I want date slicer to end on today's date, but still be editable


I am designing a report with a date range slicer. I want the slicer to automatically show a specific start date and end on today's date. However, I want the stakeholder I am designing the report for to be able to edit the date range if they choose to.


Today is September 23, 2020.
On the report I want the date range slicer to automatically show 01/01/2019 - 09/23/2020. When I open the report, the visuals should be showing me data points between these ranges.
If I come back tomorrow to look at the report I want it to automatically show me 01/01/2019 - 09/24/2020, etc.

However, I also need to be able to edit this date range while viewing the report, and so far I cannot find a way that this is possible. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi @rpredmore ,


You may try to create a calculated table. The TODAY function will retrun the current date.

Table = CALENDAR(DATE(2019,1,1),TODAY())



You can check more details from here.

Hi @rpredmore 

attached you'll find a pbix file with a dynamic date range. If you open this file and refresh it, it expands the date range to today in slicer.

Assuming you don't have data in your dataset from the future, you should be able to do this out of the box by just moving the beginning of the slider date range to where you want?
