I was shocked, suddenly important reports were missing from my workspace in Power BI service. But thanks to the help of Mellisa Coates, I was able to make the hidden reports visible again.
The whole thing is due to a very (very) un-intuitive behavior in the Power BI service. But let’s start from the beginning and assume we have a workspace with a report we are working on.
By actively using the report, it will be displayed on the home page as “Recommended” and “Recent”. Maybe we don’t want to show this report so prominently on our home page in the context of a presentation and decide without further ado to hide it via the three dots.
After the presentation, we notice that the report is not only no longer displayed on the home page, but has also disappeared from the workspace. 😱
But keep calm via the gear wheel on the upper right edge we get to the “Settings”. Under the “General” tab, we find the “Hidden items” section. Here we can bring the hidden items back to the display.
I hope this post helps you if you are facing the same problem.
