drill up from child tab to parent tab in power BI dashboards

Hi All,

 

I am new to Power BI and I am stuck in creating a link between parent-child in Power BI.

 

I have a dashboard containg 10 tabs. One of these tabs is  parent of another tab. I have a table in parent tab that fter right clicking on each row of it, you will drill through the child tab. Is there any way to go back to the parent tab instead of finding the name of parent tab among 10 tabs and clicking on it? 1 option that I couldn't implement is creating a hyper link in child tab that user could go back to parent tab by clicking on it. I appreciate if someone could help me with this requirement.

 

Kind Regards,

Re: drill up from child tab to parent tab in power BI dashboards

@tooba,

As soon as you create a parent-child drill through relationship between your tabs, you should be able to see a back arrow in the top left corner of your tab.

 

Do check if you are seeing that back arrow in your report

 

Ctrl + Click on the back arrow, and this will navigate you back to the parent page.

Re: drill up from child tab to parent tab in power BI dashboards

Hi there,

 

Thanks for your quick update. I can't find any  back arrow in my child dashboard. Following is my parent dashboard:

after clicking on '_project', following child tab will be opened(parent and child tabs are different):

but there is no back arrow:(

Hi,

As soon as you set drill through filters, a back arrow automatically is created in power BI.

 

PFB screenshot for reference (I have circled the back arrow and the drill-through filters section)

Do check for this. If still not available, may be you would have deleted it unknowingly. In such case, remove existing drill-through and re-establish drill-through again. The Arrow should appear again.

 

Hope this helps!!
