Date slicer inactive relationship



I have a DimDate table (calendar) and FactAggInvoice table with two dates:

1. Invoice Date (active relationship) 

2. Date_Period_Start (inactive relationship)



I want to create two slicers:

1. To filter FactAggInvoice by Invoice Date

2. To filter FactAggInvoice by Date_Period_Start


I assume that bookmarks should be used in this case to avoid the influence of both slicers on the matrix at the same time. 

What is the way to activate this inactive relationship between FactAggInvoice and DimDate table in the slicer. 


I would appreciate all your suggestions.

Have a great day!

@Delphia , if you want to filter the same period for both dates, Userelationship in measure can help and you can use the filter from date table.

example  Userelationship -

If you need the filter on the different periods you case those dates as filters or have two date tables, one for each
