Update: Issue has been resolved.  We found an issue with the Chrome browser version being used in the company.  


We are using the ChicletSlicer in several reports.  We started recieving reports that it was not working in the online versions.  They click on a chiclet to make a selection but nothing happens other than the the colors of the chiclet changing.  It does work properly in the desktop version.

PowerBI with app (add-in) Power KPI (, last updated 7/10/2023) from Microsoft Corporation has a bug with vertical axis. When all values of variable are identical in time axis, plot gives horizontal line on the bottom, while it should be in the middle according to the vertical axis values. See example below.


How to reproduce a bug:

  • Select "Power KPI" visual
  • Set "Axis" to some valid variable
  • Set "Values" to a variable which has identical values (calculated measure or count) accross all time points
  • Result is horizontal line at the bottom of a graph, but according to vertical axis line should be in the middle
    • Count of country = 3, vertical axis from 2.4 to 3.5, line is at wrong ~2.4 level
  • Value popup shows correct value, but bubble point is on the line which is at wrong level (cross-hair of horizontal and vertical line)

IMO, axis values are correct, popup values are correct, but line is plotted at wrong height for some reason. When variable has different values, then ploted line and axis values seem to match correctly.

This bug needs to be fixed.

I am having this issue for 2 of our users. This search filter is working fine for other users, but not for some.


This is the working filter.


Any solution to this? We have tried clearing caches and re login to power bi service for those users too.

Hi, could you please help me with this visualization? After refreshing our Power BI Server up to September 2023 Chiclet Slicer does not mark color for selected chiclet.

After 15.0.1113.169 refreshing the issue was resolved

I'm using the Power KPI custom visual and love the functionality that this provides. However, I noticed that the chart automatically defaults all values as whole/decimal numbers instead of using the formatting that the user defines for a given value/meausure, such as percentage or currency. I feel like this is an easy fix. Is this the right place to request such a change?

Hi, I have previously published a report using the pdfviewer visual to display a one-page PDF file. It works fine and I really appreciate the zoom in and out feature that can't be done using other image viewer custom visual. However, the recent update of the PDFviewer has changed all my PDFs to be stretched vertically and all the texts on it become unreadable. It also has the default export document feature turned on at the nav bar by default with no option to hide. However, clicking on it just brings you to the licensing page. May I know how do I go about this? Is there a way to downgrade or settings to deal with the stretched image?

we've just updated our Power BI Report Server to the September 2023 and have now an issue with the Chiclet slicers not showing the selection. They still filter the report page in the published version but the selection doesn't keep the coloured highlight to show which value was selected. In desktop it's still keeping the selected value highlighted, so not sure why this disappears when saved to the report server. Can anyone help with this?

I am using Chicklet Slicer in my report. I have almost every element accessible using the keyboard, but I cannot get inside the chicklet slicer by pressing the Enter key. I have updated its code such that the Keypress selects the next option available and it works when I click on the visual (get inside of it). When I use the TAB key to roam around the report it only selects the visual. Need help figuring out how can I get inside of the visual using the Enter key so that I can get my Keypress function working.

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?
