Include in App grayed out

In the Power BI Service, I am trying to toggle one of my reports to be included in the app.  However, the 'include in app' column is greyed out for all.  Any idea why this would be greyed out?

This is annoying to me. Can the workspace be reverted to the orginal way so I can just toggle the Included in App?

Please have a look the below post , refer to the

If the included App is greyed out and you are unable include the new reports in the App.

Try this:
Click Update App >> This will open a page with three tabs Setup, Content and Audience
Click Content Tab >> Add Content >> Select the Workspace you would need to add or remove
Click Audience Tab >> Make sure your new added content is unhidden, by default this would be hidden.
Update the App

This would reflect the changes

Yes, that's perfectly it! I've found the option of the invisible eye grayed out in the Audience tab.

(Such a vicious way to burry a basic need...)

so does this mean the include in app buttons arent used anymore? because ive added new reports to my workspace and the include in app button is off and greyed out - however, the report also does not appear in the content page so i cant get the report to add to my app

ah, i see the issue, you need to click on the add content button directly, not the dropdown of the button. it wasnt that clear but understand at least now

I see the instructions in the announcement, but my power bi server screen does not show an Add Content button as referenced in announcement.  I have multiple report showing in the content tab that I had published into an app prior to this change.  Now I seem to be unable to add reports to an app  😞



got some expert help yesterday & resolved:

sometime after the late August update, a message will flash on the screen when accessing workspaces asking if you want to change over to the new interface.  Apparently I had clicked yes for one of my workspaces and not the other.  My existing reports had already been setup but you still have to set up the Content and Audience tabs.


and I have another work space in power bi server where the 'include in app' switches are not grayed out.  How could 2 different work space behave differently like this?



I have the same problem and in spite of adding my new content with the content button it is still not appearing after updating the app for the end user. This new version of the app is driving me crazy. 😭
