    As well as ignoring cross-filters from other visuals, note this currently ignores page-level filters and visual-level filters. So right now it's really a missed opportunity - we can show "dynamic" content, but we cant change the context so the result is actually static.

    I totally agree - I can't think of any use case. I've never come across any use case for having them on and never been asked to re-instate them. I've worked with Power BI every day for 5 years, across hundreds of projects & many organisations.

    It would be brilliant if this could work for web browser report editing as well as in the Report View of Power BI Desktop.

    That would be the "gateway calc" that gets users hooked on DAX, craving for more.

    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...

    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.
