Blog: Power BI — Edit Interactions — Episode 12

Welcome to Episode 12 of my Power BI Best Practices Series. In today’s episode, I will show you how and why you should edit your interactions in your visuals. Editing interactions allows for you to apply the filter directly on a visual. Also, you can change the way the filter interacts with different visuals on your page.

Here we go!

Edit Interactions

In the Edit interactions menu, you can specify, to which visuals this filter applies. You can turn off the interaction for some of your visuals on the dashboard. In this case, these visuals will not change when you update your filter.

Please note that you can not edit interactions if the report was shared with you. Also, by default, drilling one visualization has no impact on the other visualizations on the report page.


Check out our prior episodes to see where we are going and discover what BEST PRACTICES for Power BI is all about.

Let’s continue the discussion
