And in the meantime there is a great blog by Reza Rad here that gives you the alternative means to get filtered slicers. It's just a much longer road than click format, set filter
This is "kind of" related to these Slicer Ideas too
In Oct 2016 we got the Date Slider in a Slicer containing a Date
In PowerView in Excel that Slider exists even for Numbers and numeric Measures
That Slider will in effect act as a Filter - between, less than, more than - for Numbers/Amounts (not just dates)
Thanks for the additional info @Sean. My use case that I have, and was thinking of, was just removing certian values from the dropdown. We used to be able to do this by starting as a table visual, adding filters, then changing it to a slicer. It was a hack, but it worked for one-off, and not relevant values for a particular slicer.
Yes I remeber we used that hack for the "non-existent" Blank in a Slicer
I agree we shouldn't have to go thru that many steps to filter certain values.
The Slider as we've seen in a Date Slicer works great - it would be the same with numbers/amounts!
However I understand if the values are not numeric or dates
you have no use for this Slider option and I agree they should let us use the Visual Level Filters.
I really hope they implement both!
Plus ALL other Ideas that have thousands of votes and we've waited patiently for...
Bumping this thread with support for the need to apply visual-level filters to slicers. The lack of this feature costs our office extra time each day we have to create an overly complicated work-around to achieve this fairly simple objective.
This is a pretty big must-have for our organization. Have several visuals where we only want to expose a small portion of the values to a given audience, the inability to simply add a visual-level filter to the Slicer visual is severely decreasing our efficiency when creating these reports. This seems like it should be a simple option, but instead our report engineers are stuck resorting to work-arounds that rarely justify their effort required.
Please support this feature, cannot overstate how much time this simple fix would save our office.
