Hi @shashank

 

Just dragging the field to the filter only then allows you to make a selection in the filter.

 

Selections you make in the slicer on the canvas will still only affect visuals on the page.  

 

It would be great if a visual could be used as a global filter and this has been a much requested feature.  Feel free to vote for it here which will email you updates on progress.

Hi @shashank

 

Currently you can only filter other visuals in the same report page by selecting and item on a bar-chart.   If you'd like the selection to be a global filter for all report pages, you'll need to use the filter menu on the right.
