    Agreed. When Field Formatting\Alignment is anything but Right the Total row doesn't line up and looks out of place.

    I've arranged our Report Server to have main folders for different organizations we support. They all have different branding but since Power BI Report Server only has 1 brand setting, none of our organizations can has their specific logo or colours.

    Such a basic request from our users but it requires a ton of work-around code!

    Power BI put on Blast by SQL Server Central :)

    "... not considering the need to provide some text format for the reports, I can't understand why they didn't learn from the Integration Services team and realize that binary versions of programmable items don't make sense. We need a format that can be easily versioned, and maybe more importantly, stored in a VCS and diff'd in a way humans can understand.

    When building a format for storing code, please consider the need to work in a team and version the changes made. This means any format should not be a) binary and b) difficult to decode. Separate visual elements from logical elements and ensure a text version of this can be examined by developers. You can use XML, JSON, YAML, or any other text based format, but choose something that makes sense. Even if you add your own extension, ensure that standard tools that work with code can use this.

    I do know the PBIX format is a ZIP file, but zip files don't easily integrate with a VCS. We could use hooks to extract/rebuild out files on commit/checkout, but that's cumbersome and silly. I'd rather that the PBIX were a folder with the files inside. Users, including my Mom, can zip a folder and email that if needed. To me, that would have been a better structure from the beginning.

    Microsoft is supposed to be a company providing platforms that we build upon and use in our work. The decisions for the Power BI service seem to be poorly thought through with that in mind. I'd urge them to create a baseline set of rules for future products that consider DevOps, teams, and the need to track code."
