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.

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.

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.

Hi Power BI Support,


I am trying to save a power bi report after making some edits in Power BI service and it is throwing the following error. I can save the report under a different name but it is a hassle to rename them later. Is the below information helpful to troubleshoot the issue?

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?

Since Jul 2018 release, we've noticied a bug when changing from one page to another with date synced slicers in "Before" and "Between" mode. It turns out that when selecting one day in page A and move to page B (which has the date slicer synced), Power BI slicer shows the following day, although it's filtering the correct dates.

In the original page (page A) the seleted date is shown correctly. 

Until Jun 2018 everything seemed fine.

Hi Team,


There seems to be a bug which is causing Line charts to go blank when we scroll on Power BI Service.

It works fine on Power BI Desktop.


I have verified that this issue is across all my reports on Service. Also, @odoardil has posted this issue on Community Portal where several other users have acknowledged this. 


On behalf of everyone, I am posting this issue here. Kindly resolve this bug ASAP as our production reports are useless due to this bug.

Power BI Service Acting Up

Status: Accepted
by winnieeo Frequent Visitor on ‎07-15-2018 10:31 PM

For the past few days, I haven't been able to see the status of my datasets (the icon that indicated whether last refresh has failed or a current refresh is going on). This makes it really difficult to tell what's going on.


Also, the default slicer which used to stay a different colour when an item is selected no longer does that. This is confusing users.

The Apply to Labels option in the Subtotals Menu for a Matrix Visual Does NOT work.

This Option has in fact never worked since it first appeared in the Matrix Preview!

This is the specific Power BI Visual published by Microsoft that is currently broken:


This was working as desired before updating to the July 2018 version of Power BI.


I use a Year slicer using the same Date field that I use for the Timeline Slicer. If I have the year 2017 selected in the Year slicer, I see all 12 months in the timeline slicer. If I then select 2018 in the Year slicer, the Timeline Slicer should update to show all months in 2018 up to the current month (August). But instead it is showing all 12 months. If I try to select a month, the timeline slicer refreshes the data/visuals on the page, but does not filter down to the selected month in those visuals. In fact even the Timeline Slicer itself refreshes, but does not indicate that you have made a selection.


If I click on another report page and then click back to this report page, the page will then update and show only the appropriate months and the Timeline slicer acts as expected. At least until I select Year 2017 in the Year slicer. Then it refreshes the visuals on the page and the Timeline slicer will only display the months through August for 2017 and similary will refresh the visuals on the page when you select a month, but does not actual filter the visuals down to that month or even indicate that a month was selected.


This was all working in previous versions of Power BI.


The top image shows the broken timeline slicer, I then switched to page 2 in the report and then back to page 1 and took a screenshot of the working slicers.


Please help!

It appears there is a bug with date slicers syncing between reports when published to  The date slicers sync correctly in Power BI Desktop.  When published to, a day is added to the date on each additional tab that is synced.  


Example: we have three tabs on a report with date slicers synced.  You select 1/1/2018 to 6/1/2018 as your date range on the first tab of the report. On each additional report tab, the date will display as 1/1/2018 to 6/2/2018.  


Troubleshooting: We have tried creating multiple different reports and publishing to All work correctly in Power BI desktop, all have the same issue of adding a day when publishing to


Sample Report Data:


Report Tab 1 where date range is entered:


Report Tab 2.  A day is automatically added to 6/1/2018 so it's now filtering from 1/1/2018 to 6/2/2018.  This also happens if you change the date on the second report tab. If I change 6/2/2018 back to 6/1/2018, the first report tab will now show 1/1/2018 to 6/2/2018.

R font size too small on PowerBI Service.

by rviana Visitor on ‎07-01-2018 05:01 PM

When I publish a report with a R chart on PB service the fonts became too small. Both in R Studio and PB Desktop seems OK.


The problem ins't with the script since i've tested with plot(dataset) only, also changing the font size on script doesn't affect PB Service.
