I think the reason Excel containing the link between pages is that there're occasions referencing cells from other sheets.

However the pages in power bi are visualizations and all the data can be seen in the data view and referenced in the report. So In my personal opinion, I don't see a necessity of that feature, you can switch pages by clicking on the page tab. However you can still report this idea on power bi ideas and people who have the same requirement would vote it up.

100% necessity.  When you accumulate 10 or more tabs for example it would be much more helpful to have a HOME PAGE that allowed a user to navigate with HYPERLINKS to selected views.

 

The tab construct was a great invention 25 years ago BUT Pretty Cro-Magnon when it comes to a modern BI interface.

It's an absolute necessity! How anyone could think it's not, is beyond me??????????????????????????????????????

I agree. It would be faster to sort through a file cabinet, than it is to continuously click through views until you find the one you are looking for.

Re: How to Page Navigation in Power BI Desktop

Hi, in 2017 can I have hyperlinking between pages please?

 

I know, you're going to tell me to vote for this functionality in some other thread.  No thanks.  I'm just going complain about how hopelessly unfunctional Power BI is so more and more people can discover this for themselves via SEO.  Maybe I'll check back in 2018 to see if this has been sorted -- long after I've told everyone steer clear of Power BI.

I think the feature is on the roadmap. See the drillthough page in this video(starts at 52:00).

...well, it's giving you even more like passing filter criteria... A "simple link" between pages is still not possible as far as I know... Or a simple klick on a KPI visualization can't bring you to an other page...
