Report page tooltip issue

Very nice feature BTW.


I know this is in Preview but here is an issue i have spotted this morning.


For the Table Visual such as below, this is operating properly (filtering) in Desktop but this is not in PowerBI Service. I have tried with another formatting for the Tooltip same. And I also had this Report Page tooltip working on another report. Now, writting this report: the report where it's failing is Live Query On Prem SSAS. The one where it works, is On Prem, Import, SQL Database.

We have a Power BI daily status report that is published to the power bi service and shared with users.  Users subscribe to the main report page to receive a daily status update via email.


The report was edited in the Power BI Desktop service to add a new visual on the main page. The name of that page was not changed. After the report was published to the Power BI service, users stopped receiving the daily email update. When they signed onto Power BI service to view their subscription status, they now see the word "Draft" next to the repport page name. The only fix is for them to delete that subscription and then resubscribe to that page.


This is tremendously inconvenient-- we need to be able to edit our reports without breaking subscriptions.

For the last 30 minutes it has not been possible to show reports in the service. They are just loading and never finishes. I have tried with reports from different sources, so the problem is in the Power BI Service. 


Can someone fix this ASAP? I'm based in northern europe.

We have an issue where we have the correct dates in Power BI desktop and when publishing to everything is correct. When we then refresh the model all the dates are changed and moved one date back(see picture). The field is a date field in a fact table. When we refresh the data in Power BI Desktop the dates does not change only when we refresh on

Hi Guys, 


This morning i was able to login and publish my file to the Power BI web service; this afternoon i downloaded the latest January update and since then i am unable to login to the Desktop app. I get the message "Unable to login. Details: One or more errors have occured". Thats it. Any advice? I cant reset my password for my BI account as it is connected to my Microsoft Account, re-installing has not fixed. Clearing my permission/cache has not fixed. 


Many thanks

Please your help to solve this problem.

I've noticed that the right-click drill-through is no longer working in published reports.     The menu doesn't appear on right-click.      It was working fine last week I believe


It works as expected in Desktop and also PBIS



Many of our users rely on the drill-though functionality to view line level detail


Hopefully it can be corrected soon

We have an web application with embed (via iframe) PowerBI reports. Last week we took an issue with "..." menu on all visuals:

1. Chrome - menu does not appear at all.

2. Safari - menu appears for 1-2 ms

3. IE - works fine Smiley Happy


In PBI Desktop and at all works correctly with all browsers.

Yesterday I installed the latest PBI Desktop update for January 2018 - the second one for January.


Now, when I Edit Queries and create a new table, then try to apply those changes, the "Apply Query Changes" step gets stuck on the "Creating connection in model" step. It never finishes.


I have reverted to the earlier (12th Jan) version and it works fine. 


Has anyone else seen this?

I dont know if I am aloen in this persistens issue I have.


I tend to update reprots daily and change the datasoruces to refresh  standard reports with new inputs. 


When I open a report from a directory, PowerBi will save that file nt tto the directory from which it was opened (As does Excel and most other desktop apps) instead it will save the file back to the last location it used from a  previous saved report 


I have to remember that PowerBi will try and do this and then "save as" to the original directory that the current report came from


When I forget , I then get reports saved in the worng directories


Can this be fixed so that PowerBI "remembers" where the current report being edited cames from and defaults to saving back to its original  location


If I am doing somehting peculiar or there is a fix for this already I would much appreciate any pointers or help as this bug can be frustrating and time wasting

Relationship Display is not saving changes

Status: Needs Info
by DQuigg Frequent Visitor on ‎11-14-2017 11:11 AM

Is the relationships display in Desktop supposed to save the current position.  In other words, if I drag the hierarchy the way that I want, isn't it supposed to save it?  I seem to get constant issues where I clean up the display only to come back in and it is all hosed up.  Sometimes it seems to save it properly.  What am I missing? I had the one below all nicely laid out and then come back in later and it is all messed up per below.

Users starting reporting that their Analyze in Excel feature is not working anymore in Power BI. The organization is heavily dependent on the reports and due to this feature being stopped working, we are facing severe issues. 

Please help any MSFT member.

I just wanted to check on subscription emails and whether they've been changed.

Are they now being sent from ? 

Is the rendered image now removed permanently? We've stopped receiving it. The subscription now has a gray box and the attached image only.

Unable to use attribute slicer after uploading to server

Status: Needs Info
by jdorner New Member ‎01-22-2018 03:59 AM - edited ‎01-22-2018 05:35 AM

Using Attribute Slicer in desktop PowerBI works just fine, but when i upload the slicer (with or without graphics attached), it just comes up blank showing only the category of data i selected. I can neither view nor select anything. The data in graphs still shows up as in the desktop document, but i have no option to change anything.


Is this a problem on my end? I have tried running both the December 2017 and January 2018 version, none work.

Whenever I try to add new data to the model in DirectQuery mode I receive the error stating "Sequence contains more than one element", which makes no sense and there isnt really anything online that would suggest a workaround. I assume it just means Power BI Desktop is broken.


If I rollback to previous version I have no problem. Although I have to rollback 2 versions as the January update had it's own problems with DirectQuery. I want to use functionality in February version, so quite frustrating to be uninstalling and reinstalling versions just to add data to my model.


Have sent a frown and it states that it is a known problem being worked on. Would like an update here.
