If this looks like something you can manage:


What I think you can do as a work around is to an extent is:

  1. Create a slicer with the categories. Then use the Filters Pane to reduce the number of items there.


  2. Copy and paste the slicer the number of columns you'll like to show. And apply the relevant filters in each one. Also, Edit the interaction in each of the slicers to disable it from interacting with the others.


  3. Insert a shape around all the slicers at once.

  4. Make sure the Shape fill is turned off.


  5. Turn on the title on the shape and add.


  6. Then also, click to format the shape and send it to back.


If this workaround works for you, kindly mark as a solution to allow others who may have similar challenges find it easily.

You can achieve this in Power BI.


When you create the slicer, check the tiny little drop down towards the top right of your slicer that shows (change the type of slicer..), select Drop Down.

You can use the formatting options include outlines on the slicer like you have in the image. When you create one of those like you want, just copy and pase that multiple times to save time in creating and formatting the others. You will only change the field for the newly pasted ones accordingly.


If this solution works for you, please mark it as solution to allow other searching members easily find solutions.

I have already created the slicer, but now want to create the rejection reason box.
