Hey y’all. Thanks for all the feedback! We’ve thought some about multi-column sort, but don’t have a timeline currently to share. Keep voting so you’ll get notified once we start working on it.
We’re looking into this request, thanks for everyone’s votes and comments.
It looks like many of the requests will be addressed by the new ‘Sticky filters’ capability. Now when you log out of Power BI and come back to a report, the same items will be selected as when you left.
For those who’re looking to have a ‘last month’ selection, the relative date slicer might help.
Those with comments about currencies where having multiple selected makes the report meaningless – the report will load with whatever selection the author saved, so if you save it with one currency selected your users will see that by default.
If there are scenarios that these features don’t address, please let us know in your comments – if you are really specific it’ll help us build the feature to work just the way you want!
Thanks again!Greg commented
We're deploying this report to dozens of customers who'll each have different values in the drop-down in question. Since the items will be different, I can't hardcode anything.
Instead, I'd like the default selected values in the pull down to be dictated by another field in that table (I'm currently passing in a RANK() value from SQL). If this other field has certain characteristics (<= 5 for example), initiate the report with those items selected in the drop down and no others. My Sankey chart is too noisey otherwise.
