  1. PivotTables created with Power BI using Analyze In Excel should work after publishing to Power BI

    Power BI's Analyze in Excel functionality allows Excel users on the desktop to create reports using PivotTables and cube formulas connected to a published Power BI dataset. However (and this is very hard to explain to customers) these reports only work on the desktop: even though Power BI allows you to publish Excel workbooks to an App Workspace, reports created using Analyze In Excel do not work after they have been published to Power BI because Excel Online does not support connections to Power BI. Please fix this!

    • Excel Online Auto Refresh Azure Analysis Services

      Excel Desktop PowerPivot Report connected to Azure Analysis Services Tabular model refreshing the data works in Excel Desktop.
      However, when you publish this workbook to Power BI workspace (from the workbook's ribbon menu > File > Publish > Publish To Power BI) then you try to refresh the data in Excel Online it doesn't work!!!
      Microsoft should fix this limitation otherwise what's the point of having a refresh capabilities for just Excel Desktop PowerPivot.
      We want our end users to be able to refresh powerpivot reports Online.

        • Allow Online user to edit PivotTable title fields such as Row and Column Labels

          Allowing users to edit Row or Column labels online enables them to be more descriptive when presenting PivotTables. Currently required to "Open in excel" to make a simple edit.

            • Require Pivot, Conditional formatting.

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

                • 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…

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                            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?
