Collapse navigation pane in full screen view

Need to be able to collapse the navigation pane in an app so that users have a true full screen report that is not restricted by the navigation pane

Hi pabeader,


Thanks for your post.

However this does not solve our issue.

The ?collapseNavigation=true does not work on the new navigation pane introduced to Apps around spring 2019.

It works on the old navigation pane in dashboards, reports etc but not in the Apps where you have pages in the pane.


Best regards


Sorry, I missed the image you provided.  Can you collapse that navigation at all?  I don't see any way to collapse it so I doubt there is a URL parameter that can do it either.


No, you can't which is why this issue was created 😊.

Best regards



This issue is still not resolved as far as I can see.

Anybody found a solution to make this work?


Thank you.


Best regards,



Hi Torben,


No, it has not been "solved".

I believe it's more a missing feature than an issue. But I hope that it will be implemented soon.




Is this still an issue or any solutions ? 


I'm looking for the same feature to expand and collapse the navigation panel, as it occupies good amount of space on the screen.


Are there any updates on this thread? The Navigation Pane on the left of the App is really taking too much space.. would love to have it collapsable...

Hi Jimmy,


I am still certain that we are talking about two different things.

The thread you referred to is about the Visualization and fields pane to the right.

In this thread we would like the possibility to collapse the new navigation pane in apps to the left.

The previous and old navigation pane is collapsable. New one containing the reports pages isn't.




Hi Kaj,
Yes as per your response, the left-side navigation pane should be made collapsible or option to make it hidden in full screen.

Apologies for the delayed response to the thread.

@upeshchavda ,


If you mean an power bi app, you can click View and select "Off" in Selection pane and Bookmarks pane.



If you mean the third-party app, I would suggest you to refer to this demo.

What @upeshchavda means is that the new navigation pane in the app is not collapsable:
