Power KPI Matrix: Can't set comparison value

Hi.

I've been facing some problemas with the Power KPI Matrix custom visualization, where I just can't set the comparison value at all.

 

I've followed the steps on the "manual", where I edit the visual through the ... box, set each measure to the correponding comparison value and click on Apply. So far, so good, as the preview shows the visual as it should be (with the comparison value and the indicator that I've set up). The problem is that when I choose / click "Return to report" all settings are lost, and no comparison value is shown. I tried hiting [ESC], but then the visual bugs out, minimizing the edit section and preventing me from actually exiting it (I need to delete the visual and start over).

When I try to edit the visual again, it's all blank, as if I've never done anything before.

 

I believe that it is a problem introduced by some new version of the Power BI Desktop (mine is version 2.64.5285.741 64-bit), as it worked before. Unfortunately, I don''t know when it started to happen, as my previous reports (already set up) works (but I can't enter the edit section anymore, as entering it clears the comparison values).

 

Is there any workaround for this problem?

Re: Power KPI Matrix: Can't set comparison value

It seems the latest version has not been loaded. Do you have a stable internet connection?

Please try to load the latest package from AppSource and import it into your report.

 

As a workaround you can apply setting but do not close the panel.

Just press save and reboot the report.

Re: Power KPI Matrix: Can't set comparison value

Can you share a few screenshots to understand this issue better?

 

We recently released a new version of Power KPI Matrix that improves Settings. Probably there might be a bug.

Re: Power KPI Matrix: Can't set comparison value

We confirm this regression. It will be fixed soon.

 

Meantime, we have a workaround. If you click Edit and chnage Column Mapping please Save the report w/o closing Edit mode.

It will save column mapping properly.

Re: Power KPI Matrix: Can't set comparison value

Thanks for your promptly reply, and sorry for not attaching any pictures before (I'm attaching them now, in this post, just for future references).

 

Also, thanks for the workaround, I confirmed it works fine, but I'll just add one piece of information for anyone else who might face the same problem: affter setting things up, do not click "Return to report", save your report and close the file. After reopening it, the visual will be set up correctly.

 

Yeah, it's bothersome remembering to close the report everytime, but at least it is doable.

 

Thanks again.

Re: Power KPI Matrix: Can't set comparison value

Thanks for confirming the workaround.

 

We already fixed this issue (it was related to single line) and we are testing it now.

Please expect a new version in about a week because deployment takes some time.

Re: Power KPI Matrix: Can't set comparison value

Hi there.

 

I've updated the visual with the 2.2.1.0 version (stated as updated on December 07th) but the "forgetful" behavior persists, as in when I enter the edit section and return to the visual, all settings as lost.

 

Am I missing something or were I too rushed on updating the visual?

Re: Power KPI Matrix: Can't set comparison value

This is expected behavior because 2.2.1.0 has not been deployed to production yet.

 

It will be available on 12/25/2018.

Ah, ok, sorry. I think I was too eager to get the update.

 

So it will be a chrismas gift, huh? Nice, looking forward to it.

I am using version 2.2.1.0, although it has a release date of 12/7/2018, and it continues to exhibit the described behavior.
