Hi @raymond,

If you're referring the switch added in Desktop's November release, it is used for testing packaged updates to custom visuals that are already published in AppSource, as Power BI always serves the published version of a known visual by default.

This switch temporarily overrides that and allows developers to confirm new functionality is packaged correctly prior to submission.

It is documented in the blog post, but here's the direct link to the article they link to

Regards,

Daniel

Thank you @dm-p 

 

By the way. Is there a way to work on power bi with something like a similar developer mode. My use case is, that I am working with large data sets. It would be easier to have a reduced data set during maintenance. Any idea how to achieve that quickly?
