Seeking your advice on some design issues I’m struggling with. I am currently working on a series of complex financial reports, and the user requirements have each report chockablock with slicers - 8 slicers per page, plus two search/filter boxes. I’m trying to make all the slicers readable and attractive, but minimize the amount of real estate they take up to leave sufficient space for the necessary analysis/visuals on each page (note: I don’t want to use a sliding slicer panel, since I think it’s important for the users to always be able to view the current filter context). So, two questions:
do you have a good, compact slicer design that you be willing to share? (screenshot would be fine, PBIX even better). Most of my slicers will be drop-downs and/or hierarchies, but a few are short enough to be lists
the Microsoft search/filter box is pretty bare-bones. I’ve been considering using the OKViz Smart Filter Pro custom visual instead. Have any of you used that in your reports, and if so how’s your experience with it been?
Thanks in advance for your help.
