When you insert an Excel Slicer with your Pivot Table it defaults to one column, showing all your items in a vertical layout.

Say that your Pivot Table Slicer is showing months from January to December.  You can change the layout of the buttons to show in 3 separate columns, turning it into a “Quarterly View”.

I explain how to add columns to your Pivot Table Slicer buttons below.  Download our workbook to follow along:
