Starting slider to the far right on a line chart

 

slider.JPG

 

I have line charts that  displays day to day activity for January to current day.

 I would like to display all the information  but I like to start from the far right.

If I wanted to look back, I could pull the slider back to the left.

 if there's some way I could set  the line chart slider to start to  the far right on all my charts ?

Hi @ig2387 

Your demand is a good idea, while it is not supported to implement in Power BI currently.
You can vote up this idea for this function:Microsoft Idea  · Set default x axis scrolling position (powerbi.com)
Or you can submit a new idea to improve the Power BI.
It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft Office products . What’s more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.

I think the best workaround is to descendingly sort your line chart by X axis as mussaenda mentioned.

Hi @ig2387 ,

 

As per my experience, it will always start from the left.

Would you like to arrange your x axis descendingly as a workaround?

Not sure if that's possible, but what about sorting your x axis in the opposite direction so the most recent data are at the left?
