How can we improve Power BI?

Bookmarks on BI Service at Dashboard level

Loving the new bookmarking feature, however working within an organisation where Power BI has just been introduced the majority of our dashboards are pinned reports to dashboard level. It would be AMAZING if the bookmarks (linked to images) worked on the dashboard level.

If you can pin an entire report and the interactive visuals work, logic dictates that any image-based bookmarks should also work. Also adding bookmarks to filters would be heaven.

I appreciate that bookmarks are in preview but would welcome any indication of further bookmark developments?

    I emphasize using bookmarks to my colleagues, so I'm disappointed they do not work in pinned dashboards. Please address soonest - thanks.

    I have a button that toggles between two charts via bookmarks... Looks great except when pin to a dashboard. Would love to see it!

    We don't use reports. Everyone consumes pinned items on various dashboards. Not having a functional bookmark on the dashboard is an oversight. Please fix this.

    I have a button to clear all my filters inside a bookmark. It is useless in the dashboard so it would be extremely useful to be able to use them.

    I just added bookmarks to implement the switchable date slicer (switch from Rolling 12-month, Year to Date, or Specified Date Range), and now discover that pinning the 4 key KPI visuals to the dashboard - a feature which is vital! - no longer works. Please either fix this, or (ideally) let me switch the dates without having to use the trickery of bookmarks (which still has other problems such as losing the other filters when I switch bookmarks).

    I hide all my filters inside a bookmark with a button. It is useless in the dashboard so it would be extremely useful to be able to use them.

    Yes.. this indeed a very necessary feature. otherwise there is no flavor to the Dashboard

    Agree this would be really useful, I did not realise it didn't work until I built it an as my report is going on a screen to display this option is now no longer possible.

    It would be great if bookmarks are available for Power BI Dashboard, hoping the development team is already working on this!!

    Just hit this issue and I wonder whether development team has this in their roadmap! Thank you!

    Please update me if you have found a workaround to this. We have very complex data sets and our reports will get far too large if we cannot use dashboard bookmarks.

    Has anyone found a workaround? Bookmarks are a great feature until I hit this issue.
