power bi drill down button

Hi

 

i noticed that in order that users could use the "drill down" feature they have to click on the drill down button .

 

is there any way visuals can automaticly be set to drill down mode without need for the user to click on that button prior to drill down?

 

thanks

Hi, @ellevy 

 

Because not everyone needs to drill down the data, there is an option for those who need it.Thanks.

Hi, @ellevy 

 

This 'drill down' feature is to see if you need to click on a data point in the table to drill down. If it is enabled, clicking the row and column will automatically drill down. If not, clicking the row and column will just highlight the selected data. According to different needs, determine whether to enable this function.

If you are just concerned about the report users, in your desktop version, drill down to the level you want the visual to appear for the user, and then publish it.

This way user would see drilled down visual without his intervention.

users would want to drill down by themselfs .. i just don't get why the user has to click on a button in order to do the drill down if i already set it on the visual ...

I am referring to the drill down button that give the user/ me the option to drill down. However even that I click on it (fill it black) the user don’t see this and has to click on it again for doing drill downs
