Hello Everyone, A common issue i often come accross when building reports is finding the best way to show date filtering and also keep the dates dynamic. The Relative Date option for the Slicer is an awesome tool, but it sadly has a major drawback. My customers are not able to both view back and forward in time at the same time. This is especially an issue when dealing with forecasts, since holding a forcast up to historic values is very important. What i suggest is to add a "Between" or "Combine" option under the "Last", "Next" and "This" options. So the customer can choose to see 4 months back and 3 months ahead for instance, since today this needs to be hardcoded into a calendar table, if the date also needs to move dynamically. I believe that this change would please a lot og users and make the "Relative Date" option much more useable. Thanks in advance

It would be helpful to schedule report items to display based on the date or time of day. This would be useful for creating more dynamic reports where the content is customized to display at the time it's most effective. For example, a production manager may want the top chart to display how many widgets were made in the morning, but then have that visual switch to how many widgets were shipped in the evening. Or a report could be scheduled to display a summary visual of the weekend on Monday, with Tuesday through Friday showing the regular report visuals. It would be amazing to be able to schedule content to display at a specific date or time.
