Why do I not have a pin next to the Q&A box after entering a question? I can't pin the answer to a dashboard if I don't have a pin icon. What am I doing wrong? I reviewed the Natural Language Queries video several times and the pin icon is there, but I don't see it on mine when I'm logged into powerbi.com.

Here's what the lab asked me to do:
Let's try the natural language query feature and create a few visualizations for your dashboard.
- Type the question "What is year to date sales" in the text box for Q&A.
- Pin the answer to VanArsdel Sales dashboard.
I entered "What is year to date sales" and got the answer, but there's no pin icon. I finished the lab without pinning the answers as requested in items 2, 4, and 8.
I've moved on Exercise 2 but when I try to Share the dashboard (missing the pinned answer tiles) I do not have a Share button to click, only Cancel. I'm assuming the same issue causing the issue above is causing this one as well.

@dianacris hmm. I just downloaded the same PBIX file, loaded it into my workspace and don't have the same issue.
Do you have a free license or Pro?
And have you made sure you are on the latest desktop version?
Just trying to figure out why it would be different...

I'm using the free version and I do have the latest version of the desktop. I feel like there's some permissions issue here that I'm not aware of because this is just bizarre.

I too am having this same problem, I can't pin Q&A to dashboard. I had a message to " try to Power BI Pro for 60 days"; I clicked on it. Now under Datasets/Data Source Creditials it says, " Your data source can't be refreshed because the credentials are invalid, please update you credentials and try again. Then when I hit edit credentials/Sign in, the system just keeps churning. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing here, but I definitely don't get any option to pin my Q&A. Please advise on this. Thanks,

As you can see below, I'm not given the option to pin my Q&A. I had the Free version and my Q& A looked like this below and I couldn't refresh. So when I saw a pop up to "Try free Power BI Pro for 60 days, I did it. Now it shows "edit credentials" below, and when I click on that it just keeps churning...no results. Any ideas how to proceed with getting the pin next to my question?

The screenshot you are sharing is for Gateway connection. You can Pin the visual by clicking on Pin Visual icon:
