As drillthrough function we use a filter and we give value for it from other report page. I click back-button and it will take me back to where I was before. In the background filter value stays unchanged. I use drillthrough function again. Filter value changes and I see visuals filtered with that value. I use back-button again. I navigate to that report page manually and to my surprice value selected in prev step is still selected. I know that I can open my filter selections and clear selected value but I'd like to do is to start exploring my data without any preselected drillthrough filters. Filters in filter pane are a bit confusing to end-users and some of them cannot even find them.

We needed this functionality like 2 years ago!

This issue needs to be addressed by Microsoft. The results from the drill through are misleading if filters from a prior drill through are not cleared.

Even i am facing same issue cache is not clearing. If you then navigate to the same report page manually the drill through filter is still applied and it gets a little fiddly and confusing. Having the back button clear the drill through filter would be perfect!

I was very surprised that Back doesn't automatically clear the drill through filters.
I can't think of any scenario where the current behavior of keeping the filters would be desirable.

yes, the drill thorough back button should release the filters. In cases where the detail tab is not hidden and user wants to access the whole detail data without any filters on, it's getting tough to handle... I vote this option.

RE: Back-button feature to clear selected drillthrough filter value

While hiding the drillthrough page might be helpful to some, I need to keep it visible for one of my clients because they jump back and forth between it and other pages. Being able to clear the filters without having to teach them how to use the Filters pane, either through implementing it with the Back button action or a separate function, would be most helpful.

With the January update allowing authors to hide drill-through pages (so they are no longer browsable tabs on your report) should address this issue.
