Using Power Pivot on a tablet. How to scroll in slicers using finger. RRS feed

  • Question

  • On a tablet trying to select slicer items using finger only.   So far using a finger have done the unwanted and unknownly tasks such as refreshing data and deleting the the slicer but do you think I can find a way to select multiple items that are contiguous or non contiguous - NO.  Would like to just flick through the slicer same as the pivot table data.

    Appreciate any help on this.

    Thank you in advance,

    Mike

  • Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your question.

    You can enable multiple select by clicking on "Multi-Select" button. See below images:

    Without "Multi-Select", you can only select one item.


    With "Multi-Select", you can select multiple items by clicking on them.

  • Thank you Wilson.

    If you have a slicer with 100 items in it (such as a product list) how can you use your finger to flick up and down the list.  Only way I've found it to try and touch the scroll bar or hit the scroll bar up and down arrows.  The arrows and the scroll vertical bar are too small for the finger to work accurately.  Is there a way to scroll on the whole list of column data (not the arrows or bar) similar to scrolling a column in Excel Power Pivot table.

    Thanks,

    Mike
