  1. Restate Dashboard Name During Sharing Workflow

    Unless I'm missing it, I would suggest you restate the name of the dashboard that the user is within when they are going to share it out with someone else so they can confirm during this workflow step if they indeed are in the dashboard they really want to share out. I currently do not see this name repeated in this workflow.

    THANKS!

      • resource limitations not alligned between O365 and Power BI

        After a conversation with a Microsoft engineer via a service request it seems that a time-out came from O365 and not from Power BI.
        The data refresh time-out for O365 powerpivot workbooks is set to 30 minutes while for Power BI datasets it is 1 hour. Actually reading the data sources into the workbook/datasets only takes 10 minutes, the rest is model processing.
        The 3 issues I encountered with the powerpivot workbook on O365 are:
        - Give more detail on error messages: the Power BI error message didn't give any hint whatsoever that the issue was in O365 and not…

              • Pinned live page not interactive on mobile

                I have a dashboard with a pinned live page. Everything is fine on the web but on the mobile version (tested on Android only), the live page is not interactive. If I click on any visuals, it drills down to the actual report.

                    • Bug in new CRM Online Content Pack

                      The "Top Open Opportunities" visualization from the content pack does not actually have a filter for "Status = Open" hence it shows Lost and Won opportunities as well.

                                  When searching Bing for example, let the user select what they want on their dashboard. For example, I want the actual Seahawks schedule, not the Bing search results for Seahawks schedule.

                                      I need to reproduce a measure that I defined in SSAS as:

                                      (1+([Date].[Date].currentmember.PREVMEMBER, [Measures].[Cumulative Profit]))*(1+[Measures].[Profit])-1
