PowerBI report with mutliple pages, require a different landing page in mobile and desktop

I have a report with four pages, one of these pages has a mobile view, this page also has a desktop variant. 

 

I have a requirement that when a user uses a mobile the report opens on a specific page, but when they use a PC they are presented with a specific different page. No i can't merge the pages, the contents are specific to the context when the device is used. 

 

 

Is there a way of setting a powerBI's opening page on the basis of the device being used to access the report?

Hi @moloughlin,

 

There is no setting in power BI to open a specific page based on the device.

What you can do is to use shape/button and change their formatting setting to navigate to Mobile as I did in the following example:

 

Here is a report with 3 pages, and only one of them should be viewed in Mobile:

For the web pages I added one of the shape/buttons from the desktop layout to the mobile layout and modified few settings:

  • The action – change it to a page navigation button
  • The text – change it to let the report viewer to tap in order to view mobile

So, when the viewer open the report in the mobile device he gets the first page that contain the button:

And when taping on the button he will see the mobile report:

Do you think that this solution will solve the problem?

 

Thanks,

Michal
