Is there a search-input-function in BI?

In my data set, I have approx 100k products, but is there function who make it more easier to search for a certain product in a slicer? like filter or something that I can have in my deskop? (it works good in data section of course) but not in in deskop 😕

Does anyone know if these 2 text filter plugins For power BI, work on power BI Service?

  • Text Filter by Microsoft
  • Smart Filter by OkViz

And if familiar with the SERVICE do plugins work on there or just in BI Desktop?


i`m also concerned that some companies and corporations wont accept plugins anyway.


I just wanted a search box on a page, that did a specific Field Item search (like a product) and changed the visuals on that page according to whats in the search box.

The slicer has a search function, but its not intuitive for an end user to know it is there (in editing view).


Creating a matrix one can isolate products individually and affect page filters, but if there are 10-100k elements (field items) in the matrix a search box would be better for me or end users who know what they are searching for.


The 2 available filter addons also only search for one word, not two like "this AND that", or "Bill Murray"

And they require a matrix anyway to show results, which I wont always want.

@amitchandak thank you for the link, but I don't think I have it?



Hi @Anonymous ,


They are present in the appsource and you will have to import them:

1. Click on 3 dots(Get More Visuals) in visualization pane


2. Click on "Get more visuals"


3. Search the visualization name, press enter and click on Add


4. Click on Ok if any pop-up occurs and you will have the visualization available.



Same process goes for importing any the other visualisation as well


Give a thumbs up if this post helped you in any way and mark this post as solution if it solved your query !!!
