How to use buttons to navigate to another report in power bi?

I have a large dataset and am trying to keep my datamodel size down by building a HOME report that the user can then navigate from to get to data in other reports.


I would like to use a button on a report to navigate to pages in a different report.  Similar functionality to using a cross-report drill through only I don't want to select a value from a table to trigger the drill through...I want to select a button (or something that looks like a button) to trigger the drill through.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your reply, I tried that but it opens the report in a separate window rather in the current window the way a drill through from selection in a table does.  Any way to have the button just navigate to the new report rather than open a new window?  Thank you!

@rshanks75 , Button has Web URL Action option, use reports share url in that and try

Hi @amitchandak .  Your suggestion opens the report, but it opens it in another internet tab rather than on the page I already have open.  Using cross-report drill through from a table in PowerBI opens the new report page the way I want (as if you are navigating to another page in the existing open report).  but using the URL opens a new internet tab to open the report...which breaks the UX flow.  Any thoughts on how to open a page from a different report from a button (or text box) that will open the same way that a cross-report drill through works?


Thanks for the help!
