How to set default selection on Column Chart



Is there a way to have a value on a Column Chart (or any non-slicer visual) selected by defualt?  I also have a relative date slicer in use - not sure if that matters.




Thank you!

...add me to the list of people in need of default selections. I can't figure out a workaround, more than two years later.

Hi there,


even after all this time, this one is relevant to me.

Did any of you find a working solution for this?



unfortunately no.

Too bad. Thanks for your reply anyway!

@sd_kevinHi sd_kevin, did you find a solution? I would like it too 🙂

I'm so sorry, not sure how I never saw this question until now (two years later). Unfortunately, no solution that I am aware of.

Hi @sd_kevin

Which column do you want to select by default?


You could read through this thread which discussed about setting a bar chart to a default selection.

If you have any problem, please let me know.


Best Regards

Thank you Maggie.  I've read through the post before, but I don't think it addresses what I am looking for.  To answer your question, I would like the latest month to have a default selection.  In the image that would be 2018 December.  From there the user can unselect that or select another month.


Does that make sense?


Thank you,
