Date Slider to be defaulted to current date and current date -5

HI Team , 

we do have requirement to default our date slider to current date and current date -5. The slider is picking the min and max date values and we are good with the max date value but the default min value whould be max date -5. This requirement is only for default setting and user should have feasibility to change. 

Any inputs on this.

Hi, @dhwani 

 

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end.

Table:

You may use the 'Date' column as a slicer and set the slicer as 'Relative Date Slicer'.

Today is 9/14/2020. Here is the result.

@dhwani Can you use a relative Date slicer? Probably the cleanest. Otherwise you can do it by creating a new column and an additional slicer but it is kind of ugly.

@dhwani , No function is available to default the date slicer. The max you can do is have a column like this control the dates in the slicer or a slicer near to the date

 

If( [Date]>=today() -5 && [Date] <= Today() , "Last Five" ,"Others")
