How can we improve Power BI?

Drill-down should drill or cross-filter other visualizations on the page

I have a report page with multiple charts and visualizations. Let's say one of the chart shows Sales by Year and I drill down into 2013 to see the sales by month in 2013. Currently, the drill-down has no effect on the other charts and visualizations on the page; they still show data for all years, not just for 2013. Instead, I'd like other charts to drill down into 2013 or filter by 2013 as well.

        Is there any further progress on this? This is currently VITAL to our fault analysis of equipment failures. This is a must have for us. As mentioned below Tableau already does this and if we cant get it in PowerBI may have to change back to Tableau.

        I have just had to massively limit the interactivity of a dashboard I have built for my company due to this missing vital component. This functionality is integral to the Power BI user experience and I am stunned that it still hasn't been implemented.

        Hi, Is there any way we can sort this out? or like in how much time will this be available? I am facing the same issue.

        I transitioned from Tableau to PowerBI and this feature was very good which gives a very interactive experience to users. Users also like it instead of selecting multiple drop down filters...

        This is the single most important feature missing currently. Frankly, everything else is secondary. I'm pretty much holding off on any demos or trying to get people in the company excited about this product until this is implemented.

        Hi, this would be EXTREMLY important and definetly a must-have for my visualizations.. Not having this functionality is a huge setback vs other BI applications :(

        Seriously guys, this is a BIG fail on the value of the visualizations :(

        We use the drill down so that we can aggregate the information from multiple projects on one page, then drop down into the level of detail we need. Not having this really eliminates this critical workflow.
