If the list you're working with has been converted to a table (and only then) you can insert one or more slicers - each one representing a column in the list. Slicers simplify the selection of filter items and provide a clear image of not only what is visible in the list but which fields are currently not showing.

What if we try it here?…It really doesn't lead us into something…that looks very familiar…and where do we see slicer out here?…This is not where we want to be.…Now, this will be available…if we convert the data to a table…and so if you've watched some of the movies in chapter one,…you're familiar with the table concept.…In a nutshell, converting data to a table…allows us to treat the data as a unit, as an entity…
