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!

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

Being New to power BI, I am finding a number of things really difficult in comparison with Reporting Services. The Defaulting an entry from a list is one of the features that I am really missing, as we used to use it heavily for automation. Please add this as a feature Thanks

Hi Guys,

Do you have plans to develop it?
It would be really appreciated as now we have to change the slicer each time.
The report was saved with "!" one, bus with row level security do not allow some users to see "1" - they should see only "2". When this option is implemented we can indicate with DAX what should be the one selected by default.

Thanks,
Regards,
Szymon

It would be great, If Power BI can consider option to have a DAX expression to set the from and to date of date slicer. This way the date slicer's default range is dynamic and user experience is better than relative filter.

Default dates need to be as dynamic as selecting the dates themselves. The ability to set a start date of X now/days/weeks/months/years in the past, and an end date of Y now/days/weeks/months/years in the future.
"Sticky filters" is a terrible option as you cannot set for re-occurance, or rolling date range factor.

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

Similar to other comments, I really need the ability to set a slicer to a default value with DAX when the report refreshes.

Hi Team. I agree. This would significantly improve the usability of our reports to the end users. Is there an update on this?

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

It will be great if we can have a search button on slicers and selects all of them which is filtered using search button as in Excel Filter. Currently the search button is on top of the filter and nothing has been selected based on it. We need to select them one by one after it is filtered.
