Need to "Cancel Invite" and reshare dashboard when sharing with first time users
Submitted byAnonymouson07-13-201710:44 PM
I have been trying to roll out Power BI to my organisation (it is a rather large organisation with many users all over the country) whilst our Central IT department is working through upgrading us to Power BI Premium and I have discovered a bug that the Microsoft Customer Service person who is helping me claims is by design.
Bug that was discovered: When I share a report via a dashboard to a new Power BI user (doesn't already have a Pro Licenses) and the user signs up for a Pro Trial to see my report, I need to cancel the invite and resend it.
Steps to reproduce:
Create a report and publish it to a group
Create a dashboard for the report and share it with a user who is not a Pro user yet
Have your user sign up for the Power BI Pro Trial
User will get "Sorry, we couldn't find that report" error
After your user signs up for a Power BI Pro Trial (step 3 in the above), go to your dashboard and click "Cancel Invite"
Resend the invite to your user
This works, however, it is a bug and it is creating a lot of extra work for the people who are producing / sharing reports as well as frustrations from our end users.
If you could fix this or assure that this will be fixed when we move to Premium, that would be really helpful in getting our users to adapt to Power BI as their new reporting tool.
