Linking Drill Down Effects to multiple Tabs

I have PowerBI Desktop. I have created 2 dashboards each on their own tab within the same file. I am curious to know if there is a way to link the drill down effect between tabs. For instance when I drill down 1 level in a chart on tab one, all other charts on tab one reflect the change. However, when I click over to tab 2 the data on that tab did not reflect the drill down data chosen. I am wondering if there is a way to link this?

Unfortunately global filtering is not available at this time, please vote this feature in ideas:


In the meantime, if possible, you can try to have everythign in one tab and then pin it as live page in dashboard. Here is more information on it

Hi @davidson929,


As parry2k and Baskar have mentioned above, it is not possible to do it currently. Please vote the idea to make this feature coming sooner.Smiley Happy
