    Hi Guys,

    Wish everyone doing well!

    Is there a way to share a PBI report without showing the pages names. I would like to add buttons to my reports to direct users towards charts and data. I don't want them fly over the pages and get lost.

    Please help.

    Hi @S B,

    In the desktop file, you can right click on the pages and hide them. This way no one will be able to see them on the service or on Publish to Web.

    If you are sharing the desktop file with someone, they will be able to see the hidden pages.

    Then you can create bookmarks to navigate to the pages. Add buttons to the page and assign a bookmark to each button.

    Creating bookmarks is a tedious job, if you have a lot of pages that you want to hide and you will have to update bookmarks, when you make changes to the report.

    So make your decision wisely.​

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you,
