Power BI desparately needs to support:

Synchronised Drill down across multiple charts with the same hierarchy on the same page (or across the report)

It is extremely annoying, if I have seveal graphs, to have to drill down or up on each of them individually. A feature that allows you to synchronise the drill down state selected charts would be make the user interface incredibly friendly!

can't believe that this is from 6 years ago and still not solved.

This would be really helpful, super frustrating that such a simple feature is not already available.

I am exploring Power BI and is surprising and disappointing to see that something as basic as this functionality is not implemented...

I am very disappointed that this topic needs votes and is still ignored by the microsoft team since 2018. Many other tools can do that! For me it's like developing a calculator and not integrating multiplying/dividing and ignoring the demand from the customers.

Shocked to find this is missing. I was under the impression it was a standard feature.

Agreed - my team is also struggling with how to work around this lack of functionality. Native support for syncing drill down states across visuals would be a welcome feature for our developers and report consumers.

Not sure how this has not been implemented yet, its a Key function on several Time Series based dashboards and the Workarrounds used within community often increase the complexity of our measures.

Needs Votes!? don't be so ridiculous! This is obviously missing functionality and a basic requirement, I'm sure its just an oversight but it should have been included from the very first build.

This would be amazing... Especially for process engineers

RE: Synchronised Drill Down across multiple charts with same hierarchy!

This seems like it would fit perfectly into the "Edit Interactions" part of the visuals.


I have a date hierarchy across the X axis in several visuals, but I can't recommend my users to drill down, because the other visuals, using the exact same hierarchy, all become useless.
