End users need an easy way to navigate between reports, or from reports to other applications, while still retaining the context of the data they were looking at. Measures can generate URLs to allow navigation, and can be shown as hyperlinks that make it easy to move between reports or applications.

A DAX measure can return a URL, appended with filters corresponding to the data selections made in the report. This can be shown in table and matrix visuals as a hyperlink, dynamically adjusted based on the selections that are made. End users can click this link to open a new tab with the target report shown.

The DAX measure might look something like this:

Link = “http://app.powerbi.com/Report/GUID/&filter=Table1/Category eq “ & SELECTEDVALUE(Products[Category])
