I am having a strange problem with the timeline slicer. when I select a date range and later on clicking on some visual the timeline slicer range selection disappears to a select all on the visual. However the selected data range is still selected.
There is no interaction with any visual on the timeline, but it keeps happening. I am unable to understand why.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Could you please describe more details about your scenario? We need to know that what version of Power BI Desktop you use and in which type of visualizations you get the timeline slicer issue. We will appreciate it if you post a screenshot.
Time selection Feb to Mar on months
Cross Highligt the data bar on antoher visual, set to not interact with the timeline
The selected cells are not displayed anymore, the time selection is not effected though
I see the same problem in Power BI Desktop Version 2.34.4372.501 64-bit (April 2016).
Here are the steps I can use to reproduce the problem:
On Step 5, the bar chart sometimes changes to display data for all dates, and other times it continues to display just the 2015 data.
I would expect the Timeline to stay on 2015 when I change selections on the Chicklet slicers. This is the behavior in Excel PowerPivot.
I have downloaded the latest version which is Timeline.184.108.40.206 version but it still doesn't work properly:
1. Picture one is with slider selecting May 2017 gives me 22.5 days available (which is incorrect
2. Picture two I'm using the standard slicer and selecting May 2017 which returns the correct value of 2.5 days
The original issue is still reproducible in version 1.3.1, here is the scenario:
1) Select a couple of days in the timeline slicer.
2) Click/double click on a column in the Stacked Column Chart/Clustered Column Chart
Result: the couple of days selection is now turned into all days selection in the timeline slicer, even if I remove interactions between these visuals
This is really bothering some business people I communicate with and it would be wonderfull if a fix can be provided for this ASAP.
Let me know if you need any help with reproducing this.
Hi, I am using this latest Timeline slicer (Timeline1.3.1.pbiviz) in a report with Other Slicers and each time I change selection on the other slicers the Timeline is resetting to full range again. This is only a recent problem for me, and downloading the latest Timeline has not fixed the problem. The timeline slicer is not interactively linked and should hold the date range I have piced. Thanks for your help
