Drillthrough Question

hi All,

Is it possible to Drillthrough on a chart without selecting a bar?


I have a home page that has the main bar chart, user will click on a bar and selects a month and drills through to the details page, all good so far.

when they are on the second page, they have multiple options again which they want to see diffeent details of but they dont want to select a bar.

now I have given them two drill buttons on the home page to select which detail page they want to see. 

but they are asking if they can go to the 3rd page from the secon page without clicking on the bar

I have tried navigation but that doesnt take all the filters (they dont have slicers - only filters on bar chart)

has anyone done this before? 

I feel like its very simple but just cant be done via drill through.

Hi @nwiltshire ,


You can use the drill-through feature in Power BI to navigate to a specific page without clicking on a bar. You can create a button with Drill through as the action type and select the drillthrough page as the Destination. Please refer to

@nwiltshire , Navigation with Sync slicer can work.

But I have recently seen you can drill Through from a card visual. Just write text on the card "click" and enable drill through

Thanks, do you have more details on how to do it with a card?


I cant do slicers with this project.
