When using direct query you should be able to change a date axis to show only the month. This works using excel or when doing a transform but neither of these are possible using DirectQuery. Even workarounds like FORMAT can't be used with direct query. This really needs fixing!

I can't believe this functionality is not natively available. The work around of creating new columns and using DAX time functions is laborious to say the least! PLEASE MAKE THIS FEATURE!

Another comment - because this really needs to be done.

Please take a look on this - causes so much re work!

Also critical: hierarchy dates for charts!

Please look into this ASAP.

Please add this! Agree wholeheartedly that Direct Query & Import modes should have the same date handling functionality!!!

Please add DATE HIERARCHY in Direct Query mode also. Why there is such a difference in import and direct query mode. Too much difficulty in handling such situation.

I do not understand why direct query acts differently than import. This needs to be fixed. I am spending silly amounts of time trying to work around it.

Import and DirectQuery data connectivity modes should have the same common functionality of Date/Calendar hierarchy. This is so overdue from Power Bi team. Please consider implementing it as soon as possibly can.

I would rank this request from user community above all new futures released monthly.
