One question I get asked all the time is this:
Why don’t you add [insert feature idea here] to Power BI?
It’s sometimes followed up by one or more of the following comments:
It would be so easy for you to do
I can’t believe you haven’t done it already
Power BI is unusable without it
[insert competitor name here] has had this feature for years
…and a real or virtual exasperated sigh.
Read on for the answer. This isn’t special to Power BI or even Microsoft—once you start to have customers with competing interests, these decisions get a lot harder.
