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!

It would be helpful if there is a setting to Default date like Month-to-date, week-to-date and etc. using Date Range or Between. Currently, we have it on Relative but, hopefully we can get it using Between as well.

Sometimes its convinient to initalize single selection dropdown slicer with default value based on current dataset or current time. For examle, one may have a slicer setup to track year (..., 2018, 2019, 2020) and it is desired to have a selection in this filter on current year (from DAX NOW() fu...
