Power BI features for searching and filtering

Dear,

 

Could you please help me on the below queries.

 

I am doing a comparative study of the power BI and Qlikview

 

 

  • WHether Power BI has feature to search in all sheet (search object in QLikview), it searches all the fields in the data set
  • is there any way to get the filters which are already selected, it is there in Qlik as "Current Selection"
  • is there any way to slice (filter ) by clicking two visuals, i mean cross filtering between visuals.

    AFAIK, there's no such feature. I'm curious what is the scenario for such feature request, as based on my understanding, Power BI is for data presentation and I'm not searching something in the dataset. 

  • is there any way to get the filters which are already selected, it is there in Qlik as "Current Selection"
    You could reference the DAX functions like HASONEVALUEISFILTEREDVALUES etc

  • is there any way to slice (filter ) by clicking two visuals, i mean cross filtering between visuals.
    You can do cross filtering by clicking two slicer visuals. Also check Visualization interactions in a Power BI report

This will be handy as we cannot have as many slicers what end users want. However if user wants to see the data based on amy data which is not available as slicers, this will be very useful.

 

Slicers are fine we can do. However if we want to cross filter using different visuals, it is not possible.. It is a nice to have feature

 

I am aware of edit interaction features, but that is to decide whether the visual should be filtered or not  based on the other visual interaction.
