Power Bi Sync Slicer

Power BI ‘Sync Slicer’ synchronized the all pages where this filter or slicer have been applied. This new feature added in February 2018 update of Power BI Desktop.

Its also reduce the round trip query, that means each slicer query hit the database two times, once at the time page load and second when you select any value from slicer.

Let’s start with an example:

Suppose, you have 15 to 20 pages in your report and you are interested to see result of particular category of products in all pages, so in that case you have to selected same category one by one in all pages to see the result and it is time consuming process.

So in that situation, sync slicers help us to synchronized same slicer selected value to all pages where you applied this.

Let’s get started-

Suppose you have two page in your report, see below images for your reference-
