Hyperlink from Graph Data Point

Hi,

 

I know I can build a dynamic hyperlink for each row in a table.

Can I do the same for a data point in a graph (e.g. a link for each bar in a bar chart)?

 

Thanks,

 

Barak

Hi @barakb321 ,

 

To my knowledge, we are currently unable to implement your requirements in Power BI.

Currently Power BI only supports hyperlinks in tables and matrices, you can also use hyperlinks in text boxes.

Note that you cannot use a custom URL as a hyperlink in a table or matrix. You can use a link icon. If you need custom text for your hyperlinks and your list of URLs is short, consider using a text box instead.

 

You can see it in:

Add hyperlinks (URLs) to a table or matrix 

Add a hyperlink to a text box in a report 

As a workaround, you can try inserting a hyperlink in the text box, resizing it to the right size and applying it to the visual of the report.

 

Hope it helps,

Hi @barakb321 ,

Currently there is no way to navigate to a link from graph data points.

The only work-around would be applicable in case you have a static graph wherein you can overlap the bars with hyperlinked text-boxes having no background color.
