Adding comments in the dashboard page or charts

I have a customer that want to put comments and annotations on the charts and dashboards. some other competitors supports this. I wonder is this feature in your list of to-add or not? if yes, do you have a timeline?

This gap will be improving very soon. In the short-term, I use Excel 2013 Power View Text Box as a work-around.  

 

Hope that helps.

Not at the moment, but that sounds like a great candidate for a feature request. You can submit one at  https://support.powerbi.com/

Re: Adding comments in the dashboard page or charts

This is actually possible: I have found a work around but with limitations:

Create a data entry table using "Enter Data" add the column "comment" to contain your comments and additional columns for the details by which you want to filter e.g. date:

Link other fields to the relevant tables e.g. date to date table. And then just drag the comments field to the canvas:

The big issue at the moment is the display of a text field: text is not displayed in full, there is no visual which allows wrapping as shown in the above screen shot.

I see that there is a comments tab in the On-Prem PowerBI Report Server. where you can add notes related to the PowerBI Report. Its very useful!!
