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?
This is fundemental to all customers. every comparative solution has this functionality and we need to be able to show customers this capability. weve managed to get 2 customers on board for GA and they are expecting this finctionality as we've already shown it to them!!! please at least provide an eta so we can manage their expectations.... and help a partner out too..;-)
So I logged into my Power BI today and noticed something new. The option to go to the old canvas or the new canvas is back on the top right corner on reports. Going back to the old canvas brings back Drill Down and Hierarchies. However i havent tried reating a new report from the data set and see if you can add extra fields to make the drill down.
But at least something is something and I can show the Drill down functionality on some reports while using the new canvas to show the "prettyness" on other reports.
Had update from support. New users won't get the 'old experience' and therefore they won't be able to use the drill feature.
The power BI team are working on the new drill down feature which will address many of the comments / improvements submitted regarding the way in which the old drill down worked. They are looking to release this feature 'asap'... With no expected due dates.
I'm implementing two new customers... They wouldn't have gone ahead if it didn't have drill down 😞 also have a demo to large UK government body on the 13th! Ouch..
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.
