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.

        Hi Nikhil, please do let us know by when this is available?

        For many of our apps this is a "must have" before we can roll out to users. For larger data files with many slice-n-dice filter variables it would take a user for ever to navigate to their individual display(s) each time. With out this, due to amount of time a user would spend, it would result in no one wanting to use it.

        REALLY need this feature - we are releasing reports to over 2000 users soon and it is pretty embarrassing that they need to say "Please have a look at this, and don't forget to set 15 slicers as I am instructing you to, otherwise we are not looking at the same numbers." When sharing their insights with their collegues...
        Any news on when this is rolled out?

        Using on-premise version. This is one of the main features that would prevent me from using Power BI for most of my customers. They need to be able to save specific slicer combinations. Ideally, they should be able to create a link to that bookmark as well.

        I think this needs to be prioritized more than it currently is. Giving the end user the capability of setting filters down to what they need and saving those screens is such a huge feature that would improve the use of reporting. Was disappointed not to see it in the most recent update

        Please updates on when the personal bookmark feature will be ready. And when it is ready, will it be available in both PBI Server as well as PBI Report Server environments? Thanks!

        ETA? We have lots of users and the biggest complaint is that they can only favorite Apps and not individual reports. Can't wait for this awesome feature.

        I would like to reiterate: When this is rolled out, there NEEDS to be an option for users to share these bookmarks. A user has to be able to set the slicers as needed, and then send a link to the colleague, "Please have a look at THIS". Not: "Please have a look at this, and don't forget to set 15 slicers as I am instructing you to, otherwise we are not looking at the same numbers."

        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.

        Great news that this is coming soon.

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

      • PDB commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.
