Slicer configuration: dependence on viewer

Hi all,

 

consider the following situation: I have published a Report on Power BI Service with several Slicers. When I choose a specific configuration of these slicers, close the report and reopen it, the configuration of the slicers remains the same. In my understanying, this cannot be the case if we have 2 viewers: the specific configuration of the slicers should not influence the configuration of another person who accesses the Dashboard at the same time, right? 

 

And is there a possibility to automatically 'reset' all slicers to some default configuration whenever the dashboard is opened (without using bookmarks and the need to press a button to manually reset the slicer configuration)?

 

 

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi @Eddy18 ,

 

Every time a user opens a report in the PowerBI Service, it will show either the default configuration of slicers (set when the report was last time edited) or the configuration of a previous selection of that user, like a "cache" of that selection.

 

The user can always see if they have a "cache" selection if the green back arrow on the top right corner of the page is green:

The users can also define a personal bookmark only for them in the PowerBI Service (which will not impact anyone else's access)

Hope this answer solves your problem!
