Global filter in dashboards
Allow me to pin a filter to the dashboard that can be associated with one or more pinned dashboard KPIs.
We don’t plan to bring filters to dashboards. We do plan on investing more in composite models to allow multiple sources to be brought into the same report for slicing and filtering.

Dashboards are expected to work in live with the reports but if sync slicers working well with the reports does not work for Dashboard then it makes the feature less attractive.
Adding filters to Dashboard is an essential feature.

I think it's basic requirement for Dashboard to set filter values for all reports which can be accessed through it. So please consider adding global slicers/filters.

Being able to include filters and sliders is a basic dashboard need. Please add this requirement to your product improvement cycle.
To add my vote and comment, please consider adding slicers to dashboards. I setup all my report slicers to sync as needed but I can't believe this does not function in Dashboards. I finally switch all my users to dashboards and folks are frustrated they can no longer sync when viewing a dashboard with multiple tiles. This is really challenging and defeats the purpose of syncing slicers for data consumers. Please please please reconsider. This is an important function.
If slicers don't update all visuals and metrics in a dashboard, then the dashboard is worthless.
Extremely disappointing since a dashboard makes things much easier for customers.
Please fix this issue. Syncing slicers across multiple report pages is an essential feature that must flow through transparently to dashboards.
We really, really, really, should be able to sync slicers on one dashboard tile to another. What would be even more helpful, is that if you make a change to your slicer selection on the report view, when you come back to the dashboard the corresponding data viz there should be updated to reflect the new slicer selection.
If dashboard is just a static representation of our data viz, why don't we just show the static data viz in powerpoints /on PDFs? The Q&A function alone is not sufficient to justify the usefulness of the dashboard.
Slicers and filters need to be applied to dashboard tiles otherwise it defeats their purpose. I would have to create 272 separate dashboards for all of my schools. Please, please find a way to add this capacity to the dashboard element!!!

At the very least, the dashboard needs to refresh based on the filters applied in the report page that it came from.
What is the point of a static dashboard? Absolutely nothing, but a statement of historical fact, which can be accomplished by creating a PDF.
Dashboard won't be useful if filters are not available, tableau is much better in this. Filters make the dashboards interactive and dynamic. How can we miss this functionality
without global level filter dashboard is worthless
whats the point of having a dashboard then? these are the first things people see ? if you need to filter by reports first they become superfluous. You are effectively making dashboards slicer and variable independent, which makes then pretty much worthless or limits their usage substantially
Too bad ! Very important feature, dashboard are just useless without this possibilty !
wow...was going to use the dashboard feature for an upcoming project but if you cant even apply any global filters (date range being most important) we will have to look at alternatives
In a similar vein we have ‘Live’ pages on dashboards that have slicers to allow users to focus on their preferred Geographical Regions. These slicers do not persist between viewing of the dashboard which seems an oversight given that this feature was added to reports some months ago.
Are dashboard features are being overlooked? Seems odd given that they're the obvious starting point for users interaction in a PowerBI session!
Please reconsider this issue and making dashboard filters persistent.
Please reconsider adding this
PLEASE ADD THIS. my reports are meaningful without global toggles.
Please add this
"Please explain how Power BI could possibly be used for centralised reporting in this state. Am I meant to just create endless duplicate reports for each filter needed?"
My thought exactly...
I can't believe this product was recommended to me, it is completely impossible to make dynamic reports with data from multiple SSAS data sources... which was my only goal O_O
What a waste of time...
