Re: Almost done Loop

hi, @koaya75 

I have test on my side, it works well. If you try it in another browser? or clear browser cache and try it again.

and if you could try it in a new report?

Re: Almost done Loop

I was able to reproduce the problem! Yes!!! So the problem is When you have a report with 2 tabs Take example - Tab 1: list of employee - Tab 2: employee details - Drilltrough enabled via employee - Tab2 hidden. If you publish the report in powerbi service: - Go to the workspace and go to tab 1 (only visible), drillthrough to 1 employee details, want to go back to tab 1 ok - Update the app, go to the app, do the same: message loading data and then perpetually almost done… Now if I unhide the tab 2, everything works fine. So the problem is linked to this hidden tab and only occurs in the app. It worked well till 14.08.19 9h GMT+2, as I demonstrated it to a colleague. And by next try about 3 hours lated, it didn’t work anymore.


A case is open at power bi support

We are also experiencing this issue when using drill-through on hidden tabs.  When we click on the "home" page in the left-hand link after drilling down we get the endless "Almost done..." loop.   If the back button is used no problems result.


Once we unhide the tabs, the app seems to work fine with using the left-hand page links.


Thanks @koaya75 for logging this.

Re: Almost done Loop

Hi all,


It doesn't work if you have the new look activated and checked "New navigation builder". if you go back to the previous aspect, it works fine.

Thansk @carlospn ; with my testing, turning off the New Navigation Builder fixed it -- I could still have the New Look On.  Thanks for the heads-up on the New Navigation Builder option.


Hopefully it is fixed soon; I do like the new navigation builder.   Thanks again @carlospn !

A case is actually open as Microsoft was able to reproduce it. I'll inform when I have news
