Hi @Angel 

When i connect to odata source using "Odata feed" according to this article, i can see "ask a question" enabled.

Please check connection type you have, if you connect to sources with live connection, "ask a question" is disabled by default.


Best Regards

Hi, @v-juanli-msft 


You are right. Ask a question  is enabled if I get from ODATA feed and is a new Power BI File.


However, it seems the feature is disabled with Power BI Files created in earlier versions before Q&A was launched.


Does anyone know if Am I right?
