How can we improve Power BI?

Sync Drill-through page filters

Scenario: I have an "Overview" page and 2 other pages with drill-through filters enabled ("Customer performance" and "Customer history"). End users want to be able to drill through from the Sales Overview to the Customer performance page and then just open the "Customer history" page and keep the same drill-through filter.

    I have been trying to solve this same problem. I have an overview page that can drill-through to two pages. Those two pages have synced slicers. I want to be able to drill-through to one of them and then use a bookmark to access the other, keeping the drill-through filter. For some reason, when using a drill-through, the sync slicers component seems to break. Perhaps I am doing something wrong but that is what the issue seems to be.

    I also face this issue too. We have a main page and want to drill through on a Project to Details page and from Details page that has the Budget status we want to drill through to a Financials page that shows just finanicals for that project.
    Would like to know if this will be a feature supported at all.

    I also face same issue like Ahussnain. I have question to Microsoft team which power BI update should I expect this functionality?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    I have multiple visuals on same page all showing hierarchical data for different KPIs. Let's say hierarchy is Regions -> Countries -> Products.

    When I drill down on regionA in Visual1, I see list of all countries in A are shown, but the visual2 (with same hierarchy on x axis) gets filtered to regionA only (i.e. doesn't show the countries under it in Visual2). Similarly drilling further down on VisualA, doesn't drill down on Visual 2 automatically.
    There should be a way to sync the drill through filters across visuals (same and different pages).
    I believe so many of us design our reports in this fashion. Implementation of this feature is not complete without this sync feature.
