Linking a Tile to another Tile?

I'm trying to mimic "drill-down" behavior for a visualization that doesn't have drill down functionality (area chart) and noticed something interesting on my Power BI dashboard.....

 

Each time you enlarge a visual (bring it "InFocus") the URL changes slightly..... which got me thinking would it be possible to point a Tile to another Tile because they all have unique URLs that look like this when enlarged:

"tiles/7b29374f-e88f-4e24-8986-8b6b62f42303/infocus"

 

So I attempted to point my first tile to my second tile which then points back to the original tile, but no dice.... has anyone found a clever workaround to this problem/is it possible?

@MarkDGaal What I've done to link tiles between two dashboards is to first edit a tile and setting a custom link to another tile.

Hi @ankitpatira , I've tried that and even with "open link in same tab" there doesn't appear to be a way to make the visual link "infocus" which makes the transition kinda akward. I was hoping that there was some way that made it appear as if you were just cyling through tiles rather seemlessly. I'm kinda amiss as to why the specific URL for a tile on the same dashboard can't accomplish this... 

 

If there isn't another way I'll mark your solution as solved given that it can be handy if you wanted to have a summary visualization and then have more similar items diplaying details about that visualization (that dont make sense to place into a "legend" field; e.g. Scales are too dissimillar) in another linked dashboard.
