It'd be great to be able to freeze a left hand column in a table so users can scroll and keep track of what row they're looking at

RE: freeze column in a table chart

It will be a good feature to have. It can help the business users to read the data available and understand where they are.

It will be a nice feature like we freeze columns for Excel

RE: freeze column in a table chart

definitely missed,
I have 30 plus columns and Power BI does lend itself well to scrolling left and right, scrollbar is quite thin, disappears and is not well contrasted so quite a mission.

I believe the option is to use MATRIX and keep MATRIX's style as CONDENSED. That way 1st column can be freezed.
