Default date filter to display N months data excluding x months

My report needs to display 6 months data (excluding last 2 months)  on loading the report .   For ex :  If viewing today(8/30/18), it should default my date filter to   Jan 2018 through June 2018  .  Once it is loaded , user should be given flexibility to select different date range to view the data using a slicer .   

 

Currently, I have used page filter and manually set advanced filter date range to 1/1/2018 through 6/30/2018  . Though this displays 6 months of data , it doesn't allow user to change the date range to prior dates.

 

Thanks in advance

Thank you, Jimmy.   I just voted for it .

 

Meanwhile , I'm thinking of using custom column to flag it if date is within my default date range and then use it as page level filter.  This solves setting default date range , but still not sure on toggle between default range and custom range in case if user wants to select different date range .

 

Thanks
