I have updated my powerbi desktop september update.
This month they have really came up with something very interesting and most wanted feature.
But i think it has some cons also.
We can drill through other pages with only the columns that we have used in charts or visuals.
What actually i thought is, If we are using any slicers, the values which we choose from the slicer, it can be filtered through all the rest of pages. But it is not.
Its getting better and better everymonth.
But when i use drillthrough option to drill on other pages, they have provided back button.
But it is not working i think.
http://radacad.com/power-bi-drill-through here in comments one person mentioned that it is too slow.
I have waited for almost 1 hour to check that whether its really working or not.
But no luck.
Any one faced this problem with new update.
I have just tried it on my own Power BI Tenant and a customers BI Tenant where I implemented the change and it works perfectly for me.
Yes, to click back it is necessary to push Ctrl button.
Also about the other question. There is a way to use a Slicer as a Drillthrough launcher. If you select the slicer and go to "Data/Drill" menu on top, there is a new button to make it "drillthrough". Watch the image
But...there is a problem, when I click and go to the drillthrough page, and then come back, this option has been deactivated automatically and I have to click the button to make the slicer a drillthrough launcher again...I think it might be a bug.
I hope some PBI stuff could confirm this issue.
@AlvaroCarmona wow this is cool.
I just tried this one. And yes, as you said when i returned to previous page that option will be disabled.
One more thing that i have observed is, this option is not availbale at powerbi service level.
@AlvaroCarmona have you checked this?.
Am i missing anythig here. Is it availbale at service level.?
if you are in power bi service or desktop, use ctrl + click
if you are using publish to web just click back button
hopefully they can also create button for "Main Report" instead of clicking multiple back to go previous. (if you create multiple drilldown)
I have tested it on my local environment, we can reproduce this issue. We need to Ctrl+Click on this back button to back to previous page. The expected result should be:
When you click this button in reading mode or ctrl+click on this button in editing mode, you will be taken back to the page you were on before.
I have report this issue internally, I will post here if there are any updates.
@v-caliao-msft thank for the reply.
Please dont forget to update if you come up with a solution for this.
And also please look in to the DrillThrough option for slicer as i mentioned above one of the reply.
It is not working at service level.
