TEXT on Streaming Tile

Why can't I show streaming TEXT on a dashboard tile?


All I want to show is Date, Time, and Service Status on a tile but MS Power BI won't let me.  Has this been requested?  Can I vote it up?

Hello Power Bi Team, This is a very useful feature and I am not sure why this has not been implemented since such a long time.  Any updates on why it is not posible and how can be achieved?



I have also voted for the idea! More functionality for streaming tiles is needed!

Hi Chas

It couldn’t support showing streaming TEXT on a dashboard tile, someone has already created an idea about this and you could vote it




I voted it up.  It's been a request since Nov 2016....


Still not sure why this isn't allowed. Why does MS care if I show 123 or ABC on a streaming tile?


Without this feature I have to jump though hoops to get Real-Time TEXT onto my dashboard and because I'm forced to use a hybrid, I have to delete rows which results in horrible flashing on the dashboard.


MS - Please allow us to stream TEXT.
