Ask a question about your data?

Hi I have published my report from PowerBI Descktop and created a dashboard. But 'Ask a question about your data' doesn't work. it keeps showing me the following message?

 

We weren't able to load suggestions right now. Please try again later.

 

What could be a reason for that?

Re: Ask a question about your data?

If you are using direct query option for Azure SQL, then Q&A will not work. Please refer to below post.

Re: Ask a question about your data?

What is your data source for your dashboard? Is it from on-prem or cloud.

Re: Ask a question about your data?

My data come from a SQL Server in Azure. Is there any specific setting for that?

Re: Ask a question about your data?

When I get my data in PowerBI descktop, I don't select the direct query option, but I write SQL Statmemt under Adavanced Option section. Is this considered as DirectQuery?

Re: Ask a question about your data?

Can we hide/remove the "Ask a question about your data" feature from the dashboard?

Re: Same Question

Hello Apoorvu,

 

Please go to the right top corner of your dashboard  -> ' more options' ->'Settings' , then disable the Q&A.

 

Let me know if this answers your question.
