Create an App-like Experience in Power BI with BookmarksIt really is an awesome feature and something that I know a lot of people have been asking for. In my blog post today, I am going to demonstrate how to create book marks, and then create a home page and link the images through to specific bookmarks , which will enable a seamless navigation experience for report consumers. The first thing that I did was to ensure that I had the bookmarking preview feature enabled. Then also to ensure that I could see the bookmarks pane. What I did next was to then create a home page with some images and link it to a specific bookmark.
Power BI - Toggle Button and Bookmarks
In this tutorial, you will learn how to use bookmarks in Power BI to create interesting and useful reports. Bookmarks were introduced a few months ago and they can be very useful to capture key data and create powerful reports. In this example, we will be creating a report with bookmarks that show the sales data for four individual countries.
Use bookmarks to share insights and build stories in Power BI
In October of this year, Power BI introduced an exciting new preview feature: bookmarks. Now, views of pages configured by slicers, filters, sort directions, and the new show or hide options in the selection pane can easily be saved as bookmarks. Before we get started, I recommend checking out the Power BI report highlighted throughout this post online using Power BI Service , or trying the embedded version below. When a report like this one is viewed online, especially in full screen mode using the bottom right corner , it becomes an immersive, intuitive, app-like experience. Note: Since bookmarking is still in beta, bookmarks cannot be created in the service, but they can be used there. Bookmarks in Power BI differ from those in Tableau in both behavior and general use.
Using bookmarks in Power BI help you capture the currently configured view of a report page, including filtering and the state of visuals, and later let you go back to that state by simply selecting the saved bookmark. You can also create a collection of bookmarks, arrange them in the order you want, and subsequently step through each bookmark in a presentation to highlight a series of insights, or the story you want to tell with your visuals and reports. There are many uses for bookmarking. You can use them to keep track of your own progress in creating reports bookmarks are easy to add, delete, and rename and you can create bookmarks to build a PowerPoint-like presentation that steps through bookmarks in order, thereby telling a story with your report. There may be other uses, too, based on how you think bookmarks could best be used.
