Filter slicer and Bookmarks always on current Month

Hello everyone!

I have built a new report with a monthly slicer/ filter.

Every user can select a specific month to get the values for our sales.

Is there any chance to have a dynamic filter, that is always filtered on the current month?

For now, I am using a bookmark that is updated monthly manually.

 

 

Ps. I asked the same question in a couple of other forums but received no proper reply.

Hi, @neeleshbi 

 

According to your description, I think you can create a date table to display all the dates in the current month,new a relationship with main table date, then use it as a date slicer.

Table =
VAR a =
    YEAR ( TODAY () )
VAR b =
    MONTH ( TODAY () )
RETURN
    CALENDAR ( DATE ( a, b, 1 ), EOMONTH ( TODAY (), 0 ) )

If it doesn’t solve your problem, please feel free to ask me.

 

Best Regards

@neeleshbi  You can use the relative date slicer and set to in last 1 month, but this can only be done with a date slicer, not a month slicer.
