Landing on hidden page in Power BI app

Dear experts,

We have a report where a Power App first gets data from API and refreshes Power BI dataset. The data from this report is later exported and used by sales reps. We want to hide the landing page so that it doesn't get exported and only pages with relevant contents get exported.

However, when we access the report from app, it doesn't land on the hidden page. It lands on the first non-hidden page. Is there any way to force the report to land on the hidden page when accessed from app?

When we access the report directly, it lands on the hidden page and behaves the way we want it to.

Cheers,
Vidyadutt

Hi @GilbertQ,

Thanks again. By sharing the link to report within the app, it opens the hidden page (the report link that we get under Links in app settings --> Permissions). This way, it stays in the app and we don't share the report directly to the users. We have decided to provide this link in the Sharepoint page, which is the users' starting point.

Regards, Vidyadutt

Hi @vidyadutt 


What I would do is to ensure that in your PBIX you save it on the page/sheet where you want it to default to.

Thanks @v-easonf-msft. I'll do that.

Hi @GilbertQ,

We saved the report that way. As I mentioned, it works fine when we open the report directly, but not via app.

Hi @vidyadutt 

 

Unfortunately that is the only way I know of

 

The only option I can think of is to go via the app to the page where you want the users to land and send them that particular link?
