Relative date filtering

I have a list of elements with a planned end date and I would like to do a relative filtering of the date in the visualization to only show those whose end date is greater than or equal to 6 months ago and those that have a date in the future, I am using a slicer with relative date style, but it only allows me to see those of the last x months, those of the next months or those of the current month, I do not see an option that allows me to do what I want to show from a relative date in forward including those of the future, do you have any idea how I could do it?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @monicajsv possible solution as following

If you need measure then it could be like:

Measure test=
CALCULATE (

SUM(Yourtable[somecolumn]),

DATESINPERIOD (
        'Date'[Date],           -- Your Date key column
        TODAY(),                -- Today
        -6,                      -- the set needs to contain 6
        MONTH                   -- months
    )
)
 
DAX function DATESINPERIOD

Hello,

I don't need a measure, I just want to be able to filter them.

Thanks for your help, I think I'll use a colum to calculate if the date is within the relative period I need and the use this column to filter.

HI @monicajsv,

Maybe you can try to add a calculated column to compare with current date and table date to map records with period tags. Then you can use this field on filter to filter your visual records based on period tags.

What I would like to have is a behaviour like the "After" Slicer style, but with tthe "after" date always showing today minus 6 months automatically

Hi @monicajsv seems possible (without lot of effors 🙂).

I would like to see example from your side and expected output so we do not spend time guessing what is request.

What I would like to to is configure the date to be always today minus 6 months to always have a list of the deliverables with baseline delivery date from 6 months ago onwards
