  1. Single Data Model for Multiple Reports in PBI Desktop and PBI Report Server

    In Power BI Desktop and Power BI Report Server, I'd like to have multiple reports point to a single data model. Our data models are large and complex, and the underlying data contains millions of rows. I'd like to save the PBI Model as a datasource on PBI Server and use SSAS connection to build multiple reports.
    Currently, the .PBIX file must contain dozens of tabs with multiple views of Enterprise data because the data source is so cumbersome to update.
    Note: we do not and will not be able to use PBI Service for Security reasons.

    • Clear all slicers

      Clear ALL slicers on a page with one click, perhaps an addition to a slicer for a clear all slicers button or perhaps a custom visualization that is a button to press to clear all slicers.

      • Report page tooltip on all objects

        New report page tooltip preview feature in the March update is great.

        Would be nice if we had the option of adding this tooltip to visuals that previously didn't have a tooltip.

        For example, I have a card visual. I'd like users to get one of these mini report pages pop-up when they hover over it but as this visual doesn't have a tooltip it can't be used.

        Would be great if we can do this on other things like shapes and text boxes as well.

                        • I want multiple app spaces from a single workspace.

                          Part of this functionality would include being able to select which reports & content are distributed to App space A, App Space B, etc. all from a single workspace.

                              Like in Tableau it will remember the colour set for a particular column/measure, are there plans for that?
