Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

Vote on this idea if you want expand/collapse on column headers in the matrix similar to what was shipped for row headers in November (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-november-2018-feature-summary/#expandCollapse).

Option to use either light or dark interface.

New Desktop app update installed an almost white user interface. There is zero contrast which is not good for the eyes. I see where some people have requested a light interface so incorporate an option to select either light or dark theme like in the Office apps.

Thanks for all the feedback! Currently, Power BI does not have a security feature for pages; however, using conditional page navigation and RLS, you can create a custom navigation experience that shows different page options for different roles.

Here's an example of this custom navigation experience: 
 Navigate with a Go button

You can start by hiding all pages on your report except the landing page. Then you will create a column that contains the exact names of the pages in report.
Here's an example: 
Create a table

Using Power BI's row-level security feature, you can define the security roles and rules for this column, and then you can add the column to a single-select slicer.
The slicer will only show values in the column based on the security roles and rules that you've applied to this column.
Navigate slicer

Next, you can create a page navigation button and click the fx button to conditionally format the destination based on the column: 
Page navigation button
 
Now the button can navigate the user to the selected page:
Navigate with a Go button

Sparkline

Can we add sparkline support to tables and matrix? Native Excel PivotTable supports it. http://www.tips-for-excel.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Picture117.png

Measure Management & DAX Editor

Anyone who uses PowerBI long enough has had a PBIX with 50-60 measures and it has become time consuming and tedious to mantain. In Excel you can do a quick find/replace to edit several formulas - in PowerBI you need to select each one individually. An "excel-like" interface for editing measures w...

We've been leaning on the community tools like Tabular Editor, DAX Studio, BISM Normalizer, to provide high-end DAX editing capabilities. We don't have any short-term plans to add more DAX management tools to the product, but we'll be looking at ways to better integrate those tools.

Allow Table and Matrix Data Exports to Match PowerBI Visual

I have volumes of information to share with my teams that is best presented in tables and matrices. It would be a huge improvement if they were able to export the data from the visualizations and have the formatting in Excel match the formatting created within PowerBI. This would be especia...

Conditional formatted measures using SWITCH

A current limitation in Power BI SWITCH measures (and all Power Pivot actually) is that a SWITCH measure must have a single format. It is currently not possible to conditionally format the measure result based on any criteria - it is one single format only. There are valid use cases where you m...

From the comments and scenarios everyone's describing, the problem is really that you need a way to allow end-users to change which measure is displayed in a visual on the fly. We have upcoming plans for a dyanmic measures and dimensions feature; however, we do not have timeline to share at this time.

In the interim, the FORMAT function might help, as long as you're showing the results in text rather than a chart. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/format-function-dax has details on how to use that. The expression-based formatting feature that we've started work on may help to a certain extent, but that's really designed to change a visual's properties rather than the data type or format. We'll look into extending that work to support this scenario as well. We're moving this to Backlog status - our core plan is to build ways that end-users can change the dimensions or measures that are visible in a chart on the fly. They'll be able to explore much more freely rather than relying on the author to have set up complex expressions to control what's available. We'll update with more details as they're available.

Thanks for everyone's votes and comments. This is a feature on our backlog; however we cannot share a timeline at the moment.

It looks like many of the requests will be addressed by the new 'Sticky filters' capability. Now when you log out of Power BI and come back to a report, the same items will be selected as when you left. For those who're looking to have a 'last month' selection, the relative date slicer might help. Those with comments about currencies where having multiple selected makes the report meaningless - the report will load with whatever selection the author saved, so if you save it with one currency selected your users will see that by default. If there are scenarios that these features don't address, please let us know in your comments - if you are really specific it'll help us build the feature to work just the way you want! Thanks again!

This month we added the ability to format text fields based off a numeric field: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#conditionalFormatting We also are planning on adding a feature that will let you format your text based on comparisons.
