Hi there, that is how i would expect it to work.

The reason being that a dashboard shows tiles of information and not supposed to be fully interactive, even with the Live Page.

You would have to go into the report to interact with the buttons as you indicated.

FUNCTIONALITY - CONFUSING ?

I could accept that dashboard tiles are intended to be fully non-interactive. 

However, they do exhibit considerable interactivity e.g.

- slicers

- clicking on graph elements

The current offering then is a bit confused. Why not also Buttons ? I created buttons to reset all my slicers to certain configurations, just the sort of thing  that might be required  to complement active slicers in a tile.

 

DOCUMENTATION - INCONSISTENT ?

At web page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-buttons  it indicates that : 

"You can add buttons to reports in Power BI Desktop, and share or publish those reports to the Power BI service to create dashboards that provide an app-like behavior for users."

There is no mention in this article that buttons may not work as expected in tiles.

 

I'm lost and hoping to be put back on the right tracks.

Hi there

As far as I am aware dashboards currently do not consume or work with buttons.

The documentation you listed is by using a button you can pin the output to a dashboard.

Does that make sense?

Well if you mean that the "output" is only the numbers and graphs but not the buttons, then maybe this is an answer that can be worked with. But really, the documentation notes do not make this at all clear, quite the opposite.
