passing a selected bookmark name to a text field

I have a report that uses 17 different slicers to select the desired records from two tables for various visuals.  I have 48 programs, each with bookmarked selections from one or more slicers, along with another bookmark that clears all slicers.  I have 4 different report pages.  I would like to be able to populate a text box with the name of the bookmark selected and have it update with each selection to show the last selection made.  All of the samples I've found for dynamic labeling seem to be conditioned on passing the selected value from a column, but in my case there is no such column available as each bookmark may utilize slicers on any variety of columns.

 

If you select View from the Bookmarks pane it will display the name of the bookmark at the bottom of the page, similar to: Bookmark 2 of 48, All Cleared.  However, with the bookmark name showing at the bottom of the page you can't move to another page without first exiting from the View option in the bookmarks pane.  The display of the information when choosing the View option strongly suggests that same value that displayed information on the bottom of the page should be available for passing to a text box on the different report pages.

Re: passing a selected bookmark name to a text field

Hi @pduffer ,

 

It is not supported to implement your demand "populate a text box with the name of the bookmark selected and have it update with each selection to show the last selection made" in Power BI Desktop currently .There is an idea about this issue, please vote it up, https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/31789180-link-comments-to-bookmar... , to improve the Power BI Desktop.

 

It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft Office products . What’s more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.

 

We also submitted this feedback to the product group internally, so that the product group can pay attention to this problem and speed up the issue repairing.

 

Best Regards,

Amy
