Hi everyone. I’m really excited to say we’ve started work on this, we’re planning to address two common use cases for this. First, having slicers that appear on every page so you can see them as a restatement, but keeping the selected value in sync across all those pages. That way you select once and see all the slicers updated. Secondly, you asked to have the first page in a report contain all the slicers – if that’s what you’re looking for you can set up the same synchronized slicers but hide them where you don’t want them visible (see the new Selection pane launched in October!)
Thanks for your continued support of the suggestion – we’ll keep you updated when we ship the feature.Chris commented

Agree. Ability to load binary and define ‘open with’ program to serve up files stored in Sql blob. PDF specifically is my need.
The relative date slicer (a Preview feature as of June ‘17) gets us close to this with the ’This Month’ or ‘This Year’ settings. That is a dynamic date selection that updates based on the current system date. We plan to add a ‘YTD’/‘MTD’ option to specifically select a range from the start of the month/year up to today, hopefully that’ll address the remaining requirements!
