Specific interactions between visualizations

is there a way to specify interactions between visualizations? like graph B only filters based on the data in graph A, and graph C only filters based on graph B(but keeping the filter from graph A), etc.

 

i have a report that i'm building for processor productivity, where the main pie graph is total invoices processed by user. The second pie graph measures the type of action for each process. So when you click a user in the first graph the second is filtered by that user, which is perfect. However, i was hoping to get a third chart (just a list actually) where you could click on the action type to get a filtered list of the items processed with that action. It seems like when i click on the action type, it changes all data and forgets the selection from Graph 1. I'm trying to allow a user to select Processor A in graph 1 to get the breakdown of what they processed, then click Action 1 in graph 2 to get a detail list of the invoices on which Processor A used Action 1. seems like in the data chart, i can only get all items processed by Processor A or all items that had Action 1 performed on them.

Re: Specific interactions between visualizations

i actually found a way around this with a stacked bar chart, but i'm still curious about the topic.

Re: Specific interactions between visualizations

Yeah i saw those articles before posting, they don't really apply.

There is no hierarchy in my data, so the drill downs wouldn't work. I was really hoping there was a way to direct the dependency of each visualization. So if i click a data point in one, it changes the other two, but then i could click a data point in the next visualization, it wouldn't "reset" the focus of all the data displayed. 

 

I might be able to get the slicer option to do what i want, but it's not really playing to the ease of use in the clickability of this tool. Plus, i'd be worried users would get confused, especially if they are using other Power BI solutions that work differently.
