Tnx for reply, but the problem is that there only appears "Sync field changes to other slicers" --> I need to TURN OFF the option
"Sync FILTER to other slicers" . 

"Sync FILTER to other slicers" used to be there but is no longer the case!!!

Hi @Coan7 ,


After checking,if you wanna "Sync FILTER to other slicers",you need to click on each slicer one by one and select the pages which the slicers will be synced.

Sync slicer is not the problem and it seems the "Sync filter on other slicers" is automatic ON when grouping and sync is on.
I want the slicer to sync but turn OFF "Sync filter on other slicers" so that I can have different filters in the slicers.

I have the exact same problem, did you find a solution to this? The proposed method in this thread did not work.

Hi @Coan7 ,


Based on my test,if you make the "sync" invisible,then the filter wont be synced to other slicers.
