Access reports on left panel defaults to old or hidden pages

I have noticed in the last couple of days using the left hand list of reports/dashboards to navigate reports is annoying opening reports on old and hidden pages?

 

If I navigate to the reports by clicking the workspace name and then selecting reports and then the report I want the report opens ok.

 

Has anyone else noticed this behaviour using the left hand side report list?

Re: Access reports on left panel defaults to old or hidden pages

hi, @gooranga1

The issue has been reported before internally: CRI 57704849

By Design. Hidden pages is not a security feature, just a convenience for hiding DrillThrough pages that don't make sense without a filter context. Hidden pages are not typically navigable in Reading View, but if you have a direct link to that page or you save the report on that page. We open to the page that was open at last save. Please ask user to navigate to a different page in Desktop, Save the report, and then re-publish or upload.

Re: Access reports on left panel defaults to old or hidden pages

Hi @v-lili6-msft,

 

It's a bit tricky to give screen shots as it would contain sensitive information.

 

I have 1 workspace with 2 pbix files published and they were based from the same original pbix file. They were then subsequently developed separately and had pages "hidden" in the desktop application by right clicking the tab and then published.

When the 2 reports were published they had these identically named tabs but they were hidden from view but when I was using the left hand panel I noticed that the default page for one of the reports was one of the hidden tabs. But only if I navigated via the left panel not the workspace name link below.workspacelink.PNG

 

I have worked around this issue by actually physically deleting he hidden tabs in the pbix files which seems to have fixed it but sometimes I like to keep the hidden tabs as users can change their minds again and it saves recreating stuff.
