Allow a user to set the default value for a slicer or tile-by value on a page/dashboard, so that when the Power View page is opened for the first time, the default value is selected.
eg. If the page has a slicer for Year or Month, allow the user to configure the most recent Year or Month to be selected by default.

Update 10/20/2022 - Update from Mo - we are working on this in the new year

Thanks for everyone's votes and comments. This is a feature on our backlog; however we cannot share a timeline at the moment.

It looks like many of the requests will be addressed by the new 'Sticky filters' capability. Now when you log out of Power BI and come back to a report, the same items will be selected as when you left. For those who're looking to have a 'last month' selection, the relative date slicer might help. Those with comments about currencies where having multiple selected makes the report meaningless - the report will load with whatever selection the author saved, so if you save it with one currency selected your users will see that by default. If there are scenarios that these features don't address, please let us know in your comments - if you are really specific it'll help us build the feature to work just the way you want! Thanks again!

In desperate need of this. Without this, a lot of the slicers i have in my reports render useless. Could you please implement this!

Ideally would be able to set the default value of a filter based on another value, e.g., select year where 'Is Current Year' equals 1.

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

I'd like to ensure the default value enhancement isn't restricted to date-values, which is a common scenario. Other scenarios are selection from a list of values e.g. currency codes. If the multiple ccy codes are selected e.g. no slicer value is selected, the report is meaningless since amounts of different ccy's can't be aggregated. If a single value is selected at development time but does not exist in the dataset at runtime, the report will be blank.
We need the ability to select an initial value from a column, first, last, whatever.

Our BI Reports are now based on Power BI Desktop. This is the most urgent changerequest we need.
