Dual mode



I get data with  live connection in power bi and I was trying to get another data but everything is deactivated I've seen some video and they could've done that so I dont know what's the problem,


I just want to get another data from another source as import mode but I just can not do this, could someone tell me please what is wrong.

Thank you.

@toum you are connected live to a Power BI dataset? (live, not direct query)?

Yes sorry it's live not direct!

@toum so just replace it to direct 🙂 make sure you have the latest version and maybe you need to check the preview feature is on.
Check out this doc first:

@toum it's not there, look in the preview features to make sure it'a turned on. Also it's best to read the article and watch some videos about it if it's your first time with this feature
