Breadcrumbs from Dashboard to Report

Hi,

  When we navigate from Dashboard to report till last month, we used to get breadcrumb from Dashboard to report. Like Dashboard --> Report.  We used this functionality to go to report and back to dashboard. Now users are not able to do this and this issue is creating navigation issue for users.

When we navigate we do not get breadcrumbs now. Is this functionality stopped ?

 

Thanks

Vivek

hi, @vivekrs 

It works well in my side, when I click the tile, it goes to the report, could you please share some screenshot with the explanation.

Notes from the field: the breadcrumbs are "responsive" and results appear to vary based on width of the browser window. On a large 4K monitor with the app maximized, they do not work, i.e. match several of the complaints found in this thread. I doubt most end-users work on this scale, hence lack of bug reports.

 

If I scrunch the window down there is a point where behavior is close to expected, namely the elipsis (dots) give you a popup navigation option, back to the home dashboard or back to the apps tab.

 

If you make the window really small, the breadcrumbs disappear.

 

I think the diagnostic value is clear: Responsive = Elusive

Lin,

   When i click tile it goes to report but navigation is not shown in top like :

Previously its showing:

My Workspace --> My Dashboard --> My Report

 

Now its showing:

My Workspace -->  My Report

 

Thanks

I am experiencing the same issue, several months later after your post.

 

Per the attached screenshot, the app starts with a primary dashboard and the user clicks-through to the report named "Show"

 

I would expect the find a link between "Apps >" and "> Show" which would take me back to the home page of the app. (i.e. exactly where they came from)

 

The three dots have no link. This is the problem, not expected behavior for breadcrumb links.

I am also experiencing this same issue.  I need to have the breadcrumb include the dashboard name for the user to easily return to it.
