How to keep filters when changing bookmark

My problem is that I've created a report (page) which has several bookmarks with different visuals and one set of filters for the report. Is there a way to keep the filter when changing the bookmark and the visual on it?


Can't figure a way to do this but maybe you can help me out?

When you select the more options (3 dots) next to the bottom you see the option Selected visuals.

The Default option is all visuals. Change that


Next you select all visuals that you want affected by your bookmark and select the 3 dots and select update.


What i do is put my filters / slicers on top of my select list and the visuals / data below that. This way i can easily select the items i want to be affected with click and shift click.

Have you tried just leaving "page" and unselecting also visual on the bookmark settings?

Hi @Kosantti 


You can change the property of bookmark by not selecting data field shown in follwing screenshot.



This might solve your problem. 

Please accept as a solution & kudos if it helps you.

This solves my problem of keeping filters but unfortunately does not help me that much since each visual has specific setup (top 10, bottom 10, etc.) and these dissapear when I unselect data and change the bookmark.

Not sure if this would help, but have you tried using the "Edit Interactions" in the format tab? This can break the link between a selected filter and visual. Not sure about bookmarks though, I don't use them.

Unfortunately doesn't seem to be solution when working with bookmarks.

Hi @Kosantti,


You can go to the bookmark pane and with a right button click on top of the bookmark you want and unselect the data check, that would fix it.


Tell me if it worked, if so please mark as solution.
