Announcing retirement of the Hide option in the Power BI service

The Power BI service gives you the option to Hide items from the different sections of your Home canvas: Favorites + frequents, Featured, Recents, Shared with me, and My apps. While giving you the ability to add your previously hidden content back to your Power BI Homepage at any time.

Support for the above will be removed and the option to Hide any of your Power BI content from your Homepage will be retired.

When this will happen:

The capability to Hide any of your content through the Power BI service will be retired starting mid-July.

How this will affect your organization:

You are receiving this message as a warning that the option to Hide your content will no longer be supported. With the retirement of the Hide option, you will no longer be able to hide any of your Power BI content.

  • If you have hidden any of your Power BI content prior to retirement, that content will stay hidden, and you will have access to your hidden content within your settings pane. But you will not be able to hide any Power BI content in the future.

What you need to do to prepare:

The capability to Hide any of your Power BI content is being retired, now would be a good time to confirm that you can view your previously hidden content within your settings pane in case you would like access to them in the future.

Note: After the retirement of the Hide option, if you decide to unhide any of your content you will not be able to hide it again.
