Hey @MiguelMartinez I have yet to use custom vizualizations. What file within the zip do I specifically need to rename to a PBIX file?

 

Thanks in advance,

Christian

Hi @cosborn1231,

 

You need to rename the whole zip file to pbix.

 

Cheers

Miguel

When I use the sample pbix, it works but limits me to 10,000 records at a time?  How do I get around this?  I remember the demo showing many more than 10,000 items at a time.  Any assistance is appreciated!  Also, I did download and update pbi desktop to the March release.

Current version of Power BI Desktop caps it at 10,000. In the April update you will have to view all the data in the sample file.

Looking forward to this update.  Some of my biggest challenges with current PBI functionality, are the limitations put in place.  These should be configurable by end-user, and not set as "hard stop limits" in the tool!

@MiguelMartinez can we get some guidance on this?

Please hang tight

Data for Everyone! We mean it

If it helps, the table I'm working with has the following columns:

 

JobOrderNumber (text)

AccountKey (text)

DurationWeeks (whole number)

Status (text)

StatusReason (text)

BillRate (decimal)

CreatedOn (date)

BusinessUnit (text)

Latitude (decimal, latitude category)

Longitude (decimal, longitude category)

City (text, city category)

State (text, state category)

 

...and a couple of measures. Counts, average bill rate, yadda-yadda. I loaded all of those fields into the Values slot in a SandDance visual and got nothing but squares.

Is it in Power BI Desktop? Could you send the pbix file using the 'Send a Frown/Smile' feature in Power BI Desktop?

I can, but here's a funny story first: I build this stuff off a sql server, so I remote in using Citrix, build my BI files there, then publish. My email isn't set up there, so I saved the file locally in order to send a frown. When I opened it from my computer SandDance worked perfectly. I checked and I'm running the newest version of Power BI Desktop on both machines. All I can figure is that the server must just be too crappy to handle SandDance. Are there some higher system requirements for this visual than for Power BI Desktop in general?

I must be missing something. When I try to use this on one of my tables it shows nothing but some grey squares. Are there some specific requirements that need to be present in your table to make this work? I have some numeric columns, some text, longitude and latitude, what am I missing?

This zip doesn't contain a .pbix file.

@brooks232 you have to rename it to .pbix 🙂
