URL Action - Open in same window

Hello, 

 

Could you please answer the following: I'm currently working on Employee Attendance Tracking workbook.

While building the Home Page, I added the employees pictures so when the manager will click on a certain one, it will redirect him to Employee details dashboard. The method used is using the bookmaks (on each employee dashoard). 

The problem is that the manager wants to have only 2 dashboards in the report - the 1st is the Home page that contains the pictures and the 2nd one is the Employee details - How can i do that using URL Action and open the URL in the same window when a picture is selected.

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Rita.

Re: URL Action - Open in same window

Hi, @RitaChebl 

 

I'd like to suggest you use URL filters to filter the result page. For further information, you may refer to the article . Here is my sample data.

You may copy the link and append at the end of link as follows.

 

.../ReportSection?filter=Products/UnitPrice eq 18
.../ReportSection?filter=Products/UnitPrice eq 30
.../ReportSection?filter=Products/ProductID eq 40

 

 

Then you could make the image selected, go to 'Format image', click 'Action', set 'Type'  as 'Web URL' and 'Web URL' as the corresponding link.

When it is saved and published to service, you can click the image and it will go to the result page filtered by URL parameters. Here are the results.

Re: URL Action - Open in same window

Hi, @RitaChebl 


Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario.

Table:

You may create three bookmarks on Detailed pages and apply the corresponding visual level filter  to the visual.

Then you may make the corresponding image selected, go to 'Format image', click 'Action', set 'Type' as 'Bookmark' and 'Bookmark' as the specific bookmark.

Finally when you ctrl+click the image it will go to the specific bookmark of Detailed page.

Re: URL Action - Open in same window

Hello @v-alq-msft ,

 

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate.

 

Hence, the current problem is that the manager doesn't want the bookmarks Method but the URL Method: 

I copied the URL of the "Report details" from powerbi service and added a filter to it as the following: 

URL of report details: https://app.powerbi.com/groups/52131e3d-7c2d-4fd4-962f-a4c84f49ea35/reports/a5f2faa8-76f4-401b-a037-...

Employee Page :https://app.powerbi.com/groups/52131e3d-7c2d-4fd4-962f-a4c84f49ea35/reports/a5f2faa8-76f4-401b-a037-...?filter=Union~2FName-ID%20eq%20%27Caren%20ABBOUD%20-%203%27

So when the manager will click on an employee image it will redirect him to the above link.

How can i open this link in the same window?

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Rita.

Re: URL Action - Open in same window

Hello @v-alq-msft ,

 

Thank you sooo much !!!!

is it possible to open it in the same window?

For example, when choosing a picture, a new window tab will open -- is it possible to run it in the same window?

 

Thank you again,

 

Rita
