The new feature "Visual Interactions" is great. However, it would be even greater to be able to do multiple cross-filters in multiple charts to further narrow down the filtering. Today a new click in another chart resets the current cross-filter. When analyzing data this type of functionality would help a lot - currently you need to manually set a filter that corresponds to the cross-filter you just made to further narrow down the analysis.
Visual interaction require lots of improvements, it is confusing a lot. The cross filtered graphs should show only relevant data based on the first click. The highlight and dehighlight is not useful when there are many items in X axis / Y axis.

It's a MUST!

This could be a game changer. It's one of the features that puts Power BI behind Tableau.
We would like to be able to convert Tableau dashboards into Power BI but this feature missing is critical.

This would be so cool, but there should be some easy way to see which filters are applied to the visualizations and edit them.
Maybe a filtervisual that lists all filters?
I am really missing this feature. I am endorsing Chris Hutchins comment "Use chart as slicer" would resolve this. Requirement is for the selection in chart A to globally filter the rest of the report, and not be reset to all when a selection in chart B is made."
I really missed this feature on some projects.

Needed. "Use chart as slicer" would resolve this. Requirement is for the selection in chart A to globally filter the rest of the report, and not be reset to all when a selection in chart B is made.
We desperately need the ability to apply concurrent filters from multiple charts. Qlik does this, why can’t Power BI. This topic is also related to global filtering.
There are other registered ideas that are almost the same as this one. This uncontrolled idea submitting option is not efficient. I think this is a really important feature but because of the inefficient registration does not get the votes it deserves (now its fragmented).
In my opinion, it is effectively a mandatory figure to do Data Visualization.
I understand this to be that multiple charts can act as filters within the report/dashboard. This is different than allowing the selection of multiple items within a single chart. I believe this is quite important. For instance, a trended chart + a pie chart for customer groupings can both filter a third object.
Very important asset!! (Like the functionality of Qlik...)
That would be necessary for serious Analysis of causes. The easiest way to implement this could be, to make it able to define Slicers as "global". They should then appear in every page of the Report and stay connected. So users can set a slicer in one page and have it set in the next page.
There's another submission already marked for review covering this: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi/suggestions/6919488-ability-to-select-multiple-items-in-a-report-in-a Let's concentrate our votes in just the one.
