In the last few days, users of the Synoptic Panel and Smart Filter (custom visuals for Power BI) experienced some issue in the behavior of these components. Changes applied to API and automatic updates pushed through the Microsoft Power BI Gallery created some unexpected problems. Now the components are synchronized on www.okviz.com and the Power BI Gallery. If you have used the components in Power BI Desktop, make sure to download and update the components the latest version available, and if necessary publish the report on Power BI service, too.
We worked to make sure such a disruption will not happen again! We also have some interesting improvements for Smart Filter, but we have to make sure certain API will stabilize before deploying them.
In the meantime we closed the survey for the OKViz name, and the result is… stay with OKViz! Complete results are available here.
