Sort filter criteria in page level filter descending

Is there a simple way to get a column (field) sorted descending by default so that when it is used as a page level filter the highest value (in my example date) is shown at the top?

 

I could of course sort by another column that works as an reverse sort column but I would like to avoid this workaround.

@Pierre-Se ,

 

I'm afraid in page level filter there's no such option. However, you can create a slicer and select Sort descending.

I already considered this but unfortunately my report page contains too many different filters to put them into slicers without taking too much space on the page.

 

For now I solved it with conditional columns in the data model that just take the date/month/year value *-1 but it is not a very elegant solution. I hope that as the new filter pane is still in preview there will be more advanced configuration available in the future.
