Filter 2 Relative Dates

Is there a way/visualization that enables you to filter between 2 relative dates in Power BI without a DAX expression? I want to avoid DAX as we're looking for a simple slicer visual that can enable us to slimply move between 2 relative dates.

 

Example: on Slicer 2.1, If I select 2 dates they stay the same since they are not relative. But we want to select 2 dates: 6 months in the future and 12 months in the future. Is there any visual or way to achieve this?

 

Thanks,

Re: Filter 2 Relative Dates

Hi @rashidyakubu 

We can achieve your goal by build a Calendar Table.

Calendar = CALENDARAUTO()

Build a relationship between Date in Table and Date in Calendar Table.

Then use this table to build a Slicer.

When you want to see the data between the next 6 month and the next 12 month, you can select the day between 2021/2/28 and 2021/8/31.

Result:

Currently, we can't use relative date slicer or filter to get the date between the dates in the future in power bi.

Re: Filter 2 Relative Dates

Hi @rashidyakubu 

You can achieve your goal by creating a relative date slicer or filter.

I build a table to have a test.

1.    Relative date slicer:

Build a Slicer by Date value and select Relative Date.

2.png

If you want to get the date in the future 6 month, you can select Next 6 Month(Calendar).

Result:

Relative date filter:

Click apply filter.

Re: Filter 2 Relative Dates

Hi Rico,

What I actually mean is to filter between to dates in the future. For example, between the next six months and the next 12 months. Not just one of them.
