Excel charts in Office for Mac 2011 losing functionality

When i create a pivot chart (line chart, bar chart) on a PC using Office Professional 2013 and someone opens this chart using a Mac with Office 2011 for Mac they do not have the same functionality.  All the buttons for filtering are not present.  Is there a add-in needed to keep full compatibility?

As this is neglected I'll throw this option in:- Office 2016 for Mac is now available and (I believe, I don't use a Mac so can't guarantee) includes the filtering options

thanks for the response, not sure if my users will be able to get office 2016 for Mac so I was hoping there was a solution for 2011

Pivot charts are not supported in Mac 2011 so is it possible they are being displayed as regular charts without all the pivot table slicing and dicing?
