        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.

        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.

        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...

        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 .

      • Alex commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Dashboards are nearly worthless without this. Why's it taking so long?

      • shankha commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please guys implement this feature in the dashboard, else remove it from the report itself, why unnecessarily confuse developers.

      • Kelly Dittmar commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm also wondering about an update on this item, is there anything else to share?

        Our CEO is now using reports which have the object frames popping up all over and presents a very poor view overall for him. But I can't get him out of the report & into the dashboard because drilling down is a requirement.

        It seems like a good compromise would be to allow for a specific element to be pinned into the dashboard in either drill down/cross highlight/etc. so if you want to be able to change the drill function - you'd need to re-pin.

        A drill-down/up feature in dashboards seems like an obvious requirement for even the most basic users. Shocked this wasn't part of the original software.

        The added interactivity of drill-down/up in real time is what "wows" executive teams and clients who are often the end-consumers of such dashboards.

      • Shaligram commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hey guys !

        this was reported 2 years before and any BI/reporting tools this features must required for presentation.

        stuck with so many features like this ! :(

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Lack of this feature is a deal breaker. I can't share my dashboard with executives and ask them to jump to report view for drill down. Is there any timeline so that I can manage expectations of my team? Thanks
