no longer able to change from basic filter to advanced filter to relative date filter in service

Hi,

I believe this used to work (but I have no proof)... current state is that the end user in the Power BI service can no longer change the type of Date filter. While in desktop, you can change from Advanced Filtering to Basic Filtering to Relative Date Filtering. When that same report is published to the service, the user can no longer change - and must use whatever was active when the report was published. This creates a HUGE problem for our end users - we have the default set to Relative Date Filtering (and shows the previous 30 days) but many of our end users want to view an exact time frame. Can anyone offer help?

Re: no longer able to change from basic filter to advanced filter to relative date filter in service

Hai,

 

Just saw this on another part of the forum, with thanks to boujin :

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/Not-able-to-change-date-filter-type-on-Power-BI-service/idi-...

 

The important part:

---- From Power Bi Suport ----

 

We have received an update from the product team and they have identified this as a known issue.

 

They have found a workaround for this issue and also provided an ETA for the fix to be rolled out.


Workaround:
There are two options to workaround this issue. Option 1: Users can edit the report in the service and in that mode switch between basic and advanced filtering on the filter Option 2: Users can add both types of filters (basic and advanced) for the filters they desire to have both basic and advanced functionality in desktop to the report. Then republish this report to the service

Fix Status:
Fix is planned in April release train which is planned to be deployed in production in all clusters by 4/8.

Re: no longer able to change from basic filter to advanced filter to relative date filter in service

Hi @idahoskigirl ,

I can't reproduce your issue, I can switch different date filter modes on power bi service side.

Is there any particular settings you enabled?

Example: 'don't allow end user to save filter on power bi service side' option

Re: no longer able to change from basic filter to advanced filter to relative date filter in service

We're having the same problem. There's another post on this as well:

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Advanced-Filtering-option-disappeared-in-Filter-Pane/td-p/6...

 

I wonder if it has anything to do with the new filter option (preview in update feb 2019).
