Re: How to disable the automatic inline hierarchy???

Thanks @LanceDelano! Seems, last service build 13.0.1605.489 works exactly as you promised!

 

But i'm have some question about buttons image quality. (see picture. This screenshot was made from Edge with 200% zoom)

Re: How to disable the automatic inline hierarchy???

@Tishchenko Looks like you've got field on x-axis as type Text otherwise if you drop date field onto x-axis you usually get drill down in form of Year -> Qtr -> Month -> Day. You can disable that feature by going to File -> Options and Settings -> Options -> Data Load and untick time intelligence feature as shown below.

Re: How to disable the automatic inline hierarchy???

Hi @ankitpatira, this option "Auto Date/Time alredy disabled in my PBIX.

 

Look at this video, how this new "cool" fiture broke all of my reports 

(before this update, drill works ok!)

Re: How to disable the automatic inline hierarchy???

HI. 

 

I always try to think positively about change. The new in-line hiearchy feature will bring possibilities that we didn't have before, but it is taking away some we already have and like. 

 

I know many workarounds to solve the problem in my chart below, but I dont't have only one like this.

 

One problem I see is changing the Power BI Online Service in a way that the visuals start presenting different views and numbers is not a good practice.  We are caught off guard in the middle of a presentation with numbers we are not expected to see... I mean numbers, because this new in-line hieararchy group information that previously where separated.

 

When releasing such a feature, I recommend making it in a way that the previous view is kept and we can have the new view if we like. It is not that hard. Imagine, in this case, a new Drill Down button is added that goes in-line hierarchy, but we stil have the expand all button behaving the same way before...

 

Now I have many charts to adjust to this new way of drill down.

 

I believe in features that add new options, but do not replace good options broadly used.

Please fix this, adding a new button to opt between normal or in-line drill down.

I can't agree more. The PowerBI dev team is asleep at the wheel if they don't understand this.
