Power View Rendering Issue

One of our clients was experiencing an issue with all their Power View reports as well as Power BI not working as expected. What was happening was the Power View reports would not render in Excel Online and only render in Excel 2013.  In Power BI the reports would not render after uploading them only the icons showed the report. We had worked with MS to see how this could be since other tenants we had admin control over were working fine. No answer from the Project Online Team to date.

After some testing and poking around we discovered a setting that was causing the issue. Go to SharePoint Admin Center► Settings► under the Preview Features section►turn on the radio button for ► “Enable preview features”.

After that setting was turned on we tested the Power View reports and everything rendered in Excel Online and Power BI successfully.
