keep each Washington or Adams separate using the Keep Unique Rows feature.

    This feature needs to be available in Power BI Desktop.

  15. Legend labels limited to show only displayed data on a chart

    Currently the legend is showing all categories/series that the chart is supposed to display. There should be the option for the legend to show only what is available/displayed on the chart. In a case with multiple series added on a graphpaired with 1 or more slicers, we might want to show less on the legend to make it easier to read.

  16. DirectQuery Caching for PowerBI Embed w/ RLS

    The performance of DirectQuery with measures particularly needs serious addressing if you want to enable this to be used for complex apps. It would be ideal if we can specify a schedule cache that can be stored in Azure Storage and used as a datasource for PowerBI embedded.

    An example would be to cache 30 days worth of data and refresh this data every 24 hours, or 3 times a day. That way we get the performance of an import with the flexibility of DirectQuery

  18. Create a Streaming Analytics Dataset

    I'd like to create a new Streaming Analytics Dataset where I can define the tables and their columns with data types. Then have the ability to use the Query Editor to manipulate those columns making new columns and/or measures.

    So the idea would be I create a new streaming analytics job in Auzre and point it to PowerBI and it would allow me to select this already created dataset.

    As data flows into the dataset PowerBI would apply all the transformation steps to the data as it enters the system.

    This would allow me to control the data types, cleansing…
