  1. New content pack version nag bar breaks intra-report navigation

    When a previously published content pack is updated, it will introduce a nag bar on any personalized reports that are based on that content pack. This is a grey nag bar at the top of the screen with an X to close the nag bar. This nag bar returns every time the report is opened.

    Its presence obscures the report page navigation UI. There is no way to stop the nag bar from appearing once a content pack has been updated.

    There is a forum thread about this issue here: http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Service/Organizational-content-packs-eternal-update-notification/m-p/64323#U64323

    The first thing is to realize that we see…

    • Linking Visualizations to Pages

      When Clicking on a visualization the option to be able to go to another page of the report. I know this is possible through tiles but I would like to publish the link a way that an unlicensed user is able to see it.

      • Schedule for upcoming enhancements

        Publish a schedule of planned Power BI enhancements, perhaps over the next 3 months, with the understanding that this list is not "set in stone". At the moment, we only find out about which enhancements make it after the fact.

          • Slicer Header Font Color should Match 'Options' (clear selections & dropdown)

            I have slicers with a header using a dark background/light font color, making the 'Clear selections' and dropdown list options virtually undetectable. Perhaps the default font color for these options should match the header font color... thank you.

            • Allow Microsoft Account logins

              This idea forum supports Facebook and Google single sign on systems, but not Microsoft accounts. If this forum cannot integrate with my PowerBI pro tenant account (organizational account), it should at least support MSA. Why does the Power BI ideas site need my facebook or google account credentials? Sounds fishy.

              • Signup is broken

                As part of the process to signup for Power BI, MS sends an EMail to verify your EMail address with a "Yes, that's me" link. The link goes to a "Create your account" page which says, bluntly, "We sent a verification code to {email address}. Enter the code to complete signup." Except that I have received no code and there is no mechanism to request or receive a code. THE PROCESS IS FLAWED.

                    • Can't log in with my corporate mail address

                      I was able to log in to Power BI before but I can't anymore. It seems like log in page tries to redirect but then it fails and go back to the log in page again. I had lots of work there but now I can't access any of them.

                      Do you guys have any idea how to solve this.

                      • Schedule Refresh should be enabled for Redshift data source on POWERBI Servic

                        The release in August mentioned that this feature will be added in a couple of months but it has not been added yet.
                        It would be nice to have this feature soon

                              • Microsoft Mandatory updating of COMMENTS *every* month if there are more than 1000 votes for an IDEA!

                                For popular ideas with more than 1000 votes, why are there no regular updates coming from the Microsoft product owners?

                                There are multiple comments from users asking for an update (or is that begging for an update?) with no response from Microsoft.
                                And some of these ideas have no updates for 6 months and have 3000+ votes.

                                Microsoft as the owner of each idea that is being developed on must keep *Everyone* in the loop, not just your internal teams, which is why this forum exists. You've asked for help to drive this product now be graceful for our help…

                                  • Erro ao configurar Gateway - Personal

                                    Good Morning

                                    I'm having trouble setting up the Power BI Personal Gateway. When I try to configure this information nothing appears, I only see the following message: "Wait while we check some more things" and does not leave this screen, and there is no option to proceed.
