Dynamic Values in Smart Narrative or Text Box visual are not available


This issue appeared yesterday (27/7/21), prior to this I was able to add dynamic visuals to text box visuals. The screenshot displays the current result of entering a synonym that would normally display alternatives. The model's linguistic schema is English and I've cleared browser caches. The only thing that I know I changed yesterday was the language settings in Chrome to English (Australian). I have since changed this setting back but, the issue remains.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi, @SteveD2 

Sorry, I can't reproduce your question, please refer to the following links and note the following limitations:

The smart narrative feature doesn't support the following functionality:

  • Pinning to a dashboard
  • Using dynamic values and conditional formatting (for example, data bound title)
  • Publish to Web
  • Power BI Report Server
  • On-premises Analysis Services
  • Live Connection to Azure Analysis Services or SQL Server Analysis Services
  • MultiDimensional Analysis Services data sources
  • Key influencers visual with a categorical metric or unsummarized numerical field as 'Analyze' field from a table:
    • that contains more than one primary key
    • without a primary key, and measures or aggregates as 'Explain by' fields
  • Map visual with non-aggregated latitude or longitude
  • Multi-row card with more than three categorical fields
  • Cards with non-numeric measures
  • Tables, matrices, R visuals or Python visuals, custom visuals
  • Summaries of visuals whose columns are grouped by other columns and for visuals that are built on a data group field 
  • Cross-filtering out of a visual
  • Renaming dynamic values or editing automatically generated dynamic values
  • Summaries of visuals that contain on-the-fly calculations like QnA arithmetic, complex measures such as percentage of grand total and measures from extension schemas

@v-yalanwu-msft Hi thanks for your response. Unfortunately, it is difficult to replicate, in the team I work with, I'm the only one with the issue. What I would like to identify is why. I've read the solutions posted and they aren't really relevant to the situation I have as the issue is presenting in the Desktop version and the language setting for models is english.
