Power BI Report Server should have an option to open the report in Full Screen mode just as it has an option in Power BI Service . When we open reports in Power BI Report Server , we can view page in 3 options 1:) Fit to Width , 2:) Fit to Page and 3:) Actual size . Issue with these three mode is the page and header consumes a lot of space and we need to scroll to view to full report .

Development is complete and is currently being tested & validated before release.

RE: Full Screen mode in Power BI Report Server

Could a full screen button be added to PowerBI Report Server? Possibly to the far right of the status bar where the page tabs appear.

RE: Full Screen mode in Power BI Report Server

It would be good to have full screen option, so that consumer can present in full screen. It good to have icon for that before setting icon in top right navigation same like Power BI Service. Right now I can do that using URL by appending ?rs:embed=true but my users and not technical enough to do that.

RE: Full Screen mode in Power BI Report Server

2021 and I as a developer still have to manually insert a button on my dashboards that add an hardcoded URL with "?rs:embed=true" at the end.
People with laptops have small screens and cannot read the dashboard if it is not on full screen...
This is not acceptable UX

This would be a great feature to avoid having to use manual workarounds that end users may or may not be able to perform.

For all those still waiting for a permanent fix for this issue, another workaround is to add a button to your PBIRS report, set the action to Web URL, and enter the URL of the published report appended with 'rs:embed=true'.

This will open a full-screen version of the report in a new tab/window while we patiently wait for an updated response from MS.

I am get tired to answer questions to management why such report cannot be displayed in full screen. This really should not be a big task for Microsoft to add three buttons with the commands needed.

Very important feature and a big constrain for the Report Server - Power Bi is for good visualization, while it is badly impacted by the size.

There is also a bug when using the other display options where the Filter Pane does not work properly when setting the view to Page Width. The Filter Pane when on open state hides behind the page layout area.

This idea has been under review for 2 years and nothing yet happens. How can a javascript code bug you so much team?
