timeline slicer missing today when all dates selected

I've just noticed this issue, not sure how long it has been present:

When I select a range (including today), other than the entire range of dates, data for today is included in the output.

But when the slicer includes the entire range then today's data is excluded:

Initially I thought maybe there is too much data for the slicer to deal with (it's only 12k rows) but I removed all rows except the current month (down to 191 rows) but the problem still exists.


I don't understand why this is happening but maybe I've configured my project incorrectly. I have a Calendar table and have created a date column in my data table to link my calendar table to.

 I've put a copy of my sample data here, it'll only be available for 30 days from this post however. Note the names are randomly generated.




Version: 2.49.4831.521 64-bit (August 2017)




All visual packages are loaded from CDN directly, even if you import package manually.

It means that your Desktop app uses the latest version of the visual, even if Office Store displays the previous one.

Great, thanks for that info Herbert @v-haibl-msft.


And I have just noticed that it is fixed in the Desktop model but the Service still has the issue - I guess the visual in the service has not been updated yet.

Hi @KarlinOz,


As I tried today, it works fine. Could you please check it out?timeline slicer missing today when all dates selected3.jpg
