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.

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.

Add Folders To Organize Reports On PowerBI.com

RIght now, on powerbi.com, there is no ability to organize reports, dashboards, etc into folders. If you have a lot of content or users, this gets messy quickly. Please add the ability to organize into folders (and secure those folders separately)

Since we do not have a targeted release yet, setting the status to 'under review'.

Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

Allow a user to set the default value for a slicer or tile-by value on a page/dashboard, so that when the Power View page is opened for the first time, the default value is selected. eg. If the page has a slicer for Year or Month, allow the user to configure the most recent Year or Month to be se...

We're looking into this request, thanks for everyone's votes and comments. 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!

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. As a few folks have mentioned, the FORMAT function might help in the interim, 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.

Connectivity to Google sheets

Connecting to Excel workbooks in OneDrive is a great first step, but connectivity to Google Sheets should be there too.

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. I'll update this idea based on our progress on that feature.
