I have used two date slicers that are used for parameter binding for direct query. I am not able to display those slicers as calendar even though they are in date format. As soon as i did parameter binding with those slicer it turned to dropdown.
Hi @v-rzhou-msft I tried the same and I am not able to use date/ datetime slicer with bind parameter.
Its an actual issue please suggest. I have followed your steps and its not working
Hi @Anonymous ,
Please make sure you add the date column or date/time column into the slicer instead of the date hierachy.
Here I create a sample with Date and Date/Time type Parameters in Power Query Editor. And turn on "Enable load".
If you turn on "Auto date/time for new file" in Option, Power BI will create a date hierachy in your data model. When you add the date or date/time column into the slicer, Power BI will add the hierachy automaticly. If you add hierachy into slicer, you could dropdown only.
I suggest you to select the column in Field.
And then if your column in date or date/time type, you will be able to use all kind of function as below.
If this post helps, then please consider Accept it as the solution to help the other members find it more quickly.
Hi, did you try to bind your date/datetime column as parameter and your date slicer still work as you mentioned? because this is not working from our way after binded as date parameter.
