Date Hierarchy in PowerBI Datamart

I'm bringing in about 10 PowerBI Dataflows into a new Datamart (using premium per user). I've noticed that the date hierarchy is  not available when accessing the Datamart as a datasource in Desktop or in the Service. Does anyone know why this would be happening? How would I create a date column to allow hierarchy once in the Datamart?

Hi @Jkneblik ,

 

We need to be aware here regarding the date hierarchy.In Power BI Desktop, you select File > Options and settings > Options, and then select either the Global or Current File page. On either page, the option exists in the Time intelligence section.

  • Enable automatic date and time
  • The table storage mode is Import
  • The column data type is date or date/time
  • The column isn't the "many" side of a model relationship

When the above conditions are met, the date hierarchy will work for you.

 

Best Regards,

Caitlyn Yan
