No known issues: Power BI is running smoothly

Awareness
Some customers that have more than 1,000 documents in Sharepoint may experience issues refreshing reports when using Sharepoint Online as the data source. As a workaround, customers can refresh from Power BI desktop. Engineers will be deploying a fix starting 11/12 and expect it to be in all regions by end-of-day 11/17. Next update @ 11/16/18 at 5:00pm PST.
Customers may have issues using Relative Slicers when changing the Unit (e.g. "days" to "weeks") or Qualifier (e.g. "is in this" to "is in the next") of the relative filter. Engineers are deploying a fix and expect it to be deployed to all regions by end-of-day 11/17/18.
Some customers attempting to upload PBIX files larger than 1GB may encounter an error. As a workaround, customers can upload a PBIX file that is smaller than 1GB. Engineers are working on deploying a fix and will have an ETA soon. Next update @ 11/14/18 at 5pm.

Top issues and questions

  1. What if my data isn't up to date?

    If your dashboards or reports aren't showing your latest data, here are some things to check.

    • Make sure you've set up refresh.
      Follow these instructions to set up scheduled refresh or start a one-time "refresh now".

    • Is your data stored in OneDrive?
      Power BI checks OneDrive for changes to your data once an hour. If you need the data sooner, you can click "REFRESH NOW", but only once every five minutes. Learn more about refresh for data in OneDrive.

      Tiles for direct query data sources are refreshed once every ten minutes.
