Excel 2016 - Pivot Table Filter Troubleshooting

I am working with an involved PowerPivot data model in Excel 2010. This model has multiple sources of data and numerous pivot tables. Some of the people on the distribution list use Excel 2016 so to make their lives easier, I am providing a "pre-upgraded" workbook for Excel 2016 for them.

I have a particular slicer that is connected to a few pivot tables and everything works fine in 2010. After upgrading the data model to 2016, the slicer stops working due to one particular pivot table. I looked at the pivot table and it will not allow that field to be added as a slicer or filter. I don't believe this is as a relational issue since it works fine in 2010, but I could be missing something.

Anyone have any experience with this, particularly when upgrading data models? Something must have changed in the Excel versions. More than happy to provide any more useful info.
