Power BI | Drill-through and bookmarks exercise | Connecting pages using Drillthrough
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 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.
Start by creating the following table and chart using the Drilling down to details.xlsx file found in the above folder (choose to import all of the tables listed).
This is our main data page and the one we will filter through to, when someone uses drill-through on a habitat.
To make this into a page that will be filtered, drag the HabitatName into the Drillthrough filters section of the field well:
Say that you will drill through by the value of the habitat field.
Power BI will create a back button automatically after you add a drill-through field.
The back button is a really handy tool. It returns the user to the page they came from last!
Now to create the page to drill from. On a separate page called Drillthrough table create the following table:
You could also at this point hide the page called Target page that you want to drill to. This prevents anyone getting to that page without using the drill-through.
Surprisingly that is all that you need to do. Now visuals that contain a field include in the Drillthrough filters can be right clicked, to navigate to the filtered page.
As you add more pages that have a drillt-hrough filter on them, more options will appear in the Drillthrough section shown.
Finally the result of all your hard work should be that the hidden report page is automatically filtered:
So if I have 5,322 birds in the hand does that mean they are worth 10,644 in the bush?
Optionally save this as Who you calling a bird.pbix and close it down.
