Show column data profile statistics in header

Add a column data profile histogram in the data view for every column in Power BI Desktop. This handy feature exists in Power Query (sometimes only on sampled data). Add this feature to Power BI Desktop as well, please.

Visibilty (Hide an Item)

Develop an item formatting property which allows to set the visibility of a report item when you want to conditionally hide the item based on a report parameter or some other expression that you specify (also DAX expressions). You can develop this incrementally starting from visuals, then text b...

Calculated measures when live connected to MDX cubes

In May 2017 Power BI Desktop started supporting creation of DAX measures when working in live connect mode to an external SSAS model: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-feature-summary/ Vote on this idea if you want support for calculated measures against multidimensi...

Security - Ability to maintain source security for reports published on BI Sites

The general requirement is that visualizations (Power View, SSRS etc...) must not circumvent existing policies, or introduce yet another set of security policies on top of those already implemented at the source. * For example, a visualization of sales data needs to reflect the policy that acc...

Hey all! We've continued to make progress here, so I wanted to update this thread with our current capabilities for maintaining security on dashboards/reports. As always, all of this information can be found in our Row-Level Security (RLS)documentation: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-admin-rls/ > If you have set up RLS in Analysis Services, Power BI will send the signed-in user's credentials to Analysis Services, and respect the RLS rules set up on the on-premises model. > Separately, you can set up RLS in Power BI for data sources that you import or connect to via DirectQuery. This process starts in PBI Desktop, where you define roles, and write DAX to constrain what data these roles can see. As part of this process, can you use the UserPrincipalName () DAX function to get the current signed in user's UPN (e.g. joe@contoso.com). Then, once you publish to service, you can assign users to these roles. Does the above meet your requirements? Please let us know via comments or e-mail. Those of you who requested that the identity of the signed in Power BI user be pass through to Azure SQL, SQL DB, DWH, etc.: we hear you - that is under consideration. Thanks, -Sirui

Add the axis interval in the charts

Now we start and end point in the axis, It would be great if we have Interval between the start and End value For eg: 0 is my start and 100 is my End means , I explicitly what the interval is 9, so that I can see my axis drawn like 0,9,18,27...99.

Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

It would be great if Grand Totals on a Matrix or Table would add up correctly to the sum of the rows when you include MEASURES in the visual. Currently the total on a measure consists of the measure function itself, instead of the sum of the rows above. PLEASE give us the option to toggle totals ...

Moving this idea to "under review" to mark that discussions are underway. For full transparency, we have started working on DAX calculations at the visual level. That feature will make changes that will serve as building blocks for other features, including but not limited to the one discussed in this idea: providing more flexibility for influencing what is shown on the total: the visual total, the "DAX" total, or another expression altogether.

Hence, the delivery of this Idea will be dependent on the DAX-calculations-on-a-visual feature.

2022 Release Wave 2
March 2022 Update: We are looking into this

We recently released the ability to export data from tiles and visuals to a CSV file. This may work for y'all as a workaround until we add the ability to directly copy and paste the visual or data. You can read more about it here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/powerbi/archive/2016/01/06/power-bi-service-update-0106.aspx#exportTile. Be sure to let us know what you think about the feature!

DAX Query Language Visual

I see big value in creating a visual that can display the results of a DAX query. One way this could be deployed is a follows. * Add the new visual to the report canvas * Write a DAX query that returns a table (of course) and add this to the visual * The visual would respect any cross filtering...

At the moment we don't have any plans to implement this. It sounds like it's mostly useful for learning/training? If there are other 'production' scenarios that you think it'd be useful, where a regular table/matrix wouldn't work, please let us know in the comments!
