What happened to Drill Down on reports after the latest update?
A couple days ago I could build a hierarchy on the Axis fields and drill down on different charts. However with the new Report and Data set update. I can't seem to add either Hierarchies, different fields on the same graph or drill down at all.
The reports that come from PowerView (with drilldown enabled) show an error that states too much data is being displayed.
Did this break on the latest update? or was the feature scrapped?
We had to make a few difficult trade-offs to get the visualization framework to a place where it was truly mobile friendly, open for 3rd party custom visualizations and API extensions moving forward. The visualization framework is now completed and should not change again. One of the trade-offs was temporary loss of drill down that you see right now. Our team is working rapidly to get drill down back and implemented in an enhanced manner as soon as possible. In our user studies, we learned few people actually knew that drill down even existed. We want to improve the discoverability, user experience, and capability.
We do have monthly releases. Please make sure that you keep Power BI Desktop updated. There are a lot of fantastic features coming soon.
Also having the same problem although I don't get any error messages. I had a report built in the old interface that used the heiarchy/ drill down feature, and that visualization just doesn't behave the same way in the new interface. I can't drill down in into the bar chart.
I'm hoping this gets fixed in the general availability release as this is an important feature for us.
Hi everyone. I've replied on another thread about hierarchies and this is closely related. We're still working on the experience for hierarchies and drill - we had feedback that the drill capabilities weren't intuitive or discoverable so we're working on a new design. Hopefully you won't have to wait long! In the meantime, if your hierarchies aren't showing up you can unhide the fields that you've used in the hierarchy and use them on your visuals. You still can't add multiple fields to the axis (for example) but that will come soon!
On the subject of drill - if you've got feedback about what you'd like to see in that area, please let us know!
Thanks for your patience!
Errr....yea, seriously. One of the first and most common graphs i/we draw is Year -> Month -> Day (3 fields on the axis) . This is absolute non-negotiable and basic functionality....really, you ripped this out ? What on earth?
Sorry, but Drill Down is one of the most basic functionality and I can't belive that PBI leaks this functionality. Please give us a rough estimate until when this feature will be back. This is a big show stopper.
