## How to make slicer automatically select Current, previous and next weeks?

Hello, I have a duplicated Timestamp column that is transformed to Week of Year. I use that column as a slicer. Because I need to make a custom URL I want to set up the Week column inside Power Bi to show only current week, previous week and next week. How can I do that?

Based on your description, I have created a simple sample:

Then apply the measure to the slicer's filter:

``````Measure =
var _a = WEEKNUM(TODAY(),2)
return IF(MAX('Table'[Week of Year])>=_a-1&&MAX('Table'[Week of Year])<=_a+1,1,0)``````

Final output:

Hello @v-jianboli-msft

EDIT:Bottom.

Thank you a lot for this!

There is something which is confusing me quite a lot. I made it work with -2 instead of -1 which is really strange. If I let it as -1 then it does not show week 47 for some reason. Do you have an idea why this might be the case? I suppose it might be due to different start of week count, but for me it is week 48 now and I only saw 48 and 49, but with same settings you saw 48, 49 and 50.

Also, once I added the Measure to the Slicer I had to add it to the visuals as well, or they would continue to show all data.

Slicer filter:

EDIT: I had to reload everything and now I get a different result. I see week 50 as well. I guess this is because PowerBI counts the weeks with 1 forward from what we expect as a result. I will just adjust the + and - in the Measure.
