much appreciated, voted!
just brainstorming, having field parameters that work as field aliases, ex: defining a field what-if parameter alias called "Analyze Column" with a default field name, this appear as a draggable field for any visual, then be able to connect a slicer to this field and choose what model fields should be listed (type, table, wildcard,etc)
then when changing the slicer, the alias will change to that field, and all visuals update accordingly without touching the visual in any way
can be used for changing measures or fields, or even fields multi selection (ex: tables).

We recently announced the ability to schedule PDF attachments for Paginated Reports in Power BI (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/e-mail-subscriptions-for-paginated-reports-is-now-available/).
We’re planning to have this ability for Power BI reports as well, but it will take time to put that feature in place.
For folks asking about the ability to print/export the entire table of data to PDF or other format, we’ll be announcing shortly the ability to publish paginated reports using Power BI datasets, which would allow folks to create simple paginated report tables to use for this scenario, as it’s not currently possible to do this with Power BI reports natively at this time.
Hi everyone! To give you an update here, we’ve begun work on this feature!
The first step will be bringing icon sets as a conditional formatting option. You’ll be able to set rules and icons, very similar to what you can do in Excel today. We want to get this out to you quickly, so it’ll be available in table and matrix visuals only to begin with.
Based on the comments on this thread, we’re focusing on the indicators first and looking for feedback on how soon after we need to follow with model-based KPIs. Please keep letting us know in the comments if you need model support for this too!
Thanks for your patience and for engaging and voting!
We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.
At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.
You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh
We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!
maybe a cool mode of using this would be a new section available for most charts, like the new tooltip added recently (all visuals benefitted) We could drag& drop fields on the new area, and it would create multiple chart based on that field. Also adjust series options (global, per chart) ,etc.
One of the two last features I really do miss from PowerView, slicer search & multiple charts.
Hi everyone. There are some really interesting ideas in this thread, thanks for your vocal support about it! We’ll consider it for the future along with other suggestions and plans. Thanks!
Enabling Q&A work in Power BI connecting to on prem SQL AS is under review
You’re right, Ken – the web is a really great source of data. You can do this from the Designer app today – you’ll find from Web page as a data source there. We are also planning to add this to our site soon!
btw-there's also a sample Chrome extension on a similar scenario,
"...a Chrome extension that can take data inside a web page and send it to Power BI to be analyzed. "
