Drill through to another report

Report authors can now set up drillthrough actions across reports published to the Power BI service. This is important because sometimes an author will have multiple reports, with additional information or levels of detail, and would like to contextually transition from one report to another. The end users' experience allows easy contextual jumps by simply selecting a source visual in a report and drilling into another report that is now filtered to the same context as the source visual. Provided that the schema of the reports match, the following filter context will get applied to the destination report:

  • Report, page, and visual level filters affecting the source visual

  • Cross-filtering and cross-highlighting that impacts the source visual

  • Slicers on the page and sync-slicers

  • URL parameters
