Remove start date from a visual filter

Hi power Bi community


I have a report that only requires the user to change the last date and never the first date. It looks like this.

remove visual effect of startdate.png

But my customer don't want to see the top filter they cannot interact with as it confuses them. I tried to hide it with a rectangle of the same colors that I placed above it. But you can still the both date filters when you press the filter in the top.

Any ideas on how I can hide it better? All sugestions are welcome.

It still looks weird. 


And even after I have grouped the the slicer and the shape I still see the date filter I try to hide when I double click on the slicer.
So it is an improvement, but I would still like a better solution.
