I've scoured the internet looking for a solution, and found a lot of people with the same issue. It seems so obvious, when designing a reporting tool, that you would include the option to set default dates for your slicers. How exactly did this get over-looked?

Every day people are using Power BI to make critical business decisions, and every day thousands of people make the wrong decisions because they forgot to change the slicer date.... because there's no way to change the default slicer date.

Sure... there's relative date filtering, which can be set to show "today's" data... but what if the data doesn't update every day?.... Now we have blank data on our reports.

Please.... please... please fix this basic request. Just add an option to have the slicer default to the most current date... it's not complicated.
