It is now April 10, 2017, so could you provide as estimated timeline of when "Power BI Service" with Dashboards composed of "pinned tiles" may allow "themes including background colors".
And, for that matter as well, approx when we might see "Background color theming in Power BI Desktop" to compliment the EXCELLENT "Theming preview" in the March release.
Unfortunately, we like many others are "MIS-using" PIN live "Power BI Desktop reports to Dashboards" to artificially overcome the fact that "currently" pinned tiles to create dashboards DO NOT yet allow "theming". This is not great for both us and our customers as it can be a lot of work to "REDO" a lot of work!
I believe the the Power BI service is "updated" more like weekly vs. the Power BI Desktop app is "monthly". Unfortunately, while there are many exciting new cpabilities with the PBI Desktop April release last week, we see no mention of any further enhancements to the "PREVIEW Themes" from March?
COLOR THEMES are just so "inherently prevalent" in nearly everything we do these days - from web page design to advertising and branding to even Woindows 10 THEMES - that "it's really important" to get this functioanlity in Power BI as soon as possible !
Hello, I'm still using the trial version of Power BI, but unable to see any way to set default colors for charts, or to apply custom themes / templates. Is the feature not available with the trial version? Thanks!
Having Custom (Color) Themes available in the Web Service version is important.
More so, WHY would functionality like this be available in the Desktop version, but not the Web Service version?
Same thing with changing field formats (available in Desktop but not Web).
@reddobe, you are missing a square bracket after "#DADFE1". Try this.
"dataColors": ["#1E345D", "#768591", "#F38A00", "#99CAEA", "#DADFE1"],
I am still having issues with using the JSON file for Themes in Power BI, some of the sections of the file do not work. I am simply trying to apply a theme which has a white background on the visuals and a light grey background on the page. the page visual is loaded as an image and the Border and Background should be controlled by the theme file. I have tried following advice from here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Webinars-and-Video-Gallery/How-to-create-a-Power-BI-theme-with-a-JS... but again some of the information on card names is incorrect. The documentation here doesn't give you all you need with working samples: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-report-themes.
Here is the theme file contents. can you please help?
