Bookmarks options

Hi, I have become a big fan and user bookmarks for my Power BI but I would like to know more about the options after Delete, when to leave it to check and when to uncheck them? Thanks in advance for any help in my inquiry. 2018-07-28_4-53-46.jpg

Re: Bookmarks options

Here is an article that has a lot about how they used bookmarking:

There are also lots of videos on it:

In short though, Data is going to preserve slicer and filter selections.

Display will preserve spotlighting and whether or not visuals are visible or not

Page will take the user to the specified page that is visible at the time of the bookmark

 

It's a lot of trial and error to get the specific effects that you want. For example, I have never had a reason to not check Page. But, you might want to uncheck Data if you want to spotlight and hide certain visuals but want the user's slicer and filter selections to be preserved when you do so.

From:

"You can also select whether each bookmark will apply data properties, such as filters and slicers, the display properties such as spotlight and its visibility, and page changes that presents the page that was visible when the bookmark was added. These capabilities are useful when you use bookmarks to switch between visual types - in which case you would likely want to turn data properties off, so filters aren't reset as users change visual types."

 

Emphasis added.

Re: Bookmarks options

Hi @Greg_Deckler,

 

I'm just tagging onto the end of this as it's related to what I'm trying to do.

 

I have one page with 2 charts on it. I want to set up a small button/icon next to each chart that will allow me to show the data in a different chart type. I've added some images to illustrate what I'm looking to do:

This would be my default view. If I click on the icon to the top right of the stacked bar chart I want it to change to a 100% stacked and leave the line chart intact, like this:

 

02.PNG

 

There's also an icon at the top right of the line chart that I would like to use to amend it. So in the following image I've swapped around both charts:

 

03.PNG

 

I wonder if there's any combination of bookmark options I could use to achieve this? Data would be deselected, but if I deselected Current Page and All Visuals, would that work? What happens when you deselect All Visuals?

 

Any suggestions?

Re: Bookmarks options

@Greg_Deckler I was able to get the answer I needed from the following YouTube clip:

Which was posted on the following thread:

Thanks,
