I recently started using the card browser, it is an amazing visual and is very powerful. I have noticed however that at times it will not appear in the mobile application. When the app refreshes it just kind of vanishes, is there any way you can take a look? It always comes up in the desktop app, but is missing in the mobile app.

I'm looking to style the Attribute Slicer (not normal Slicer).  I can't find any documentation on the naming and attributes that I can modify for this element.  Any help appriciated.

We embedded visul Gantt ( in the dashboard and sent it to the corporation's local gateway and configured automatic update, but later from the first update the visual data does not appear on the screen. Has anyone experienced this same problem? How could I resolve this, please?

Hello.  I'm having an issue with burry text in the Card Browser visual.  When clicking on a card to expand the card, the front of the card text is blurry in the online app and sharepoint embed.  It is not blurry in the desktop.  When you select the back of the card view, the text is not blurry.  Is there a setting or a ticket that relates to this so the text is no longer blurry?


"Text filter"


The visual Text filter will not be depreicated. We will continue supporting this visual.
The in-product message will be removed.



Good morning @Ranin. It looks like the visualization has been removed from AppSource and is again showing the deprecation warning. Please advise. I have reopened my case.

The visual will be back again to AppSource on Wednesday and the message will be removed.

We will still be providing support for this visual.


Thanks for the feedback.

"Text Filter"

This has been a very useful visual for me in my various Power BI report. However, I recently noticed an "alert" on this visual, saying it is not supported. can you please update the visual to the latest interface? 


Else, is there an alternate visual for this? I know the Slicer has similar functionality.

Hi all,


I encountered the same issue as described above, I reached out to Ranin from Microsoft and got the following reply;




I would love to believe this, but if this is true an immediate post here and on other community forum posts indicating this would be great. Until there is official notification I don't think anyone can rely on that message.

I spoke with support and the product team yesterday and was advised it was definitely going away.

Hi BamDastard,

I am not working for MS so there no guarantees from my side, besides that it is my genuine email message and here reply. She is a Product Manager associated with PowerBI / Visualisations (see the top of this page). I informed my customer about the reply but ofc will keep on checking whether it indeed keeps on working.

I did just receive a call and follow up email from support on my open ticket confirming that the Text Filter will not be deprecated! So, all confirmed now!


Thank you, @tjvbi for posting this exchange! Now if we can just get someone to send out that confirmation to the community...



Absolutely, I don't doubt the email exchange is real and appreciate you posting it. I would just like to see, if that decision has been made from the product team, some official communication. That is targeted to the product team, not you. This has caused quite an uproar.

We have this visual in many of our enterprise reports. What is the impact to those existing reports published to the service after this has been deprecated? Will the reports load with the visual just showing an error? How can we collect all of our reports that have been published with this visual to replace it?

We deploy Power BI embedded to hundreds of Airlines around the world, this is a key visual for our users.

Couldn't agree more. This visual is critical to our reports because the alternative search feature set available using drop downs is horribly non-user friendly. The base format of a search box has always been a form of a simple text filter. It's baffling to me that a modern system could be implemented without one. This will be a huge blow if we can't find an alternative. 

Agree we use it in most of our reports and don't have any alterative. It isn't the most performant or feature rich visual but it is the best we have.


I wish there was a native integration with Cognitive Search in Power BI.

I enjoy Gantt 2.2.3 very much but I do need help with an improvement. For some reason the "End Date" does not give the normal options for a date visual field. I have attached a document showing the difference between the "Start Date" & "End Date" fields (First Screenshot). Second Screenshot shows a discrepancy between the raw data and what comes into the visual for Sch Finish DateTime (My data field). I'm assuming that the issue on Second Screenshot of the attached may solve the issue, otherwise I may need help with that as well.


To verify the issue was with the data field on the visual I dragged the Sch Start DateTime field being used in the Start Date field and still was not given the normal options of showing the date or the date heirarchy (this is the normal behavior when date fields are used on visuals.

For the Gantt 2.2.3 visualization, when I try to customize the format of the date that shows on the tooltip, there is an issue where when I try to format the date as 'MM/YYYY' the month always shows as 0. The only time I can get the month to show up successfully is by simply typing 'M' but then it only shows the month and date and not the year. Anytime I try to show month and year in the tooltip, the month zeroes out. The default format of the tooltip is no good either because it shows time. I'm just trying to ge it to show "MM/YYYY" for the tooltip. 

It works in my report using 2.2.3. Although, I have to write "MM/yyyy" (y's in lower-case). Could this be due to issue with how the localization is set up for you?
