New Idea

Greetings all,

 

After the update on 11.12.2017 we have noticed that the advanced filter for dates has stopped working correctly.

 

 

Basic and relative date Report Filter works fine, however, Advanced date filter does not work correctly anymore. You can open the advanced filter, and the calendar, however, you cannot select anything... What you select in the first calendar goes to the second date box. However, if you select something in the second box, it doesn't go anywhere. 

 

I believe you understand the criticality of this bug, and I'm tired of answering the phone.

 

The problem can be reproduced by all our users, testers and developers, both on powerbi.com and embedded reports (premium). It does not affect any filters in the PowerBI desktop.

 

If you need more info, give an e-mail (or if you have access to contact details, contact me directly) and I'll send you a video to demonstrate the bug and try to help you understand the situation better if needed.

Hi all.

From yesturday users outside of organisation see null dashboards with only the Q&A section. Any suggestions how I can fix this?

Hi All,

 

We have a Dashboard that pulls from 2 different reports that has been up and working fine for awhile.  But as of this morning we're suddenly seeing strange issues.  Here's what we observe:

 

- The main issue is that the Tiles are all blank (no error, just empty as in the first screenshot below)

- The dashboard says "Refreshing" in the top left and has been like that for hours

- The underlying reports do load properly, and if you pin a new Tile, then that new Tile works fine

- The original, blank tiles cannot be deleted from Dashboard.  When you click the menu, there simply isn't an option to delete it anymore. (see second screenshot)

- Clicking "Refresh Dashboard Tiles" does not force them to load

 

This is our main Dashboard and it would be less than ideal to have to rebuild it completely.  Hoping someone has seen this before and knows a solution...?

 

Thanks

Email Subscriptions - Showing No Data

Status: Delivered
by stetran Frequent Visitor on ‎11-24-2017 06:44 AM

Hi,

 

I have email subscriptions set up that send dashboards out to me on a daily basis. Occasionally, seemingly on random days, parts of the dashboards within the emailed image show no data when there is data in the data model, and the correct data is displayed when viewing the dashboard within Power BI itself.

 

Is anyone experiencing the same issue?

 

No data shown in the email, but the correct data can be seen within Power BINo data shown in the email, but the correct data can be seen within Power BI

 

Thanks,
Steven

Hi,

 

THis morning the sharing of a dashboard to an external user does not work on the service while it was working before.

The dashboard is referenced on the title but below the page is grey.

Can you check the service for any sharing issue to external users ?
Thanks in advance.

Yesterday, all my datasets were refreshing just fine but today nothing happens.

- The automatic refresh hasn't done anything.

- When I press "Refresh now", I get a "popup" saying "preparing refresh" for a split second and then nothing happens.

 

The only way to update the data is to refresh the Desktop version and then upload it. 

 

I have datasets connection to an on-premises database and one connecting to a sharepoint site.

- The on-premises connection usually works perfect, but now nothing happens.

- The sharepoint connection usually brings up an error,  if I try to refresh, but now nothing happens (I just tried it this time as a test, as it usually doesn't work automatically).

 

Can you please help troublefinding - It seems like an issue on you online portal somehow.

 

Thanks in advance.

Dashboard sharing Disabled for non-PRO users ?

Status: Delivered
by djnww Established Member ‎04-27-2017 05:28 AM - edited ‎04-27-2017 05:34 AM

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.

Don't see the "Analyze - Explain the decrease" option after September update

Hello friends,

In September's update there supposed to be a nice feature of explaining decrease/increase.

It is described here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=817&v=moTQJlnClJw

The problem is that I don't see this option when right clicking a chart column.

I did use a date column from a time dimension and a stacked column chart as described.

But no "Analyze" option....

Please help.

Thank you

Michael

When attempting to update a Power BI app that has been shared with an Office 365 group, multiple retries are needed in order for the group address to be accepted.  Here is the pattern I usually see for this:

 

  1. When the Access tab is first loaded, the Office 365 group is included in the permissions list by name.
  2. After the update button is clicked, the group is removed from the permissions list, and a message in the following pattern is highlighted below the permissions list control: "These email addresses are invalid or duplicate: group@company.onmicrosoft.com"
  3. After #2, the group cannot be located by typing in the permissions list control (using either its name or its email address).
  4. If the group e-mail address is typed or pasted in the permissions list control, updating the app may become possible, but this usually requires several attempts (usually at least 3, sometimes more than 5).

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.

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.

Bug in "Don't include in Report Refresh"

Status: Delivered
by ImkeF Super Contributor on ‎01-10-2017 07:58 AM

There's a bug in "Don't include in report refresh" like described here: http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Disabling-quot-Include-in-Report-Refresh-quot-works/m-p/1017...

unfortunately I didn't test correctly and this thread is closed, but the bug is still there and preventing solutions for problems like this:

http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Big-file-needs-no-update/m-p/111341#U111341

 

If the query that shall not be refreshed is not referenced by any other query or part of a UNION-operation in DAX, then everything works fine, but if it is referenced as mentioned, then it will be loaded again.

A lot of the usecases for this features are of this kind, so this bugfix is really needed !!!

Power BI Desktop Version: 2.42.4611.701 64-bit (January 2017) Installed today.

 

Login window blocked by "Working on it" spinner popup after Power BI Desktop idle in background for a bit. I didn't nail down the time but both times it was over 20 minutes. The login expires after an indeterminate amount of time of inactivity, over 20 minutes at least. Clicking publish brings up the login window but is behind the "Working on it..." popup.

I have to end the task, open Power BI, click login up in the top right corner, then I can publish.

ArcGIS not working in desktop

The ArcGIS map visual was working fine yesterday but now it doesn´t even load, it just appears blank (neither the Esri logo nor the loading bars appear on the visual). I was wondering if there is some solution for this or if it´s just a temporary thing due to some update. 

 

PS: I have the latest update (May 2017) installed and I`ve already tried clearing my data cache in options and disabling the ArcGIS preview, closing the pbi file and opening it again; Nothing seems to work.

When I use the drillthrough functionality to drill into a detailed report, it properly filters my detailed report.  However, the slicer for the same field does not display the value that I selected and shows 'All'.  The only way to clear the filter is to open up the filter pane and deselect the value I drilled on.  Typically, the users will see the filtered values in the slicers and they don't have to expand the filters pane.  

 

Please let me know if this is a bug or if this is the intended functionality.  If it's intended, I think it should be updated.

Issues in connecting to tabular model

Status: Delivered
by Wybie_TPG Visitor on ‎09-05-2017 07:51 AM

I'm encountering issues when I try to connect PBIDesktop(2.49.4831.521(x64)) or import data from our Tabular SSAS model (SQL server 2016 standard edition).

When I connect live to the model the project works fine for a little while, but after a few clicks it start giving the following error:


Error Message:
An unexpected exception occurred.

OData Error Message:
Failed to execute the DAX query.

When I want to import data it works fine for most measures and dimensions, but for some measures I get an error:

 

DataSource.Error: AnalysisServices: An unexpected exception occurred.
Details:
    DataSourceKind=AnalysisServices
    DataSourcePath=172.xxx.xxx.xx;CubeNameXX

 

The query that it tries to execute is = Cube.Transform(#"CubeNameXX",
        {
            {Cube.AddMeasureColumn, "Amount", "[Measures].[Amount]"}
        })

 

The srange thing is that we also use this measures in SSRS, without any issues, but after the PBI connection SSR Sdoesn't work either until we delete and recreate the measures. Than SSRS work fine, untill we again use PBI and the issue starts again.

 

I'm out of ideas how to solve this issue, does anyone encountered such issues befor or have ideas to solve it?

 

Many thanks!
