In October 2023, we launched three updated Power BI templates in collaboration with Adapt Analytics. If you wish to continue using the old Power BI templates from TimeChimp, you will need to make some necessary changes. These changes ensure that the old templates continue to work. In this article, we explain what changes you need to make. Let's dive right in!
Step 1 - Edit Power Query
Open Power BI and the TimeChimp template. At the top of the bar, you will see an icon of a table with a pen. Click on it to edit the Power Query.
Step 2 - Edit the queries
The screenshot below shows the screen that opens. Then follow these steps:
Select the 'Times' query.
Click on 'apiURL' on the right side.
At the top, you will see a URL; at this moment, it says 'http://tcodata.azurewebsites.net/times.'
Replace 'tcodata.azurewebistes.net' with 'data.timechimp.com.'
Repeat this for the following queries: Expenses, Mileages, Customers, Projects, Tasks, Users, ScheduleAssignments, Invoices, and Estimates.
Step 3 - Save
Once you have updated all the queries, you can click on the close icon. You will then be asked if you want to save the queries. Of course, you want to do this. Click on 'Yes' or 'Ja' if your Power BI is set to Dutch.
Step 4 - Connect to OData feed
A pop-up may appear to reconnect to the OData feed. Select 'Anonymous' as shown in the screenshot below, and make sure the URL is http://data.timechimp.com. Finally, click on connect.
Congratulations, you have updated your Power BI template! If you need help or encounter an error, please contact us via the chat or send an email to email@example.com.
