Navigating back to dashboard doesn't work well

When you click on a visual on your dashboard you go through to the reports,


From there I can drill through and click back to the main report again.


But going back to the dashboard isnt set up very well


If you click on the dashboard name in the bread crumb trail at the top you are taken out of the reports to the main page so you have to click the dashboard again.


I tried adding a button to the report, Back to main menu but this opens up the dashboard into another browser page and there is no way to tell it to open in the same browser


The only way to do it is to click the back button but I dont think this is a good user experience because every where else you can click a button.


This would be sorted if you could add the dashboard URL to a button and tell it to open within the same browser.


Does anyone else find this annoying?

Hi @DebbieE ,

Based on my test, current power bi not support to open button url on same tab. Maybe you can configure your web browser settings to force open new link on current page or submit an idea about add options to control this.
