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!

There seems to be nothing anyone can say to get Microsoft to take this seriously.

It would still be nice to dynamically set this, so that we could dynamically pre-filter to a User's dept...even if they have never visited the report to set up their filters

We also would like to have the current user pre-selected in a list of multiple users.

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

We need that the first row in the slicers would be the default row selected

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

This is very important feature. When this will be available?
More than 2500 votes and original idea is shared on March 02, 2015 which s quite long time. When this will be on priority ?

Please provide this feature ASAP as everyone is asking this.

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

We need this for a different purpose than dates. We take monthly snapshots of say our financial forecast and typically the latest one is the one everyone wants to look at while having the ability to switch to another snapshot if needed.
Currently there is no way to default it to the latest one or rather to the one folks care about so we have to kind of force the user to make a selection before going to the report.
Note: Latest or whatever we want to be the default to should be configurable based on logic and not necessarily the latest item in a sorted list.

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

This is a high-valued propose but seemed to be neglected by the team for 4 years. Pls seriously THINK about it.
