Save Filter Selections

Has anyone ever engineered a way to save filter selections on a report? We have a need for non-authoring Power BI users to be able to: 

1) Make a selection within a slicer

2) Save their selection

3) Have the file saved somewhere (either a local file or database)

4) Reopen their report and pick back up where they left off.


Ideally, this would be done in an out-of-the-box Power BI visual. However, we understand that maybe it would have to be a custom visual.

Any tips/info would be great!

You can use the following example from ChicletSlicer source code:

persistProperties method allows to save any json config in visual settings.
