Dynamic title (new April 2019 feature)

Setup: I have a data-only .pbix that I post to a workspace. I have a report-only .pbix that gets the data from the Power BI service for that workspace. (This is so one data source can be used by multiple report creators.)

 

Issue: Report Creator creates a measure in the report .pbix to dynamically create a title and assign it to the Title option using conidtional formatting. However, the measure is not selectable, though it shows in the list. As a test, the same measure was created in the data .pbix and pushed to the workspace. The measure from the data .pbix works just fine in the dynamic title of the visual.

 

Question: Is this by design, or a bug? Is there a reason that a measure created in a report-only .pbix not work as a dynamic title, but the same measure in the data-only .pbix works just fine?

 

Thanks in advance.

hi, @Anonymous 

I got this from the power bi product group:

Expression bound titles right now work only on text measures. When you connect to a powerbi.com data source and create measure, the default type is numeric.
If you just change the data type to text for that measure, it will work.

 

Please check that the measure (Report Creator creates a measure in the report ) is a text format
