The timeline custom visual is great, but
Had the same problem. Whant to show only realtime data comming from Azure Event Hub via Stream Analytics to Power BI. The timeline show all data that comes in, but I whant only see the data from the last 2 hours. How can I do this? I'm not using the Desktop version, only the web app. And theres no option to use the filter settings from an report, because you can set only a fix date.
To be honest I found the timeline visual to be quite poor, and it didn't pass any of my QA tests. A few points:
Visual level filters don't work for me in either Power BI Desktop or Web versions. When I drag a column name over the 'Drag data fields here' box, the box outline lights up yellow, but the column name doesn't stick. It's possible to set the Page level filter, but that doesn't affect the range in the visual.
Has anyone been able to make the Visual level filter work?
Agree with your comments....it's a shame as in concept it's a great visual (in pratical terms) but needs more work to make it fit with others already available.
Filter resets after clicking on another visual.
Clunky in operation.
Hope improvements are made soon.
Other issue I found is related to the dates selected.
I think that when we select a month the filter will work for the period selectd, for example If I select April 2016 the filter should select from the 1 st of April until the last day of april, but in reality the filter works from the 1st day of the month until the first day of the month that follow the selection (inclusive)...
That should be an error!!!
