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.
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.
I'm using the new Preview Feature "Power Bi Service Live Connections" where I'm linking multiple reports to the same Dataset.
Multiple dashboards are created based on these reports and are shared within the organziation.
The issue is that visuals within these dashboards are not being linked with the reports and an error is being shown in the dashboard stating the reports do no longer exist.
The problem is not common on all platforms, things are working smoothly on the web but are not working on iOS app(iphones and ipads) and it is only facing the shared users within the organization. Clicking on the "Go to Report" link within the visuals sometimes disappear and other times are not responsive.
Owner of the report can still access the reports from the dashboard using iOS apps.
Reports that are not using the new Preview Feature are working perfectly.
We have a Power BI report created with few custom visuals and number of different tabs. The report works fine while viewing through desktop or Power BI service. However, while viewing the same report through mobile app on iPad, sometimes it just goes blank and nothing gets displayed. We tried the same thing in different iPads and have confirmed that its not related to a single device. I am not sure if its related to stability of the mobile app as our iPads are using the latest Power BI updates and still the report crashes very intermittently. Has anyone faced similar issue with mobile apps?
I have a dashboard that works fine in the desktop while in mobile it is not showing up. The measures and some visuals in the mobile device is not reliable. Can you please help me on this.
I have custom URLs on all my dashboard tiles so that they open the right report pages and filter the reports appropriately. These are now working fine in the browser, but on iPad and iPhone apps they only open the report to its first page. They don't go to the right page, and they don't filter the report.
This detracts from the usability of the mobile experience significantly.
Attempting any scan of QR or Bar code does not work on Iphone Ios App ver 12.0 You do not get to see the camera view, just a white screen. This was working fine in earlier versions, it seems a recent update broke it.
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 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.
