Turn Off All Visual Interactions

  • 1.  Turn Off All Visual Interactions

    Posted Sep 15, 2020 01:29 PM
    Hi All,

    I've been trying to figure out a simple way to turn off all interactions between visuals in my reports. I found out where you can do it in Power BI but it is always grayed out. I'm trying to avoid doing this visual by visual because there are so many. Why is it not giving me the option to change everything?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Katrina,

    The function you are looking for is the "Edit interactions" button at the top left of the ribbon in your capture.

    Hi Vincent,

    That only allows me to change one visual at a time rather than everything. I'm trying to turn off all of the visual interactions at once if possible.

    Katrina,

    As far as I know, there is no such options yet. You can vote on this idea : https://ideas.powerbi.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=2ede8431-93af-4783-9b8b-61087b6e45fe

    Thank you Vincent!

    I had a feeling that might be the case.

    Hi, everyone is right of course, but there is a trick you can apply here.  If you place a 100% transparent shape over the area of the canvas that you don't want people to click on, and set that as the top layer, then you will remove any interactivity.  I ran a Lunch and Learn session on this, and you can see the results from 28 minutes on in this video.
