Filter a report by geographic location in the Power BI mobile apps
|iPhones||iPads||Android phones||Android tablets||Windows 10 phones|
When you look at a Power BI report on your mobile device, do you see a little pushpin icon in the upper-right corner? If so, then you can filter that report based on your geographic location.
You can only filter by location if the geographic names in the report are in English; for example, "New York City" or "Germany". Windows 10 tablets and PCs don't support geographic filtering, but Windows 10 phones do.
Power BI mobile app support for phones using Windows 10 Mobile will be discontinued on March 16, 2021. Learn more
