    Thanks for your feedback - note that, as a mitigation for this issue, you can enable Hierarchical Navigation from the connector dialog (i.e. From Oracle), which will group the navigator tables by schema. Generally, you won't have 10,000+ items within a single schema.

    Thanks for the feedback - Note that this can be done today based on M formula tweaks. There's a Table.ColumnNames function that you can use on any table and will return a list of column names (sorted by "natural order"). So, to reference "the second column of a table" you could use Table.ColumnNames(yourTable){1}

    For example, this formula removes the second column of the table: = Table.RemoveColumns(yourTable,{Table.ColumnNames(yourTable){1}})

    Thanks for the suggestion - Note that you could achieve this today by adding a custom column with the Query Name (i.e. "Query 1") to each query, before performing the Append operation.

    This should also include the ability to sort by multiple columns (just like in Excel)

    Now that we feel the UX is solid, we are moving this one to planning phase.

    Thanks for the feedback, Jared. This is something that we're tracking and expect to improve in a few months.

    In the meantime, there is a workaround for you which is to create a Blank Query and "type = #shared" in the formula bar. This will list out all available functions and types as a list of records. If you then use "Into Table" in the ribbon, you will be able to use Filter, Sort, etc. as a way of searching for what you want.

    Not the most usable approach, but will get you a long way until we get the real feature in the product. :)
