Drill Downs Keep Turning Themselves Off

Hi,

 

I have several line charts where the X axis is a date and I want the user to be able to drill down. I keep turning on drill down buttons, but for some reason they keep turning themselves off. I'm not sure if it's opening and closing the pbix file that does it. Or maybe it's when the data updates. Again, not sure.

 

Is this a bug?

 

Thanks,

 

The Geo

Hi @thegeo,

 

I think this is a functional design. When you want to use it, then open it. According to my test, it will be turned off when the file is closed. Let's try to think about this scenario. Someone new to Power BI would say: I click the visual (accidentally maybe), it jumps to somewhere else. I don't know why. I just try to select some points.

 

So this could be a good design. You want to use it, open it.

 

Best Regards!

Re: Drill Downs Keep Turning Themselves Off

Thanks for the answer. Unfortunately, it's not a very satisfactory one. This project is for clients, and they will have to keep turning on drilldowns every time they access a report. 

 

I hope Microsoft will fix this. If I have turned on a drilldown, it's because I want it on.

Hi @thegeo,

 

I would suggest you vote this idea: drill-mode-by-default. Many people have voted. Maybe this feature will come up soon.
