Report level slicer

Is it possible to use a slicer that will apply to all pages of a report?

Agreed, this works for the "Slicer" view, but not for other varieties of Slicer, e.g. Chiclet Slicer (1.6.0). 

 

We needed some method of displaying all selections on a single view, without resorting to a significantly reduced font size.  Someone on this group suggested the Chiclet slicer, but the Sync slicer option doesn't recognise it as a slicer 😞

This is not possible due to couple of reasons. One of them is Slicer is a page scoped. I had the same requirment. So as a workaround I used Dynamic Filtering feature. Not the exactly the same as traversing between pages, but much similar behaviour untill get a proper solution for this. For dynamic filtering refer the below Video

Hi @Saloni,

 

No. It is not possible to do that. A slicer selection only affects the visuals in current page not across all pages.

Slicer is page scope  object so you can't achieve that.

Hi PowerBI Team, 

What is the latest on this??? It is a critical missing component to some reports i am trying to build right now. 

Can we expect it on the february release?

I reckon it's pretty close....

No, you have to use a report level filter.
