cascading slicers with single direction relationship between dimension and fact table.

We developed a model in pbi (premium), model has 4 fact tables and they are connecting to multiple shared dimensions. each dimension has single direction relationship with fact table. We are accessing these models using excel. because its a single direction relationship our slicers /filters are not cascading. i checked with experts and it seems like bi directional relationship are not recommended when connecting multiple fact tables to shared dimensions, our users want cascading filters to work in excel, can some one help, how can i enable cascading filters in excel with single direction relationship. really dont want to create calculated column for each and every dimension attribute with a filter on specific measure, that would be a very tidious job and hard to maintain,  i can make it work in pbi but our users are still comfortable with excel and i can't switch them to pbi overnight.

What is the direction of the arrow? Maybe provide a screenshot of your model showing the relationship.
However, it is not possible to export the entire report to Excel and interact, you could try Analyze in Excel but only support table filtering. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/collaborate-share/service-analyze-in-excel
