Allows Slicers to apply to all Pages of a Report
As has been partly implemented with Filters, it would be very useful to have slicers that could apply to all pages of a report. This would allow users to interact more easily.
The most exciting news so far this year! In the February release of Power BI Desktop we’ve shipped the ability to synchronize slicers on different pages in your report! You can read more about how the feature works here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-february-2018-feature-summary/#syncSlicers
Thanks again for everyone’s feedback and votes on this feature. We do listen to you so keep voting and let us know what other things you need us to prioritize.

Important feature that exists in other Dashboard tools.

Need this Feature for our project. Please implement soon, Thanks. !
Keep getting comparisons to Tableau that can do this.
...as a visualization
Slicers - based on and impact on 'Report level filter'
Be able to create a 'filtering page' where you can add for example slicers for filtering. On other pages you get the possibility to set page filtering to a certain page so that all applied selections are used on the new page. Through this way you can apply dynamical & visual filtering to more than one page. Helpful for example when you want data in numbers on one page and charts on another

Need this Feature!

To expand this, it would also be very helpful to be able to set initial slicers based on who is viewing a report.
This is a very useful functionality and definitely required this feature.

It would be good to be able to promote a slicer to a report-level filter. I'd say the same for a cross-filter too.
Speaking for myself, the reason I like slicers over filters is because I often have filters that I don't want the end-user to interact with. For example I might filter out junk records. If there was a way to have "end-user" filters that were separated from design-view filters, I think this would help me use filters more. With a slicer I have much more control over what people see.

Copying Kristin Pugi's comment below. This is how I'm building reports and users would much rather interact with slicers on one page and have them apply to all pages rather than using filter pane on selecting Report FIlters.
Must have feature. It would connect pages to reporting solution. Into first page you create overview page with key metrics and filters, you choose proper filters and see different pages filtered same. And not only Slicers - I would suggest making option to visual also act like global report level filter. Is it so hard to add property to the visual/slicer "Act as report level filter" :-)

It is critical to have this feature. Makes it difficult for user to navigate across tabs for analysis. Surprising that feature isn't supported currently.
It is ridiculous that this feature is not implemented in Power BI
Pedro Innecco commented
This is extremely important and I am surprised that this is not implemented in Power BI, since it exists in PowerView (and Excel).
I want to design my reports so the first page is where the user sets all the slicers as parameters, which are applied to all visuals as users move through the other pages of the report.
Basically when editing the interactions of a slicer, we should be able to set these across pages.
It is difficult to have guided analysis without this functionality. We have a number of customers asking about his feature - Global Filters just doesn't cut it.

This is required to be able to set up reports for end users that are flexible
Matt Seigel commented
I'm really surprised this doesnt already exist. Huge functionality loss.
This would be a great add!!!!!
This should also apply to the visualizations.
If I click on a visualization and it applies a filter, that filter should apply across pages.
(We'd also need some kind of button to clear all slicer/viszualization filters)
I've got a page with a slicer and another page with the same slicer, I want to keep the selection of the slicer in page 1 and see the same in page 2
