Bookmark Navigator Glitch/Bug

Bookmark Navigator tabs only gets selected or highlighted if someone click on it, or if the bookmark is part of the group that this visual use. If another bookmark tried to update this visual, it will not capture which tab is selected and replicate that when this bookmark selected. 

 

Example:

 

We have bookmark navigator with two Tabs (Tab1 and Tab2)

The same bookmark navigator use one group of bookmarks ("Test Bookmark Navigator")

and here is how this bookmark group looks like.

we added "Reset" bookmark, which either save the bookmark for all visual or selected visual (both doesn't work anyway) while the "Tab 1" is selected.

 

if you press "Tab 1" bookmark, the "Tab 1" will be selected/highlighted

if you press "Tab 2" bookmark, the "Tab 2" will be selected/highlighted

if you press "Reset" bookmark, the "Tab 1" and "Tab 2" selection/highlight will not be refreshed and will stay with what it was before pressing "Reset" button.

 

Conclusion: “Bookmark Navigator” Visual will not update the tab selection if the bookmark selected is not part of the group that is linked to. Meaning, the rest of the bookmarks (Like the “reset” in the above example) has no impact on what is selected or highlighted in the Bookmark navigator.

 

Solution: Power BI developers team need to ensure that anytime a person add or update a bookmark, it should include the status (selection) of the bookmark navigator tabs, which should be updated if we select “All Visual” or “Selected Visual” while we have selected the bookmark navigator.

Hi @Ash2022 ,

 

If you would like to suggest some feature improvements. I have found users with similar needs to you here Ideas (powerbi.com) , you may vote the idea and comment  to improve this feature. It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft Office products . What’s more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.

Thank you Selina,

 

 I opened the link you provided and it is just a full list of all ideas, which is great, but I already know about it, and 500 Pages of ideas are definitely not close to the issue I am reporting about. But just a thought, these ideas are posted since 2015 and it appear to be the top voted and was planned to be implemented since 2017, which is 5 years ago and hasn't seen the lights yet, I would assume any fix to the issue I am asking, only if it gets voted and gets a priority, I might see it before I retire, which is in in the next 20 years from now! lol, I am sorry to be sarcastic, but I think Power BI and Microsoft team need to do better in the timelines to fix, improve or implement what they find as good idea or a bug. I only start using Power BI (about 7 months ago) and already start to feel a lot of frustration on lack of many important things, especially for a tool that we pay a huge amount of money to use which is a premium price compared to the rest of Microsoft tool that are maintained better and it is only cost a one time pay like MS Office.

We have found this bug today for a customer. A bookmark navigator in a target page is not being affected by the bookmark navigator that works as main page navigator.

Hi @Webon007 ,

I gave up on waiting for a fix, it is better to just create your own way, I found it better to duplicate the button by the number of bookmarks is better. e.g. if you have two views/bookmarks and you have two buttons, then you duplicate these by two, and you have each set with one that work and look as selected button, and each Set of these button show or hide based on your selection. This is can be bad if you have too many bookmarks/view, e.g. if you need 6 Buttons, you will create 6x6 = 30 buttons. But that is the only solution, until they fix their bug.
