With spotlight, you can draw attention to a specific visual on a report page. If the spotlight mode is selected when you add a bookmark, that mode is retained in the bookmark.

Add a spotlight

  1. Open a report in the Power BI service.

  2. Decide which visual you'd like to highlight on the report page. Select the More actions (...) dropdown.

    Compare spotlight to focus mode

  3. Choose the option for Spotlight. The selected visual is highlighted, which causes all other visuals on the page to fade to near transparency.

    Report with spotlight mode on.
