We use background images to improve the visual appearance of our reports. The images used to resize based on the size of the browser window. However, recently the images stopped resizing proportionally to the other visuals. This occurs in the service and mobile views. It occurs in reports and dashboards.
To illustrate this issue, place an image on a report spanning the entire report. Add some visuals on top of the image. Make your browser window smaller. The visuals get a little smaller but the image gets tiny and the visuals no longer "fit" within the image.
Currently, when new tiles are pinned to a dashboard they are not included in the mobile verison as well (added to the side bar to be mannually added). This means that you either have to add them mannually and reformat them, or reset to show all tiles. This is very manual and increases time to publish. It also leaves room for error as this can only be done manually.
Issue description: I have report buit which has the graphs. When I pin this report as live page to a dashboard, the report is visible in the Dashboard in Portrait mode in iOS (Report is smaller and is visible as kind of tile).
When I click on it in portrait mode, it switches to landscape mode and then nothing happens and no graphs are loaded.
Can someone help me with this issue?
I linked dashboards from picture tiles, to open the dashbaord on click (with the link https://app.powerbi.com/groups/dashboards/xxxx)
- That's working fine on the web page
- That's working fine on the iOS App, the dashboard will be opened in the app
- That's not working on the Android App and Windows Phone App. These Apps opens the link in a browser and not in the app
The same linking procedure works for normal report tiles.
In a browser, when a mouse is over a table/matrix (even when the table/matrix doesn't have to be scrolled), the scrolling of the page doesn't work, which makes for a very poor user experience. To avoid this issue a report developer needs to leave some blank space on the side of the page where users can hover over with a mouse for the page scroll to work. I can understand why this would be when a number of rows in a table is greater than can be displayed, but this should not be happening when there are less rows than the size of the table can accomodate, i.e. there are no scroll bars appearing.
The same goes for the apps (tested on Android mobile, iPhone and iPad), the scrolling as well as zooming in/out doesn't work well when you have a big table/matrix on a page and makes for a poor UX.
Please find a solution to this problem, because this issue is not appearing when other visuals are used, i.e. when a bar chart is used (and mouse is over the chart) the page scrolling works fine when all bars can be displayed and when there are more than can be displayed the scrolling works on that chart only, as expected. Why the same behaviour isn't implemented on tables and matrixes?
I added a simple Excel workbook to my Workspace. I chose "Upload your Excel file to Power BI".
When I open the workbook in my PC browser, everything is fine: I can view the workbook and work with it via Excel Online.
Then I switch to the Power BI Mobile app and open the workbook by tapping on it in the "Reports" list. This time, my iPad tries to open the file by launching the (installed) Excel app. The first error coming from Excel is like "Excel can't open this workbook", followed by another "Microsoft Excel can't open file from ms-excelfv|u|<filename>.xlsx Check link address and try again."
This error occurs since the first day i tried it a year ago. I hoped it would be fixed over time but now our Power BI Go-live approaches quickly and I need to fix loose ends like this. Any hints? Am I missing something?
The mentioned error is shown when I open any dashboard or report. I can login and see the lists of dashboards and reports. But after clicking on an report or dashboard to open it, the error occurs all the time. The error even shows when I want to open the example reports.
The error is shown after I uninstalled the app and re-installed it on my iPad today. Before that, I got an error like "Error occured. Check your connection" for several weeks. Before that, everything went smoothly.
The iPad uses VPN to connect to a company-internal (Blackberry-)Server, which then communicates with the cloud. Because that server is secured by a firewall I was able to check if traffic was blocked. But there was no blocked traffic.
What now? I'm happy to provide further information, if it helps to find the error!
I have issues to login to powerbi (Web and Desktop), with my o365 business premium account, aquired from Godaddy, the message is the following:

I am using Personal Gateway to Refresh CSV Files from a folder. My Report gets updated but my Dashboard Tiles Doesn't.
I have tried the "Refresh Dashboard Tiles" Option but its of no use. To ensure the updated info, i have to delete the existing one and have to repin the tiles, which is annoying and cumbersome.
This is important because my User check the report from their Mobile.
Look forward for a better solution.
I have Power BI Online reporting connected to Azure Analysis services, and there are sporadic times that datasets, reports, and dashboards won't automatically refresh at their expected intervals. In most cases the Power BI online reports and dashboards are 2 hours behind in refreshing.
The datasets are all connected live. I have a screenshot example of 4 datasets where the "Next Refresh" date/time is prior to the current date/time.
Is there anything that can be done to automatically force dataset/report/dashboard refreshes (PowerShell Script, Azure Function, etc...), or are there any dataset settings that need special configuration?
I have also posted this issue on the MSDN forums, and received a response confirming the behavior in the test environment. The URL of the posting is https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/44e
I use the URI scheme (documented here) to open the PowerPI app. I use the URL 'mspbi://app/' to open the PowerBI app to the 'Workspaces' view.
If I do a fresh install of the PowerBI app, then this URL open the PowerBI app to my 'Workspaces' view as expected.
However, if I then log into my PowerBI account, then this URL will open the PowerBI app but it will also show an error dialog saying 'Couldn't open link: Looks like we couldn't open this link. It may be broken or unsupported on this device.' with a 'Got it' button.
If I tap the 'Got it' button then I can use the app as normal, so it all works fine except for the unnecessary error message.
This happens on both iOS and Android.

Yesterday I uploaded a new report to my PowerBI Dashboard on the Cloud from PowerBI Desktop. Today I couldn´t login on PowerBI Mobile (Android) because this message: "We can´t continue to your login session". We can´t authenticate, because it was not possible to access the keys store on this device. Try to install again this app. If the problem continues, contact TI team or technical support. I did install again the app without any sucess. Any help would be much appreciated!! All my stuff is practically on the cloud.
Everytime we try to upgrade to a pro plan, we get the following error:
Please try again later or contact support. If you contact support, please provide these details.
How do we actually upgrade?
