How can we improve Power BI?

Enable user to navigate from one Power BI report to another

We would love to have a feature to navigate from one power bi report to another where the user has the ability to see only those records which are related to the first report link like the action feature in SSRS.

    Much needed for usefulness of the tool. This way it's more of an analysis tool and not just a presentation tool.

    One of the report requirements is to have three reports (which are basically hierarchical) to be linked together. We have achieved this in the WEB through the hyperlink option and it is working fine.

    Problem Statement:

    But the idea is to present these reports in IPAD within the Power BI App.
    Within the App, when we click the hyperlink of the 1st report (topmost hierarchy), the underlying report opens up in a browser, but not within the app, but the requirement and the preference is to open underlying reports open within the APP with the filtered parameter passed through. If we try to open within the app, it is not filtered with the passed parameter.

    So what is required is being able to open a Report on Power BI Mobile App passing parameters (filters) as we can currently do through Web URL.

    ALL of our reports need to be able to drill down to individual event records in order to see what the actual problem was

    Would also like to see a dynamic URL or Report action from Power BI that can take the user to an SSRS report for a drill down based on the filters that are applied to Power BI report

    And similarly we really need to be able to drill through to a report from a dashboard, retaining the filters that were applied to the dashboard component.

    I agree with Mike Honey's comment. In Business Objects, you can link one report to another and feed it's prompt values with data from the source report. Great for looking at the next level down - similar to drilling but on a separate report.

    The most flexible implementation of this might be to add an "Action URL" property to the tables & visuals that would accept a text field from the dataset. Back in the dataset query or calculated column, you could pre-construct whatever dynamic URL was relevant to each row in the dataset. Target reports would need a consistent URL and to be able to accept query parameters and use them as filters. Targets could also be non-Power BI sites.

    The project manager should only see the ratios of their projects.
    A sales representative should only see their customers and therefore sales of its customers.
    etc.

    It is very necessary feature to navigate on sub report like we do in SSRS
