Single day date slicer



Is there a way to filter information using only one date argument?


Like using a normal date slicer but with only one date picker.


I used relative day filtering and works well, i just want that my report is more user-friendly

This is the biggest reason people (IT Director(s)) are moving from Power BI.  It is one of the top expected functionality items, period.   Currently this expected and demanded functionality is horded to some MS developer that is selling the Custom Made controll.  Honestly I may suggest trashing this platform as its rediculous and 90% of my development time is going twords telling all the business people that this is not avilable and MS is forcing us to use the Filter pane - and you have to use and toggle and learn and teach every user how to use the slicers / filter pane.


Failure 100%

Hi @isaacRLS,



If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to select a single date in date Slicer to filter other information?


If you have a date column, you could create a Date list Slicer and turn on the single selection in the format pane.


The picture below should be your expected output.




If you need additional help please share your expected output.

Hi @v-piga-msft


Yes that was i looking for, but I was wondering if there is a way to keep using the date picker from the calendar or maybe a custom visual.


I also have in mind use the between date slicer, and made a formula to automatically change the dates. i.e. if user change the start date, then copy the start date into the end date

@isaacRLS  : did you solve the below thread by writing formula to select the start date from end date ?. If yes can you share the steps please

Not applicable



I need exactly the same behaviour: Just pickup a single day from a visual calendar... it's possible between two date with the "Between" choice. For the moment I use the "dropdown list" choice in a segment but it's not efficient and friendly when you have 3 years and more of data...
