Publish to Web - Is it possible to customize the share message and link

Hi everyone,

 

I have multiple reports that are published on a single webpage using Publish to web option. I see some sharing options down at the bottom right. I wanted to know

  • Is it possible to customize the message that gets shared? 
  • Is it possible to customize the URL being shared? for instance, our page has multiple sections, and we would like to share the specific report/section that users click share on. Is that even possible?
  • If a user filters a report to a specific timeframe, and then clicks share, is it possible that the shared report is also filtered?

 

I have been unable to find all this information anywhere. Would love some help here.

Hi @mansivora,

 

  • Is it possible to customize the message that gets shared? 

I'm afraid not.

 

  • Is it possible to customize the URL being shared? for instance, our page has multiple sections, and we would like to share the specific report/section that users click share on. Is that even possible?

Yes. Based on my test, if a report contains multiple report pages, the shared URL is similar, expect for the appended part

"&pageName=ReportSection069bdd8eaa61247a1705"

 

  • If a user filters a report to a specific timeframe, and then clicks share, is it possible that the shared report is also filtered?

No. Sharing a report doesn't keep the state of slicer selection, it always shares the original view.

Thanks @v-yulgu-msft, this helps. 

 

To clarify the second point: we were embedding the IFrame code on a page we built. That webpage has multiple sections and each section has a different Power BI report (single page reports) embedded in it. Now when we try to share any of the Power BI report, it shares the generic URL of the web page and not the particular section. I was hoping if there is anyway to share the relevant section, instead?
