Sync slicers with bookmarks

Purpose: Synce slicer across Bookmarks.  

 

Background: I would like my date slicer to sync across bookmarks. In the below example I selected Q3 as my time frame in the "Everyone" bookmark. However, when I go to the "Mountaineering" bookmark my time frame selection is removed. 

 

Can slicers sync across bookmarks and pages? Or only pages?

Re: Sync slicers with bookmarks

Slicers sync across pages, not bookmarks. That being said, it is possible that perhaps if you turn on selection controls that you may be able to achieve your desired result. My thinking is that perhaps you can save your bookmark without cross filters and then perhaps your synchronized slicers might work and not get their values removed by the bookmark.

Re: Sync slicers with bookmarks

It Worked! 

 

I unselected Data from each of my bookmarks. Then made sure that my filter was synced to the page with my book marks applied. In the below example my page is called "Product Line Variation". 

 

Now when I select a quarter it is carried across my bookmarks!

My Bookmarks have charts and matrices on them.   When I de-select data for any bookmark, my matrices and charts lose their filters?  The Filter/Slicer does sync but visuals lose their original settings? Any ideas?

OK, here's a thought, what if in the selection for your bookmark, you choose "Selected Visuals" instead of "All Visuals" and don't select your slicers?

Same result.  Sent you a private message for possible webex/screenshare to resolve.

Re: Sync slicers with bookmarks

Thank you for reaching out.  No I do not have a solution.  The main issue is that Bookmarks are still in preview mode while Synch Slicers is in Production.   One of my colleagues just attended the annual Microsoft PowerBI Summit in Seattle where they spent a good bit of tie on Bookmarks.  It was mentioned that Bookmarks moving to Production would be in the September or October release.  I am hoping this is true and happens!
