Visual Headers

Hi all,

I have an issue with visual headers.

 

When building my dataset on PBI desktop, I checked the option to have the new visual headers.

Options checked in DesktopOptions checked in Desktop

When I load my dataset in PBI (into a groupspace), it works well. I can also save the initial report under a new name with this option still working.

But when I tried to create a report (with Create New Report option) using this dataset, the visual headers are back to "old format" & I can't remove them.

In the groupspace, that would not be an issue as I can always just use the "save as" to create new reports.

But the problem is that this dataset is used in other groupspaces & I'd like to avoid having to load the dataset in each groupspace (too bad as being able to use 1 unique set for all reports in all groupspaces is a clear must).

Does anyone experienced the same issue or know how to deal with this ?

 

Thanks

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

I found the workaround.

Create new dataset in Desktop using the extisting as source. Then load this new one into the different other workspace.

I now have a report created in each workspace but all conncted to the initial dataset (so only 1 to manage).

+ I can copy these reports as many times as I want without loosing the headers style option.

What was your rationale for doing this on the service rather than on the desktop?

I can create the report in Desktop (I did it actually as a workaround) but that won't solve the problem. That means that my unique dataset has to be loaded to each workspace individually where I would like to manage only 1 dataset & connect all report (whatever the workspace they are located) to this dataset. I did it in the past without any issue. I don't understand why suddenly this is no more working.

Managing 4 dataset (1 for each workspace I need it) is a workaounr which works but clearly not easy to handle: everything has to be repeated 4 times: any change to the dataset, security level,... Would be much more easy as it was before.
