Filter a slicer by selecting a row in a table (visual)

I have a table (visual) with on column, cities. 

 

I have a slicer with the same column, cities.

 

When I select a value in the slicer, the table gets filtered. But the other way around (when I select a row in the table) does not work, the slicer does not gets filtered.

 

Is there a soluction for that?

Hi @aleksvp ,

It's by design. When we click on charts, the result will not affect to the slicer. We can use slicer to filter table or other slicers, we can also use table to filter table or other charts intead of slicer.

Hi, just chiming in, since I run into the same 'issue' (if you can call it that).

I understand that this is by design, but I do think that design is flawed:

If a user selects a value in a table (e.g. city A) and thereafter selects a different value in the slicer (e.g. city B), that results in an impossible filter for most other visuals (city = 'A' AND city = 'B'). A user then first has to undo the select in the table to make the visuals show data again. I find this very un-userfriendly (is that a word?).

 

As a user I would expect the selections to work together properly, for instance make the selection in the slicer to replace the selection in the table. But I cannot find a way to make this work.

It is not a relationship problem. I'm using the same column on both. There is only one table in the model (for this example, of course).

Set the relationship to "both directions" (bidirectional).
