Setting the Default Value of a Slicer based on the User's name/login

I have to 25 users that will review the dashboard, and I want each of them to be defaulted to his group/Office (Without secruity resrictions). I was wondering if there is a way to do that?

Perhaps. You might be able to do something with a table of user names, SELECTEDVALUE and USERPRINCIPLE name. Kind of like a What If parameter.

Hi @ahassan44 

 

We have the same requirement and all solutions appear to be kludgy workarounds.

How did you eventially solve this?

I just asked the end users to use the slicer every time they log in as it is only one search slicer. Meanwhile, I changed the setting to make sure the dashboard doesn't save on the end-user selection.

 

The other solution would be if you create a RLS tables, and limit the end user view based on their name or GEO
