custom link

I am having problems adding a custom link. I watched the video showing how to do that but I think it is an older version of Power BI  -https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-edit-a-tile-in-a-dashboard/#hyperl...  How do I add a custom URL link to a tile in the current Power BI?

Re: custom link

I discovered the problem. You are not allowed to create custom links when you pin a visual (the whole report). You can only create custom links for individual visuals. Perhaps, Microsoft will change this with later versions Smiley Happy

Re: custom link

Hm, not sure why that "Set custom link" checkbox is greyed out. I wonder if that is a Pro feature for some bizarre reason? I don't have any problem setting that on my tiles.


Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Maybe this is the case. Do you have the pro version?

In addition, here is the idea for supporting Individual Custom Links for Pinned Live Pages on Power BI Ideas. You can vote it up and add your comments there to make this feature coming sooner.
