Power BI and PowerApps Visual - Date field not coming across

I am working on making a real basic walk through of how to add a PowerApps Visual in a Power BI report and I think I have found a bug.

 

In Power BI I am pulling data from an Excel workbook. The table has 3 columns. Date, ETH Price, LTC Price (yes I play with cryptocurriences). Date is in the format 12/19/17. Other two columns are 123.45 number format. I can make plenty of Power BI visuals and everything works.

 

Then I add the PowerApps visual, select all 3 columns, and then create a new app. The app fires like it should be when I get into PowerApps there is nothing in ThisItem.Date. ThisItem.'ETH Price' and ThisItem.'LTC Price' both have the correct data. I can select Date from the dropdown without squiqqly lines. Everything looks right but it is blank.

 

Is this a bug? Something wrong with my data? Am I doing it wrong?

Hi @Shanescows,

 

Thanks for reporting this.

I think this issue should be mostly related with Power BI Service.

There is an idea submitted on this regarding the date formatting difference specially for Power BI service:

To workaorund this, plese take a try to configure the date to display as date hierarchy:

After that, you should be able to read the Year, month, day value with the PowerBIintegration.

@Shanescows  - I left you this comment on your youtube video about this, but reposting here in case you look at this more often . .  I'm coming across an issue where I have 3 different dates that I'd like to be able to utilize in the PowerApps from the Power BI data. With the field being ThisItem.Month, I can only grab one of them. Any ideas on how to get all 3 dates?
