        "You can pin live report pages to dashboard if you want this functionality".

        No you can't, that is exactly what this request was aiming for...

        Kim, you are clearly not aware of what a dashboard can and can't do.. i hope it wasn't your decision tu decline this request....

        Would like to echo similar thoughts as mentioned below. The reports that we create are pinned to a live dashboard and only the Dashboard link is shared with users. Drill Down functionality does not work on Dashboards an just to have users to re-direct to a report for that one feature is bit cumbersome.
        I have multiple dashboards coming out from a single report i.e. my report has 26 tabs that are feeding 4 dashboards and so when the user clicks to get to the report, it gets confusing for them to move across tabs as compared to scrolling through dashboard live pinned pages.
        Hence, I would sincerely request MICROSOFT team to reconsider this feature and have it in future releases

        Bad answer... pin > 3 reports to dashboard will impact the performance massively.
        And in some cases I don't want people to see the reports with much more data...

        To echo the comments already posted - please reconsider this request as it would solve multiple deployment and usability problems to be able to drill down on a dashboard component without having to open up the report.

        Wow, I hope you all will reconsider this request as it has much interest. Otherwise please clarify more uses for Dashboards vs Reports as it seems like Microsoft is pushing more reports instead of dashboards. On my dashboard that has a live report page pinned it does not even work with an option to turn on drill down and then drill down. I have to click to go to the report. So this part is not even working for me. Others?

        Kim - your statement is not accurate. A report that is pinned live to a dashboard loses the ability to drill down through the hierarchy - the buttons are not present on the dashboard. So how does a live pinned report give us this functionality?

        Kim - on a more personal note - telling us to use a report instead is unbelievably condescending. We know how to use reports for drill down - the idea was specifically about new dashboard functionality - have some respect for this community please.

        Microsoft - please choose ambassadors for your products that are not dismissive of the user base. This is clearly still on issue for users, and to have someone like Kim be the voice for Power BI does a disservice to the product. Some remedial customer management training should be in order for Kim if she is to remain a product manager we are forced to interact with.

        In other words Microsoft is really not that advanced and can't do it, given that this is a standard feature in all other BI program I've worked on.

      • Kelly Dittmar commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Kim - That's really disappointing given the desire for this feature. I hope you say more about why this was declined.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        too bad!
        I have 24 groups of users... do you want me to maintain 24 different dashboards for them?
        That's not really convenient, is it?

        Hello,

        Is anyone working on this still. I need to have drill down capability within the dashboard itself and not have to switch over to report to display drill downs. This makes displays and titles at the dashboard level tricky, because if I say "Top Customers" and the dashboard only displays "top States" in the Matrix with no ability to drill down, it doesn't make much sense to a dashboard only viewer if they really want to see details.

        Hello,

        is there any update on this? are we going to have this feature anytime soon? I have pinned each tab of my file to a live dashboard.

      • Daniel Åhr commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        WOW!

        Just wow man...

        I was complaining on alot of threads this afternoon about mobile UX on Android and now discover BI cloud is as broken on dashboards, sighs :(

        Just follow my lead Microsoft and work on this:
        Android Mobile:
        -Dashboards:
        -ability to disable auto focus mode on tiles in the mobile dashboard (no need to zoom
        for gauge, KPI, etc.).
        -no filters work.
        -no drilldowns work.
        -no graph interconnection for filtering works i.e. clicking one part of graph updates the
        rest.
        -filter choices from chiclet or filter should pass on in dashboard or atleast to items
        pinned from the same report
        -filter choices from chiclet or filter should pass globally across the reports.
        -ability to deactivate jump to report page actions on click, just add paramaters like in
        SSRS.
        -Reports:
        -Drilldown needs too many steps; expand to focusmode -> press explore -> select one
        level down. Add auto buttons above headers like in cloud and iframe versions.
        -Drilldown doesn't remember what piece of a piechart you wanted to drill down on and
        defaults to USA with this explore function (of France, Germany etc.)

        BI cloud:
        -Dashboards:
        -Remember "Drill mode" active state of a graph (on or off) to pass on to iframe and
        mobile versions.
        -ability to disable auto focus mode on tiles in the mobile dashboard (no need to zoom
        for gauge, KPI, etc.).
        -no filters work.
        -no drilldowns work.
        -no graph interconnection for filtering works i.e. clicking one part of graph updates the
        rest.
        -filter choices from chiclet or filter should pass on in dashboard or atleast to items
        pinned from the same report
        -filter choices from chiclet or filter should pass globally across the reports.
        -ability to deactivate jump to report page actions on click, just add paramaters like in
        SSRS.

        Is this ever going to be completed given it was listed as under review in 2016? Currently this is one of the main features that is stopping us transferring all reporting to Power Bi from our current BI provider.

      • Lee commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This should be prioritized to a higher number, it only makes sense that if you build a report to drill down that if you wanted to publish it, or pin it to a "dashboard" that it would have the same functionality. We would have like to just share a dashboard instead creating content packs all the time but cannot because this function is missing from report. This has been a suggestion for a LONG time, please review it and make it happen...

      • Dawn Stevenson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Any further update on this please, we're desperate for this feature as I cannot share the reports for all

      • Lucky commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This change should be implement in Sep update. very useless dashboard with this functionality .
