Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

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.

Open the Power BI report in the above folder. It contains 3 pages:

Page Contents
Choices Empty
By decade A chart comparing the number of world events by decade
List of events A table listing all of the events in the underlying tables

On the empty Choices page, add the following slicers:

Slicers by continent and country

You should be able to choose by continent and/or by country.

Add in a slicer allowing you to choose the event date:

Event date slicer

The start and end dates should be set automatically for you.

 

Using the Sync slicers pane, configure your report so that the slicers only appear on the first page, but apply to the other pages:

The sync slicers pane

Tick this box to synchronise your slicers.

 

Check that your filtering works across pages, then save your report as Synchronicity, and close it down.
