Choose Elements

From the Choose Elements panel, select the elements that will be included in the slicer. There are three ways to determine the slicer's elements:

  • Free Selection: manually select the hierarchy's member elements that should be included in the slicer.
  • Level: this option is relevant when working with OLAP or Tabular hierarchies, or regular SQL hierarchies (click here to learn more). When creating a slicer based on a regular hierarchy, select this option to specify a particular level of the given hierarchy.
  • Set: choose this option use a custom list as the slicer.
