            The relative date slicer (a Preview feature as of June ‘17) gets us close to this with the ’This Month’ or ‘This Year’ settings. That is a dynamic date selection that updates based on the current system date. We plan to add a ‘YTD’/‘MTD’ option to specifically select a range from the start of the month/year up to today, hopefully that’ll address the remaining requirements!

            Is there any current ability to have BI filter automatically by "Recent 12 Weeks" without having to change the filter every time like this post mentions with the need for dynamic date selection?

            If not, I would certainly like to see this type of option rolled into the need for a Dynamic Date Slicer. To select Recent Weeks or Months that may not fall into the normal ranges like MTD.

            This would basically run like selecting "Last Week" through "-12 weeks from this week". Anything in that manner would be huge for my reporting.

                        This is the entire reason my company needs Power BI! I started using BI and now that I have access to our SQL Server, I came to find out I cannot combine the data I need to combine unless it becomes possible to use DirectQuery from 2 different databases on the Server plus mix in some imports.......
