Hyperlinks Not Working from Dashboard on Power BI Mobile

So I have created a dashboard with hyperlinks that connect to a specific record in Salesforce from Power BI. Works great on the Desktop and on the web, but it doesn't work on the Power BI app. 

 

I'm wondering if there's a way to get hyperlines to work on the Power BI App, if there's something that I might be doing wrong, or if there's a setting I need to adjust.  I'm specifically using the iPad version of the Power BI App, which is version 9.1. My iPad is on OS version 10.0.2.

 

Any advice would be great.


Thanks,

Jonathan

Hi @jschlereth,

 

To clarify your question - on what tile tyoe are you using hyperlinks?

Can you attach a screenshot or just answer this question by saying if the tile contains a live report page/table/other single visual?

Are there more than one hyperlinks on a single tile on a dashboard or one hyperlink per tile?

 

Thanks,

Yaron

Hi @yaronc,

Thanks for the response. To clarify, I'm currently using a table and listing out the URL for each record. So there is typically a listing of records each with its own URL depending on how the user has sliced the data. 

 

If you're familiar with SalesForce, the URL for each record is simply a combination of a static component (salesforce.com) combined with an ID (003j000.........) so that the user goes to the specific contact record. Right now, it's not a live table due to the number of contact records, but it's on a regular refresh schedule. 

 

And when I tested it again this morning, I can click on the link, it will turn yellow onclick, but then nothing happens. So it appears the app doesn't recognize that I'm clicking on a URL. I also have tried "holding down" on the URL in order to try copying it, but that option does not appear.
