If you run a Power BI platform for a lot of users you should be able to send /push notifications to them. We are currently experiencing high fail rates and it would be great to alert all users that we’re busy looking into it.
Support the creation of DAX calculation groups in
Power BI Desktop – otherwise Power BI can only consume calculation groups
created in Analysis Services, whereas it would be very useful to have this
feature in any Power BI model.
Even just a simple text window with a script would be
fine. You can clean up the UI later.
This is episode 106 recorded on June 11th, 2019 at the Microsoft Business Applications Summit where John & Jason talk to Chris Finlan, Senior Program Manager for Power BI at Microsoft, about the recently release features around Paginated Reports in the Power BI Service, Power BI Report Server, and more.
next to impossible to switch between accounts/tenants in the Power BI mobile
client. The user must first log out of the existing account/tenant, and then
establish a connection with the different tenant. This is a multi-multi step
Contrast this with the multi tenant capabilities of the Teams mobile app, or of Outlook, SharePoint etc. We need better account switching in the Power BI mobile app.
current capability we use in Power BI Reports on our Power BI Report Server is
consuming Shared Datasets that are already on the server. We should have a
“Shared Dataset” connector option in Power BI Optimized for Report
Server that helps users identify which Shared Dataset are available on the
server and the parameters(if any) are required to use the shared dataset. This
would be a similar capability that exists in Report Builder when adding shared
This could be a simple UI that ultimately results in an OData source using the PBI REST API. This would simplify adding shared datasets rather than forcing users to under the REST API. Seems like a low overhead improvement that has high potential
