When clicking on certain elements of a visual, I can control the interaction this selection has on other visuals within the report, but I was wondering if there is the ability to completely disable the clickability of a visual? I don't want the end users to be able to click on the visual at all, so neither the selected visual or other visuals would be highlighted? Tooltips should still be viewable on hover.

This feature should be available for use in both service and desktop.

More information on the unsuccessful attempts people have made trying to achieve this with graphs/charts can be found here:

We need this feature. We have hyperlinks in one of the columns and we cannot cover the entire table in a transparent object. Covering half the table and leaving the other half is a bad experience . Leads to more confusion.

Ok, after 2 years, more than 680 votes "it still needs votes".


I wonder - does Microsoft user Feedback take into account at all?

It's unbelievable that it's impossible to disable marking of table. There are some strange workarounds like putting of transparent rectangle over table, but it's really bizarre to do it this way!
Microsoft, i would really appreciate if you make it possible to disable marking of visuals.
Thanks in advance.

I can't even believe this is a feature that needs to be requested! Please implement this.

R

How can this still not be enabled, 2 years after it's requested! It should be simple to add and would save me a huge amount of time.

This needs to be a feature. Exactly how slicers and pivot tables can be edited in Excel, we need that for Power BI.

Any update here?

no brainer - give an option to switch on or off static (non clickable, not interactive) visuals please.

Currently, we can use a function in "Query reduction" , which is "Disable cross highlighting / filtering by default". this can disable all interactions at once. But may need to be careful to use it as it will disable all interaction.
It's still worthy to have a feature to disable interaction in bulk for some visuals, not all of them.

R

Needed.
