Set fIlters prior to processing direct query

Hello - I'm familair with other BI tools and am looking for a similar functionality.  I have powerBI setup as a direct query.  I'm looking for a way for the users to select all of their filter criteria and then hit a button to launch the query, rather than the query kicking off with no filter criteria upon open.  Any suggestions?

hi, @dsewall 

If you want to filter data sources, you need to use Parameters in Power BI.
