Yes, absolutely needed for showing Year -> Quarter -> Month.
We’re actively reviewing this functionality to see if this limit could be lifted for Power BI Report Server. We’ll keep you up to date on our plans, and thanks for your feedback to date!
It would be nice if Microsoft can identify little things like these and implement first. Sometimes the most powerful way of looking at data is via table and matrix visuals so if these 2 visuals can be nailed first it would be great.
Here are few things I'd love to see:-
1. Freeze columns
2. Conditional Icon sets
4. Filters within table columns
5. Explicit formatting control for headers, rows, totals.
6. Conditional formatting of text fields based on their own value
7. +/- to expand collapse (this is coming)
This is single most important feature that is preventing people from fully using our Power BI Reports. First thing everyone asks for is .. how can I export because Excel gives them that easily ability to filter columns which are for a lot of cases a key way to analyze data.
Dropdown slicers are great but only so many one can add and they take up a whole lot of space too. Please implement this!
As another user commented, it is quite embarrassing to tell users that they should click on each item to select. Please add ASAP.
Can you send me email so i can connect w/ you w the team?
The current URL functionality is only useful for table visuals since one needs to dedicated a column for the URL/Link. In a matrix view it would be much better if the value itself could be hyperlink.
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!
@Will Thompson - Above described features will not help in the use case I am looking for.
In my case, I have slicers on certain values e.g. financial snapshots, and I need a certain snapshot to be defaulted based on what part of the year we are in. The snapshot to show can be identified based on another column within the Snapshots tables.
So what I need is functionality that will enable me to do something like "select snapshot that has [Another ColumnValue] = 1" in the slicer.
Or allow adding text to a shape. So frustrating when we have something so close yet so far.
