october 2017 update - bookmark doesn't work

Hi team,
Great features available in this month, the bookmark will help us a lot.
In my sample, the bookmark doesn't work when I applied filter. For example, I have two charts (cities and sales):
1 - click at then colunm to apply filter by city. Another chart show the sales for this city, ok!
2 - in the bookmark pane, I clicked at Add button and define the name.
3 - I repeat the steps 1 and 2 for another city.
the problem is when I click at the bookmark into the pane, show all charts without filter. I believe that each bookmark should show the city filtered. Any tips I will appreciate.
Thanks a lot.





When you create a bookmark, the following elements are saved with the bookmark:

  • The current page
  • Filters
  • Slicers
  • Sort order
  • Drill location
  • Visibility (of an object, using the Selection pane)
  • The focus or Spotlight modes of any visible object

Bookmarks do not currently save the cross-highlighting state.

So you need to add your cities to a slicer, then the bookmark will work as your expected.

Thanks @v-caliao-msft, but I guess that to be a good idea implement this feature at all controls.



If you have any concern on this feature, you can submit your idea on the link below. If this feature was mentioned by mulitple users, product team will consider to add this feature to next release.


Thank you for your understanding.

When you mention Slicers, I presume you mean just the built-in Slicer. So for example, if I was using the Chiclet Slicer from the Store, it would not save that. Is that correct?

Since they just released the feature, I'm hoping that this is just an early bug.
