Layouts – Microsoft – Sept 2018

An impressive layout was produced by the Microsoft team in September of 2018.  While the layout was awesome, it was merely only one page.  Not quite up to the PowerBI.Tips standards.  We really love this layout, but it just needed some love to finish it up for the community.  We hope you enjoy this new layout in the style of the Power BI Blog Sept 2018 release.

    any way to add more slicers into the collapsible pane on the right?
    thank you for the wonderful layout

    • Seth Bauer

      limys – you have the ability to add as many slicers into that field as you would like. The slicer would need to be added to the page and you would need to hide/show it based on which bookmark is used for the filter page. You can manipulate this by opening and using the selection pane and the bookmarks pane in Power BI Desktop

    when I add a slicer to the right, when closing the panel the data comes back as it was before selecting some filter, as I do to continue filtering after closing the panel?

    Thank you!

      You will need to adjust the filter panel bookmarks. There will be one bookmark to show the filters, and another one to close them out (hide them). Add your new bookmark, Turn on all the elements using the selection pane, then update the bookmark. Then hide all the items of the filter selection and update the Hide Filters bookmark. This will allow you to control the new slicer you added.

    Looks great but I cannot seem to load my own data to the pbit file

    • Mike Carlo

      The PBIT file is not intended to be used to load data. It is only a template. When you open the PBIT file it will automatically create a PBIX file for you. When you do this you can add data two ways.

      1. By modeling the data directly in this file, create tables, and relationships for what you need in the created PBIX file.
      2. Load a data model to, Then connect to the data via a live connection. This is found under Get Data -> Power BI Datasets This will load a model that has already been published to

      Hope that helps.

    Hi This looks great! Can you please share me more insights on how to create those P1 through P9 tabs? I saw this kind of navigation a lot of times but have no clue how it works. Thank you!

      We recently did a video with Microsoft on this topic, Check out the following video where we walk through how to build these:

    I understand how to add a new filter, but when I add the bookmark “Page 1 – Slicers Off” the graphics are on that bookmark, and when I clicks in the panel on a filter, changes, but when I click on “Page 1 – Off” the graphs go back to what I was when I added the bookmark, I wanted to know how to do when I hit the button for the marker “Page 1 – Slicers Off”, it keeps filtering, without the graphics coming back as they were before.
