Allow pinned live pages to remain interactive in mobile apps. Live page interactivity is a large draw of this feature, but this limits a complete dashboard experience to the browser, and prevents end users consuming reports on mobile devices from having the same rich experience.
Per the forum thread linked below, this functionality was working in the past, but we have recently seen with a customer that pinned live pages are not interactive on the iOS app on iPads. Per an email from the Power BI support team, this lack of interactivity is by design.
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.
My main report has black background and white text. When trying to create a mobile view of the report in Phone Layout, I cannot set the background color I want and this causes the text to disappear vs. the default white background, when viewing it on the phone.
Please add functionality to control the background color in the Phone Report Layout view.
I have the barcode scanner working if i ues the link from the main mobile app navigation page. But once in the app in a specific report if i open up the scanner from the page menus the barcode scanner does not find any values. Is this a bug?
There is an issue with "Two-level Tree Map" on Android app for SSRS Mobile Reports: if open second level, it hangs and no option to return back to full Tree Map chart.
In case if suddenly it returned back on full Tree Map, then full tree map after returning looks corrupted and not working well anymore.

I am new to Power BI and have been developing the reports through Power BI in last two months.
One of the report requirements is to have three reports (which are basically hierarchical) to be linked together. We have achieved this in the WEB through the hyperlink option and it is working fine.
But the idea is to present these reports in IPAD within the Power BI App.
Within the App, when we click the hyperlink of the 1st report (topmost hierarchy), the underlying report opens up in a browser, but not within the app, but the requirement and the preference is to open underlying reports open within the APP with the filtered parameter passed through. If we try to open within the app, it is not filtered with the passed parameter.
Is there any solution yet for this in Power BI?
I have searched this link - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/mobile-apps-deep-link-specific-location.
This only says about opening up a report within the app, but not with a passed parameter. Please help, as this is urgent,
We've just released our first app to end users for testing and have discovered that when viewed on mobile devices, the page background images are not being displayed.
This is obviously not what we need, so short of releasing 2 apps for every one we design (desktop and mobile), is there a way we can have background images show on mobile?
Also, we'd like Live Pages when viewed on mobile devices, to be enabled so end users can interact with the objects on screen.
Thanks in advance
I am currently unable to contain all the contents/visuals of the power bi reports on the mobile app (vertical/normal phone position). It seems there is a limit to the vertical area that the report can display through the app - please verify.

SSRS Mobile reports:
In case if dataset is cached in SSRS:
1) When dataset is without parameters: then everything works well in both Android and iPhone. Reports are rendering.
2) When dataset is parameterized: then works on iPhone only. Android shows visuals and continious progress bar in each component - endless, not able to retrieve data.
There is no difference if default value kept in dataset parameter or another parameter value defined (with cache refresh for parameter) in Mobile Report designer dataset options -> Android not able to render.
For now, to be able have SSRS Mobile Reports working on Android and using dataset caching functionality: separate datasets for each report has to be created with no parameters. No option to prepare one dataset with different parameters, cache, and re-use mobile reports with different parameter values.
Uncomfortable from design/management perspective, when have to have a lot of identical datasets where difference is only filters that need to be applied on dataset level. Change in one - means a lot of work changing it everywhere...
Problem is related to Android. On iPhone/iPad everything works fine, with parameters.
After last Friday's update, report background images no longer appear in landscape mode in the mobile app. It affects ALL reports, regardless of author, etc.
This is a CRITICAL branding issue for my clients and needs to be addressed ASAP.
Power Bi on my iPhone and iPad is logging out every few hours. If I switch focus to another app, then come back I hav to log in again. This never used to be the case.
is there a problem with the iOS version?
currentlty running the latest version on the App Store, version 14.2
Incorrect KPI color is shown on Android app:
- If KPI status is not set, then the color of KPI is Grey on reporting web portal, Windows 10 Power BI app and iPhone/iPad apps.
- On Android app: it is shown as Yellow, instead of expected Grey color.
Having issue on iPhone with presentation of KPI currency code: all KPI shows EUR as currency. But there are different currencies defined for different KPI's.
Do not have this problem on Windows 10 and Android: there currency code is valid.
But iPhone ignores currency code defined in KPI, and shows everything as EUR.
As workaround, will have to remove currency code from all KPI's, and add it in KPI description... Which is not a solution going forward...
If the KPI value is defined manually, and contain "text" instead of number:
- then the text value is not visible on Android app. Only KPI description shown with empty field.
On iPhone text value in KPI is shown, as expected.
We implemented a solution for one of our client where we publish differents reports on different apps for different departments. Some users can access multiple apps and others only the one for their department. The users have email subscribed to some reports/dashboards through the apps.
But emails sent to them are showing weird things when they open them on a mobile device: When they open the emails on mobile devices it seems to bring up, in addition of the actual screenshot of the reports/dashboard they subscribe to, a screenshot of a report/dashboard at random coming from an other App. When they open it again few minutes after, the content has changed but is still showing another report/dashboard from another App within the current email subscription.
I think this is a pretty important bug that Power BI need to fix quickly, especially for data that can be really sensitive.
There is an issue with the Title of a visualization when optimized for mobile reporting. Currently the title of the visual does not show unless you tap the visual on the phone. This may have been from a recent update but this is an issue that takes away from the overall mobile experience. Sample images below.
It is a basic error!
When you get in your "Your Application" area, in the Power Bi service, the date that is showing is the CREATED date of the APP. Even if you have republished/updated your APP. As you can see in the forum below:
Even worst is when the APP is accessed by mobile devices (IPAD, IPHONE and ANDROID) before the date is displayed a label " "LATEST UPDATE". But actually, the date which is shown is the CREATED date again!! It makes our clients and users crazy, because the APP was already updated but date makes them think that it is not.
Even it is removed or the date should be most updated date which the app was republished.
Can anyone help in this issue? It is a very basic detail but makes all difference.
When using the KPI, the format of a percentage field is displaying as a decimal. If I use a card then the Windows Tile displays it correctly as a percentage. Is this a known issue when using this from a KPI? Thanks.
By 'not working', I mean the free user is prompted to upgrade to a pro licence, which is not how Premium is intended to work.
Premium does not work in any browser for our free users, internal or external to the domain, irregardless of browser choice, or device (i.e. a browser on a smartphone).
However, Premium does work within the Power BI mobile app for smartphones, and the Microsoft Power BI app found on the Windows 10 store.
I have posted something similar here http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/Premium-App-Still-Requesting-Upgrade-to-Pro-Licence/idi-p/236... but now have more information regarding the issue.
I downloaded the Power BI app for Android on my LG phone (Android v7.0). When I open it and try to get to Power BI, after providing my email address, I get an error message that says “We couldn’t sign you in. Something went wrong during authentication process. Please try again or contact support.” Trying again gets the same result. I know I have an account because I can log in with no problem on my PC.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Power BI on my phone but with the same result.
