Thanks for the suggestion! At the moment, you can interact with dashboard tiles in our newly introduced in-focus mode (https://support.powerbi.com/knowledgebase/articles/756723-display-a-dashboard-tile-in-full-screen-mode-in-f). Stay tuned for more dashboard visual interactivity support. If others think this would be valuable, please add a vote!

Any update on this?! Would be a crucial feature
Interaction is absolutely essential in data mining. Most of the time I can only guess what the users may want to have a quick look at the data. It is essential for the users to slice the data and filter the data to gain insights from their own perspectives.
I agree that functionality would be much improved if drill-down was enabled in the dashboard and tiles sourcing the same dataset had cross-filtering enabled. It's not enough to be able to interact with tiles only when they are full-screen. Interacting with source reports often is accompanied with a bit of time-lag, and overall seems less streamlined than dashboards.
At least the dashboard should have slicers and also allow for users to be able to drilldown or filter.
I showed a sample of the dashboard to my manager and he wasn't impressed because he could not drilldown or filter.
When you have compiled an dashboard with differenct tiles in it I think you should be able to interact with the dashboard and filter other objects. At least those based on the same dataset. Otherwise the dashboard is just there to get an overview with no way of diving deeper.
The current approach is good. However, it is confusing. I tried to click on a chart on the dashboard thinking there is something I can do like changing title name etc., but then it keeps navigating to the underlying report. If there is no actions allowed directly on the dashboard, then having user feedback/tooltip would be useful. The way it is not very helpful.
