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!

Please add the Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration; this would functionality would be a huge win for department heads to increase their use of PowerBI.

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

filter based on a DAX formula would be good

Please add the ability to select the value of a slicer filter based on a DAX formula.

RE: Default Selected Slicer or Tile-By Value Configuration

This is basic feature. I'm baffled, cannot imagine how the creators not think of it.
