Re: Search box missing from Slicer in Power BI Desktop

Finally found it. Microsoft should make it easier for people to know how to search text in slicers.

Re: Search box missing from Slicer in Power BI Desktop

Has anyone figured out a way to do a search with numerical values?

Re: Search box missing from Slicer in Power BI Desktop

I have a work around.  I went into the query, and duplicated the numerical column, and then transformed that duplicate column to type text.  Then use that duplicate column as the field in the slicer, and as prior posters mentioned, click the 3 ...'s on the slicer (top or bottom corner) and enable search.

 

It seems silly that we can't search non-text fields though... <cough cough PBI dev team...>

That is one one the most hidden features in this program. Along side the conditional formatting that only appears when you hover over it
