How can we improve Power BI?

Personalized Bookmarks

The current bookmarking feature requires report creators to define bookmarks. Ideally, users would be able to save personalized bookmarks (similar to web browser) in addition to the author's pre-defined bookmarks.

For example, I might have a project management report or sales by stores. Each user of the report may have their own set of projects or stores that they want to quickly navigate between. These are relevant to the current users and not other users of the reports.

        I think it is also important that the bookmarks work within reports deployed through and APP and that those bookmarks will feed the Export to Powerpoint Feature.

        Hi Nikhil,

        It is great to know you are already working on this topic. Do you have any updates?

      • Kevin H commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Great news that this is coming soon.

        I agree that the bookmarks created by end users need to be shareable!

        Great to read that this is underway. Please implement a feature allowing “authors”/users to “protect their bookmarks from being accidentally updated. For example, if the developer sets bookmarks to default sertings for slicers etc, these should not be “update”-able

        Any update on this? This is a huge pain point for our users that they cannot save their filter combinations. We would need this to work for reports inside of Apps (not just workspaces) as that is how we are delivering our content.

        I realize this is similar to https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/8141748-save-user-filters-on-reports and and https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/15198462-persisting-default-selections-for-different-users. However, persisting the last settings will only save one set of filters, when users may require several filter combinations for a single report.

        Yes, personal bookmarks would be a fantastic feature. It would save a great deal of time which could be used to mine the data further.

        Love the bookmark feature. Please allow users who access reports via an app (who may or may not be members of the underlying workspace) to create personal bookmarks. These bookmarks should survive any app or report updates as long as the report still supports the bookmark selections. Thanks.

        That's a great idea. In addition those bookmarks should be shareable. So the user would be able to dig in the report, find some interesting points and share it to another user who is able to apply this bookmark himself on the report.

        This is REALLY needed! We have hundreds of users, so it is completely impossible for me as a developer to define all filters in all bookmarks, for every single presentation that the users are preparing for on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis. Please find a solution fast - bookmarks doesn't make sense as it is now. Especially not when it also is impossible for the user to set filters before exporting to powerpointl. Right now i have hundreds of users copy/pasting screenshots into powerpoint every day!

        Yes! While it's nice to be able to "favorite" an app, being able to do so for the individual reports within the app would be AMAZING

      • Jonathon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I also need this. I have many reports in a premium node workspace. The various users of the reports have specific personas and associated areas of interest for the reports. One example is a production supervisor over a geographic area. His area never changes and it would be nice if individuals could set the bookmarks or filters to stick when viewing.
