Power BI Blog: Date Hierarchy Updates

16 November 2023

Welcome back to this week’s edition of the Power BI blog series.  This week, we look at updates to On-object interactions regarding date hierarchies on data flyouts.


It’s short and sweet this week.  There have been some useful updates to On-object interactions – one of which concerns working with dates, a key activity for us financial modellers in Power BI.

When working with dates, you may choose to swap from a hierarchy to the “raw” date field.  This is still available when right clicking directly on the date field.  However, for greater discoverability, Microsoft has now added the ability to switch between date hierarchy and raw date on the data flyout as well:

  1. Swap using right click

             2. Swap using data flyout.


In the meantime, please remember we offer training in Power BI which you can find out more about here.  If you wish to catch up on past articles, you can find all of our past Power BI blogs here.
