Key Takeaways

  • Lets you expand and dig into each level of your hierarchy data.
  • Allows you to display a measure value at the lowest level.
  • Replaces the idea using multiple regular slicers to represent what the Hierarchy Slicer does.

In this Hierarchy Slicer we’re showing the ability to filter down a product hierarchy.

  • Under the Format paintbrush there are a few customizations available for the Hierarchy Slicer.
  • Under the Selection section you can choose to turn on the ability to multi-select values in the Hierarchy (by default it’s set to single select).

  • The Header section allows you to change the slicer Title and adjust other formatting settings of the title.

  • The Items section allows you to adjust the formatting of the hierarchy values.

In addition to these properties, there are settings that appear on every visual to adjust the background color, add a border around the visual and lock the aspect ratio.
