Relative Data Slicer using Variable


We have a relative date slicer for months. When we present our visual we use a large touch screen board. I am trying to find a way to add a radio button, drop down, or some other functionality to the relative date. I want the user to be able to select 1,2,3,6, or 12 months instead of typing it in the field (populated with 1 in the iamge below). After much digging online I have not found anything that works.


Is this possible, if so how do you do it?

Hi @danhalloween - this would not be possible with the core slicer. You can either create an idea for it to be considered for development, or the only other way would be to develop a custom slicer visual that mimics the behaviour of this one, albeit with a drop-down value where you would like it (although this is a time and effort expensive option).
