    I get constant complaints from users about this as they can't use Power BI for presentations due to this limitation. Any word on if this will be addresses?

    However... I don't think this change was done for SSAS Tabular as DATEDIFF there still returns the same error...?

    I want to expand this a bit and say this could also be achieved by making some filters "required" which could be VERY useful anyway. Effectively they would be report prompts. Nothing happens until a selection is made. It would be very helpful in many instances to mark some filters as "Required Prompt" which would mean when NOTHING is selected, the page waits for that filter to be specified. Then set the "clear" action to "Default to All" or "Default to Required Prompt/None". Lastly, this would really help with reports that can have very LARGE result sets that people don't need to run the entire result set but a default selection isn't really a good option.

    Agree, we have SLAs tracked on a dashboard and being able to send an email when an item was nearing an SLA violation would be VERY useful. Contact the item's contact and their backup to show items nearing SLA violations, etc...

    Yes, there should be an option to set any DEFAULT date for all the date filters. Default Begin, Default End dates. Be that for relative or between or greater than etc... Then let us drop in a dax measure or write a quick measure or something. Relative date slicers that need to always be last 6 months but are last 6 months from LAST week for example. A Between Slicer that defaults to a 12 month period, but always goes to the last day of two months prior and shows that 12 month period and lets the user adjust it. Many users want to start with the last 6 months or 12 month period, but then be allowed to change it. Currently there is no way to do this.

    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!

    Please allow us to use DAX in the properties to specify our begin and end dates. Also, please allow the user to click on a relative date slicer and specify their OWN begin and end dates. Currently if we use a relative date slicer and the user decides they need to view the data with a different begin and end date...that is not possible.

    If we show last 6 months and the user decides they really want to see a 9 month window, but starting 3 months ago, that is not possible. They can't just click the filter and pick 1/1/2017 through 9/1/2017. They would have to key in last 24 months or similar to move back that far and they would have far more data displayed than desired (which throws off averages, etc..)

    I agree this is badly needed.

    Right now for time you can do a relative date but that is ALWAYS from today's date backwards. What if I want to do a sliding window of 6 months but I don't want it from today's date? There should be a way to specify default values by entering DAX into the filter properties. Something like a calculated column where it can evaluate the situation and then select the first date of a period, or show 6 months but starting with the end of the last month, etc... This is especially useful for data where the WH is loaded in stages, such as end of month sales data. I don't want to see the data for today (the 15th) I want to see the data for the last 6 months starting with a dynamic condition. Additionally, when you do use a relative date selection, the user can NOT change the begin/end dates anymore. The filter visual should allow you to click it and specify a start/stop by picking the calendar dates.

    Agree, currently if you set "Select All" option to off, it still selects all by having none selected.

    It needs to require a selection before loading the report. If you have nothing selected in a filter, then it should not execute. Basically WHERE 1=2.

    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!

    Very much agree! Allowing all date slicers (all slicers really) to have dynamic default dates would be wonderful. Ideally do something where we can just enter some DAX and let it evaluate then we could display things like MAX values of Shipped Orders to always default a slicer to the most recent order shipment date. A relative start/stop date so we can have BETWEEN date filters, but be able to set them using relative terms (the relative slicer is great but you can NOT change the date picker calendar so you can never change from last 6 months to pick your own start/stop dates)
