Thanks for the idea, Vicenc! We’ll consider it for the future, please add your votes it you agree!
Not sure if this is the best place to put this comment, here goes any way :-)
Would it be possible to use DAX expressions in filters? I was trying something this morning which would automate a report based on time values.
Example l want to only show incidents for the current year on a page on a report eg Year = 2015. What l would like to have done is something like =YEAR(TODAY()).
Which if l could use DAX in a filter expression that is pretty awesome :-)
We recently released the ability to export data from tiles and visuals to a CSV file. This may work for y’all as a workaround until we add the ability to directly copy and paste the visual or data. You can read more about it here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/powerbi/archive/2016/01/06/power-bi-service-update-0106.aspx#exportTile. Be sure to let us know what you think about the feature!
Distributing datasets is possible in the PBI service today via the following steps:
1) As the sharer, go to the gear > “Create Content Pack” > add the dataset you’d like to share – optionally, you may also choose to add additional datasets, report, or dashboards
2) As the recipient, go to Get Data > “My Organization” and select the content pack created in step 1
3) Click on the “…” in the dataset that is added to your workspace, and click “Make a copy”
The recipient can then start creating reports based on the new dataset.
Does this meet your needs? Please let us know via comments or e-mail.

We plan on bringing hierarchy support to the core visual slicers in Power BI. It’s in the works now!
Whilst trying relate why people should be excited about Power BI. I wanted show the difference between three countries next to each other. If l used SSRS l could add a custom colour, very simple very easy. Yet in Power BI l was stuck with the certain default palettes, the graphs just looked ugly :-(
A simple but very important requirement.
Mapping in reporting is becoming increasing more import. Yet still ignored by SSRS. Whilst Power Bi goes a long way to addressing "some" of the issues it does not address others.
Eg SSRS can apply custom shapes to a map. Cannot do that in Power BI, Power BI does play nice with USA states but not, areas here in the UK!!
Power BI can zoom in and out using the mouse wheel, cannot do in SSRS
SSRS has fantastic tooltips with a powerful scripting language support, Power BI has nothing.....
In SSRS its possible to apply colours to maps based on parameters, not sure the same can be done in Power BI with such ease
We’re working on URL parameters for Paginated Reports in Power BI that would enable this scenario for users, and expect it to land soon. We will update the status here once it is released publicly. Thanks!
