Power BI bookmarks add so much valuable functionality to the application. They allow so many capabilities that were missing prior. Some are true workarounds but some are on par with other BI tools. Take MicroStrategy and their use of panes – historically difficult to work with – with Bookmarks and the Selection Pane, it is very easy to duplicate this capability in Power BI. This allows you to change visuals dynamically – or make it look like you are dynamically changing the axis by using bookmarks, the selection pane, buttons/tabs, and either multiple visuals or drill down levels to change the axis.
I have curated a decent list of wonderful blog postings on use cases for bookmarks. Please visit them, thank them, and give these authors credit. I hope you find these as valuable as I have.
