With a continuous date filter (Range of Dates) or a continuous measure, you can select the "Special" option and select "All Dates" or "All Values" and the slider should always default to the min and max for the data set. But be careful that if you ever change the values and then save the workbook, the value you set becomes the default. You can always drag the field back to the filter and redefine the filter as described above.
thanks for this Josh. I am using the special and all dates tab and have been running some tests to see what might be happening. I believe it may have been user error on my behalf and getting confused between times where i've changed the date range the day before and didn't revert OR published the workbook with my own date range selected as you alluded to above.
thanks for your reply though, much appreciated.
Is it possible that when the updated date will come then the slider will automatically show date range till the updated date ?
On 04/13/2013 dashboard was published and the date range slider was till the last date.
Date slider was showing : 04/01/2013----04/13/2013.
Now on 04/14/2013 data extract is refreshed in server and new date 04/14/2013 has come in date.
So,will the date slider automatically show as 04/01/2013-----04/14/2013
or have to manually reset the date from 04/13/2013 to 04/14/2013 to see the data till the updated date...?
