Auto scroll in Embedded reports

Status: Accepted
by prateekraina Established Member Monday - last edited Monday

Hi Team,

 

Lately, i have noticed that power bi embedded reports are automatically getting focus by auto scrolling in webpage as soon as the iframe loads.

 

This bug seems to have resurfaced as this issue was logged before and resolved.

Example: http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Data-Stories-Gallery/LinkedIn-Connection-Analytics/m-p/234802

 

Used browsers: Chrome and Edge.

Hi all,

 

I have a client who is on the latest release of Power Bi Desktop (v 2.46.4732.721), although this issue also occurs on the previous version (2.46.4732.581). When they create a new measure on top of a live tabular model connection and set the formatting, the formatting only persists for that Power BI Desktop session. When they save the file and close and reopen, the formatting reverts back to the default, which is especially unreadable for percentages and currency. Is this fixable? Thanks!

Change Font in new Matrix Title

The new Matrix visual does not have an option to change the font in the title field like the other text fields. Our company requires us to use a specific font and we cannot deviate. See image below.

Apps Missing

Users reporting that the menus structure has completely changed within the Web client and that theyu cannot find apps which is how they access dashboards and reports. This changed at some point this weekend.

All of the sudden (perhaps after the April 2017 update?), any dashboards we share out-of-tenant from Power BI Web are missing the tabs along the bottom to switch between the different reports in that dashboard.  

We tested with in-tenant sharing and it works fine - only an issue when shared externally.   

 

We tried creating a new dashboard from scratch with 2 simple tabs and published out of tenant - same issue.  All tabs are just gone!  

 

 

By the way, I did see a similar thread (http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/Report-tabs-missing-on-shared-dashboard/idi-p/150884) but it seems too different from what we're experiencing.  In that case, 3 out of 5 tabs disappeared and it happened when shared internally or externally.  Our issue happens only when sharing externally.  Perhaps the same issue.

 

We noticed a warning on the client side that only appears when looking at it out-of-tenant - this may be related to what's happening or perhaps not:

There seems to be other issues with PBI of late (data failed to load when first opening a dashboard) so perhaps the tabs missing are part of a bigger problem.  However, for now that is the problem that is getting in the way of us delivering analytics to our clients.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

P.S. We had another issue with out-of-tenant dashboards where the Export Data just didn't work for them.  It was eventually fixed, but I'm beginning to wonder whether or not out-of-tenant sharing is the red-headed-stepchild of the PBI feature set.  It could certainly use a little more testing with each release...while I love the pace of innovation of PBI this isn't the first time that something in this dark, scary corner of PBI was broken and our clients were impacted.  Food for thought if this post happens to cross into any PBI QA LOS.

Search Box on Slicer Missing

Status: Accepted
by MikeThibs Regular Visitor on ‎01-05-2017 04:39 PM

Hello,

     The Search Box on the Slicer Visualization seems to have a bug when a PBIX file is loaded to the Power BI Service. This issue is affecting the drop-down format of a Slicer. Also it seems to only affect Slicers with a larger amount of items. When there are 2 or 3 items in the slicer the search box will appear however if there are 20 plus or more items it is not working. I've tried several different browsers, so I don't believe that is the issue. Below are screenshot showing the search box has been enabled and the missing search box when you select the drop down. Please help!!! We're on the verge of rolling out hundreds of new Power BI accounts and this is a serious issue when you have large slicer needs.

I though this was fixed in the last release and seemed to stopped happening after I downloaded the newest version. Now it is back and is a complete pain to deal with. Please fix this issue. Sign in issue_Ink_LI.jpg

Hi

 

I've got a site report that I use url paramaters to direct users to a specific site, based on the site code. this works in "My" Workspace

https://app.powerbi.com/groups/me/reports/[ReportID]/ReportSection?filter=SiteInfo/SiteCode eq '3408'

 

However, when I publish the exact same report to an App Workspace, the URL filters fail.

https://app.powerbi.com/groups/63805a40-89ff-4fa4-8a2e-55055ef0903d/reports/[NewReportID]/ReportSect...

 

The report comes back non filtered, and I can see the url parameter being removed from the URL. I've tired a couple of reports with the same behaviour. Can we not use URL filters on app workspace reports? 

 

 

Can anyone replicate and confirm it's not just me?

URGENT!!: Map Visualization Not Working

Status: Delivered
by amwithi Visitor on ‎06-08-2017 11:01 AM

Both (Map and Filled Map) visuals are no longer rendering online.

Both render OK on Power BI desktop but are blank online, showing only the MAP background.  The data is not mapped.

 

Please advise as this is a critical capability.

It looks like that filtering is not working properly when using three or more slicers/filters in Power BI Online Report view. It works on the desktop version but when publishing to Power BI Online some of the relations between filters is broken.

 

See video for reproducing the issue:

I am observing, the Horizontal slicers on report are not showing as selected and that's confusing as I can't see which filter I selected. Checked the same file on PBIX desktop it's showing proper selected color. Does anyone observed this issue or have any workaround?

 

Thanks,

Hi There,

 

Is anyone having issues with the matrix preview disappearing when uploading reports. Its been working for weeks however today 22-06-2017 its not rendering correctly. The colours are being replaced and editing the reports in the portal is not taking any changes. 

 

All my reports are showing the same issue.

In the new January, 2017 release, I get a "Report has already been published" error message when I try to use the PUBLISH option to Update a report that exists on the Service from Desktop.

 

- Steps:

--I updated a report in Desktop that had been previously published to the Service.

--I selected the PUBLISH menu option in Desktop

--I selected MY WORKSPACE (where the report was located)

--I received an error "Report has already been published" and the update failed.

 

I've tried with several different reports both with the Service running and with the Service not running.  I've also exited Desktop and restarted it and repeated the operation.  In all cases, I got the same error.

Greetings, 

 

I'm having trouble loading my report measures when using DirectQuery for SAP BW on Power BI cloud service.
Here is the error message:

"Couldn't load the data for this visual

 
MdxScript(Model) (5, 42) Cannot find data source '' in function 'EXTERNALEXPRESSION'.
Please try again later or contact support. If you contact support, please provide these details.

Correlation ID0c939e55-b820-03e1-3024-c14d1d51cb13
Version13.0.1781.239"

Some facts: 

- I'm loading dimensions and measures (key figures) from Bex Query perfectly well in Power BI Desktop;

- The issue happens only with Measures on the Power Bi Service after publishing the report;

- Dimensions and Hierarchies are loading seamlessly on Power BI service;  
- The Data Gateway is up and running;
- I've tried to convert the measures into currency format but to no avail;

"Send a Frown (Error)" is not available in the error message window to report the technical issue;

Has anyone run into the same problem using DirectQuery (beta) and Data Gateway connecting to a Bex Query? (SAP BW)

Thanks!

Since with datasets that always refreshed overnight as scheduled I'm now getting the "received uncompressed data on the gateway client has exceeded limit" error - without many changes from the previous datasets size - I'd like to know if there's a way to know the actual uncompressed data size.

(And I wonder why what always used to work, doesn't work anymore...)

 

Thanks,

Davide

Slicer font color bug (for selected slice)

Status: New
by cmauricio Occasional Visitor on ‎05-20-2017 09:54 AM

A few days ago, my slicers layout got ruined: because its not possible to configure font and background color for either selected and unselected slices, we can only use force "default" colors for slicers.

 

I have a couple of horizontal orientation slicers. Dark grey as background color and white as foreground, right? Nope. Dark grey as background color, black as foreground color...

 

PowerBI Desktop - Dark Grey & white -> perfect

Published link (web) - Dark grey & black -> wrong

How can i solve this? Even better, when will we all be able to set colors for background and foreground (selected slices)?

 

Thanks!

 

 

 

In the July release we got the option to rename fields per visual (which is really great!!) :

 

 

However, when using a SSAS Tabular live connection, the rename option doesn't appear when the field is a in a hierarchy:

Publishing : The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

Status: Accepted
by Zodiakcz Occasional Visitor ‎05-10-2017 07:53 AM - edited ‎05-11-2017 01:06 AM

So since today I've been getting one of following errors. It started when I tried to publish an existing version of a report, when i got this error.

 

Errors: 

The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

or

Publishing failed for uknown reason

or

Endless "publishing", that cannot be cancelled and the powerbi must be shut down via task manager

 

Here is what I tried so far:

 

- removed the data set

- rename the report

- create a new report on same data set

- create a new report on different data set (and connection type)

- moving the .pbix file to online storage

- relog, restart, trial pro version, publish to workgroup

- and of course googling for hours.

 

EDIT: Looks like it was resolved, today it works fine.

Export to Powerpoint

Status: Accepted
by jlilleystone Visitor on ‎03-03-2017 01:46 AM

We like to use the Export to Powerpoint feature but I think we've found a bug. If I publish a report from PBI desktop to the PBI.com service and then export the report to Powerpoint it works fine. If in the PBI.com service I take a copy of that report to modify it (by using Save As and giving it a different filename) the export to Powerpoint produces blank slides for each page in the report. The report has no embedded images and only has 5 or 6 pages in the report. Please help - being able to export consistently to Powerpoint is a big part of our use of PBI. If it doesnt work we may have to stop using it. Of course we can take screen grabs of each page and paste them into Powerpoint but I wouldnt expect my users to have to resort to that approach. Thanks.
