I am using the "Timeline Slicer" visual and on 04/09 it does not show me data. There is a way to force them to show. (Understanding that this date is a holiday in the US)

I've built a solution to show the actual and the target. These numbers are in %. Then, the visual calculates the KPI status comparasion doing the percentage between both values but not the differente.

For example:

Value: 80%

Target: 90%


Expected comparision value: 80%-90%=-10%

Here how the dashboard does the calculation: (80-90) / 90 = -11%


Do you know if the calculation method can be changed?

Hi everybody, 

I've recently created a custom visual that displays revenue produced over a 5 year period segregated by a certain company's assets.

The visual shows the variance year over year as well as the overall trend of revenue.

I created a dashboard that utilizes the chiclet slicer v1.6.3. I have it deployed on a PBI Service environment and I just noticed that when I hover over the slicers it now shows a tooltip? However I don't see any way to actually configure a tooltip in the visual settings. Am I missing something here? 


Seems to be resolved now as I no longer see the tooltip 🙂

I am working on a power BI project that requires the network navigator visual, I have about 3000 nodes and whenever I reach the 1000 mark the dashboard stops updating. I updated the Max nodes in the layout accordingly and I can also see the hard limit set in the github repo has been increased to 30000. I was wondering if I could get some help on this. Is it possible that the visual on the microsoft store has not been updated to accept the new value of 30000. Thanks

Hi Community / @Ranin ,


Lately we encounter issues with the Text Filter Visual from Microsoft. You need to type in twice the text you are searching for before it actually works. Is this a known bug that is being looked at?



Hi, indeed the first time I type in text, it empties itself.

Changing the text afterward however works fine.


Other issue, I'm merging multiple related PBI into one.

I use "Text Filter" in multiple pages, each using their own query. For some reason the search seems broken now, always returning the full dataset. That visualization doesn't have any "Sync slicer" options, so this seems very weird.


Do you know of any alternative visual?

OK I did some more troubleshooting

It seems that copy/pasting between Power BI's broke the field config, simply removing it and selecting back the same field fixed it. 😑

Good Afternoon, 


I have one problem wiht the "table" graphs. For exemple: 


From the table "costs" i have one cloumn called "Proyecto". 




From the table "Lecturas", I also have a column called "Proyecto".




The problem is:  When I select the proyecto at the first "graph" (Alibar in this exemple), the second graph still showing all the projects. Can somewone help me please? 

Do you have a relationship created between those two tables? If one has unique values, you can create 1:m relationship. Or maybe you have a separate table with the 'Proyecto' unique items which you can use as a dimension and create relationships to the other two tables..

I want to format the Timeline 2.4.0 in my themes.json file and import that theme in my other reports too. The problem is I don't know the properties of this custom visual. I don't want to format this timeline control with the visual level formatting options since there will be a lot of repetition to reproduce the same effect in other reports. Can somebody help me with that?

Here is the link of that custom visual:

I'd like to use Gantt 2.2.3, but I have miltiple levels in my projects' catalogue so I need a tree of projects. If I understant this correctly, this type of diargam allow to use only two levels: a child and one parent. Is it possible to add more than one parent to the diagram? How?

Thank you!





I am using Sankey 3.0.3 custom visual. I have set Display Units as Millions in Data labels. But in tooltip, the formatting appears for some links and for some links it does not. Even the columns/measures used are formatted but that formatting does not appear in Sankey visual tooltip.
