Timeline Slicer, possible to end at current date?

In my dashboard I use a timeline slicer in which I want to show by default the data for the past three months from today.
Is it possible to have the slicer ends dynamic on the current day when the dahsboard is opened ?



Thanks in advance.

Hi @Chimsie ,


You can try by selecting filter type Relative  visual level filtering in the filter pane. And show items values should be is in the last 3 months.

Hi @Chimsie ,


Based on your description, I suggest you use bookmarks as an alternative.

Use bookmarks to create reports and bind buttons, set different relative date filters for slicers, and jump to different reports through buttons. Then, set a button to restore the default date range for users to choose freely. 


Best Regards,

Thanks, the relative date slicer doesn't answer my question,
I don't want to limit the range of the slicer. The slicer range is 3 months in the past and 9 months in the future.
What I would like is for the slicer to be set to a range of 3 months ago and current date (like te picture),
the user then has the option to adjust the slicer 9 months in the future.
