I published yesterday a dashboard on Power BI, and on my account there is absolutely no problem to see the data and interact with it, and refresh it, on demand or on schedule.

But when my colleagues try to access the dashboard, they have error messages on each visual in the pages, except images.



I implemented Row Level Security but only on PBI Desktop, it is not associated with email adresses.

This is a very annoying problem, please help me !

More info : the source is a set of Xlsm files hosted on Sharepoint.

the invited people have Office 365, they have the Power BI Pro Trial Mode and they are part of my Organization.

Did you assign a role for these users? If not, please try to assign them to a defined role in Power BI Service.

the case is resolved.

I deleted all roles on PBI Desktop and now there is no problem to display dashboards to others without errors
