Hi all, I have a report using the xViz Gantt chart, not using any of the PRO features. Sometime last week (of Sept. 14) we started receiving the “Upgrade to a Paid Version” message/popup. I believe there must have been an update to this visual or something as the report did not change, and to verify I created from scratch a new report with no PRO features and immediately the pop up noting PRO features is shown.
- Add xVix Gantt
- Add Task Name column
- Add Start and End Date column
- No formatting or any other changes made (e.g. no PRO features)
Pro Features popup immediately appears
This is 100% opposite of xViz’s stated alignment with PowerBI strategy (below).
Anyone else having this issue? THX
List of key changes:
- xViz Pro (fully featured) is now completely free with Microsoft Power BI Desktop, aligning fully with Microsoft’s Free Power BI Desktop strategy.
I kind of found the cause – it seems to happen when you have tasks where [Start date] = [End date], which consequently get displayed as green milestones by default.
If this is not the case, then the pop-up disappears.
For testing, I changed my due dates as follows:
Due Date (Gantt) = if(‘Database'[Start Date] = ‘Database'[Due Date], ‘Database'[Due Date] + 1, ‘Database'[Due Date])
However, I deem this a bug, not a feature I suppose.
Got the same issue – I removed the visual and added the most basic fields (Task, Start, End) and the upgrade message instantly appears.
Last week it was working for some reason – Please fix this one quick as it is totally contrary to your stated licensing.
The latest version of the Gantt chart 1.1.9 is now available in xViz website along with the PRO pop-up fix. Please download the Gantt visual from the website and install it in your organization visuals to use the latest version.
Why do I have to add the visual under the organization visuals?
Incase, if you do not add the latest version Gantt chart 1.1.9 in your organization visuals, when you import the visual from file, power BI overwrites the added visual with the appsource Gantt chart visual v1.1.8.
For users, who are unable to add the visual in the organization visuals can use the workaround provided in my previous reply until Microsoft updates the latest version in the Appsource.
