New Idea

I have an idea: return to the old login

Status: Declined
by Ricardo Member on ‎02-21-2019 03:18 AM



as a MS fan and PBI lover, i must say i truly hate the actual login in foruns.


Just a quick example: now, when i arrive home, i can't do a simple login here or on PUG foruns, because you want the organizational email, but, my organzation doesn't want to implement the necessary to allow me to do login on my personal laptop or even profissional laptop, so i admit i have to configure VPN or connect to my Organizational Virtual Machine.


But the fault is not on my organization, is on Microsoft. 


I truly don't know what the He11 you were thinking... I don't see any advantage on this way of login'in....

I'd like to setup conditional formatting for a gantt chart, so each task is associated with a specific color. This would be based off the category that the task falls within. So as an example, any tasks associated with Phase 1 would be green, any tasks associated with Phase 2 would be orange, any tasks associated with Phase 3 would be red, so on and so forth. And as people enter in additional tasks to the phase they are involved in, those tasks would be color coded accordingly.


Can anyone help me with this? I figured out how to manually adjust each task, but I'd like to automate this process.


The visual I'm using is the gantt chart by MAQ Software, as I found this one to be the most user friendly.


Appreciate any assistance you can provide.

Flow map custom visual not working

Status: Declined
by dcresp Member on ‎02-05-2018 07:34 PM

The flow map custom visual in PBI Desktop was working yesterday but does not work today. I have tried the flowmap 1.2.6 example file and can also not get this working. Everything worked fine yesterday. I expect that changes to PBI have caused this.

Power Update has been working flawlessly updating PowerBI pbix files. However, as of the October PowerBI desktop update, all refreshes are now failing. Opening PowerBI desktop and refreshing is fine as usual. 

After Power Update was updated it started work but duration of refresh became much more longer (25 min instead of 4 min). 
Can you please review this issue? This is a critical issue for us.

HierarchySlicer Copy/sync Bug

Status: Declined
by SQLMonger Frequent Visitor on ‎03-06-2019 01:53 PM

This error can be repicated by copying a HierarchySlicer component from one page to another.
When prompted to Sync the slicer across pages or not, choosing "Yes" will result in the error.
The component is copied, but no sync between the original and the copy is set up.

Based on the fact that the HierarchySlicer does not show up in the Sync Slicers panel, it must not be capable of being synchronized. It would be better if the paste operation could determine this and let you know instead of blowing up. Better yet, enable sync on the HierarchySlicer.


Details from the error submission report:

Sharewinfo Organization Chart - issues

Status: Declined
by jmontgo Occasional Visitor on ‎09-13-2018 11:32 AM

There are a number of issues I run into with this visualization. It is a great tool but in order to use it for business, the following fixes are needed to perform:


- removing the watermark

- increasing the record limit to 5,000 (or more)

- only displaying the highest level upon opening the visualization, and then opening child records one level at a time when selecting an expansion under a single record

- retaining the last saved view when the file/visualization is opened

- ability to search for a record in the hierarchy without using a filter, and seeing all parent records over the record

I am not sure if this is the right forum to raise this issue I have found.


I have downloaded the Slim data bar KPI from the Marketplace. The issue is that it will not show any additional datapoint that I add to the tooltips. The visual only show the default tooltip data point & ignore any other data points I add to the tooltips list.

I am using a Ring Chart to show a count of Process Impacts effecting a group of projects.  As more Process Impacts are added to the data, the chart updates with those new Impacts and assigns new default colors.  That is all fine expect that I want to avoid a certain color from ever being used when my charts are refreshed with updated data.  Adding a function to either "lock" a set of colors to be used or specify a color(s) to not be used, would be very helpful on 'count' visuals that will change on refresh. 


If anyone has a suggestion for a different visual to use, for my particular situation, I would love to hear it.

We have implemented the User List visual by CloudScope which has worked well since January.  Just resently the visual is changed or updated and we are not able to visualize any data. If we change the visual to a table we can see that it contains data but the User List looks empty and is missing the formatting choice under the paintbrush.


We then tried to create a new user list after updating the visual and it appears as it works just fine untill we try to change the font size of the text on the visual, then the visual is blank(see picture below). We tried to change the font size back to get the data back but that did not work.

Box and Whisker Plot Problem

Status: Declined
by CarlosUrbina Visitor on ‎02-13-2018 04:40 PM

The number of samples in a Box and Whisker Plot (Jan Pieter) does not match the number of actual samples in the underlying table.

I have a well-documented Visio file that describes the details.

How can I include that file in a post?

This my first post and I am also new to PowerBI.

Issue with Custom Hierarchy slicer

Status: Declined
by manjirit Regular Visitor on ‎01-17-2018 11:12 AM

I am using the custom visual Hierarchy Slicer. I noticed that it works ok upto 4 levels of hierarchy. But when I drag in the fifth level of heirarchy, it messes up everything. It takes away some of the Level 1 Items. 


I tried pulling in Level 5 first onto the slicer and then Level 1,2,3,4 above it, it again messes up the levels. Shows some Level 2 and 3 under Wrong Level 1. 


Very problematic!
