How can we improve Power BI?

Ability to select multiple items in a report for cross-highlighting

Ability to select multiple items in a chart say multiple bars, pie's etc and automatically have filters applied to all the existing reports. this helps to highlight anomalies and see all the surrounding reports changes as we do it and showcase risks/opportunities

    This feature appears to have been altered during the Oct. 2018 release and limits the user to cross-highlight only selected visuals. When a visual has been filtered "ad-hoc" by cross-highlighting and hidden under the selection pane, the filter is released. In my opinion, this is not acceptable and forces the user to "anchor" down each bookmark

    Is there a way to set the default to "ctrl+left click" for certain charts or tabs so that the user can dig into the visuals without having to hold the ctrl button? Not all of my users will be able to grasp the concept of holding ctrl+click so I'd like to set it as the default for them to just click. Thank you!

    In PowerBI embed, how to be notified that multiple values are selected in different visuals?
    dataSelected event only consider the last visual that has been clicked (and no dataUnSelected event exists)

    As already asked by someone else:

    How do you cross-highlight across multiple visuals on a Mac? Control click doesn't work (and previous workaround, Control double-click, doesnt work either.)

    Seemed to be working last week, and then for some reason this no longer works. Usually held down Ctrl +Click and selected multiple items. Just downloaded March Update to make use of the Tool-tip reporting feature and now seem to somehow lose the ability to select multiple items. Any help with this?

    It has been almost three months now. Do we have an expected date for such feature?

    there is a work around . You can use a normal filter in combination with the "Text filter " visual of Microsoft . They both are pointed to the same column . You filter with the Text filter and then you check the values you want in the normal filter. You can continue doing this until you have all the values you want to select (The normal Filter should have "multiselect" on.
    Hope it helps

    PS the okviz filter is gut idea but never was stable

    Being able to cross filter tables by holding selections in multiple tables as a ad-hoc drill down is supported by the competition such as Tableau and Qlik and feels like the best way to gather insights for a end user. It is just the most intuitive way to explore the data in a interactive report.

    I really hope this feature will be in the upcoming release of Power BI Report Server and its accompanying version of Power BI Desktop.

    hallelujah!!!
    this would reduce the need to have so many slicers and gain always much needed real estate

    Indeed this is a supreme important feature. We created a report that has three pie charts that do not interact with themselves. Each one has its own stacked bar chart and a card bonded by filter. We need to highlight each pie chart independently in order to simultaneous filter theirs stacked bar charts and cards. Howerver, only one pie chart can be highlighted at a time. It is frustating.

    Please can you confirm whether or not this idea will work on multiply charts, as already commented by Joel Faltermeier on the 20th of November.

    Hoped this would be implemented with December update... Now I really hope for January update since it's a necessity.
