How can we improve Power BI?

Slicer Hierarchy

Dragging a hierarchy into a report and change it to slicer... can we get a slicer with hierarchy (collapsible/expandable)?

    looking at an inventory folder hierarchy of 9 deep. There needs to be a better way to handle this.

    Definitely need this functionality. There is a marketplace Hierarchy slicer that is not available to synch slicers

    This idea has multiple great points. The most obvious is that we can reduce the number of slicers on a report. But it hopefully would also allow us to easily make data selections that are otherwise tricky (for instance, select a group of items that mixes values at different levels).

    This will free up a ton of space on my dashboard. I can combine 5 slicers into one. Please!!!

    With the new ability to "sync slicers" this is needed more than ever.

    The custom Hierarchy Slicer is such a staple for users that I'm shocked MS hasn't updated their own by now.

    Can someone please bring this one back up from the dead?! Under review Dec. 2014. 3 years later?

    As others noted, Custom Hierarchy slicer has many issues and limitations.

    The custom visual hierarchy slicer is no longer working, so we really need the feature asap

    "Under Review" since 2014? This is a very important piece of basic functionality, please keep considering. Most of it is already available with the custom hierarchy slicer - we pretty much need the same just with a collapsible option so it doesn't take up too much space on the report.

    We have multi level product hierarchy (Total>Category> Sub Category 1> Sub Category 2> Merchandise Area > Planning Group > Sub Planning Group > SKU). Basically, we need 6 or 7 slicers just for our Products, meaning we seriously lack space for much else on the screen. We really need this!

    I agree that a hierarchy slicer makes a lot of sense for basic functionality.

    Custom visual seems to become broken as of late - scroll bar not working, error when opening in PBI Desktop - so need for this improvement has increased

  • Gérald commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I suggest two improvements :
    1) combinate "text" and "numerical" values, i mean : first level hierarchy = check boxes for texte values as name for a range of nurmeric values, second level = numeric value, with the ability to use "between" like in regular nurmerical slicer
    2) ability to use the scroll list like in a regular slicer.

    I use today the custom visual: Hierarchy slicer. It has issues. And doesn't support lots of members, sorting etc.
    Please help us here this means a lot to my clients.

    This would be incredibly helpful. I find myself going to the custom visuals to get this - but they don't work as well, they don't look/feel the same as built-in slicer options, and they aren't as reliable.
