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

Will this idea address being able to change or switch Slicer Selection based on another Slicer Selection?

Sometimes a user creates a parameter table with a slicer that lets them slice between multiple measures to change a visual. If a user creates a second slicer from another column to filter those measures -- in the example above -- between different unit conversions, the previous selection stays the same, and the visual goes blank if the user selects the second slicer. It would be great if the user could select the second slicer, and the visual and previous selection update accordingly.

Just get date slicers to automatically update to today's date, it's frustrating when a user opens a report after months away and they don't see up to date data by default.

Yes- This feature will help when we have slicer of weekending dates and user want default current weekending date when he open the report. I have been looking for this feature everywhere to implement in my report and it is real requirement for ne now and I am new to Power BI. It is good to connect here and share our ideas.

Suppose I have a year slicer in a power bi report and I want to show default value is current year that time it is helpful

By default selection in current year shows all business of the current year

Especially for publish-to-web reports which are updated every day, it would be very helpful if the date slicer would dynamically include today.

Any progress? We encounter numerous reporting scenarios that necessitate default date ranges in our slicers. Currently, the slicers are manually set to the start and end of the month, requiring a monthly update.
