Here is the embedded report of version two, including Text Analytics, Release Dates and Publishers.

Are you using the Text Analytics flavor? For those reports, we use Microsoft Cognitive Services to extract key phrases from the Custom Visuals’ description. Once you download the Power BI Template file, (And in version 2, also unzip the file), you will be asked to provide Text Analytics API Key. The API key can be obtained for free from Microsoft Text Analytics here. In version 2 of the report, you can also download the report without Word Cloud and the Text Analytics.

After you provide the API Key, you may encounter a refresh error. To resolve the error, go to File –> Options & Settings –> Options, and check “Ignore Privacy Levels …” in Privacy.
