What type of changes are you planning to make?  The file format is not documented and liable to change at any time.

Hi @lbendlin
The scenario is like this, In the report having a Slider slicer that is like the start date is 2019/01/01 and the end date is 2024/12/31, I want to change the dates in a layout file like start 2023/01/01 and the end date is today's date. 





You should be able to use a preset filter for that, like this




Hi @lbendlin ,


I tried with your solution but it is not working, In that slider has the 3yrs past data and 1yr forecast data and when I open that page it should only display starting of that month(the present month that is 01 January 2023)  and end date is today's date like below i mentioned the image.
