How visuals cross-filter each other in a Power BI report
One of the great features of Power BI is the way all visuals on a report page are interconnected. If you select a data point on one of the visuals, all the other visuals on the page that contain that data change, based on that selection.
By default, visualizations on a report page can be used to cross-filter, cross-highlight, and drill the other visualizations on the page. For example, selecting a state on a map visualization may highlight the column chart and filter the line chart to display only data that applies to that one state.
Exactly how the visuals on a page interact is set by the report designer. Designers have options to turn visual interactions on and off, and to change the default cross-filtering, cross-highlighting, and drilling behavior. Note that if you use visual A to visually interact with visual B, visual-level filters from visual A will be applied to visual B.
The terms cross-filter and cross-highlight are used to distinguish the behavior described here from what happens when you use the Filters pane to filter and highlight visualizations.
