I'd like to see something like this too. Say I have a sales table showing customers and products. I'd like to right click on a customer and select 'Filter to this record' or something similar. Then I'd see this customers product. In a similar way I could select a product and filter to see only customers who has purchased the product. I know this is possible with the current filtering options but this would make the process far simpler to the user.
In sure that the reason this idea isn't higher in the hot idea list is that it's not known as a single named technique. Or maybe it is and just don't know. Either way, it would be great and builds on the existing filtering options I believe.
Damn, I needed this today too.
I think I can DAX it in my case, or just easier to create a new column but where there's a 'starts with' I expected to see an 'ends with' too.
Another update on this item – users now have the ability to set up scheduled subscriptions with paginated reports and 6 different formats, along with parameters per subscription to allow further personalization. There is also now the ability to create paginated reports against any Power BI dataset in the service, and we’re planning to add drillthrough from Power BI to Paginated Reports in the short term.
We still have plans to support e-mail attachments for Power BI reports as well in the coming months, and we’ll share more specifics once we get closer to starting that work.
Sounds like a good feature to me. I was asked about printing a report from the desktop in a meeting today.
Thanks for your feedback on this issue – while we’d like to enable this, there is currently no timetable around doing so. There is the option as a workaround the create a paginated view as a drillthrough of the visual and have a formatted version you can export to Excel, but understand this isn’t a solution everyone can take advantage of currently.
Please consider adding this. Possibly easier to implement than many other ideas on there and would be a massive improvement to the product.
I've just discovered that this is problem too. This means that if one of our clients wants Power BI we have to sell them at least 2 pro licenses. One for me to design and share the report, the others for them to view it. :(
Please add this. I've just realised how much a pain in the ass it is to delete multiple column/fields. Fortunately I can create SQL views to format the data before it reaches Power BI but I would rather have done it all in one place really.
I've just come up against this. I've pinned a visual to a dashboard, made a change to the visual on a report, and the dashboard hasn't updated to reflect the change. My option is to re-pin the visual to the dashboard and delete the old dashboard tile. Then format the dashboard tiles on the dashboard. Can be very time consuming.
