Hierarchy date in Pivot Tables Excel (Power BI Publisher or Analyze in Excel)

Hi,

 

I have no problem with creating hierarchies in .pbix (direct query).

 

But when I use a connection through an excel (Power BI Publisher or Analyze in Excel), I do not see the hierarchies I created.
Using a simple  field "date" is not convenient for applying the filter when building a pivot table (I see all dates for all the years)

 

I'm looking for a solution to create a convenient hierarchy date filter for the pivot table in Excel that is connected to powerbi.com

 

Thanks for the help and ideas

@BI2B,

This could be a limitation of DirectQuery, when I use Import mode to connect to the data source and use "Analyze in Excel", hierarchies are available in Excel.
