Hi, 

 

I have a date column app_date formatted as a date dd/mm/yyyy however, I can't do anything with it as its not a date hierarchy. Any idea why please or how to change my date to have this option?

Hi  @M_SBS_6 ,

 

You can check if the "Auto data/time" option is turned on by following the steps below. If it is not turned on, then tick the box and reopen Power BI Desktop.

Refer to:

Auto date/time in Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

Please take a quick glance at newly created dashboards : Restaurant Management Dashboard , HR Analytics Report , Hotel Management Report, Sales Analysis Report , Fortune 500 Companies Analysis , Revenue Tracking Dashboard

It's already set as a date and that's why I can't work out why it won't allow a hierarchy 

@M_SBS_6  If you join this Date column with another table's Date column so hierarchy will not be there.

It's not joined to a date table either. I'm baffled by this.
