      • Access On-Premise cube from Excel Online

        We are interested in creating Analytical reports (pivot tables with slicers) with Excel and host in Excel Online against our On-Premise MOLAP and/or Tabular Analysis Services cubes. Looks like to do this with Excel Online, a powerpivot model would need to be in the Excel Workbook. We'd like to create several Analytical reports against the same cube On-Premise (or access a common Power BI dataset).

        Today we have Analysis services MOLAP and Tabular models hooked to Analytical reports hosted in Sharepoint 2013 On-Premise. Users can slicer/dice and drilldown.

        We are looking for this same functionality in Excel Online. Many of…

        • Refresh PowerPivot Data in O365 Excel from External Source

          It is frustrating to me that external data refresh is supported in Excel Services in SharePoint but is not supported in Office 365. It is frustrating that to work with any external data you must open the workbook in the desktop client.

            info needed  ·  Anonymous responded

            Did you know that you can actually refresh workbooks in Office 365 when you publish them on PowerBI? Try it out at www.powerbi.com

            Is that what you were looking for?

            If you have specific external sources that you are missing, please provide more specific information

          • I'd love to have a median function directly in pivot tables/charts...

            i.e. change value field settings from "Sum of xxx" to "Median of xxx" where count, min, max, average, etc. already exist. It's possible to do via cubset/cubevalue and MDX but it surely must be easy to implement directly.

            • Pivot

              It would be great if PivotTable is also included online especially if you have things to modify in the table.

              • calendar order

                Great that you have automatic date group in excel 2016, but it is calendar ordered. While it can be the default, there should be functionality to allow user to modify. Not everyone has the same fiscal quarters and year ends.

                • Powerpivot Slicers for Excel Online

                  • Require Pivot, Conditional formatting.

                    Pivot, conditional formatting are required. Filter requires a lot of time, it should reduce. Reduce time delay
