Hi MP_123,

Currently, in Power BI service, you can only pin entire report page which contains slicer to your dashboard by selecting Pin Live Page in the top navigation bar. This way, you can use the slicer to filter the chart within the tile. For more details, please check the following blog.

@MP_123,

 

Dashboards are supposed to provide a general overview of the content one would like to see. If you wanted to get into further detail you would click on a particular visual which then leads you to the origin of that visual.

 

Slicers are meant to be fully interactive in the report view, not the dashboard view.

Re: dashboard's slicer

Hi @wonga,

 

thanks for the response, however, often users are not interested in the details and would simply take a brief / fast look on certain attriutes. Then a slicer in the dashboard, working on the whole dashboard, would minimize the time significantly and allow the user to establish the needed view quite faster. Is there a current solution to that issue? I understand that users would spend more time on the source/ report view, but sometimes you only need a figure or very concrete view.

 

Thanks, Atanas

In Dashboards, the Q&A feature should be used, as it provides much better experience than slicers.

Re: dashboard's slicer

I disagree. 

 

I'd much rather see a filter with clickable option than a blank query box and try to guess at how I might be able to filter a report via writing text.  

 

The basic problem we have here is that we can add components, but not the slicers to filter them. Or we can add a live page view which is the same view as the base report. What we don't have is a way to add a subset of visualizations with filters.
