Is there a way to always display the last part of the scroll bar?

Good day, I would like visualizations that have scroll bar to be able to start the display in the last part of the range and not at the beginning. But always the user has to scroll the bar to see the latest information. Clarification, I do not look for the visualization to be ordered in a way of increasing in terms of the date, but to be increasing.

I have NOT found a way to achieve what I describe.

Thank you

Unfortunately, Power BI does not provide a built-in option to set the starting position of a scrollbar in a visualization. However, there are a few workarounds that you can try to achieve your desired result.

One option is to use a measure or calculated column to reverse the order of the data points on your axis. This can be done by creating a measure that subtracts the maximum value of your axis from the current value. Then, you can use this measure as the basis for your visualization, and the data will appear in reverse order.

Another option is to use a custom visual that provides more control over the scrollbar behavior. There are several custom visuals available in the Power BI marketplace that offer advanced scrolling options, such as the Timeline Slicer or the Power KPI Matrix. These may be worth exploring if you need more precise control over your visualization's scrolling behavior.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi @adelporto 

 

I'm afraid this is not supported currently. If you don't want to change the displayed date order, you can consider setting a TOPN filter or relative date filter on the visual to show the latest N records. Add a button and bookmark to clear this filter or train your report users to clear the filter on the visual when they want to see older records beyond the current filter range.
