Disable visual highlighting and interactions
When clicking on certain elements of a visual, I can control the interaction this selection has on other visuals within the report, but I was wondering if there is the ability to completely disable the clickability of a visual? I don't want the end users to be able to click on the visual at all, so neither the selected visual or other visuals would be highlighted? Tooltips should still be viewable on hover.
This feature should be available for use in both service and desktop.
More information on the unsuccessful attempts people have made trying to achieve this with graphs/charts can be found here:
This needs to be a feature. Exactly how slicers and pivot tables can be edited in Excel, we need that for Power BI.

Any update here?
no brainer - give an option to switch on or off static (non clickable, not interactive) visuals please.
Currently, we can use a function in "Query reduction" , which is "Disable cross highlighting / filtering by default". this can disable all interactions at once. But may need to be careful to use it as it will disable all interaction.
It's still worthy to have a feature to disable interaction in bulk for some visuals, not all of them.
THEY DON'T GIVE A FK, BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE TO CLICK 870 TIMES.
As per the below comment: I had to do this for 70 visuals that overlapped. 4,830 clicks! It must have taken two+ hours. My shoulder is still sore 24 hours later!
"PLEASE ADD! Think about this... currently if there are 30 visuals on a page and you don't want any interaction, you must choose each one and then turn off the other 29. That's 870 clicks!!! And if any of the visuals overlap, you can't even click to turn off interaction without first bringing it to front or moving/resizing."
Any update on the request to toggle off ALL interactions for multiple visuals at once... Not a fan of selecting each individually and switching to none.

Surely needed this feature. Huge time saver!
It's surprising it does not already exist by now!

This is urgently needed...takes up so much time doing this.

Definitly needed! Following..
Change multiple interactions simultaneously would save me lots of time!! Strange that it is not possible yet.
Although this idea mentions that ability to disable the interactions, I would like to see a way to disable or enable all of the interactions at once. I prefer to set all of my interactions to filter so having this functionality would save me a lot of time.
Need the ability to set a default interaction eg filter and thereafter to change multiple interactions simultaneously
need the ability to disable all interactions on a report with one click.
I agree with all of the comments below. I could copy Alex Fenech's comment below and paste in here.

Well, having a window that allows us to edit the interactions visually like the Modelling View would be much appreciated.
Like this, but for interactions:

My biggest pain point for this is text boxes and visuals. If I have a visual overlayed on top of an image or text box, the user can inadvertently click on it and make the visuals move behind because that particular visual is forced to the front thus hiding the visuals and making it really confusing to an end user exactly what happened/how to fix.
