    A very common scenario is that a centralised IT department controls Office 365 admin including Power BI global admin, but has little interest in Power BI. By comparison workspace admins use Power BI every day and will be much more interested in this feature.

    Every single time I've wanted to use Dataflows, it has broken down on this issue.

    If the data was already in SQL or similar, I wouldn't bother with the palaver of a dataflow. But when the data is in 100 monster CSV files in a SharePoint library that are mostly static/historical, imagine how effective a Dataflow could be.

    It's really frustrating...

    It just looks broken the way it currently works, and always raises questions. I've never seen that presentation before in any other product.

    If given the choice, I would've gladly traded the icons released in July 2019 for this functionality. I imagine it would've also been much less work.

    I cant get the Personal gateway to be recognised. What a mess ...

    I'm stunned this hasn't been fixed years ago.

    I can copy in a query from Power BI Desktop, but typically the whole point is to use the Combine Binaries functionality that generates parameters and a generated function - that doesnt seem to be supported in Dataflows.

    This is an common Connector in Power BI Desktop. Not having it available limits the scenarios where Dataflows can be used.

    By far the most common Function pattern is one generated by building a query on a folder of files. This generates a web of dependent objects including an automatically coded function. It doesnt seem possible to move this to Dataflows, which is really disappointing.

    With the current licensing, I expect Paginated reports / SSRS will slowly drop out of use and become mostly irrelevant, as only a few very large organisations will use it. Smaller orgs will want SaaS solutions, where that component is not offered. Skills and understanding of the tool will decay and competitors will flourish.

    Microsoft are likely falling for the "sunk cost fallacy" - Paginated reports / SSRS has already been built and is a very evolved product, with easy integration to "core" Power BI. Adding it to Pro (or some new intermediate license tier) would immediately fill many functionality gaps in Power BI, increasing the speed of uptake and migration from legacy and competitor solutions into Power BI.

    Another useful feature would be to be able to make some of the column pairs do an "Exact Match" while other column pairs use a "fuzzy match". For example "Exact Match" on ISO Country Code, then "fuzzy match" on Company Name/Address etc.
