Cortana integration not working.

I'm trying to get Cortana working with Power BI but having little luck. As far as I'm aware the only two settings that need to be activated are:

1) Turning on Cortana for your dataset
2) Connecting your organisation account to Cortana on Windows 10.

As you can see in the screenshots below I have done this but it does not work. I have had this working in the past but have since reinstalled my PC and on setting it up again I'm having no joy. I have tried a different laptop too without luck.

Any help is much apprecaited.

Bumping this to see if anyone has any suggestions? Tried it on multiple computers with multiple users with no luck.

Re: Cortana integration not working.

You also need to add the work account to your phone (add account). As far as I can tell, it only works on W10 Desktop Editions, and windows mobile 10 when really current:


Somehow, the version numbers are somewhat confusing. My Lumia 830 says that I run OS Build 10.0.14295.1000. To make it work though, I needed to install the Windows Insider app, and install with "Insider Slow" the most current build. I did not get it to work with the current "Production" release, nor with the "Release Preview". "Insider Fast" left my phone in an endless loop rebooting and crashing.

Confusing is, even though there was a major update installed on the phone, the release version number showing in the phone remained the same. Still build 1511 with the version number above. Different software, same version number.

iOS does not allow to add a work account (yet), I have not tried on Android (yet). Has anyone got it going outside of Windows?
