Tables and slices are each entities, which means their views are independent of each other.
@Grant_Stead you were right when you said you’ll need to create a duplicate of the view for the slice, because that’s exactly what you have to do.
I personally think that it’s great that they are treated separately, because that gives you the ability to show data differently even though it’s still basically the same data… Because ones of slice and ones and actual table. Or both are slices, or whatever.
Think about it like this, maybe I want to show the past 60 days of something as a table on top (that way you can easily see numbers and labels and such) and then a graph of the exact same data underneath it.
The only way you can accomplish that, is by creating a separate slice and making another ref rows in your original table… And now you have two separate entities, that are both filled with the same data. But because they are separate entities, they have different view controls.
