Dynamically set default report page

We have a requirement to land a user dynamically to Page 1 or Page 2 of a report based on data in the model. Essentially we want the default landing page of the report to be dynamic based on a measure or column in our model.
Does Power BI Support this functionality?

HI @Aravinth84 ,

 

The answer is "yes and no".  Don't you love those?  The Default landing page is not currently a setting that you can just set.  Howver, the page and settings that you have on your desktop file are what become the opening page on the Service when it is published.  HOWEVER, as soon as the user changes the screen, it becomes cached (in most browsers) and that becomes the new page for them when they come back.  And, in your question, you are specifically trying to tie a measure or column to set that default and I don't think that is possible.

That said, if you really want everybody to start at a certain point based on the measure, why not set a bookmark based on that measure?  

In the meantime, why not create an idea for this option (or find an existing one) and vote for that to see if Microsoft will add this functionality?

I would appreciate Kudos if my response was helpful. I would also appreciate it if you would Mark this As a Solution if it solved the problem. Thanks!
