Buttons on desktop report not showing in phone view

I have buttons on my desktop report that navigate to different tabs.  When I switch to mobile phone view, i'm not seeting the buttons or have the option to select them.  Any suggestions?

Re: Buttons on desktop report not showing in phone view

Hi @rrhascall 

 

Buttons and button navigation actions are supported in mobile layout.

As you said the mobile layout is not supporting overlay visuals so you will need to place the buttons in other area of the canvas.

Please let us know if you are still experiencing issues with the buttons.

 

Thanks,

Michal

Hmm, not positive buttons are supported in mobile although not sure why they wouldn't be. You could check the Issues forum here:

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/idb-p/Issues

And if it is not there, then you could post it.

If you have Pro account you could try to open a support ticket. If you have a Pro account it is free. Go to https://support.powerbi.com. Scroll down and click "CREATE SUPPORT TICKET".

Thank you for your reply.  It looks like visuals cannot be overlapped on the mobile phone view.  On my web view, i have buttons on top of table cells which serve to navigate to different report tabs when you hover over them.  With the phone view, looks like I have to set up and display buttons separately.

Hi @rrhascall,

I check the official document but not found it mention the button navigation available on mobile app. I think power bi mobile team hasn't designed the 'phone layout' version of the 'navigation' button so it only works on report view.

What's new in the mobile apps for Power BI 

Perhaps you can submit an idea for this requirement.
