Tabs along the bottom: Keep server report settings when republish from desktop

From ergonomic resons it is sometime interesting to set the tabs along the bottom instead  the lateral side.

This can be adjusted in the report setting.

However, when a report is republish from desktop (because updates, ...), this setting is removed.

Can it be memorized, or can this setting be set from desktop too ?

Hi Janey,

 

You may know that some adjustments in a report can only be done in desktop (add a new dax formula, edit power query, ...).  So the back and forth is almost unavoidable.

Let's take a similar exemple: "Change default visual interaction from cross highlighting to cross filtering." This can be edit BOTH in the desktop option and in the server. And when it is set in the desktop (in the option / current report) it is transfered when published.

I created this ticket to mention  that this type of conservation of  setting is worth for the 'Display report pages as tabs along the bottom of the report.'

Hi, @Arnaud_R 

 

It’s my pleasure to answer for you.

According to your description, you republished the report,then the setting disappeared.

You should know that when you republish the report, it will replace your dataset, almost equal to start over.

'Display report pages as tabs along the bottom of the report.' is for 'Reading View'. So it is recommended that you create a complete data model in the desktop, and other changes can be edited on the service instead of republishing the report, then the settings won't change. As for the data update, you can set the gateway to refresh.
