New Idea



I am using Power BI Professional in the UK and finding that the display of published dashboards on the web is very slow compared to the normal experience. Is anybody else having this issue? All the other websites I commonly visit pop up quicly so I dont think it is my internet connection,



The third argumant in PATH item can be INTEGER or TEXT:





However, IntelliSense underlines INTEGER, even though it is accepted and results in valid DAX:

Since July 25th the daily scheduled updates of my Lithium community content pack is failing with the error

"We expected a CountOrCondition value."

I've already deleted and re-connecting and granting auth again via OAuth2 on our community, but no luck.

Also colleagues of mine - including the community admin - are running into the same issue. So we can already rule out a permission problem on community side.


Curious if the PowerBI community team can still use the Lithium Content pack with this community themselves, @chass & @MindyJ

I am unable to pin a visualization (line and stacked column chart) to a dashboard in Power BI online.


I was able to pin the dashboard before adding a custom theme to my report, and am receiving the following error message now:

I cannot plot data using python. Seems like a localisation problem, comma is used instead of full stop as a decimal separator in a matplotlib function.

1) When republishing an existing report to our v2 workspace we get a 500 error and are unable to publish. deleting the report and associated dataset from the workspace unblocked us and we were able to publish.


2) Now that we've published an app from the workspace, we are unable to publish new reports to the workspace. Unpublishing the app and then republishing the app is not an option as the app is already distributed to 100 people.


3) when going to the schedule refresh page of a dataset someone else published, in the preview workspace, the "Take Over" button give an error as well.

Power BI Service Filter vs Desktop (CSS bug?)

Status: Accepted
by ksabi Frequent Visitor on ‎07-16-2018 01:26 AM



Since the last week, i have noticed that the hehavior (css Style) of my filters on power bi service has changed. 

The problem is illustrated in the image below : 

Power BI filter Bug.png


In PBDesktop, the selected item in my filter is in black. I had the same behavior on Power BI Service but, since the last week the back-ground color of the selection has disappeared.  


I remeber i had the same issue last year.

Yesterday everything was working fine. This morning (11-07-2018) an update to the Power BI Service has broken the new Custom Tooltips (using tabs as Tooltips) along with the Horisontal Slicers/Buttons which are yet again broken.


Microsoft please fix as soon as possible! This is yet another example of how an update to the Power BI Service that we as customers have no way of preventing breaks our current production reports.

Merge Columns Issue

Status: Needs Info
by wonga Established Member on ‎08-07-2018 10:54 AM

Using the latest version of Power BI Desktop (July 2018), when I merge two columns together, the other values don't seem to exist anymore.


For example, I have a column of date time values (e.g. 1/1/2018 12:00:00AM). I add a few columns that extract the month and year of this date time column.


As a result, I get two columns: name of month and year. I then do some formatting actions (extracting characters and uppercase).


I then merge the two columns together. I expect to see a list of MonthYear values (e.g. JAN18, FEB18, etc.). However, I only see 1 MonthYear value instead of what I expected (12 or more) when trying to filter.

For some reason some of my reports (published about 1,5-2 weeks ago) has suddenly a change in background color on the report canvas from the background color I have set in the PBIX to a dark grey + the background surrounding the report canvas has also gotten this dark grey color. It has also happened to some of the visualizations bakgrounds for one of the published  reports. 


I have not made any changes to the PBIX or in the service since publishing these files, so this seems to be a bug.

Something that's annoyed me for a while is that each month after installing the PowerBI Desktop monthly update, the icon disappears from the shortcut I have pinned to my taskbar in Windows 10.  To fix it I have to unpin PowerBI from the taskbar and then pin it again and drag it back into the preferred position.  This happens every month.  Can something be done to stop this happening?


Regards, David
