Bookmark Play & Audio Features
Love the new bookmark feature. I would like to see this enhanced to include a play button, duration (delay), and repeat (continuous play) feature for this so that you can turn it on like in presentation mode or someone can play it without the original author. Another feature then would be to add an audio file or be able to do a audio recording for each bookmark to include or reference through URL. Basically what is/was available for Power Maps so that you can play and watch the story.
Flourish now has a similar feature called Talkies ( https://flourish.studio/2019/02/07/audio-talkie-visualisation-data-stories/ ). It is nicely implemented. I think it would be better usability to have one audio file per report and then map the bookmarks to certain timings. Perhaps have the audio file live in One Drive or blob storage so it can be accessed in PowerBI.com. This would be so great for storytelling and communicating clearly about certain data points.

URL link to bookmark would really help for guided story-telling through reports

i'd like to see a loop option so we could set it to loop indefinitely, which would be ideal for our wall board displays
Also a direct link to the bookmark view. Now users need to enable this view mode manually.

Great idea! I’d very much like to be able to cycle a story (bookmarks) continiously!
