Hierarchy slicer: Not to show field name in made selection


I have in my dashboard a slicer awith two levels  country and city.

When I select Paris inside France, in Desktop the slicer gets  "Multiple Selection" text but when I publish the dashboard the slicer gets "France (country) + Paris (city)".

I would like to see it like this "France + Paris", without name fields in parenthesis. 

Is it possible?

Hi @Tim-1967 ,


we running into the same problem as you Tim. Do you find a workaround for your problem?

@amitchandak : Do you have any idea how we change change the displayed values in the slicer? 

I know we can display them in the titel or header but maybe there is an idea to change the selected slicer values to only values and not attribute name in brackets.

Hello @Tim-1967 ,

We're sorry that you can only control the title of another Visual with a slicer, you can't use Slicer to control your own title.

Slicer 1 only controls the title of the table visual.


You can create a measure like this and put it in the title text.

Measure = 
var _x = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[name1])
var _y = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[name2])
 _x & "+" &_y


If you want to control the title of slicer 1, you must create a new table that contains the hierarchy slicer, and then use it to create a new slicer.

Next, create a new measure to control slicer 1.

Measure 2 = 
var _x = SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[name1])
var _y = SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[name2])
 _x & "+" &_y


If you don't meet your requirements, could you show the exact expected result based on the table you shared?

Best regards

@Tim-1967 , The information you have provided is not making the problem clear to me. Can you please explain with an example.
where you are getting that, can you share some screenshot
Appreciate your Kudos.


Hi @amitchandak,

Point 1 is how I see slicer in desktop

Point 2 is how I see the slicer in the published report (online)

Point 3 is how I'd like to see the slicer in the published report


Hope it helps
