Hi @knishal 

 

Power BI doesn't support List data type in the model, so you need to extract values from these lists or expand lists to get the values you want by using Power Query Editor in advance. From Home ribbon, click "Transform data" to launch Power Query Editor and extract list values there.

Hi, I have the same issue. 

I am not very tech savy when it comes to PowerBi but am trying to resolve the same issue.
I 'extracted the values' which show as numbers, but this column should be the Facilitators names and I am unsure on how to change the format time. I have tried to change it via - Transform > Data Type > Text but this doesn't work either. 

Any assistance on this would be much appreciated. Can anyone advice please? @v-jingzhang
