Slicer Select ALL when search is used.

Hello all,


Not sure if this is a bug or a limitation. I have a slicer that filters through a text field that contains tags. 


I want to simulate the "filter" function of pivot tables/excel where typing something, filters the selection baed on what you typed, then you can click "select all" to select all the matching rows for filtering the proper data set. So to speak of, a filter for the filters.


Unfortunately, when I start searching the values of the slicer, the "select all" tick box dissapears. Does anyone know of any way around this? This was really easy to implement with Tableau and Qlickview.

I have the same issue, and this is something that would help me a lot when presenting reports.


If this is not something possible, has anyone else find a workaround yet?

I've tried using two slicers with the same category to filter each other, but it doesn't really work the same way I need. Probably won't work for the original person who wrote this question either.


Please let me know if anyone has an idea of a nice workaround.

Thank you!
