New Widgets crash iOS

If I add one of the new widgets to a dashboard, accessing on the Iphone iOS PowerBi crashes the app. This happens on both image and text insertion. Anyone else seeing the same?

 

Iphone 6 PowerBI version 5.6

Re: New Widgets crash iOS

Thanks for posting, this is a known issue.

 

A short term fix will be available soon in the iOS app (submitted to Apple today) to prevent the crash and render an error/unsupported tile if a widget tile is detected, as currently the iOS app doesn't have support for rendering widgets.

 

We will be working on a subsequent update after that to allow the iOS app to render widgets, so keep an eye out in the near future for full widget support on iOS!

Re: New Widgets crash iOS

I had the unfortunate surprise of presenting our new dashboard to our board of directors that had never seen Power BI to date.

 

Right at the end of the demonstration, I asked all of them to open their iphone/ipads with the PowerBI app that I had installed earlier. The Text Widget caused the Power BI app to crash on most of their devices.

 

A very embarassing event !

 

Is there a page that highlights all known issues for reference purposes ?
