Currently, I can upload an Excel file with Power View reports and the data behind it. This is great, but the file cannot have any version control.

I would need to be able to continue developing my reports through version control and then point Power BI to the updated dataset/report without having to re-upload and create everything from scratch.

This becomes absolutely essential when you consider dev/production environments. We can't expect to provide users with cool new dashboards, then a week later take it down because there is a newer version.

integration with git would be highly valued

would be very useful for our report creators

We are consistently interested in the capacity for version control and the ability to perform diffs on our visualization files so that we may peer review each other's work.

It would be extremely useful to have a Power BI version control purely for the definition of the reports, excluding potential data.

It is not really practical to version control the data at the same time as the code through the complete pbix files

It is disconcerting that Tableau has version control functionality baked into the tool but PBI does not. It is a much-needed feature at an enterprise level.

Still waiting for this fundamental capability.

We use it in an enterprise contest where the version control is quite mandatory.

We miss it greatly.

This currently works for 'proper' version control of .pbit files: https://github.com/kodonnell/powerbi-vcs That said, the UI hasn't been completed and it's not battle tested, so feel free to submit some PRs!

Add version control in Power BI service to allow for easy rollback and recovery.

It would be great to see Microsoft publish a recommended workflow for this.

Like many others, we are currently holding our PBIX files in git as binary files. This gets us close, however there is no way to source control dashboards.

I typically increment version numbers in filenames as I develop on PBI desktop. If I upload my latest report to PBI online, then I have to remove all the existing sheets from my dashboard and pin all the sheets I want from the new report. Would be good if you could point a dashboard at a newer report and pick up all the sheets with the same name.
