Creating Groups - not saving edits

I've created a Description group (hundreds of products - trying to group them by product family) and have 12 groups so far.  Is there a limit to the number of groups as when I edit to add more they do not get saved.

 

Worse case scenario, I add a column to the dataset and create families that way, but really wanted to try using the Group feature.

 

Thanks in advance,

Dawn

Re: Creating Groups - not saving edits

Thanks for the suggestion.  I checked and that's the version that I'm running.  Tried it again and still not working.  I went ahead and added a column to my table and put group names in there to use for now.

Re: Creating Groups - not saving edits

Hi,
Im having the same issue with edits to groups not saving, appears to be a bug. 

Version: 2.76.5678.782 64-bit (December 2019)
 
Create new file, Enter data > (add some data)
Edit query > New group (add a group) > Ok
Edit query > Edit group (make an edit) > Ok
Edit query > Edit group (changes made in previous edit have not saved)
 
If you save, close and reopen the file inbetween edits in the edit group window then changes are saved.

I don't see any limitation as i tried till 30 groups.

Re: Creating Groups - not saving edits

That's the reference page I was using, but when editing it's not saving the additional groups.  Everything looks fine, I click OK and they go back in and they ones past the first 12 are gone.  Very weird.

Could you share the PBIX file if it is not sensitive?

I may be able to make a file without the sensitive info.  I'll play with it tonight and see what I can do.  Thank you for your time!

Re: Creating Groups - not saving edits

@dpeacock I'm having the same issue on Version: 2.76.5678.782 64-bit (December, 2019).

Very frustrating as my groups are quite dynamic and the feature was working well until about the fall of last year. Hope they come up with a bug fix soon! You're not alone.

Groups used to work before, I tested that on Version: 2.72.5556.801 64-bit (August, 2019) and it worked.
