Default filter when no filter selected

Hi all,

 

I have a slicer of list of regions, and some table and graphs showing the indicators for each selected region.

For example, one card showing some country background text, and another visual showing the population.

 

The regions are Asia, Africa, Europe, etc.

 

The data behind is quite simple, with Region, Indicator, and Value as columns. Region is a list of regions, indicator is a list of indicators, and value is respective value, e.g. Europe, total population, xbillion.

 

When a region is selected in the slicer dropdown, the visuals show the data for that region. But when nothing is selected in the filter or selection is cleared, how can I make other graphs display "Europe" data by default?

 

I would prefer if there is a measure I can put as a filter at the page or visual level, otherwise, a measure conditionally filtering the value? 

Note that some values are strings.

Hi @zoffice 

I think your data model is as below.

If you want to calculate number you can use measure like Fowmy 's reply.

If you want to retrieve string values you can try my measure.

 

String = 
IF( 
    ISFILTERED('Table'[Region]),  
    MAX('Table'[Value-string]),
    CALCULATE(
         MAX('Table'[Value-string]),
        'Table'[Region] = "Europe"
    )
)

Result is as below.

By default:

Select Asia:

Please check the below formula and adjust it as per your model.
When no region is selected, it shows the Europe total and

Your  Measure = 

IF( 
    ISFILTERED(Table6[Region]),  
    SUM(Table6[ Value-numerical]),
    CALCULATE(
        SUM(Table6[ Value-numerical]),
        Table6[Region] = "Europe"
    )
)

Not quite sure what you means by "retrieve string values". I assume you have a dimension table with a Region Column. 

Please share some sample data based on your model and provide a clear explanation.

I have added some additional columns with text values such as "High-Income", that may not work with SUM i imagine.

 

My data model structure is basically the following:

Region, Indicator, Value-numerical, value-string

Europe, Population, 1234656, ,

Europe, Income-level, , High-income

Asia, Population, 234567, ,

Asia, Income-Level, , High-income

Try the following measure:

Your Measure = 

IF( 
    ISFILTERED(Table[Region]),  
    SUM(FactTable[Amount]),
    CALCULATE(
        SUM(FactTable[Amount]),
        Table[Region] = "Europe"
    )
)
