Data slices in the QM


Hi all!
There is a flat table of sales records with the fields: [Date, Quarter, Salesman, Region, Product, NumCustomers, Net Sales, ProfitOrLoss]. The values of the Net Sales and ProfitOrLoss fields are assigned for analysis. The list of products sold consists of three names: [FastCar, RapidZoo, SuperGlue]. First, you need to build two reports for the Net Sales field. Report 1 (R1) is the total revenue by months and years. Report 2 (R2) is a summary of revenue by years and for the company as a whole for two years. As everyone knows, this is an elementary task. But here’s what makes it harder: reports R1 and R2 must be parameterized by Product slices. Here’s what I mean:
Does anyone know, if it is possible to mimic data slices in QM? Yes or No?
Good luck

1. I have found a suitable solution to this problem. So my answer is: “Yes, data slices can be implemented in QM!“. This is a data slice by the Product field:

However, unlike spreadsheets, changes in the data members for a slice on the presentation canvas will have to be adjusted manually. For example, if the number of products becomes more than three. In this case, it will need to add the missing switches to the canvas and link them to the corresponding cells of the slicer matrix. Once again, this remark applies only to the canvas. The counting part of the model will automatically work out such changes.

Interesting. Yes, the problem is when new item is added, unfortunately we have to add switch manually which is not optimal
