Dashboard sharing Disabled for non-PRO users ?

Status: Accepted
by djnww Established Member Thursday - last edited Thursday

We can no longer share a dashboard with users from our own workspace. I received the message:

"This dashboard contains Power BI Pro content. Only users that have Power BI Pro will have access to it"


I confirmed my fears by publishing the simplest of reports which is 100% non-pro content. There have been a few other mentions of it on the forum in the past couple of hours, but I thought I'd create an official post. 


1st sharing was disabled from Group Workspaces to non-pro users. Surely Microsoft has accidentally disabled ALL sharing for non-pro users ? If not, you can imagine the uproar.


Is anybody else facing the same problem ? 


Power BI clearly states that we are able to share personal dashboards with non-pro users.

Custom Visual tooltips not shown on dashboards

Status: Accepted
by FP Occasional Visitor on ‎04-21-2017 05:31 AM


When a custom visual is pinned to a dashboard tooltips are not displayed on mouse over, while native visuals can display their tooltips correctly.

In all other contexts (included dashboard in focus mode) tooltips work as expected.


We noticed this issue testing our custum visuals and also pinning to a dashboard the sampleBarChart visual provided by Microsoft.
Debugging the code we noticed that the method is called as usual in tooltipServiceWrapper.ts, but nothing is shown.

I've published a report from my work account.

Under Dataset Settings it shows Datagateway error and shows:

This data set has been configured by *myprivate* .

I've tripple checked my credential, sign-out and in ...

I see my WORK environment, but it somehow connects the Dataset to gmail....

And doesn't allow me to set up Enterprise Gatway for Dataset or Refresh

I know others are experiencing same issue here:


Please help.

April 2017 update - import custom visualization option missing on first run

Status: Accepted
by AnthonyB New Member ‎04-14-2017 09:56 PM - edited ‎04-14-2017 09:57 PM

Since upgrading to the April 2017 update (Version: 2.45.4704.442 64-bit (April 2017)) I've noticed that the three ellipses for importing a custom visualization is missing if you also have ArcGIS Maps preview enabled until you collapse and re-expand the Visualizations pane.


The problems seems to be that the ArcGIS Maps visualization icon gets placed on top of the 3 ellipses (you can see this as the page renders), but when the Visualzations pane is collapsed and re-opened, it correctly re-calculates the spacing of the icons.

Search Box on Slicer Missing

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


     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'm working with a live connection to an Azure Analysis Services instance and it seems to me that measures with BLANK values have unexpected behaviours.
This problem arises both using "Standard" and "Azure" connector.

When I put into a table, or other visual, descriptive fields and only blank measures all performs as expected.
When I put into a table, or other visual, numeric fields and a blank measures these show random values (often they are randomly choosen from a field on the same evaluation row).

For my tests I have created a measure as follows "blankmeasure := BLANK()", so I am sure it should not return any value.

Text.AfterDelimiter Bug in Power BI Service?

Status: Accepted
by boujin Frequent Visitor on ‎04-11-2017 02:21 PM




I used the new beta feature Colum From Examples to create a column. It ended up giving me M code with the function Text.BetweenDelimiter. This was my first time to see this function and noticed there was also a Text.AfterDelimiter function that I changed it to as that fit my purposes. I refreshed the entire dataset within Power BI Desktop without any issues and then published to the Power BI Service.


When I looked at the refresh in Power BI Service later, the refresh had failed with the following error:

The import Text.AfterDelimiter matches no exports. Did you miss a module reference?. The exception was raised by the IDataReader interface.


I went back into Power BI Desktop and swapped out Text.AfterDelimiter with List.Last(Text.Split()) and published again. This time the referesh worked without any issue.


I have Text.BetweenDelimiters in use in other parts of the query, so wondering if there is a bug around Text.AfterDelimiter and the Power BI Service.

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 service and then export the report to Powerpoint it works fine. If in the 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.

Export PowerPoint Blank Slides Problem

Status: Accepted
by aungpyae Occasional Visitor on ‎03-09-2017 03:14 AM



I tried to export to PowerPoint but it created blank slides. I can export to PowerPoint by using existing examples created by Power BI itself. However, for my own report, I could not export.

I'm getting this error since yesterday on a new dataset. It is a simple excel file table. I've done the following.

Signed out of Power BI Desktop and back in

Got the latest personal gateway

turned the gateway service off / on

republished multiple times during this process.


Others seem to be having the same issue. see thread here

There is a current support site error message, but it is specific to SharePoint as a data source only.

Issue: Dropdown Slicer

Status: Accepted
by wonga Established Member on ‎03-14-2017 07:44 AM

Sometimes when I use the dropdown slicer in Power BI Desktop, the list of values doesn't disappear after clicking out of it. It will stay on the screen even if I go to a different page of the report.


The only way to "fix" it is save my report and reopen the report by closing Power BI Desktop.


Please fix as soon as possible, thanks.

Power Query - Add Column from Example

Status: Accepted
by LeoSugianto Occasional Visitor on ‎04-06-2017 09:13 PM

HI Microsoft,


I tried to add "column from example" in Power BI, which worked so great, but I think I found a bug about it. I did that by inserting the step, so that add column from example is not the last step, however, the M code generated put it to the very last step, and worse it replaces the last step. The title step is still the one I created, for example: Removed Columns, but the code of add column from example was put there.

I have several text tiles on my Dashboard. I made some changes to the text content and styling and saved them, and the save appeared to work. However, when I navigated away from the dashboard and returned to it, the changes had been reverted. I checked with collaborators and no one else had even been on that dashboard at that time.

Invalid credentials on Sharepoint folder

Status: Accepted
by csabil Frequent Visitor on ‎11-22-2016 10:46 PM

Since yesterday I'm having an issue connecting to an excel file in a Sharepoint folder. It was already working, but I made some changes and republished it. Refresh works fine in Power BI Desktop, but online. It seem it's trying to connect to a Sharepoint list, instead of folder. I have an other report connecting to an other excel file in the same folder and it works fine. Could this be connected to the issue in North Europe? I'm in that datacenter.

Text Box on Dashboards not updating

Status: Accepted
by CMcAlpine Frequent Visitor on ‎03-09-2017 02:11 PM

This is a bug, and was suggested to be logged here by @mihart from this forum post:


Details are on creation of a dashboard text box, with no links to reports. If you save the text box and then go to edit the text box, you are able to edit it with success, until you refresh the dashboard or file, at which time the updated text dissapears and the text box reverts back to it's original content.


In short, text boxes are not retaining content when an edit is made.

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.

When I use Datevalue it does not seem to use my locale settings, rather it is hardcoded to the American MM/DD/YYYY.

I create a report on Power BI Desktop with a Project Online Odata feed as data source.

I can connect and update from PBI Desktop without any problems.


However, when i publish it to Power BI, and go to Schedule Refresh, i get this error under Data Source Credentials:


When i try to edit the credentials, i set to OAuth2 and enter the correct credentials but i got the error below:



 I'm pretty sute that the correct authentication method to Odata feed is OAuth2, but i tried the other methods and got the same error


 I'm not able to update the credentials in any situation. I've tryied to republish the reports, create a new one from scratch but i got always the same situation.


Best Regards,
