The ability to message all Power BI users from the Power BI service

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.

John

Support creating calculation groups in Power BI Desktop

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.

Thanks.
