New Idea

I noticed today that ALL of my attribute slicers are now set to 'highlight' other visuals rather than 'filter' them. I didn't make this change. They have been set to filter for 2 months. Perhaps this was triggered by the January update? Lots of rework involved to set them up to filter again.

I added a simple filter(report level) in the report, saved the report. checked the dashboard.


Then I delete the filter, save the report, check the dashboard which seems good. 


But everytime when I refresh the dashboard, or go back to the report, the filter comes back! 


Thanks in advance!

Still unable to refresh on Power BI Service (Online), where we have a numbe of reports that employees rely on for daily data. 


Do we have an idea when this is going to be fixed? I am a user in the UK

Hi, Thanks for implementing some new Matrix features. Nevertheless I noticed a bug when drilling down into the columns: - drilldown works as expected BUT there is no way to drill up again.

Thanks for having a look into that

We have a production implementation of Power BI for which we turned on device based Conditional Access (CA), and added relevant AD groups. After turning on CA, users in the device based AD group are unable to sign in from Power BI desktop and also cannot sign in upon installation of a new Enterprise Gateway.

We get the following message: Unable to sign in. Sorry we encountered an error while trying to sign you in. Details: AADSTS50000. Device platform Unknown used by the user is an unsupported device platform. Supported device platforms are iOS, Android, and Windows flavors.

We are on a Windows platform and tested from Windows 8 and Windows 7 machines, and encountered the same error on both. This issue applies to October 2016 and September 2016 versions of desktop. To prove that CA triggered this issue, we used a test user not in the device based AD group. The test user was able to sign in successfully.

This issue is critical as it prevents us from being able to publish directly from Power BI desktop and prevents users from installing a new Enterprise Gateway.

Please let me know if you need any additional information. If you need Trace ID, Correlation ID or Timestamp, I can provide it via email.

If you try to upload Power BI content and haven't checked to see if you are still signed in when you try to publish the file PBI hangs. You can't enter credentials as PBI is attempting to upload the file.

I am building a couple of dashboards in desktop, done 60Hrs this week alone.

Working fine yestereday- all use excel files and tables as data sources

Today- Update inside windows 10 insiderPro build 15002 this morning

Update to Jan 2017 PowerBI

Now every dash won't update with the message 

DataFormat.Error: The input couldn't be recognized as a valid Excel document.

Every file opens fine in excel not corrupted, even tried with new data, same message


I've rolled back to an earlier Power BI but get the same error, any other ideas welcome.

Is there a setting in the build 15002 that doesn't recognise excel files as excel files???

Background images in Power BI Desktop work fine. Either after publishing the report to Power BI Service or creating a new report there, the background picture centers in the canvas and there is no way of fixing it. Even removing the image and trying to apply a color background behaves in the same way. The only way I´ve found as a workaround is placing visuals in each corner of the report priort to publishing but this is crearly undesirable in the long run.

You can see all the white space left where you can place visuals.

When moving from one workspace to another in Power BI service, a member of the workspace always get this prompt - "Sorry, we couldn't find that report". This does not happen when logged in a admin though.

Could you please advise ?

Odd behavior in Cloud vs Desktop... PBID displays the time with zone (-7) as expected, cloud service does not.

Left side is cloud service, right side is PBID.

Very simple 'Refreshed' Query...entered a value into the 'Enter Data', added a custom column, deleted sample data:
Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMlSKjQUA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Column1 = _t]),
#"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Column1", Int64.Type}}),
#"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Last Refreshed", each DateTime.AddZone(DateTime.LocalNow(),-7)),
#"Removed Columns" = Table.RemoveColumns(#"Added Custom",{"Column1"})
#"Removed Columns"

Expected behavior or bug?

Mixpanel query failure

Status: Needs Info
by kenzhang123 Visitor on ‎03-01-2017 02:39 PM

I'm a new user to PowerBI. I couldn't get around with mixpanel connector. It fails on me. the first screen shot works. The second doesn't work. I suspect there's a bug.



The screen shot below has the perfect structure (in my opinion) I verify it in chrome from mixpanel. But it won't retrieve and give me an error code 400


Any help is appreciated. I'm very frustrated.........

Previously there was a message on the Microsoft Support Page that it is a known issue, but now it shows "No known issues..."

But I still cannot update my dataset Smiley Sad

I have 8 OData API connections and 6 Web connections to OneDrive for Business Excel Files

First - it shows error "Can't refresh your data: The credentials you provided for the Data Source are invalid".

When I go to settings and enter the credentials in 3 places with "X" error mark next to them - it accepts them (I don't know why it shows this error in the first place).

Then - I press on Refresh now - and after showing "Prepare for refresh" for several seconds - nothing happens. I don't even see the "working circle" next to my dataset.

I just have to update in Destop and republish

Please help...


Thank you

Between option on dates is not working on timeline custom visual nor in timeline slicer once we import data from direct query. 




Search on a slicer set as dropdown

Status: Accepted
by gooranga1 Member on ‎01-18-2017 04:53 AM

In the January 2017 release it looks like the Search facility on a slicer that is set to a drop down has been removed? 


I can set up a slicer as list and search it but as soon as I switch it to a drop down I can no longer search.


Can this be re-instated?

Hi ,


I was very excited when wrap column headers was introduced in the January 17 update. Then very dismayed to find once published it was not supported.

Please tell me I am missing a trick, or alternatively when I can expect it to be supported?


Kind Regards

Important Issue:
 Tested on different machines using Windows 10 and the latest version of PowerBI - February 2017 (2.43.4647.541 64-bit)


  • Adding a image to page background ether on fill or fit, will cut the image, no matter what resolution is tried.


We’ve been using this feature, of adding a image to a page background, since last year without any problem.
On the the latest release of the PowerBI, each time we add a new image to page background it will be cutted and doesn’t fill the page.

(Images with the same resolution that worked before. Reports made with previous PowerBI version display the image perfectly without cutting edges.)




1) How it worked while using Jannuary 2017 or previous PowerBI releases.

2) What is occuring using the same image on PowerBI latest release, February 2017 with fit option


2) What is occuring using the same image on PowerBI latest release, February 2017 with fill option
