Can the Month on Landing Page in PowerBI.com be refreshed? (Calendar Visual by MAQ Software)

A quick question for those who use "Calendar Visual by MAQ Software".

 

I was wondering if the Month in the landing Page is changeable in PowerBI.com based on the current date.

 

I meant when a month changes (let's say Today is June-01), the Calendar Visual redirect an user to the Calendar in JUNE when accessing the Report in PowerBI.com?

 

It seems the report's landing page in PowerBI.com is based on the month when the PBI file was uploaded to the PowerBI.com.

 

Is there any way to change the landing page Month automatically based on the current date (or system date, etc), or is it not covered in the current version?

 

 

Thanks,

Thank you for the response, I understood the current functionality of the software which is from a "Developer" point of view.

 

It is helpful for sure to keep the last saved stauts in PBI file in PBI Desktop for a Report Developer, but I believe it will not be helpful at all for "ENDUSERS" which are shared the file through PBI APP (PowerBI.com) and use it.

 

This software is great and useful, but I have to do the step (open the file (PBI file) in PBI Desktop, change the display month, save it and upload it) every month for a workaround of the issue. Or endusers need to click "Today" button or move to the month he/she wants manually.

 

Hope there will be an option of "Set a current month as a Landing Page" or something like that.

 

 

Thanks,

Re: Can the Month on Landing Page in PowerBI.com be refreshed? (Calendar Visual by MAQ Software)

Hello @dkata ,

 

Currently, Calendar by MAQ Software has persistence implemented to persist the last saved state of the visual.

This is the intended feature of the visual.

 

If in case you have a question about what is persistence, then below is the explanation

– Once you are in the edit mode of your report, you will navigate around in the visual to switch the view / date. Now when you save the report, the state of the Calendar visual is persisted, so that when you re-open the report, you will see the same state at which you saved it.

 

The requested feature collides with an existing functionality.

We have added your request to our feasibility analysis backlog.

 

We will notify you on this thread when we have an update on the same.

 

Thanks.
