    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!

    Yes! This gets to be very important when you start using URLs for dynamic filtering. The chart titles also need to be able to adapt dynamically. Chris Webb had a nice post on this, I can write the measure, I just dont have a good way to display it within the correct visual. Chris gives a work around but that will not work long term.

    Please fix.

    From the comments and scenarios everyone’s describing, the problem is really that you need a way to allow end-users to change which measure is displayed in a visual on the fly.

    As a few folks have mentioned, the FORMAT function might help in the interim, as long as you’re showing the results in text rather than a chart. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/format-function-dax has details on how to use that.

    The expression-based formatting feature that we’ve started work on may help to a certain extent, but that’s really designed to change a visual’s properties rather than the data type or format. We’ll look into extending that work to support this scenario as well.

    We’re moving this to Backlog status – our core plan is to build ways that end-users can change the dimensions or measures that are visible in a chart on the fly. They’ll be able to explore much more freely rather than…

    PLEASE FIX THIS! If I cant get the visual formatted correctly, it just doesn't matter how good the data model is (how many connectors, how many insights, etc).

    Please fix this, and other basic things (format negative numbers as red) so we can get adoption for this tool.
