Thanks everyone for your feedback. We’ve started to explore various options to increase this limit. Stay tuned for updates.
Thank you all for the feedback since our last update. We’re working on building a new navigation experience to allow authors to customize a folder-like structure for all the contents within Power BI Apps. Stay tuned!
We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.
At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.
You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh
We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!
Thanks for all the feedback on this! We are definitely planning on adding Incremental refresh to Pro. Do know though that it is a fair amount of work, so it may be a bit before we can give you a more firm timeline.
In the meantime, keep voting so you’re notified when we do have more information to share!
Thanks for the feedback and your vocal support about it! This is under discussion, so please keep voting this up and providing the feedback/examples of why this is so important to you and your organization.
This is on our roadmap but we don’t have a specific timeline to share at this point. We’ll update this when we have more details!
This is in our backlog. Stay tuned for more updates!
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!
The issue is that the date slicer visual is stuck at the selection when PBI Desktop file is published to PBI Service.
For example if I have a date slicer selected at 4/1/2019 when my PBI file is published. I set the date slicer filter to relative date to show last 2 days including today. I also set the report on a daily refresh schedule.
On 4/3/2019 the refreshed report displays blank values because the date slicer selection is still stuck on 4/1/2019 when PBI Desktop was published.
The date slicer selection will only change if I republish PBI report with a new date selected on the PBI Desktop.
"Sticky Filters"and "Relative date" filter do not address this issue. I am looking for
an option to set the date slicer default value to a calculated measure in the visualization option so that when the report refreshes in PBI Service, the selected date slicer value is updated to the latest value from the measure.
We run into a common situation that someone left the company and PowerBI assets (data, report, dashboard) is only accessible under that person's user account. Definitely a need to have the ability to transfer the whole account to another user.

Hi everyone. There are some really interesting ideas in this thread, thanks for your vocal support about it! We’ll consider it for the future along with other suggestions and plans. Thanks!
There are a number of suggestion spread around related to Marco's idea. If the other suggestions are consolidated into this one, it will be over 2000 votes. PowerBI desktop becomes mostly a sink hole. Data can only be extracted manually (from reports) for further data processing. If PowerBI desktop has an IO api, PowerBI Desktop can become part of data processing providing data of different granularity and dimension. Instead of creating multiple PBIX files because of different granularity, I could create one PBIX, programmatically extract multiple data sets with different granularity, then feed each data set to PowerQuery for data enrichment or ETL. The current option is to create multiple PBIX file for different level of granularity from the same data sources or adopt a snowflake data model which is confusing to end user and difficult to maintain.
