Create different slicers
Allow slicers to be created as drop downs, calendars, on/off switches etc. Let slicers contain multiple fields. Also allow user to specify that slicer can only have one value selected and set a default
We just shipped a preview of the relative date slicer in the latest release of Power BI Desktop. Learn more about the latest release here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-feature-summary/

I've used up 30% of my page just to slice 3 related entities, surely there must be a better and smarter way of doing so, like a cascading dropdown / horizontal selection option.
This is such a great idea, surprised it hasn't received a response.
Voted for an advanced search option in slider. So you can also search on this : >10<20
It's a great Tableau feature.
We have a custom visual that allows much more capabilities than the built-in slicer. It provides many formatting properties that make it a charm to use.
You can find it here:
Let us know if this is along the lines of what you need or how we can enhance it.
We have thousands of customers and items and we just can't scroll down the filter to pick the customer. We need to be able to search to pick the data we are looking for and having only 2 filters is just not enough.

Single or multiple option is must and if possible with a option of default value of slicer should be there.
This is critical to improving the mobile experience
This is critical to maximize space!

It's very simple idea, to add combo box as slicer to select from drop list (with search option) specific item between large numbers of items to see the filter result

I agree on the search and voted on that option in another suggestion.
Chiclet slicer is very nice but it needs improvements for horizontal layout
It should also be possible to change the color of the selected items which is now always dark grey (which is beautiful) but it's weird that it's the only color we can't change
A search filter would be extremely handy!
For the current slicer it should also be possible to divide the items on different rows (with the horizontal option which is beautiful)
It's fair to say that a lot of new formatting options have been implemented via the chiclet, vertical and regular slicer.
search would be great
The Chiclet Slicer custom visualization is a good start here, but more standard options would be nice.
A minimum of font size setting needed for the Title. While there is a property for data but there is not font size property for the Title.
Morten Jørgensen commented
not having formatting options like dropdown, single vs. multiple selection etc. is one of the reason why Tableau is still way superior
Slicer Search would be a huge help!
At a minimum, let us choose between vertical and horizontal layouts.
I Need sample ou tutorial how made slicer filtering topN values by a selected attribute. Eg: I have a table with over 500k records of internet users access and need display top 10 by business unit, user, site category, year/month. Any idea ?
