Thanks for suggesting, this item is on our backlog.
The relative date slicer (a Preview feature as of June ‘17) gets us close to this with the ’This Month’ or ‘This Year’ settings. That is a dynamic date selection that updates based on the current system date. We plan to add a ‘YTD’/‘MTD’ option to specifically select a range from the start of the month/year up to today, hopefully that’ll address the remaining requirements!
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.
Thanks Derrick! Anyone else think this would be a useful addition? Please add your vote!
At the moment we don’t import custom objects (we have to request specific things through their API) but we could improve this in future.
We could also import custom fields on their standard objects.
Who else would find it useful? Please add your vote if you would!
Great idea! We’d like to add more visualization types in the future, and the votes that this item receives will help us prioritize them.
Hi everyone. With the February release of Power BI Desktop we’ve released a Preview of this feature! You can add multiple fields to the slicer and use expand/collapse to drill through the values in the hierarchy.
We’d love to hear your feedback on it – please add comments to the thread here if there’s other things you’d like us to add.
Thanks again for voting and giving us feedback!
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!
As mentioned before, we’ll still disable refresh if we notice that refresh fails consistently, but this time we’ll send you an email to inform you why we turned off refresh.
We added report page tooltips back in March to support this. You can learn more my blog post here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-march-2018-feature-summary/
It’s currently in preview, but we have plans to add support for table and matrix, and shortly after make the feature generally available. At that point, I’ll close this idea.
