Drill UP and Through in iPAD

Dear Team, We have created reports in Power-BI service using Drill up/down and Drill through and all those reports are embedded in Web portal. Now customer is planning to access to this reports via iPAD.

1. Drill up/Down - We have enabled the icons arrows so that customer can drill up/down to see the details by clicking he row but as per the need they do not wanted to see the hierarch when there reports drills down. Is there any way to hide the Hierarchy?

2. Drill Through : How to avoid the “right click” and “Drill through” in iPAD ? is there a way we can enable this function by any other method instead of the Right click..which is not possible in iPAD.

Hi @Anonymous ,

1. Drill up/Down - You could try to hide the visual header that can make users just view it.


2. Drill Trough - You could try to long tap the data point firstly. After researching, it just works on some visuals. If it doesn't work, you could vote up the similar ideas. Hope the team fix it quickly.

There were some icons that show up in a different place that allow some of this.  Long press - also try.  We told them about this a year's out in ideas as well.  We use the ipads for our field, so this was an issue long time back...
