Default Date on Report

I have a report that displays total market value for a list of accounts.  The report supports the ability to select a date to see current or historical market values based on date selected in slicer.  Is it possible to default the report so it defaults to the latest date but still give the end user the ability to change the date if they want to see a historical number.  I am trying to prevent the scenario where no date is selected and the total market value is the sum of all dates available.

Re: Default Date on Report

Hey is it possible to get a screenshot to see how the date/historical data is setup?


Or in your historical calculations you could try add an is filtered:


if ( ISFILTERED('Date'[date],
calculate stuff with filtereddate,

calculate stuff to show with no date filters)


Not sure if something like this will work with your calculations but it is specifiying what to calculate when there is no date filter - which is where you would just calculate your 'default' date

Re: Default Date on Report



Current slicer not support setting default value, I think you can vote below idea which has the similar requirement:

Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration
