How can we improve Power BI?

Bookmark groups

The new bookmark feature looks great. Would be useful if you could have collections of bookmarks for the presentation mode. For example, we have multiple clients that we provide campaign analysis for. It would be useful to use the same base report for these presentations but with the ability to create a group of bookmarks that are specific to that presentation. That way only one report can be used for every presentation and multiple users could have their own set of bookmarks to view a report in the ways that they specifically care about.

        this would be really, really helpful to avoid clutter of bookmarks or avoid copies of reports (pbix files)

        Agreed..... this is needed.
        Some bookmarks can be created to facilitate "frequent" selections.... while others may be intended to drill down to a particular insight... A presentation may e.g. be created for a specific insight and therefore involve only a subset of the available bookmarks. If you have separate insights to show, each would be delivered with a separate presentation.
        Frequent selections and specific inisghts are different purposes that could be separated with the ability to separate bookmarks.

        Yes, def. need this. We have a need to hide some info when going to Client presentations, which is easily accomplished now via Bookmarks. However, to go back to default view, you again have to build a Bookmark that shows all info. So since we have bookmarks for both views, it's too easy to go to the wrong view, when cycling through Bookmarks. A PowerPoint like ability to select which bookmarks to hide during a presentation would make the Bookmarks truly useful.
