Date slicer move between dates on data only not continuous date steps

Hello guys,

Date data I put on slice was not a continous date data. It is somethink like:

But when I slide the slicer, its step is continous date in range (e.g. ... 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 Aug...).

Can I just move between date existing on my data only (e.g. ... 02, 09, 14, 16, 20 Aug...)?

Re: Date slicer move between dates on data only not continuous date steps

HI @navafolk ,

If you turn on time intelligence feature, power bi will analyze these data type fields and generate hidden calendar for time intelligence functions.(these inexistent date records are from that calendar)

Power BI Date Dimension; Default or Custom? Is It Confusing?

Maybe you can try to turn off 'time intelligence' option to prevent continuous date records, but it will affect other calculations who use time intelligence feature.

Hi @navafolk ,

As blog mentioned(you can hover your mouse to '!' icon to see detail descriptions), it will turn on/off to detect new date/time type fields to generate hide calendar.(it not effect existed date fields, you need to create new pbix file to enable this effect)

I turned off all 'Time intelligence', started a new file but it really did not work for me. 😞
