Single day date slicer

Hello

 

Is there a way to filter information using only one date argument?

 

Like using a normal date slicer but with only one date picker.

 

I used relative day filtering and works well, i just want that my report is more user-friendly

I see you with the same reply across multiple posts asking for a single date picker from a calendar visual. The point is doing this should not be this hard. We shouldn't have to go through so many steps just to come up with a slicer. Thats spending a lot of time and energy just to configure a slicer instead of reporting items.

I agree that it would be good if it is offered out of the box. Since this is not yet the case, it does not mean that there is not a way to the solution or no answer to the initial question.

It's not really a solution. It's a workaround.

Correct, and this is how it is described at the end of the article. Still, a way to achieve the goal, even if a native solution is of course better.

This is the biggest reason people (IT Director(s)) are moving from Power BI.  It is one of the top expected functionality items, period.   Currently this expected and demanded functionality is horded to some MS developer that is selling the Custom Made controll.  Honestly I may suggest trashing this platform as its rediculous and 90% of my development time is going twords telling all the business people that this is not avilable and MS is forcing us to use the Filter pane - and you have to use and toggle and learn and teach every user how to use the slicers / filter pane.

 

Failure 100%

Hi @isaacRLS,

 

 

If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to select a single date in date Slicer to filter other information?

 

If you have a date column, you could create a Date list Slicer and turn on the single selection in the format pane.

 

The picture below should be your expected output.

If you need additional help please share your expected output.

Hi @v-piga-msft

 

Yes that was i looking for, but I was wondering if there is a way to keep using the date picker from the calendar or maybe a custom visual.

 

I also have in mind use the between date slicer, and made a formula to automatically change the dates. i.e. if user change the start date, then copy the start date into the end date

Hi,

 

I need exactly the same behaviour: Just pickup a single day from a visual calendar... it's possible between two date with the "Between" choice. For the moment I use the "dropdown list" choice in a segment but it's not efficient and friendly when you have 3 years and more of data...

 

Rgds,
