Date Dropdown Filter Auto Update

Hi

 

I am currently working on a dashboard and want to put the date column in the dropdown slicer.

However, when I put new date into the Excel data file and refresh the dashboard, the date slicer still choose my previous chosen date (12/1/2018), not the most updated one (1/1/2019).

Is there any way that my dropdown date slicer will choose the latest date automatically?

Re: Date Dropdown Filter Auto Update

HI, @Anonymous 

Now when you log out of Power BI and come back to a report, the same items will be selected as when you left.

So for your requirement, it couldn't achieve that set a default value(or maxdate) for a slicer.

and as a workaround, you add a column to judge if the date is max date then set it in visual/page/report level filter or create a measure do the same work. eg. https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Service/How-to-set-a-time-slicer-to-select-the-latest-date-in-default/td-p/319202
