Forecast only works for single line?

I have a PBIX that contains a single line chart with time series on the X axis.  When I select a single product as a single line on the chart, the formatting feature works.  I have 2 issues.

 

1.  Although I can see the forecast lines into the future, I cannot see the values, even though I have turned on data labels.  I can see the values for the actuals, but no values for the forecasts.  Even if I go into focus mode, I can't "see data".  Yet if I "export data", the values are there.  

2.  If I add product to the legend (so there are say 2 lines), the forecasting stops working.

 

Are the things working as designed, or a bugs?

Hi @MattAllington,

 

Q1: Yes, current power bi not support display the data label of trend line.


Q2: Based on test, when I add the legend to line chart, it still shows the trend line of total value, it can't analytics the trend line of each legend.

 

I think these issue more related to features, you can post them to ideas.
