Barcode button missing

Hello,

 

Could anyone help me out please.

 

Until maybe last week I had the barcode scanner on my reports, working well, though now the button is missing completely.

 

Can anyone think of a reason why this may have changed? I haven't changed the report apart from updating the data.

 

Thank you

Sorry, I found the problem. A data column had had the 'Barcode' tag category added to it.

 

So it was trying to filter 2 columns I guess.

 

Sorry to waste your time, but hopefully this will help someone else.

Hello, 

 

Latest app version. It is on the homescreen, but no longer an option within the report.

 

I was hoping for some advice as to what might have caused this to not be available any more (it disappeared just as people started to use it)

 

I am testing on Android. Running latest app. The button was previously there within the report, now using the option from the homescreen doesn't filter the report either.

Hey @StuBee,

 

Since the report does not appear also from the home screen scanner, I suspect that the report itself has changed. Can you please check the report's data model and verify that there is a single column marked as Barcode? It should be exactly one column tagged as barcode in a model. You can more about it here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/transform-model/desktop-mobile-barcodes

 

If it is not the issue please send us a sample PBIX file with the probelm for additional investigation to Power BI Mobile Support <mpbisup@microsoft.com>.

 

Thanks, Maya

Hey @StuBee ,

 

What device are you using? iPhone or Android? Phone or tablet? What app version?

Are you looking for barcode scanning as the app's homescreen (top-right camera icon) or part of a report?

 

Thanks, Maya
