    Can you also look at how matrices handle additional row columns that are not part of the matrix cols. these don’t seem to be retained correctly when changing them (adding or re ordering) you can also only have the, on the left and alternating row colours don’t seem to work correctly

    The ability to add annotations/narratives to visuals when certain slicer sets are selected or levels are shown on the visual as part of bookmarks or as part of user interactions would be very useful. An example would be looking at sales across the year and noting an uptick in the 3rd quarter, when you drill into the third quarter noting that the uptick was because of a new product category and this has to be stripped out to see the underlying trends. The ability to then add annotations when regions are added or drilled into to reflect which regions were impacted by internal business outages for example. Having these narratives added to bookmarks would enable more effective storytelling and would also make them easier to discover and reproduce (users tend to find something then want to go discuss it with someone so need to find it again) some method of displaying these on screen is of course critical.

    We also need this for the SSRS version, the ability to control this at either report / folder or role level would be useful, so some reports/users would be able to and others wouldn't.

    The ability to do a Gantt at HOUR or HH:MM level would be shockingly useful

    Yes, the ability to do table based extract on PDF files just as you do with Web pages would be invaluable. So many documents are produced as PDF files with dataset embedded in them. SAP seems to use PDF outputted paginated reports as its default output.

    Being able to unravel the meta data and data sources used in a PBIX so it can be promoted to a "supported dataset" would be really useful

    Wanted to post an update to one of the pieces called out for this item – In a future update for the product, we’re planning to do work to introduce support for ADFS/AAD in Power BI Report Server, and at the same time do work to enable your app to override user authentication in a secure way.

    Allow for reports to be embedded in a similar manner to powerbi.com using an on premise version of PBI Report Server.

    Lets be honest just fixing the mess that is the drill through in SSAS MD right now would be a major step in the right direction. if judicious use of ASSP can fix the worst of the fallout why can't this just be baked into the product at a a minimum.
