Favorites and Recent links are gone from left nav

Is anyone else also seeing that Favorites and Recent left navigation links are gone from the left navigation in the Service? This seems related to User experience experiments tenant setting. If I disable that in the tenant, the links come back.


If anyone cares about my opinion, I think that the Favorites and Recent links are EXTREMELY VALUABLE!! So, I would not like to see them go away in future updates to the Service!

@ me in replies or I'll lose your thread!!!

Hi @Greg_Deckler 

This is becoming a FAQ,

Microsoft made these UI changes, you can opt out with this Tenant Setting switch (you need a Power BI Admin to update the setting). Annoyingly it seems the default setting of this switch is to have these "experience experiments" ON!


The user account that sees "Browse" was randomly selected as part of an experiment evaluating a potential change to the UI. If the customer would like to opt-out of experiments they can do so by disabling experimentation see User experience experiments admin settings - Power BI | Microsoft Docs


When this feature is enabled, users in the organization will get minor user experience variations, including content, layout, and design, that the Power BI team is experimenting with before they go live for all users.



Hope this helps
