Do you (by default) use Slicers, or the Filter Pane for user-driven filtering?

Just curious what everyone else does / your thinking. 


For standard user-defined filtering, there are 3 options


Curious what you use and how it works for you / your thoughts on what is by default 'best'?

The filter pane is in experience the worst option for users. It to complicated for most my users and not very user friendly. I only use it for report design filter and usually hide it from the users.

So my solution are usually a "Slicer Panel" (I'm not sure why it would trouble) or just a regular slicer if there is only 1 or 2 needed.

Thanks.  I think a slicer panel is easy if the report is simple. But once the report starts using bookmarks for other purposes / it gets a bit painful to maintain imo.
