Time of Day Slicer

Here is what I need: a way to be able to select either a single time value or a range of time values from a TimeOfDay table, using a slicer with a slider.

 

I have separate Date and TimeOfDay columns.  The TimeOfDay has a all the minutes of the day as values. it's fomatted in hh:mm style. I need a TimeOfDay slider slicer, but when I make the slicer only the dropdown and list slicers are available as options. These two slicer styles wont do for what I looking to do. I have done some research on this already and have not found an answer. There was another post on this exact problem. It says it was solved but both the OP of that post  and I dont believe the solution solved the problem we are having. 

 

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Time of Day Slicer

Hi @v-frfei-msft,

 

I went ahead and upvoted the idea. I also came up with my own work around it. I basically made new columns for the hours, and minutes of my TimeOfDay Values. Then created two different sliding Slicers for the Hours and Minutes. I believe this is currently the best way to create "time slicers" it is very simple and effective. However, still hope they start working on implementing Time into their slicers like they have done for date. 

 

Thanks,

Amirreza

Re: Time of Day Slicer

Hi @AmirReza,

 

Date slicer doesn’t include lower grains than day: hours, minute, seconds. There is an idea, you can vote it up.

Based on my test, you can use Hierarchy slicer to work around this issue. Import a Hierachy Slicer from marketplace and put columns TimeOfDay and Date into the Slicer , then we can get the result as below.

Re: Time of Day Slicer

Hi @v-frfei-msft

 

That looks like a good work around however my data contains almost all the minutes of the day. So I will need a between Slicer for my TimeOfDay values. The dropdown/list that the Hierachy Slicer provides wont do much good for me. 

 

I very much appreciate the help. 

 

Thanks,
