Save Filter Selections

Has anyone ever engineered a way to save filter selections on a report? We have a need for non-authoring Power BI users to be able to: 


1) Make a selection within a slicer

2) Save their selection

3) Have the file saved somewhere (either a local file or database)

4) Reopen their report and pick back up where they left off.

 

Ideally, this would be done in an out-of-the-box Power BI visual. However, we understand that maybe it would have to be a custom visual.

Any tips/info would be great!

Thanks!

Hi All

I am aware the the question is really old, but few newer searches regarding saving filters, I would recommend using Bookmarks.

See this video for reference https://youtu.be/eptuk8KRQVI

Hello @paynemiller,

 

You can use the following example from ChicletSlicer source code:

https://github.com/Microsoft/PowerBI-visuals-ChicletSlicer/blob/master/src/chicletSlicer.ts#L636-L65...

persistProperties method allows to save any json config in visual settings.
