How to create a link directly to a bookmarked datapoint within a report

We've recently set up a live dashboard that ingests data and updates hourly.

To fully utilize this new dashboard, we are changing our reporting processes; we no longer will be using offline datasets/graphs/screenshots, instead we want to provide links that will take the readers (who have PBI pro) directly to our report's used to build the dashboard.

 

To make this effective, we need to be able to link directly to a report page that has a bookmark applied so that the data is highlighted so the reader lands on the report with the data we want them to see already filtered.

 

How do we do this?

hi @Jlucci - once the report is published to the service when you navigate between bookmarks PowerBI will generate URLs as per bookmark view - you should be able to capture that from the Browser address bar and use it to share with users for navigation

 

See below screenshot - the text highlighted in RED was generated on navigation to one of the bookmarks in my report

Hi @Jlucci,

As Sumanth_23 said, current power bi service allows us to add bookmark guid as query string filter conditions to apply specific bookmark effect. You can copy the group id, report id and bookmark id to quickly generate the link to navigation to specific report with bookmark effect.
Notice: power bi service seems records bookmarks with guid id instead of bookmark name, you need to manly record these guid ids.

Don't you know how to save this specific bookmark in Power BI Service so that it's available for all the users of the report?
