Open report using hyperlink in the same tab of a web browser

Hi,

 

How can I navigate between several pages of a report using a hyperlink?

 

Basically, I want to set some filters on a report which I have to pass via a hyperlink.

Currently when I append the report name with ...?filter=... the page opens in a new window.

 

I'd like the new page to open in the same window and also have a back button which could navigate back to the original page. 

How can I achieve this? Any help would be appreciated!

Is there any reason you cannot use bookmarks?

Re: Open report using hyperlink in the same tab of a web browser

The idea is that I have a common chart in a page of the report.

 

In another page, let me call it loosely a dashboard, I have some buttons where some information via a filter is stored in the form of a hyperlink. All works, except the launch and the back button.

 

So the link would look like 

 

https://app.powerbi.com/groups/.../reports/.../?filter=tablename>/<columnname eq 'search string'

Re: Open report using hyperlink in the same tab of a web browser

To add a little clarification, the idea behind being able to open the in the same report window (and the same tab of the browser) is so that the Back button functionality is available.
