Custom Data Label missing from Power BI Service but present on Desktop

Update Jan 2024 -- I believe the issues are getting worse 


I've only found one post that relates to this topic, but the solution doesn't seem to work for me.

Similar to the referenced post, I created a custom data label to control when/where labels are shown.  The screenshots below depcit the same page on Service and Desktop but the custom labels are only present on desktop. DesktopDesktopServiceService


The visual settings for the data label:Settings.png


And the measure itself: 

DataLabel.Safety.TPIR =
    var _TPIR = [Safety.TPIR.OverTime]
    var _month = MAX(slicer_Dates[Month])
    var _mod = 3
    var _currMonthMod =
    var _formattedTPIR =
            _TPIR > [Graph.Max.Safety.TPIR],
            ">"& FORMAT([Graph.Max.Safety.TPIR], "#,##0.00"),
            FORMAT(_TPIR, "#,##0.00")
        ISBLANK(_TPIR) || MOD(_month, _mod) <> _currMonthMod,
I need custom labels so I can constrain the bounds without losing information while maintaining Visual clarity through a limited number of labels. 

Any ideas why the custom label doesn't appear in Service?
Thanks for any and all help!

It is working on the Desktop but the issue is happening on the service side.Can you give us an update once it gets resolved.Thank you!


Just Define Same thing In Detail Also As New info added only Same Place Where you Drag values.

Hmm. This was fixed some time ago so not sure why it's still not working for you as I just checked and it's working for me still.

I think this happens is certain situations. One situation that it does happen in is when the Apply settings to 'All' Data Series Value well is populated (whether it is turned on or off) with something other than the custom label that matches what is selected in the individual series with the custom label, it will cause the custom label on the desired series to not render properly but instead render what is selected in the 'All' series. To verify, can you please check to see if your data series with the custom label matches the Value selected of the Apply settings to the 'All' series?


This is also the fix (have the two show the same custom label value. However, this is a pain if you have many reports that need this manual fix, so hoping that MS can push through a fix so we do not have to manually update all impacted reports.

I'm also experiencing the same problem with custom data labels not showing up in the Power BI Service. When they previously did, noticed it while I was presenting one of my reports last week.

Just want to confirm since I just recently used the custom label feature. This feature was working correctly before, and then just suddenly disappeared lately? I asked since I'll communicate it to our stakeholders. Thanks. 

Also my experience. I assumed it was because I changed the measure, but I don't think that's the case anymore.

Just got off a call with support (#2310040010003433). She will check internally to see if it is currently being worked on and I also referenced her to this post (thank you for posting!). She captured some screenshots and did some tracing during our session and will communicate when she finds more (she said possibly Monday).

Are there any updates??


I have a deadline for my report in 2 weeks and would really need to get this fixed soon 😊
