Power BI Tip #5: All About Slicer Controls in Power BI

Slicers are really the key feature in Power BI, that make the Dashboards & Visualizations come alive. They add a bit of interactivity in the dashboards and allow the users to select, slice and dice the information in different ways and methods.

With a slicer, you can choose any available year, and the entire report can be filtered to that particular year, or month, or product category, fiscal period, department or division.

Slicers can be created using Checkboxes, Radio buttons, Flat Chicklet style buttons and can be formatted to allow a single, multiple or all value pick.

Since there are a plethora of features, I decided to record a short Power BI tutorial highlighting the key features of Slicers in Power BI.

Hope you will benefit from these features and will be able to build some interactivity in your Power BI dashboards.

Hope you found this tip useful.
