Current Selection / Slider object

Is it possible to see somewhere what current selections are active or which sliders are active?

Yes this possible in , The filter selection for a particular tile can be found in our newly introduced in-focus (full screen) mode.

If you like to have the filter condition visible on the dashboard, you can also include that as part of your customized tile title (https://support.powerbi.com/knowledgebase/articles/424878-edit-a-tile-resize-move-rename-pin-delete).

I'm more looking for a tile swich will show me all the currenct active on the dashboard. And also where it's possible the deselect the sliders. 

@amien I'm not aware of any "overview" of slicer options selected. But you can just quickly clear all possible slicer selections by clicking on the eraser icon in the upper right of the slicer if there is any question. Otherwise, if this relates more to how to identify pre-selected values to the end user, you could always just specify that in a text box on the report page..

I don't really know the issue your trying to solve here, so, just throwing some ideas out.

something like this. one central place to see what sliders are active within the sheet. If you take conclusions from a chart or want to communicate a chart, it good to have all the active slider very clear. To prevent making the wrong conculusions because the end-user was not aware of a certain slider being active.

@amien Hi Amien, very good question and - to be honest - also something that often comes up in comparison to the existing Qlik applications.

Right now you have multiple ways of selecting elements in Power BI:

a) Filter pane (either report- or page-level)

b) Slicers (chiclet,regular, ...)

c) Highlighter-stuff in visuals (basically same logic like in slicers)

 

Thus it makes it hard to aggregate all the current selections to a single overview like in Qlik and is thus not possible. There are also some feature requests which go in the same direction:

https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi/suggestions/10559187-remove-all-filters-with-one-cl...

https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi/suggestions/9376467-pin-slicers-to-the-dashboard

https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi/suggestions/9861216-allows-slicers-to-apply-to-all-...

 

These feature are kind of the precondition to show the always active filters on a glance. This "show the breadcrump" approach is also something which had been discussed at the very early stage of dashboards, but has - in my eyes - not resolved properly so far.

 

Sorry to not have a good answer right now, but I think we will see this feature discussion/request come up more often in the future, so keep on voting. 🙂
