What about adding input fields to the dashboard widgets. Kind of like the text field but it is enabled for user input. This input field can be used in new column and new measure fields so that once the dashboard is set up the user can easily (without filtering) explore the data by entering different values such as if you had an input box for unit price. Then if you change it all the charts of total sales, revenue, etc. Will update to reflect what would happen if you increase the price by 10%. This will enable people to quickly and easily interrogate the data

Hi everyone. This is something we'd like to get to in the future but don't have any plans for at the moment.

This an a variety of other data entry options are already available in the Acterys (https://www.acterys.com) visuals: https://appsource.microsoft.com/en-us/?search=acterys

This would be a very useful feature. Current What-If Analysis has some serious limitations (i.e. cannot enter any number, you need to pre-define maximum and minimum range, plus at some point, it is losing its accuracy and is rounding the numbers). Also, input fields could accept non-numeric fields, which will also be useful for the analysis/filters. Image having a possibility to include user's input in a measure - a dream come true!

A basic feature for Reporting Services among other tools, and they don´t have any idea of implementation. What a shame.

how is this different than the whatif-parameters feature already in PBI?

I was just looking at how to implement this feature like paginated reports, it's very disappointing that it is not available. Some of our PowerBI reports would be much simpler if, we could guarantee that we were only looking at the required data across generally unrelated fact tables. Instead of trying to make them fit into a difficult schema.
this would be better if the user were prompted, this is how we've organised a lot of paginated reports and makes it very easy to manage tablixs, when you can guarantee that you are only concerned with the right data.

Further more the parameter use seems to want to apply to the dataset in powerbi Services. this is probably not the expected outcome for alot of people wanting a prompt as PERSON A will want a different set of data to PERSON B.

In saying that, parameters for modifyng locations and servers is very useful. but maybe what people are asking for here is the difference between a variable and a parameter, but you also want a variable to influence a parameter and an import/direct query just like paginated reports. I would love to be able to write a direct query like select * from table where date > @userdate.

Where a report is created, that requires additional input and action to complete tasks, a way to comment of status within the report view associated to the item being reported on would improve the service, without having to go back to the source data. If this were the case, then primary solution would be to use source data and ignore powerbi.

need user input prompt in report , this is basic requirement.

P

where are prompts in Power BI?

backlog for 2 years. Come on.

Not being able to have user inputs is the primary PowerBI that has kept me using Excel and PowerQuery.
