Power BI Desktop Slicer not showing all Names

Slicer has been used  to Filter Data by Employee Name , altough in the Model  traversing is happening through Empid . Since Employee Name is aware by Business , so Employee Name has been used.

 

Even though we have Employee Name as duplicate it is not showing up in the sclier (It  should show 2 names even though they are same ) . While printing the data in the table we can see duplicate name is getting printed with different EmpId but Sclier shows 1. Please suggest

Slicer will always group together the same string, filtering both employee ids.
I'd suggest concatenating the Employee Name with Id in order to have unique values

Hi subhadip,

 

When you create a slicer visual based on one column, it means same value in the column will be a category though values in other columns in that row may be different. 

 

In addtion, do you want to filter other columns using [Employee Name] column and [Empid] column? If so, you can create another slicer based on [Empid] column.

User is searching Employee Data based on name .

Is it the property of the  Sclier to show always DISTINCT value .   Our expectation is  even though  employee name are duplicate 

it should  come up in the slicer .

 

Kindly suggest
