Use a Measure as a Slicer

Seems like this should be simple but no.  I wasn't able to apply the suggestions in this forum so I attached a link to a simple Power BI that shows what I'm trying to do.

I have a table with Customer, State and Amount and a Measure that catogorizes the Priority:

I need a slicer for the Priority, 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi @PaulBethancourt 

As you can't use the measure as a slicer you need to add the segmentation as a calculated column.

From your sample, I understood that this segmentation is on the customer level.
So you can use dax formula :

Customers_priority = if (CALCULATE(sum(Data[Amount]),ALLEXCEPT('Data','Data'[Customer]))>=50000,"One",
if(CALCULATE(sum(Data[Amount]),ALLEXCEPT('Data','Data'[Customer]))>=10000,"Two","Three"))

And then use it on your slicer
