Setting the Default Value of a Slicer

Hi Experts,

 

Need your help in this.

I have a slicer in my Power BI report, which uses a text field - 'Cities', it shows all the cities in Canada.

Is there any way we can ser 'Calgary' as the default city, when the user first access this report.

 

Please help.

 

Thanks.

If you select Calgary in your slicer and save the PBIX file, then the next time that someone opens it, Calgary will be selected. Also, when you publish to the Service I believe it asks now if you want to preserve the selections as defaults.
