toggle slicer clears all filter

Hi All,

 

I have created a simple bar chart/map which shows water consumption. I have created a card which shows overall consumption.

If I select a city on a map values do change correctly on a card. The moment I click on toggle between (Gals) and (Lit) , the city filter actiavted through map gets cleared out. and card shows overall data again.Toggle Snapshot.png

I need to achieve switch between units without clearing all filters. In this version I have included toggle unit data in same table. I also tried it with separate table and using switch/if else statement, the result is same.

 

This is simple data the actual data has multiple measures not all of them require toggle.

Kindly let me know yout insights on this.

You can't control this (currently) when cross filtering between visuals. Slicers will hold their selection, but other visuals will not. So it you add a slicer for city, it will work. But of course the experience is not as engaging.

Toggle is a really neat feature however I think the functionality of not being able to carry over the slicer selection is really limiting it.

thanks Matt I did observe the same, as long as I put slicer it works. Thanks for your confirmation. I do have smart filter, it works only when I manually select value from filter but in observation mode.

 

so there is no other workaround for this?

Not at this time. But you could search Ideas.powerbi.com and search for a suggested improvement (or create a new one).
