How can we improve Power BI?

Better navigation across reports / dashboards

Add a simple visual that will open another report or dashboard in the workspace, with a "back" button on the secondary report or dashboard. This will allow assignable navigation within the workspace and provide a rudimentary drill through capability. It should also allow a text descriptor for the link.

    intuitive navigation is critical to adoption. No one perusing data likes a dead end. If they link to something, they also need to get back. In this case, linking off to a report from a dashboard is simple (Success!), but lacks a simple way back to the dashboard.

    There needs to be a method to navigate back to a Main Dashboard from any report

    You can create tiles and put custom links to easily navigate between dashboards, but once user enters the report there is no one click back to main dashboard.

    This would be extremely useful for dashboards with many pages

    We would like to add links to the "pages" of the report according to other market tools. Example: The main page as a portal with several "Buttons" that will be directed to the pages of the report, inside that we can have a "Back" button for the main page.

    We would like to be able to link from one report object to another, ideally passing any relevant parameters across between the pages. Given the pages are of a limited size it would increase a user's ability to see the same set of data
