  1. Conditional formatting on Gauge.

    I use the arc gauges to measure percentage of on time delivery. when the rate goes under 90% I have to change them all to red manually. It would be great if conditional formatting extended to this visual as well so it can change from green to red automatically

  3. Better integrate SSDT BI in the development process

    Having the features on the servers is fantastic, however it seems the SSDT BI team is working in a different company. Please align better with them, especially the release cycles. Where is their user voice forum ? Where is their roadmap ? BI must be considered as a consolidated effort among the MSFT products.
    It starts with the developer tools and ends with the visualization on the screen.

  5. STOP! Before throwing more random features into SQL BI, lay out strategic guidance

    Reporting Services, Analysis Services, PowerPivot, PowerView, PerformancePoint, Report Builder, Excel Services, Analytic Charts, Datazen... Microsoft's BI toolkit is a mess. Anyone who's starting out fresh could go insane trying to figure out what to use when. Add in Microsoft's tendency to randomly abandon technology and something packaged and stable like Microstrategy or Tableau starts to look like it's worth the money.

    You folks need to put your pencils down, step back, take a deep breath, and FIGURE OUT WHAT THE HECK YOU'RE DOING. Lay out an architecture, roles, and roadmap that can be published for all of us so we…

  9. Add Performance point services capability to Power BI

    Enable Power BI to support analysis like performance point services. so user can slice and dice data graphically and also make drillthrough / custom actions available from the OLAP cube so user can retrieve the raw data from their analysis. Also, give user a opportunity to save the drillthrough query or drillthrough result (raw data) into SQL or in the flat file.

  10. Enhance Deployment options (without Visual Studio)

    Build a powerful deployment eco system where you enable dev and ops to create reusable deployment scripts to deploy the same content to the various systems (like DEV, Test, Prod ...) without having to manually change each and every connection string, authentication and authorization information ... - prefered as Powershell commandlets as this fits into most on-prem installations.

  13. Convert Tabular Models to Multidimensional and reverse

    Since there are already translations between DAX and MDX in both directions I think it should be possible to convert the models to each other with the exception of MDX scripting and DAX expressions. I have converted a MD model to a Tabular manually without any unsolved issues.

  14. Native support for Java application to Analysis Services (JASC - Java Analysis Services Connect)

    We need a native connection to Analysis Services for Java similar to the SQL relational database using JDBC. On the C#, we have ADOMD.NET. We need the equivalent for other enterprise programming languages with Java being the biggest outside C#. Requiring our customer to setup IIS with the data pump dll is an extra support overhead. We also pull a lot more data across the network due to the SOAP request.

    Add real-time dashboards which update continously like http://www.tweetping.net/ or the Twitter CEP demo application of the MTC Signapur. Maybe with a built-in or an easy integration with StreamInsight or Azure Stream Analystics.

  16. Create touchscreen capabilities on MS BI technologies on laptops, tablets, smartphones etc similar to Roambi, Tableau, Qlikview

    Improve functionality of MS BI products on PCs, laptops, tablets, smart-phones etc by integrating with touchscreen capability in a similar way to Roambi, Tableau and Qlikview. Ability to play with BI in such an intuitive way would be awesome.

  20. SSMS 17 Bug: Can't copy from dialog popups: Unsaved documents cannot be cut or copied to the clipboard from the Miscellaneous Files project

    There's a bug in the current 'separate installer' version of SSMS (2016 onwards)

    It doesn't allow copy pasting from some dialog popups. Noticed it in the find & search/replace dialog.

    I use this feature extensively to refactor code/deploy from template files

    Never seen any other windows app that doesn't allow copying/cutting from a textbox

    repro:
    Bring up the search replace dialog (ctrl+h)
    type some random text into the "Find what" text box
    highight it (ctrl+a)
    cut it (ctrl+x)

    result: error message - Unsaved documents cannot be cut or copied to the clipboard from the Miscellaneous Files project. You must save…
