        Was this issue ever resolved? It's a nuisance if you can't drill through on the dashboard because you can only share Dashboard and not the report itself

      • joao commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        the drill option do not show in the graph when i pin the live page!!
        Please solve this bug, then.

        We tried the Pin Live and the icons for drill do not show up. So, are you saying this is a bug?

        I've pinned live report in dashboard but the drill down doesn't work. Would appreciated if this feature to be fixed and prioritize. Thanks.

        i pin a live report page the drill down doesn't work, its not there

        This feature is very much required. I am not sure what's stopping Microsoft team to prioritize this. I have spend days preparing a dashboard with a certain objective, in which drill down is extremely "pivotal" criteria & now I observe that this feature is not at all functioning in Dashboard version. It's extremely ridiculous to have something in Report version & can't be replicated in Dashboard version. What's the point of having this feature in Report version then ? I just can't understand. Would appreciate, if Microsoft team can really prioritize this feature in next release asap.

        I am really hoping for a new update from Kim as what is suggested does not work.

        How has this idea been declined?? It's something I, and from scrolling through the comments, many other users could really do with as well. Kim you obviously have not understood the request.

        When I pin a report page to a dashboard, it no longer has drilldown functionality. Please fix this.

        "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...

      • Jon Marks commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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?

      • Brian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

        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?
