Defaulting to blank report instead of auto-create

Is it possible to change the default behavior of creating a new report from a semantic model to be creating a blank report rather than the auto-create?

Hi @Edward_Russell 

 

@foodd Thank you very much for your prompt reply, please allow me to share some content here.

 

Auto-create report is designed to quickly create reports in the Power BI service.

 

At the same time, you can also choose to create a blank page and create reports as needed.

Thank you for the comment. I understand the difference between the two options, my question is whether it is possible to have "Create a blank report" be the default rather than having to first click the dropdown. 

Hi @Edward_Russell 

 

I understand your needs, power bi has design issues you can't modify.

 

You can propose an idea about this, you can submit your idea by going to the link below:

@Edward_Russell , I agree with you that a natural choice would be to change the default sort order to 'Create a Blank Report', followed by 'Auto-create report'. 

 

Issues

If you have found a true bug or issue, you can make a post to the forum to let others know (and that would be very nice of you to do so). But if you want to get it fixed, you should post it in the Issues/Ideas (it varies) area of the community. Specifically, you should post it here:

Power BI - https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/idb-p/Issues
PowerAutomate - https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/I-Found-A-Bug/bd-p/BugFound
PowerApps - https://ideas.powerapps.com


Ideas

If you have a new idea for functionality or how something should work, you can certainly start a thread on the community to solicit feedback on your idea, but you should also post the idea in the ideas section of the website and solicit others to vote on your idea. The development teams use the Ideas area of the communities to build their development pipeline and a significant amount of weight is placed on Ideas that have lots of votes versus those that do not. The ideas areas of the communities are here:

Hello @Edward_Russell , and thank you for sharing your observation about the default behavior of the button that creates a new report from a semantic model.
