Calculation Groups Break Smart Narrative for Text Measures.

To recreate.

 

Insert a simple measure that returns text.

 

Measure = "Test"
 
Add the measure to a smart narrative.

Create a calculation group with a calculation item (it can be anything).

Refresh and observe that smart narrative is now broken.

Hi @lasersharks 

I don't quite understand that step where you create the calculation. Where did you create this calculation and what is the result you are trying to achieve ?

The calculation item is created using Tabular Editor. Calculation Groups are supported in Power BI but have to be created in an external tool. Creating a calculation item breaks the smart narrative if a measure returns text. Follow the steps to recreate exactly and please raise with the internal team as this is definitely a bug.
