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!
I have a slicer which I want to default to the user's name, with the slicer field being a list of other user's names, so it would be helpful if the slicer's default could be set via the value of a measure.
This month we added the ability to format text fields based off a numeric field: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#conditionalFormatting
We also are planning on adding a feature that will let you format your text based on comparisons. I’ll update this idea based on our progress on that feature.
I am surprised conditional formatting only seems to apply to numbers; it needs to be applicable to text.
Also, whilst it does apply for numbers it doesn't seem to be extendable to total rows which is highly inconvenient too.
Power BI needs to get to a similar level of flexibility with conditional formatting as available in Excel.
This includes extending it to text fields/measure values, to apply to total row values, to be able to format a value in one column based on the value of another.
Also making the Wingdings font available would be good too; eg being able to display a character as a tick or cross (as you can in Excel) to indicate pass/fail, etc.
