We've gone to the trouble of setting up mobile versions of dashboards and the linked reports. This functionality could use a lot of improvement, but it's a start. However, the tiles in the dashboard open the linked visual in focus mode by default. We can change the link to the report file, but these reports have multiple tabs and we can't specify the tab in the link (that I know of). Specifying a custom link opens the report in a browser window instead of the mobile app.
Is there ANY way to get a mobile dashboard tile to open the linked report TAB by default? I'm aware that we can click the ... elipsis to do this, but that's very clunky and this project is for leadership who are going to ask why in the world they have to do that.
Hoping there's a trick/workaround for this. Thanks.
Maybe you can try to use custom link to point this dashboard/tile to specific report tab.
It's been nearly a year since @cturner's original post, and I am still experiencing the exact same issue.
The fact that there are two different experiences for the same action is annoying and very difficult to explain to the end user.
Can we please get the mobile team to add an option to single-click on a dashboard tile to open the link?
EDIT: I see now that the "set a custom url" is the workaround, but doing this for every single tile on every single dashboard on every single workspace/app I create for my clients is not feasable.
Sorry, no update from my side. I love power BI desktop/service, but we've largely abandoned mobile development until it is vastly improved.
The work around is to define custom link (described here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-dashboard-edit-tile#change-the-default-hyperlink). this will override the default behaviour and will navigate you to the report page defined in the link.
