KPI Visual not auto displaying the units correctly

Hi,

 

When you choose the auto on the display units in the indicator for the KPI visual, you it doesn't do anything to the indicator. You would have to choose thousands/millions manually which ruins the report, since the users are able to see data for days, months, years and so on.

Is there a solution or is it a bug?

I found a similar post with the same issue:
https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/KPI-Visual-Indicator-Display-Units-Auto-not-working/idi-p/63...

It is marked as solved which I don't think it is.

Hi,
I discovered that this only occurs when the data type is Whole Number.
If Decimal is chosen then it will display the units correctly.

Hi, if decimal is chosen with 2 decimals (or more) and thousand-separator, it is shown correctly, but if you decrease to 1 or 0 decimals it is not working (from my experience).

@MaKHThis fixed the issue for me as well. Thanks!
