Slicer - Remove "All" as an option in Dropdown Slicer

I am currently using a Slice in my dashboard.  Is there a way to force a user to select an item from the Dropdown?

 

The use case when a user selects an option in the dropdown, and then de-selects it, the control defaults to "All".  I was wondering if there is an option to remove this as an option?

 

Thanks in advance.

Thank you @KHorseman

 

You are correct.

 

In the meantime, I have found a solution when using a Chiclet Slicer.


So for those who need a quasi-selector behavior - this is one way to do it.

Re: Slicer - Remove "All" as an option in Dropdown Slicer

You have to remember that a slicer isn't a selector, it's a filter. If nothing is selected, then there is no filter in place, which means the selection is "All". Selecting an item in a slicer isn't the same as entering a selection where none previously was made. It's limiting the previous "all" selection to just that selected item.
