Pin Visual Not Working

For some reason, pin visual has just stopped working. It was working 10 minutes ago but inexplicably it just stopped on all my reports. The icon is there but I click on it and nothing happens, seems to be the same on all reports. I have shut everything down and gone back in - same result. Even rebotted the machine and same result - has anybody come across this before?

I have the same problem. Found out that when I remove the title of the visual, it works.... (so you have to add the title in the dashboard). So this is a workaround, hopefully Microsoft fixes this issue soon!

Crazy that this still hasn't been fixed!

Agreed - this should be a simple fix for MS

I have the same issue - Every month i refresh all Visuals on the Dashboard, with new Filters - But the last week or so I have not been able to.
I even deleted the Dataset and report from PowerBi and republished - This did not help me. 

I am going to try the "Remove Title Fix" and will reply here if that solves it. 

Removing the Title solved it for me.

Yup, this is definitely a problem. We have a production dashboard that now has broken visuals due to a recent deployment and we can't update to the new visuals because the Pin to Dashboard doesnt work.

 

I'm putting in a bug report.

Current workaround is publish without a title, pin to dashboard then republish with a title and pin to dashboard again. It works, for me at least, it is deceptively time consuming though.

I'm having the same issue - tried changing settings etc but still the same as other posters - must be a microsoft issue, its so frustrating

Same issue. Have tried Edge and Chrome. Really very annoying. Definitely a Microsoft issue.

Thanks, works for me too! Just edit the report in service, toggle the Title of the visual and the pin was able to work again

Thanks for the solution. It worked for me too!!!

Thank you! I had been looking for answers on this! I hope Microsoft fix this annoying issue!

You can also just disable and then re-enable the title of the visualization in Service: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Service/Can-t-Pin-Visual-to-Dashboard/m-p/2875435#M178053

It worked, thanks for that - saved me a bunch of hassle on the 1st of the month!

Thanks for this - I've just tried it and it worked for me as well

I tried this and it worked. So bizzare. 

 

Appreciate the tip.

So - an update. Have tried using Edge and exactly the same issue. After another reboot, the pin visual is working on tables and cards (but not all) but not on any chart visuals. It will also let me pin the page (but not a chart) so all this tells me it's not a permission issue or a dataset ownership issue - starting to feel like a Microsoft problem.....

I have the same problem...  Pin works on one card, but does not work on others...  Same formatting... Seems to be a glitch...
