    This makes even more sense now that there is support for Snowflake connections without using an enterprise data gateway.

    It might be helpful to have another set of fields available in the visualization properties to define a list of row/column/measure used for sorting. Even better would be a user-configurable way to define multiple levels of sorting.

    At the time of this comment, there is only security at the workplace scope for Dataflows. It would help to have the ability to secure at the following scopes:

    1) Dataflow (model scope)
    2) Dataflow Entity (table scope)
    3) Entity Column
    4) Entity Row

    With the pace of both Microsoft Office and IT release cycles, I wonder if the existing ODBC connector and the following idea could help provide a quicker time-to-market to serve this need:

    https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/39704425-ODBC-driver-to-connect-to-a-Dataflow

    Even with the potential for a more generic ODBC Dataflows driver, a native connector makes a lot of sense to help keep feature parity in the Power Query codebase in PowerBI Desktop and Excel.

    As our business analysts are becoming more adept at preparing data with Power Query "M" scripts, we are finding that collaborators want to be able to reuse the results in products besides PowerBI Desktop. It would help to have ODBC driver support to allow other analysts the ability to query the dataflow in the tool of their choice. Not all organizations have the ability to configure their own Azure Data Lake Storage or the expertise to expose the content of the Common Data Model in a business analyst friendly way. That could also help to address another idea for allowing Excel to connect to Dataflows until a native connector could be made available within the Office client.

    Snowflake security administrators can assign only one default role to a user account. Per vendor recommendations, members of built-in roles (e.g. SECURITYADMIN, SYSADMIN, and ACCOUNTADMIN) are encouraged to assign a low-privilege default role. Those users must elevate their security token to perform DBA like tasks and will generally have insufficient permissions to read from user-defined content hosted in the Snowflake account. With interactive sessions and other BI tools, those user accounts can issue statements like "USE ROLE mydatabase_db_reader" to change security contexts for BI client purposes. The inability to alter the default role limits some users from being able to access all of the database tables and views that would otherwise be available using other BI tools that support the USE ROLE semantics.

    Jonathan, it might help to clarify if you are looking for support for concurrent/simultaneous edits of the same report in the PowerBI service. Multiple users of the same workspace can progressively edit a report (one at a time), but they cannot edit the same file concurrently. It sounds like you might be advocating for a concurrent authoring experience that mimics using Office 365 documents on SharePoint Online.

    It would be helpful to know if this is technically feasible, particularly when it comes to Snowflake on Azure. There are probably logistical challenges for Snowflake's own VNET/public network endpoints as well as potential challenges around which Azure region hosts the tenant's PowerBI instance vs. Snowflake's Azure region.

    Please add an "Organizational Account" authentication option to the Snowflake connector. It would be very helpful to have the ability to use Azure Active Directory accounts against the Snowflake databases.

    There are times when a standard Excel pivot table makes a bit more sense than the PowerBI table and matrix. With PowerBI hosting 'apps' in SharePoint Online, there is a natural fit for colocating "Analyze in Excel" workbooks for data consumption. The ability to alter the slicer/filter elements of an Excel PivotTable could provide a lower barrier to entry for people to consume PowerBI content if it could be actively filtered in Excel Online.
