Thank you all for the feedback since our last update. We’re working on building a new navigation experience to allow authors to customize a folder-like structure for all the contents within Power BI Apps. Stay tuned!Greg Philps commented
Hierarchies of folders for dashboards, reports, and datasets would provide great benefits (and more self-service) for users by giving them a familiar interface.
We’re doing several improvements to the overall manageability, collaborative authoring, and organization of dashboards/reports. Having a pre-release test environment is a key component of the forward roadmap.
We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.
At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.
You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh
We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!
You might have noticed in the November update of Desktop we added a new modeling view, that includes the ability to set ‘display folders’ for your fields! While it’s in preview, let us know your feedback, and look for it GAing soon!
Another update on this item – users now have the ability to set up scheduled subscriptions with paginated reports and 6 different formats, along with parameters per subscription to allow further personalization. There is also now the ability to create paginated reports against any Power BI dataset in the service, and we’re planning to add drillthrough from Power BI to Paginated Reports in the short term.
We still have plans to support e-mail attachments for Power BI reports as well in the coming months, and we’ll share more specifics once we get closer to starting that work.
Hi there! We’re working on this right now! You’ll see it in a future release!
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.
Thanks for the suggestion, Akash! If other people would find this useful, please keep adding votes to help us prioritize!
Great idea, Michael. I think the key elements of this are the upper and lower control lines and the central average. They’re valuable additions to any chart, not just a funnel plot, so I’ve updated the title to reflect it. Please keep voting if you think this would be helpful!
Great suggestion Trond. If others think this is a good addition, please cast your vote!
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!
Checking with Will Thompson and moving status to backlog
Hey y’all. Thanks for all the feedback! We’ve thought some about multi-column sort, but don’t have a timeline currently to share. Keep voting so you’ll get notified once we start working on it.
