3. Display filters applied to data
To understand properly our data, the very first thing we need to do is to perfectly know the filters applied to data. There are many ways to filter data (in the data source, in Power Query, in report/page/visual filters, slicers, …). So if you don’t understand your filters, you don’t understand your data. I will show you here how I display dynamically the filters applied to data.
How to display filters applied to data
- Create a measure in the table which is meant to be filtered
Selected filters = VAR CR_LF = " " // This is a simple carriage return VAR Company = IF(ISFILTERED(Customers[CompanyName]) ; "Company = " & CONCATENATEX(ALLSELECTED(Customers[CompanyName]) ; Customers[CompanyName] ; " , ") & CR_LF ; "") VAR Category = IF(ISFILTERED(Categories[CategoryName]) ; "Category = " & CONCATENATEX(ALLSELECTED(Categories[CategoryName]) ; Categories[CategoryName] ; " , ") & CR_LF ; "") VAR Product = IF(ISFILTERED(Products[ProductName]) ; "Product = " & CONCATENATEX(ALLSELECTED(Products[ProductName]) ; Products[ProductName] ; " , ") & CR_LF ; "") RETURN Company & Category & Product
- Add a table visual to your ‘Filters’ page
- Add the ‘Selected filters’ measure to the table
Don’t forget to update your ‘Selected filters’ measure and your ‘Clear filters’ bookmark when you add more slicers to the ‘Filters’ page.
Select some filters and see how the ‘Selected filters’ responds.
