PowerBI Matrix View - Can't Swipe Up/Down to Scroll?

There is a problem with Matrix View in Windows Store and iOS App. I can't Swipe to Scroll, I need to find the Scroll bar and scroll from there.


I am

on Windows 10, with Store App

on iPad 3, with IOS App

 

Is this a known issue ?

 

I don't see any one reporting this problem.

 

This has been happen for a while now, not just a recent update.

 

Regards Dat.

Yes I also can't scroll down and don't see a scroll bar in the Matrix Visualization on the iOS iPhone App.

 

I've been looking for more improvements to the PBI Desktop and that's why I had not said anything about the App.

Count yourselves lucky, on the Android App, you can't swipe to scroll and there is no scroll bar on the matrix visualization...


Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Re: PowerBI Matrix View - Can't Swipe Up/Down to Scroll?

I just installed the Windows APP and confirmed that I can't scroll in the Matrix in that app too - just like in the iOS APP.

 

However when you think about on both of those apps we are just looking at the tiles in a dashboard and even when clicking on a tile we are not actually accessing the reports as would happen on PBI online but just looking at a larger tile!

 

Therefore I would be creating an additional dashboard specifically for the iPhone APP where the information you want to see must fit in the tiles!

The latest iOS update has not improved matrix navigation on the iPad. No natural gestures or swipes - still forced to use the navigation bars which are too small. Hope this is fixed for iPad reports.

Re: PowerBI Matrix View - Can't Swipe Up/Down to Scroll?

Okay the new update added scroll bars so you can scroll up and down and left or right which is great!

 

BUT now there's another issue => if you have several Fields for the ROWs

 

Filed 1 | Field 2 | and then the columns and values

 

those 2 fields are frozen meaning when you scroll to the left they stay on the screen and you only scroll the columns area

 

this is fine but there's no landscape mode on the iPhone and you only actually see Field 1 | Field 2 | and only 1 column

 

For Example:

                                      Jan | Feb | Mar | etc......

Year | Companies |

2015   Company 1       $10  | $10 | $10 | etc....

           Company 2       $10  | $10 | $10 | etc...

Year and Companies fields are frozen so you only get to scroll the Months (which is fine)

but because there's no landscape mode you see only 1 month at a time!

 

I think they need to do 2 things with the Matrix:

1)  Matrix needs to be in Compact Form

The Matrix is currently as the original Pivot Tables used to be in Tabular Form.

If you take the example from above and convert to Compact Form it would be like this:

2015                        Jan  | Feb | Mar | etc...

   + Company 1       $10  | $10 | $10 | etc....

   + Company 2

2) Expand/Collapse buttons

 

If anyone likes this idea - I have already created a suggestion - Please Vote at:

Re: PowerBI Matrix View - Can't Swipe Up/Down to Scroll?

Agree with the above. 

 

Now I've got mine back to one fixed descriptive column, I can see that the natural gestures for swiping/moving around the matrix visualisation do indeed work in addition to the scroll bars for dashboard TILES only. If you open the underlying report with the matrix on an ipad, only the scroll bars work and not the natural gestures. These are frustrating to use when small. Anybody else seeing the same?
