  1. Online Report Edition resets visual interactions to default

    In Power BI when editing online a report with your own customized visual interactions, those interactions customizations are all lost, after saving it.
    The scenario can be tested by editing a report and then saving it. The strange thing is that after saving the report, the interactions still works properly, but if you visualize other reports or refresh the browser, when you check back your saved report, the custom visual interactions have been reset to the default values.

    You can watch the following animated gif, that shows the reported problem.

  2. Get Data dialog too big for screen resolution

    Choosing Get Data, then SQL Server or Azure, the Get Data dialog is too big for the screen resolution I'm using on a small laptop, remote desktop into Windows 2012 R2.The buttons at the bottom are barely visible and not readable. There is no maximize button. I cannot get to the bottom of the dialog with the mouse to resize. This is really amateur hour stuff. Flunk UX stuff. There is plenty of real estate to make the dialog smaller and more compact. If a minimum resolution is required, Desktop shouldn't install.

  3. I have an idea, if you have a number, lets say 1.7, enable recognizing that as a number. That would be awesome.

    Get Power BI to recognize numbers as numbers. Like... 1.7 or 50001.0 . How is it possible in 2016 to get a cast error in stuff like this, seriously?

    This is expected to work. Can you share more details about it?

    - Where are you applying the type conversion? Query Editor? Data/Report view?
    - What is the document locale? (You can find this in the Options dialog, under “Current File” → “Regional Settings”.
    - Do you have a consistent repro that you can share with us?

    Thanks,
    M.

  4. annotate and share of a tile snapshot instead of url in whatsapp

    We were able to share a tile snapshot in whatsapp using PBI in iOS, now it generates an url. Can you put this sharing feature back?
