        This suggestion was first brought up August 28, 2015, 1st and only ADMIN response was May 12, 2016. Can we get a date when this will be done or at least an understanding of why it's not there? Drill down is basic and needed by every Power BI user.
        Thanks

        This would be a great feature to have and will help promote Power BI with decision makers who are most often only interested in the Dashboard level and not the reports

        This is an essential feature, so hopefully it will be added soon.

        Please add this feature. Reports cannot be shared and this functionality is essential. Thanks

        Is there anything new about it?
        it is very important because I can only share dashboards..
        another option is to make it possible to share the report itself.

        Its essential to be able to drill down from dashboard, cannot understand how its not yet possible!

        After just one week working with Power BI, the lack of this feature surprised me!

        I'm surprised this isn't available already. What functionality does drill-down capability add if it isn't accessible to those that are viewing the information?

        This post was created in 2015, and I still cannot drill down in Dashboard. When I create dashboards for clients and they have to navigate to the Report to drill down, just doesn't make sense. Make the drill down available in Dashboard like it is in Report.

        While you are at it, please add the ability to Pin a filter to the Dashboard. As of now I cannot pin a filter to the dashboard, probably same reason I cannot drill down.

        Kindly provide Drill Down option in Dashboard Soon. Able to drill down at Report level alone.

        When can we expect the Drill Down feature in Power BI Dashboard

        It is probably time to ditch the dashboard altogether. Navigation is much more fluid with the report tabs as opposed to vertical scrolling from one page to the next on the dashboard.

        Any idea when this will be available? We haven't presented Power BI to the Exec team yet and need this feature to sell it to them.
