How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Better Support for Analysis Services Tabular

It's about time to improve support for SSAS Tabular:
1. Auto-generate DAX
2. Avoid splitting a table into a "measure group" and "dimension". See how PBI Desktop handles metadata.
3. Carry over data types so that users can create reports, such as show me invoices where Due Date is greater than ... Currently, all dimension table fields map to Text.
4. Many customers have expressed interest to connect Excel tables directly to Tabular, bypassing Pivot Table, so they can use the column dropdowns and other Excel goodness.
5. Support descriptions as tooltips when the user hovers on a field in the Field List.
