How can we improve Power BI?

Full Screen mode in Power BI Report Server

Power BI Report Server should have an option to open the report in Full Screen mode just as it has an option in Power BI Service . When we open reports in Power BI Report Server , we can view page in 3 options 1:) Fit to Width , 2:) Fit to Page and 3:) Actual size . Issue with these three mode is the page and header consumes a lot of space and we need to scroll to view to full report .

    What kind of excellent user experience by asking users to add "?rs:embed=true" to urls and remember hitting F11!! No wonder users prefer Tableau!

    As already mentioned in previous comments, Power BI reports get unreadable on smaller displays and the 4-layered menubar and plus the tabbar at the bottom just takes up too much space.
    For a user adding the "?rs:embed=true" to the url is not an option. We need a button!

    This is already done, just add "?rs:embed=true" at the end of the url and it will remove the Report Server features. Then, if you are in Internet Explorer you can also use F11 to go truly full screen and not even see the browser. This is great for presentations.

    this is extremely important feature. current power bi header is taking 25% of the space and reports are not readable with fit to page. (with actual size scroll bar is coming). it is frustrating.

    Please provide this soon! To optimize our visuals for report server consumption and for presentations we oftentimes have to create the same report pages twice (Report Server has a page size of 1900 x 720 where presentations when we pull up in file are standard 16:9).

    REALLY need this feature ASAP! Hopefully it's included in the Jan 2018 release of Report Server!

  • Adam Kruzel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Almost year and a half since this has been backlogged and no update. This is very frustrating to our users that rather than just being able to navigate to the report and open it, they have to yet add another favorite to their long list just so they can do the append "?rs:embed=true" to the URL. The return on what seems like such a small update would be huge and would help with usability.

    Thanks for the workaround Raymond Boone. This is super helpful when it comes to presenting your reports on varying screens and conferences rooms, so that you do not have to scroll. It allows you to show how it is intended to be seen.

    Dear Power BI Team, any News About this feature? Is still missing in the August 2018 release. It is important for futher acceptance of the reporting to have an easy way to switch between this modes.

    Many thanks

    I did find that once you've opened the report on the server, you can add the following code to the end of the URL and you're good to go.

    Please, please add this. I've had so many requests from users since we stood up our Power BI report server. You lose so much screen real estate to the title bar, favorites bar, navigation bar and menu bar that the report gets really squished down. My users found a counter-intuitive trick that I hate sharing--zooming out makes the report bigger.

    Yes please - Full screen mode is a huge need. The View is wasted with 30%+ of useless Headers. Many Thanks
