      Would be useful, otherwise I have to pass in this value as a parameter

        Essential to be able to do this. In our case we use a parameter to accept a user login which is used in the query

          We absolutely need this! Our data sources are paged, and functions are the only workable way of getting data

            I'm currently struggling with this; would be really nice to make it easier, either by building it right in (difficult?) or at least providing some "scaffolding". Diving into R brings both enormous new possibilities but also a steep learning curve

              We’re actively working on adding IntelliSense support for M authoring in the Advanced Query Editor, Formula Bar and Custom Column dialog. Expect to see these capabilities in one of our next few monthly updates, hopefully before the end of 2016. : )

              Needs to be at least as good as the DAX / R-script support. Admittedly, constrained by needing to be compatible with script generation, but some decent IntelliSense is basic, especially as many users may not have the deep experience needed to use Power query properly
