Absolutely agree!!! Power BI has to have this capability.
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.
Hi everyone! To give you an update here, we’ve begun work on this feature!
The first step will be bringing icon sets as a conditional formatting option. You’ll be able to set rules and icons, very similar to what you can do in Excel today. We want to get this out to you quickly, so it’ll be available in table and matrix visuals only to begin with.
Based on the comments on this thread, we’re focusing on the indicators first and looking for feedback on how soon after we need to follow with model-based KPIs. Please keep letting us know in the comments if you need model support for this too!
Thanks for your patience and for engaging and voting!
Ideally the published dashboard should allow the users to refresh the dashboard using new input parameter values or variable values, e.g., the users should be able to enter Calendar Year Month with default value, say, Current Year Month "201809" while executing data refresh using Power BI online.
The views in the database should be able to use the new input parameter values to calculate or filter before returning the result dataset.
This should support both SAP HANA connection and SQL Server connection.
Please help add this feature in ASAP!!!
We're in the process of evaluating various options to replace our legacy self-service and data visualization solution used by both IT and business.
We have some many views with both Input Parameters and Variables defined in the enterprise data warehouse. We urgently need Power BI to enables our users to change the values of input parameters while refreshing the data on Power BI service. This is a must-have feature!!!
Thanks a lot!
IT's hard to believe this is still open. Please fix this asap.
My last company first time tried Power BI in 2015. Now we're evaluating visualization tool for the new company and I just cannot believe this basic functionality is still not there. Please add the "export multiple page storyboard in PDF format" as early as possible!!!!!
I believe many organizations need this connectivity. We are one of them, who are evaluating Power BI as the frontend solution to our existing BI architecture. It's highly unlikely we can make huge changes to the BI backend which relies on HANA and BW.
