Make Drill Down Buttons more intuitive

 

Hello guys.

 

We had some great improvement in drill down a while ago, with the two options in-line and hierarchical.

After a while, the interface was redesigned, I guess making the buttons vector, and it was all good.

 

But one thing that can be improved is the "fix drill down button". All my users, and me sometimes click on it by mistake thinking that it would do what the icon shows (go down) but instead it fixes the drill down to use with left mouse cliking. I know that, but my users have no idea what is going on after they click it. Here, an overview of the situation:

Drill

My suggestion is to separate up and down behavior with a vertical line, and change the "fix drill down icon" to a pin, that represents better its behaviour. I believe lots of people will agree that the way it is today creates some confusion.

 

So, this is my contribution, I hope it helps. Power BI is a wonderful tool and it grows even better with community feedback.

 

@Amanda Please take a close look at this!
