    Not sure I'd ever need to see all of these at the same time, but some things that would definitely help would be:

    - showing data types in the model view
    - Agree 100% that a new DAX editor window is needed. The current way of entering DAX is (very) poor - it sometimes takes me 4 or 5 clicks just to close out of a DAX window. A separate "pane" that could be moved to another screen, resized as desired, etc. would be a HUGE improvement

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Actually, while we're at it, it would also be nice if the model view:

    4. Showed icons indicating datatype - the same as M. aka "123" for a field that is integer, "1.2" for a decimal fields, etc.
    5. Allow tables to be sorted on datatypes by clicking on one of the (newly added) datatype icons
    6. Show in bold, or a different font or something, every field that has a relationship to another table. Only way to see that how is to hover over the yellow relationship line. Maybe (?) outline the fields with yellow highlight to match the relationship line?
    7. Ability to delete a relationship line by just selecting it and hitting the "delete" key, vs. right mouse clicking and choosing delete. Old model view used to allow this.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I agree 100% with this. If we're moving production / enterprise capabilities to Power BI, we need to be able to handle basic things like a refresh failing. Also IMO refreshes fail way too often for nebulous reasons - more work on making refreshes more robust and better error tracking would be very helpful.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Adding one additional comment - this really needs to be enabled for ALL visuals, not just for matrices. For example, we have definite use cases where it would be nice to drag the "true" measures dimension tile into either X axis or legend areas for many of the various graph types (line charts, bar charts, etc.)

    We'd like exactly the same functionality. In our case only interested in fiscal years / fiscal months - so we'd only need to specify the fiscal year end date (i.e. June 30th) instead of having to worry about weeks.

    We’re looking into this request, thanks for everyone’s votes and comments.

    It looks like many of the requests will be addressed by the new ‘Sticky filters’ capability. Now when you log out of Power BI and come back to a report, the same items will be selected as when you left.

    For those who’re looking to have a ‘last month’ selection, the relative date slicer might help.

    Those with comments about currencies where having multiple selected makes the report meaningless – the report will load with whatever selection the author saved, so if you save it with one currency selected your users will see that by default.

    If there are scenarios that these features don’t address, please let us know in your comments – if you are really specific it’ll help us build the feature to work just the way you want!

    Thanks again!

    Relative date slicers are nice - but they would be better if there was an option to base them off of the dates of the data vs. off of the current date at time report is accessed. For instance, we have a report we refresh weekly on Wednesdays. It would be great if I could set a date filter on "Last 7 days" but have that only refresh when the data does...staying fixed after that until the next load.
