How to sort the drillthrough pages?

I have multiple separated pages for drillthrough to, as below, how can I sort the order of these pages? the default order is the paged created order and cannot find where to sort.

For example, I want to sort the 5 pages as:

  • All Bars
  • All Donuts
  • Data Table + Bar
  • Data Table + Donut
  • Data Table

What a horrible default. In what universe would anyone want a drill list to default to created date. Mine as well be random. This is very sloppy. Need ability to sort.

The solution Anton found was to create duplicates of the drill through pages in the wanted order after which you delete the "Duplicate of " - beginning of the page name and it's done.

Delete the original page 2 and page 3.

Thank you Anton for contributing the solution to the Power BI community .

 

 

thanks for the idea, this should be Great for others. But fyi for those who has bookmark, this trick will make you do bookmark again because bookmark lose their original page

Great solution to a problem that I, too, had!  Silly that we have to do this but grateful to the community hear for always having workarounds to these liitaitons.  THANKS!

Hi,

 

I believe the drillthrough is sorted by when the pages were created. So the page that was created first will be the first option in the drillthrough and so on.
