Bookmark options question

Hello everyone,

I actively started using bookmarks only a few ago.
I read the documentation on, but it doesn't talk about the options I highlighted in red:


(P.S.: Aggiorna = Update; Rinonima = Rename; Elimina = Delete).

I don't understand what they are for.

May someone explain it to me, please?

Many thanks!

Basically it allows you to change what is enforced by the bookmark. The easiest example is to create a new blank page. Go to that page. Click your bookmark and you are transported to your page. Now, uncheck Current Page in your bookmark. Go to you blank page and click your bookmark again. You are not transported to your original page.

@ me in replies or I'll lose your thread!!!

So what is the point in unchecking "Current Page"? Is there a use case? It seems to deactivate the bookmark overall!

Ah, now I understand...

If "Data" is checked it shows you filter selection and interations done on visual objects, right?

What about display?

And "All visuals" and "Selected Visuals"?

“data” concerns properties such as filters, slicers, crossfiltering

“display” concerns properties such as spotlight and visibility
