Drill Through from Manager to Employee

Hi community!

I have an App with multiple reports.

One of them is focused the Manager and one of them is based on the Employess. It is not possible to merge both reports.

In the data model there is a table that shows the relationship between manager and employee.

Is there any way / workaround to do a drill through from the manager report to the employee report?

Hi @joshua1990 ,

 

Here I create a sample to have a test.

Manager Report:

Employee Report:

Although the schemas in each report don't have to be the same, the fields you want to pass must exist in both data models. The names of the fields, and the names of the tables they belong to, must be identical. The strings must match, and are case-sensitive.

You can see there is a Relationship table in both tables. It is the same and it looks like as below.

Then set up and configure the cross-report drill through in both reports. Here I add [Manager] column from Relationship table into filter field in Employee report. Make sure you use [Manager] column from Relationship in your visual in Manager table as well.

You can follow this offical blogs to learn more details. Publish reports to Power BI Service and check the result.
