This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise if you attend the course listed below!
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Open the pbix file in the above folder. This file contains some calculations and a slicer:
The aim of this exercise is to add a pop-up button to explain how to use the slicer.
Note that you could add a help pop-up to the slicer by using the new(ish) visual header tooltip feature in Power BI, but for maximum flexibility (and learning) we're going to use bookmarks instead.
To get the slicer popup to work, use a bookmark to save the visibility of a textbox, shape and image:
Attach this to a suitable button positioned on the slicer. The ? help button is good for adding instructions, while the little x is a blank button.
Setting up the bookmark to hide the pop-up is a bit trickier (and is impossible without using the Selection Pane, which can be turned on via the View tab):
You can use the Selection Pane to turn the visibility of visuals on or off: just click the eye symbol next to each. You can rename a visual by changing its title.
Attach this bookmark to the x button on the pop-up, and check that you can display and hide the help panel.
Repeat the process to add information buttons next to the columns in the table:
Note that this technique isn't limited to text boxes (you could have buttons switching chart types, playing music, visiting hyperlinks and loads more!).
Optionally save this report as Pop up and say hi and close it down.
