No known issues: Power BI is running smoothly

Awareness

Customers creating a new Dataflow from the Power BI service will see the default setting "Allow combining data from multiple sources" set to true instead of false. As a workaround, customers can uncheck the setting. Engineers are working on a fix and expect it to be deployed by end-of-day 11/22/2019.
Power BI Customers connecting to a Google Analytics data source may experience issues while authenticating. Engineers are working with Google to mitigate the issue and an ETA for a fix will be provided by end of week 11/24/2019.
Power BI Customers in the North Europe using on-premise Gateway may experience intermittent scheduled refresh issues resulting in "Your data gateway is offline or couldn't be reached" error. As a workaround, customers can perform a manual refresh or retry. Engineers are working on a fix and will provide an ETA soon.
Power BI Customers exporting filtered reports to PDF or PPT from the Power BI portal will see default unfiltered values in the exported report. As a workaround, the PowerBI Desktop Client can be used to filter and export instead. Engineers are working on a fix and expect it to be deployed by end-of-day 11/22/2019.
Power BI Customers who installed the August or later versions of Power BI Desktop may encounter issues signing in to the Power BI service through the desktop application. As a workaround users can follow the steps in this guide " https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-get-the-desktop#installing-power-bi-desktop-on-remote-machines " to extract the MSI from the downloadable package, uninstall existing package and re-install using the MSI executable. Power BI Engineers are working on a fix and it will be packaged with December(SU12) release of Power BI desktop.
