Text attributes can be 'searched' within report slicers. However, integers cannot. For example, if someone wants to quickly find and slice by a Customer Id, it is very cumbersome right now - lots of scrolling. A simple search by Customer Id (as an integer) within the slicer would make it much faster and a better user experience

Requested in 2018 and still not there. This should have been there on day 1!

Yes! Exact same issue, need to search by ID numbers. Workarounds work but...should be able to search integers

'@Anonymous: True, and that is what we did. We just shouldn't have to do that.

Agree. As a workaround, you can duplicate the column, change type to text and use that in the slicer.
