Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Using a slicer to filter visuals, part of Learning Microsoft Power BI Desktop.
- [Voiceover] This is the same Countries and Populations…file that we've been working with…and this is what it looked like…at the end of the last movie.…If you've been working along with me,…I'd asked you to save this file…so that we could add a Slicer to drive our Visualizations.…A Slicer is used here, in Power BI in the same way…that you would use a Slicer in Excel.…It gives your users an easier way to filter data…than having to work with the filters here.…So if you have users that this doesn't look…familiar or accessible for, throw Slicers in…because it makes life a lot easier for everybody.…
To grab a Slicer here, simply choose it.…It's to the right of your cards,…and it has a little funnel on it.…So that's a clue that it's a filter.…I'm going to just drop a Slicer in here,…and it has nothing in it yet.…What I want to be able to do is…filter by continent, so I'm going to choose…Continent, and what this looks like is…that when a user clicks for example, on Asia,…it simply shows them the rates for Asia…or for North America.…
