I think it looks like it could be really helpful for some more advanced end users. However, in order to use it really essential that report creators can specify which fields or measures from the report can be used in the personalised visuals area by end users. Otherwise you end up with end users having access to a lot of data that would be irrelevant for them to look at and they won't know what might be relevant or not.
I'm thrilled to have this new feature available to us and have begun experimenting with it. While it's a huge step forward in enabling end users to be able to self-serve some of their ad-hoc reporting requirements, there are a few limitations with the current version that I hope you will address:
Thanks for taking this feedback into consideration. Look forward to forthcoming enhancements to this very cool feature.
Very cool feature! Great for end users.
We have a matrix visual that shows information in a little more detail, for personalistion for this matrix would it possbile to let users move the order of the fields for drilling down?
For example I add produce description into the drill-down but I want it to be 2nd in the drill-down, not last. Just a pain to have to remove all the fields. Being able to move fields up/down would be very handy!
This is just fantastic and one of the reasons why we are planning to move our Self-Service platform to PowerBI!
Its one of the most requested features from our user base - namelly when we apply this to matrix visuals where on the fly users can change the dimensions and measures.
Any clue when will this hit GA? I dont see it in the roadmap
One issue our users have reported: Once the user clicks on Personalize Visual from the Visual Header, the Fields well is too narrow and only shows the first 12-13 characters in each field. So instead of displaying this:
Units Sold - This Month
Units Sold - Last Month
Units Sold - ...
Units Sold - ...
Widening the pane, having tooltips, or having a left/right scroll bar will help. Thanks!
Another piece of feedback received from one of our users testing this new functionality:
LOVE the potential of personalize visuals.
Like others, I found the full list of all tables and fields to be overwhelming.
Someone may have mentioned this already, but I think that some tabs could help out, as in editing the pivot table fields in Excel.
The fields menu for pivot tables shows two tabs: Active and All. Active shows all fields for Active tables, whether selected or not. This would definitely simplify interacting with a data model that has multiple fact tables.
Would be cool if you could personalise a text box - - e.g. hitting personalise this visual on a text box means the end user could edit/ add their own text.
We are loving this feature so far. It is exactly what we are trying to build for our customer. Things we would love to see from this feature are:
1) Being able to view it in the embedded view.
2) Limiting the data that the user has access to without hiding it in the report.
3) Giving the user the ability to edit their own chart and axis title for their customised graphs.
4) Selecting a datetime value as it is without being forced to choose it as hierarchy.
We look forward to seeing how this feature evolves with time. Thanks to the people working hard behind the scene to deliver it.
