Hierarchically arranged slicers

Slicers are interactive objects that allow you to filter visuals, individual pages, or entire Power BI reports. Since recently it is possible to place them in a hierarchical order, which is really convenient and makes it easier for us to review the filtering criteria. The procedure for placing slicers in this order is very simple, and you will find out how it is done in the text that follows …

First, let’s add an empty slicer to the canvas by selecting it from the visual list. When we have done this, it is enough to drag reporting dimensions that we want to show in the slicer to the Field box, and the order of their display will affect how the hierarchy is organized. Next, if we enter the visual formatting menu, within the Items section, there is a slider which can be used to change the indentation of hierarchy elements. The Expand/Collapse Icon drop-down list is used to change the appearance of buttons (icons) that are used to expand or collapse chosen hierarchical branch.
