Date Slicer not displaying as a calendar

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 @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.

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.
