cross filter only one (not all) variable from a viz to another

Is there a way to set up cross filtering so that when I click on one field in a viz (say a table) then ONLY that variable is passed to other linked visualizations, instead of all the fields? In other words, I have a table that has a category, a date and a value, and when I click on "A" in Category, I want my line graph to then update to "A" but NOT to just that date on that row (I want to show a trend, not jsut a single point for, say 1/1/17, which is what I currently get now). 

 

Table:

Category       Date            Value

A                   1/1/17          4

A                   2/1/17          5

A                   3/1/17          7

 

Is this possible in Power BI? I'm thinking right now it's not.

Re: cross filter only one (not all) variable from a viz to another

Of course. But then it defeats the whole purpose of being able to use one viz to understand another. And more importantly, that doesn't work for drillthrough or for the new tooltip. It severly limits the use of tooltips and drillthroughs if there is no way to control what information is passed through...
