Inner filter (a copy of) your big enought calendar table with your data table. Add a column like YEAR*10000+MONTH*100+DAY and erase all rows but the last one and you will get a ONE ROW TABLE.

 

Make a DAX expresion like if(isfiltered(A),(if(hasonevalue(A), selectedvalue(A), ¿? ), <one reference here to the one row table that you want to make default>)       

 

A, for example can be the real calendar, or the country list, or the state list or whatever you want to make default behaviour.

 

When you refresh your data, your ONE ROWS TABLES will change, so your defaults also will change.

Re: Setting the Default Value of a Slicer

GOOD NEWS!! The Power BI March 2019 Update just released a custom visual called the "Power Slicer" you can import this visual from the marketplace. This visual has a million more options than the normal slicer and more importantly allows you to set a default value. This can be done by going into the format tab under the "selection" options and setting the default value to a literal in your list.

For example if you had a power slicer with a bunch of years in it:
.2015
.2016
.2017
.2018
.2019

 

You can set "Default Selection" to be "2019"(minus the quotes). But if you want it to be dynamic and always show the current year, then even more good news, this options accepts javascript, so you can set the "Default Selection" to "(new Date()).getFullYear"(minus the quotes)  and the Default will always be the current year. If you have a more specific need you can always google it for some javascript help, and someone on StackOverflow will probably have your answer.

Hope this helps,

Xonde.

Re: Setting the Default Value of a Slicer

Hi all!

What if I want to month with data will be checked by default after PQuery update. And a month without data just will be shown in the filter? Is it possible?

Re: Setting the Default Value of a Slicer

HI there

Currently that is not possible because when you select something it will keep that month selected.

What would work better is to rather use a value that does not change each month such as "Current Month"

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!
