@Ilia In power bi desktop you can set value for slicer and then publish report this will ensure your report in power bi service or anyone you share with will always have a value you selected for the slicer.

Re: Always one value selected in Slicer

Hi Ilia,

Another option is after you create the slicer go to Format > Selection controls.  Set  Single Select to ON

This doesn't completely do what you want it to do, since users can CTRL>Select to select more than one checkbox.  But they won't be able to select more than one checkbox without using the CTRL button.

@Ilia,

 

When you download the custom visual ChicletSlicer 

Format > General > Multiple selection to OFF.

Here it isn't possible to select more then one value.

Re: Always one value selected in Slicer

Thanks everyone for answers, but I meant something different.

 

Step 1. There is only one value selected in Chiclet Slicer and everything looks good. Simple Card shows value for selected Chiclet.

Step 2. But in Chiclet Slicer I can canceled my choise, thus none of the options were selected. And in this situation Simple Card summarizes all values. I don't want this. I need Simple Card shows only one value.

none (all)_selection.png

 

So, how to avoid situation where User can deselect and none of the values ​​were selected?

Re: Always one value selected in Slicer

In ChicletSlicer there is option called 'Forced Selection. Turn it on, it will force user to select atleast one value on slicer.
