Re: Preserve filter selection through bookmark

Hi @binayprasai,

 

Nope, current you can't use filter to affect saved bookmark pages.

Please take a look at below link to know about this feature:

Use bookmarks to share insights and build stories in Power BI (Preview)

 

Limitations and considerations

In this preview release of the bookmarks, there are a few limitations and considerations to keep in mind.

  • Custom visuals do not work with bookmarking if they are the source of the filter. If you're using custom visuals to filter elements on a page (for example, the chiclet slicer) and return to that page using a bookmark, the page may be filtered but the custom visual won't be updated to show how the page is being filtered.
  • Cross-highlighting status for a report pane is not saved when you create a bookmark.
  • If you add a visual on a report page after creating a bookmark, the visual will be displayed in its default state. This also means that if you introduce a slicer into a page where you previously created bookmarks, the slicer will behave in its default state.
  • Moving around visuals after a bookmark has been created will be reflected in the bookmark.
  • You must have at least one bookmark in your report, when you publish it to the Power BI service, in order for bookmarks to be available in the service. This is a requirement for each report you publish.
  • Since bookmarks are currently a Preview feature, they're not yet available in Power BI Desktop for Report Server.

In July release of mobile and service, you can share report with slicer and filters.

When openning the shared URL in mobile it will respect the slicers and filters shared.
