        Dashboard filters would be valuable for those cases where you have multiple end users of various reports best consumed in the context of dashboards. Group 1 could be consuming report A and C while Group 2 could be consuming A and B. This allows me to publish to multiple work-spaces and not have to create aggregate reports separately for each group to consume independently.

        There is not enough room on a report page for several needed slicers AND graphs big enough to actually read. Either enable a single report page canvas to lengthen and scroll, or address this request which was "planned" years ago.

        If you don't want to allow the dashboard tiles to interact, it might be nice to add more real estate down the page. Otherwise, if you have slicers or filters, one must repeat on mutiple tabs.

        Power BI's reputation is suffering without this. Dashboards promise much, Service defaults to Dashboards after all, but deliver mostly pointless aggregated data without slicers/filters. MS - sometimes the Next Big Thing is not what users need. Address some fundamental issues first with your product first. This should not be a vanity project for developers. If there are technical reasons why dashboard slicers/filters are not possible, just own up and say it.

        Filters are available on report level but this feature is required on the dashboard. Otherwise it's back to the over use of slicers. Very disappointing that this wasn't part of the original feature.

        Need this ASAP. Whole functionality of the dashboard starts and end with this feature for my use.

        Any update on global filter for various reports pinned to a dashboard?
