Any applied filter should be highlighted to show which filter is applied to avoid confusion & time to search which filter we have applied in order to redo the action. It is particularly useful when we are dealing with lot of filters for slicing & dicing the data
Voted. Meanwhile, I developped my own solution where a light turns on when a filter is applied. Then a tooltip displays the details of applied filters.
Please have a look at this one minute video and share your comments there :
Dealing with this issue this week. I have 3 similarly named Page level filters that I need to put on multiple pages in a report. Seeing the data source would be a simple and easy time save just like how visuals highlight their data source.

Huge need for this! As PowerBI get used more, it is a constant pain point. One person will be looking at a report and the numbers don't match what someone else is seeing and significant time is wasted on troubleshooting only to find out that one person several days ago set a filter on the report page and forgot to remove it.

Many ideas here are related to this one. Filter visibility should be improved.

I'd like that but as an option..
Any applied filter _could_ be highlighted to show ...
