Connect to Dataflow in PBI Desktop

I created dataflow in workspace where my colleagues are admins. They cannot use this dataflow in PBI desktop to create report. They get this error even before they can see list of dataflows. They just click on dataflow source and error pops up.
They deleted their credentials, but no change. 

When one of them created dataflow, I can use it without problems. 
Any idea what is going on there? 

We have PRO licenses.

They access dataflow from the same win server as I do.

I fixed this issue, but not sure what is going on there.

I had data source for dataflow, where I was not able to add users. I deleted this data source.

My authomatic refresh failed so I add new source in data source settings in report option.

And new data source was created, where I could add other users.

Although, same data source, where I cannot add users was created as well.

Any expanation for this?

I create these all the time and other people have no issues accessing them. It looks like they need to sign into the organizational account in order to access them. What happens if they hit sign in? You have no problems accessing them?

When they hit sign in, pop up message dissapears and they cannot enter credentials. It seems that oragnizational account is the problem I will check it. Because I can see this in flow settings:

But they dont. 

How to sign into the organizational account? Their accounts are the same as my. AAD account they use to sign in to laptops.

Hmmm. I had this happen once a long time ago and can't recall how I fixed it. I believe I cleared cache from desktop and the server and then it worked - see if they can do that and try after
