Hi @Anonymous 

 

You can create a MTD measure like below. When a specific date is selected with the slicers, calculate the MTD of that date, otherwise calculate yesterday's MTD. 

MTD = 
VAR _yesterday = TODAY()-1
VAR _endDate = SELECTEDVALUE(DimDate[Date],_yesterday)
VAR _startOfMonth = EOMONTH(_endDate,-1)+1
RETURN
CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Value]),DATESBETWEEN(DimDate[Date],_startOfMonth,_endDate))

 

Before you publish the report, ensure the slicers don't select a date. After publishing the report to service, enter the report's settings pane and turn on the option Don't allow end users to save filters on this report under Persistent filters. Save the settings. Take note that this setting is working on the whole report.

Hi @Anonymous 

 

You can refer to below videos: 

Set Default Slicer Selection to Current Year or Month in Power BI - YouTube

How to set a DATE SLICER to TODAY by default in Power BI - YouTube

 

The problem is that at present slicers are not able to change selected item dynamically, so all these workarounds are using a specific string like "Default", "Today" to replace the default selected date in a column, and use this column in the slicer to replace the original date column.

Thank You for Reply

I tried "Today" calculated column in slicer but it is in text format ,but all my measures are used "day" which is in integer so it causing error.

 

Hi @Anonymous 

 

You could use "Today" column in slicer, but use original date columns in your measures.
