How can we improve Microsoft Azure Analysis Services?

Implement Url and Report custom actions in Azure AS

The custom action for Url and Report was available in SSAS Tabular 1103 using BIDS Helper and relying on the existing infrastructure of Multidimensional. Users in Excel use this feature and this is blocking the upgrade of the model to new compatibility levels (and also stopping the adoption of Azure Analysis Services).

    We have lost the ability to view invoice images directly in Excel, adding a lot of time to people's work. Please add it back.

    Our team had field personnel using this feature to attach pictures to work orders, and the loss of the feature has set them back in the progress they were making in not only day to day work, but the overarching need to adopt new technologies.

    We had the ability to open invoices in our "old" system and it was widely used by the end useres

    It was a good feature in previous Tabular version 1103 and it will be very useful if the same feature applied in 1400 Tabular version.

    It was a great feature and now the business users on excel are regretting the decision to have moved to 1400. It is highly significant and urgent to have this feature added to 1400

    This is a really important feature in the reporting repertoire. We are looking forward to the general availability of feature that was easily available with BIDS Helper with Compatibility 1103

    Missing the URL feature is a huge pain point for our Excel users since migrating our tabular models to 1400. The current workaround of copy + pasting URLs into web browsers is a major inconvenience.

    Can we have an update on where this falls in the backlog?

    Lack of this feature is preventing several clients to upgrade to newer compatibility modes from 1103 or start new projects in Tabular.
