The Power BI Q/A feature is not supported now in Power BI Service since yesteday?

Hi Team,


I have one of my prod report using the Q/A functionality but yesterday we realized that Q&A visual is not working on the Power BI service.The way it used to work earlier was by enabling allow Q/A settings by going onto the dataset of the published  report.


But today the option is no longer available , we tried republishing the report , we also tried deleting the report and the dataset and redeploying it on dev workspace, but the option to enable it is not available.

This is what we can see now at the dataset settings but earlier the Q/A options was there to be checked.



Does Mirosoft has any update on this ? Please help !!! or Do i need to submit a support  ticket to them ?


Thanks and Regards,

Hi @kumar27 ,


I am going to be a bit semantic-al here.  The Q&A feature is on the Dashboard.  It is found on the top of the screen and some visuals do not support it.

Here is where it is on the dashboard:

In Desktop, there is also now a Q&A visual that you can add to the report.


The screenshot that you show is from the Dataset Settings and I am assuming that you mean the "Featured Q&A Questions " options in the Dataset Settings area:

If that feature does not appear at all, my assumption is that the Q&A is turned off in the Admin Settings:
