Automatic switching of pages from paginated reports in the Power Bi Service

Hi there,


I have created a paginated report and published it to the Power Bi Service. In the report there is a tablix that creates one page per group. You can now manually switch through the pages in the Power BI service. 


How do you configure that the pages in the Power BI service switch automatically every X seconds?


Or is there a way to start directly on the second page, for example?

Just in case someone encounters the same problem later. I have now found another way that works for my use case. I already filter the data in the SQL query so that only one page is returned for the report.

To do this, however, you first have to calculate for each data record on which page it will be displayed later in order to be able to filter afterwards in terms of time when only page 1 is displayed, when page 2 and so on.

The whole thing is quite cumbersome and would not have to be done if paginated reports would simply have the possibility to switch the pages automatically in the Power BI service.

Hi @Bodo 


This is not available in paginated reports at this time, but I think your idea makes sense and you can submit an idea for it at: Home ( and wait for users with the same needs as you to vote for you to help make it happen as soon as possible.


Hopefully this will be possible in a future release.


Best Regards,
Yulia Xu

Hi @v-xuxinyi-msft 

I did submit the idea now. You can find it here:

If someone else knows another solution in the meantime, I'm still interested 😉
