Using the relative date slicer if I say Last X days, it always shows yesterday and back not today.
If I use last week or month it shows TODAY and back.
What is the intended usage here? I thought Last x days would be starting at today and going back, but that does not seem to be the case?
Also when using the range slicer in weeks/Months - when you say last 2 months, you might want it to include this current month. how can this be done? when clicking on "Include today" nothing is changed.
There is a question with regards to which Months you use from the drop down.
If you use the "Months" this will be from your current day going back 2 months as shown below. It will always be for the current date.
If you then use the "Months (Calendar)" this will use Full Calendar Months, and will start from the previous full month. So because June is still current, the previous full start month is May and then go back 2 months, as you can see below.
So I would suggest using the filter that applies for what you are trying to show.
Dear @GilbertQ - sounds good. thanks a lot.
My original intention was to enable the query - from the beggining of last month till today. But non of these options enables that.
If you want to do this from the Query Editor you can do this by creating parameters and then populating the parameters with the start of the current month and another parameter until the end of the month.
What I have done in the past is I have put my variables into the M code, so that it is easier for me to use for my dataset.
Thanks, I tried that...but still no good.
It still shows 6/6/2017 instead of today which is 6/7/2017.
What is odd though is if I use week, it works fine and shows 6/7/2017.
Doesn't matter for the day if I toggle that "Include Today" toggle or not... 😞
Hi there, the only thing that I can think of that would make it work this way was if it was using the Power BI Servers Date and Time (UTC) And if you were based in a different timezone then due to the servers time it is not yet technically today?
I checked that, all the other dates match up just fine (like when I have a last refreshed date in a column that I use defined as =NOW() ).
So, and maybe I am wrong, but I would think that time would come back different but it matches my timezone.
