Re: Visual level filtering for slicers

It worked your idea in the older version of PowerBI desktop. This idea is not working in new version.

Re: Visual level filtering for slicers

This trick doesn't work now anymore. Switching back to the slicer removes the visual filter that was applied to the table.

 

Any new suggestions?

Same here. We need also any suggestion how to solve this issue. Creating a new table is not applicable for us.

 

Thx

Re: Visual level filtering for slicers

There is a cusom visualization called "Hierarchy Slicer" that has this functionality. You don't have to use the hierarchy aspect of the slicer if you don't need it, but the list filters down based on your other selections. This needs a permanent fix though, and I know there can be issues with custom visuals on mobile devices.

@kmccormick I tried to use a filter in the Hierarchy slicer, but for that's not possible. Did you really add a filter to that visual (the hierarchy slicer)?

@cousinlarry I haven't heard of any on the visual end. You would have to deal with it in your model layer.

Re: Visual level filtering for slicers

This workaround no longer seems to be working. No official method available yet either.

Re: Visual level filtering for slicers

@shds Correct, broken - no "fix" You would have to handle a "one-off" in your model if this was a unique slicer just for a page. You could do this using a calculated column to define your groups, or a seperate table. (just a couple examples, but both of them are a bit of excessive work for what should be a simple switch)
