    Hey all – we’re looking into how best to tackle this and other filter/slicer-related functionality.

    We’ve put together a short survey to better understand different use cases and what improvements would make the experience better.  If you have a few moments, the survey takes about 10 minutes to complete.  We appreciate your feedback!

        Enabling Power BI to save several filter states for scenario analysis would be helpful

        We need to send the reports by property to various teams and to the management. it would be great if we subscribe and send via email.

        I want to send mails to 10 partners by filter related each partners for weekly reports.
        and send mail to 100 division managers by filter related each division for monthly reports.

        Yes this is critical! But this is a BIG powerBI problem in general, viewing a report, what filters are selected? Looking at a PowerBI mobile dashboard, jee I wonder what filers are selected, looking at a PowerBI email report snapshot, hmmm I wonder what filers are selected, get emailed a PowerBI alert, hmm I wonder what filers are applied to this alert value. Is it just me or this not an issue through the entire PowerBi experience?????? Microsoft I love PowerBI but PLEASE resolve this asap. Without this the user has no context to the data he is analysing, is this not the most important thing in BI, the context of information ?????

        Be sure to allow for subscribing to the same report in multiple states (same report, multiple subscriptions, each with a different filter state).
