Power BI | Filtering data exercise | Hidden and visible synced slicers
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
The answer to the exercise will be included and explained if you attend the course listed below!
- Go into SQL Server Management Studio;
- Open the SQL file you've just unzipped (you can press CTRL + O to do this); then
- Execute this script.
This will generate the database that you'll need to use in order to do this exercise (note that the database and script are only to be used for exercises published on this website, and may not be reused or distributed in any form without the prior written permission of Wise Owl).
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Import data from the Make-a-Mammal database (installing if you haven't already) by selecting the following tables:
Power BI should import the relationship. If it doesn't, connect the ProductID fields in both tables.
The goal is to create a report with one page of slicers which filter a second page containing no slicers but has a table. Create the first page like this:
A variety of slicers including: a vertical dropdown, horizontal list and numeric slider.
Then add a page that has a visualisation containing the Quantity sales for the Animal column.
Currently selecting values on the slicer page will have no affect on this visual. Don't believe me? Give it a try now.
To have filters affecting other pages, we can turn on Sync Slicers on the view tab:
The funnel determines which slicers will have their values synced. Whilst the eye choose which pages the slicer can be seen.
Repeat for each slicer then save as Synchronised swimi...err Slicing.pbix.
