Allow a user to set the default value for a slicer or tile-by value on a page/dashboard, so that when the Power View page is opened for the first time, the default value is selected.
eg. If the page has a slicer for Year or Month, allow the user to configure the most recent Year or Month to be selected by default.

We're looking into this request, thanks for everyone's votes and comments. It looks like many of the requests will be addressed by the new 'Sticky filters' capability. Now when you log out of Power BI and come back to a report, the same items will be selected as when you left. For those who're looking to have a 'last month' selection, the relative date slicer might help. Those with comments about currencies where having multiple selected makes the report meaningless - the report will load with whatever selection the author saved, so if you save it with one currency selected your users will see that by default. If there are scenarios that these features don't address, please let us know in your comments - if you are really specific it'll help us build the feature to work just the way you want! Thanks again!

It would be nice to also have the toggle option to force the slicer to always have at least one filter aktivated. This is a very important option if you have a lot of data points in your visual. Otherwise the user would choke on information overflow.

Any update on this please !! This is a very basic / standard feature.

Why does this even need to be requested? Its a STANDARD of every predecessor.

This is one of the things that knock the wind out of developers and invertors and IT Directors.

Logically, the only one path which is a conspiracy which is a fake word that some US Department came up when someone hit the nail on the head but they cant / wont divulge the truth (10+% of the time - Right)
"Conspiracy" ~Is it because developers also make and sell custom controls on the side ?

Just trim some of the code on the existing controls and let us design / develop and sell your product.
Respectfully.

Please add this feature, if we could set the start date to be current month it helps reduce load time when users first open a report or reset filters to default, and users could still select other date range if required.

Please add this.

We have a need to do this on our financial calendar. We have a hierachy date slicer that we want to default to current financial month but still have the ability to change when in the report

P

Any updates on this enhancement?

I need the ability to default a slicer value based on a query. For example, my data has accounting balances from multiple periods. I always want data from the most current open period to be shown by default. My accounting periods are called JAN-20, FEB-20, MAR-20 and so forth. I can't use a relative date slicer because the period names are not dates.
I can write a query to check the status of all periods to determine if they are open or closed. I can then write a query to determine which open period is the most current. This result needs to be passed to the slicer as the period name.

P

Any update on this? Pleeeeeease!!!!

Hi Admin,

The sticky filters does not do the trick. For example, I would like a slicer to always select the most current month when a user opens the report, or at least when it refreshes.

Say today is July 31, 2020. July 2020 would be the slicer selection.
But on August 1, 2020, the slicer should be set to August 2020.

The Sticky slicer will keep it at July 2020 though and there is no way to set it to August unless manually select it in the desktop and re-publish every month.
