Slicers that Drill-Down and/or Filter
Two related ideas:
A drill-down slicer where the options are fields within a hierarchy rather than the values within one field. For example, having a Geography drill-down slicer with options for the following fields: "Country, State/Province, County, City". When clicking on one of these slicer options, the linked visualizations should drill up or down to that level. This should be the default function when building a slicer from a hierarchy--currently, creating a slicer from a hierarchy uses the values from one field within that hierarchy (which is the same as building a slicer directly from that field).
A drill-down/filter combo slicer. For example, I have a bar-chart visualization by country with bars for "USA, Canada, Mexico" and can drill down to State/Province level "Michigan, Illinois, Ontario, Quebec, Yucatan, Baja...". I also have a slicer for country, with values "USA, Canada, Mexico", but when I click on the slicer option "USA", my bar-chart filters to show one bar for "USA" when I want it to drill-down to the states within the USA (filter and drill-down in the same step). If I then select "Mexico", the bar-chart should filter to Mexico and stay at the same drill-down level. If I deselect the slicer option, the bar-chart should drill-up and the filter should turn off.
Point 2 will be so great! Hope we get it!
yes this would be so so helpful!
Me too for point 2.
