Zoom Slider with Date Hierarchy

Hello,

 

I have a stacked bar chart with the date field on the x axis and the payment amount on the y axis. Given the time period being shown on the chart, I need to do the following:

1. Add a zoom slider on the x axis.

2. Show/Bin the time as Month-Year. 

 

When I use add the date as a date heirarchy on the x axis, the x-axis zoom slider is not available. I can only see it if I add the date field as the date field - which plots the visual by the actual date in the column and I need it combined/grouped by month.

Does anyone know how I could add the zoom slider and also group the data by month? 

 

Thank you!

Hi , @newpbiuser01 

The Zoom Slicer visual requires a numeric field to work properly.

For your need i  think we can create a calendar Date table as a dimension, and we can create a calculated column like this:

Column 2 = EOMONTH([Date],-1)+1

Then we put this column as the X-axis:

Hi!

 

I have a similar problem but on x-axis instead of just date I have datetime, how can i get a zoom slider for x-axis in this case?
