dashboard - how to pin slicers only.

was to be able to pin induavidual visuals as tiles in my dashboard but the thing is that i have slicers as well that are connected to these graphs and tables how will i be able to do it? i wanted to able to use the focus mode which i cant right now for some reason and i think its because my report has too much stuff?

Re: dashboard - how to pin slicers only.

Pinning slicers isn't all to useful since pinned visuals don't ineract with anything on the dashboard view. Clicking on a pinned visual just brings you to the visual's origin report page.

 

You can pin a whole report page as a live page, so that any changes you make in that report page will be reflected in the live page you pinned to your dashboard.

ya thats how i have it currently. pinned as my whole page. but i want users to be able to see information they want based on the information they want to select. but i liked how the tiles are but i am guessing it wont work like that?

Re: dashboard - how to pin slicers only.

A dashboard can contain charts from multiple reports. That’s why a sliver doesn't make sense on a dashboard, because the slicer can't filter all charts/datasets.

Your user must click on the charts to drill down into the report and there they can filter the data with the slicers. E.g. you can tell this your users by a textbox with an explanation.

Hi rjunai200,

Do you want to get global filter in dashboard? If that is the case, Power Bi team is working through the design for this feature, you can vote this issue and add your comment in the following idea.

In Dashboards, the Q&A feature should be used, as it provides much better experience than slicers.

Um, it's incredibly useful.  

 

1. Multiple Visuals or KPIs are modified to the same context (i.e. set of slicer values) for comparison. 

 

2. When the executive wants to get further detail then they click on the visual to jump to the detail page. 

 

This could be avoided with the live page if there were an ability to link to other reports.

 

this is the default use for dashboards.  You can do it in Tableau, you used to be able to do it in PerformancePoint.

Re: dashboard - how to pin slicers only.

I've struggled with this in the past as well.  I created a simplified report page that emulated the look I wanted for my dashboard, and then pinned this page live to the dashboard with no other dynamic tiles added.  My slicers now work as expected, but users need to navigate to various pages in my report after "clicking through" the dashboard.  I think I can improve this now that Bookmarks are supported, simplifying intra-report navigation.
