Dynamic Default Bookmark with 'Always one selected value'

Is it possible to set dynamic default bookmarks with 'always one selected value' on a field?  For example, in a date field set to a variable with current fiscal period.  =DateField=$(vCurrentFiscalPeriod) works well when always one selected value is not set for field, but does not work at all when set for field using this method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFyqOigqnUw.

 

Is there a way to achieve this without using extensions?  I'd like to avoid installing 3rd party extensions without support as they may not work with upgrades.

Sadly no - you won't be able to manipulate it directly with bookmarks unless you set up alternate states and set up bookmarks for those alternate states.

Did you manage to do this with alternate states?

I have the same problem as you. I have an app where I need to have one year selected, but I also want to dynamically set the latest year by default.

I looked into alternate states, but they seem to be designed to be used for grouping up some filters with visuals, and I don't see how they can be used to solve this problem.

I went another route with this by enabling multiple selections and making charts conditional to one selected.  Not as desirable, but accomplishes the goal.

Did you ever manage to find a more decent solution for this? I am facing with the same issue.

anyone got better alternative?

It used to work for us, not 100% but after upgrade to June 2020 we don't see latest month when data is refreshed.

I have bookmark created using this expression in the filter pane -  =[Month Year]=Max({1} total [Month Year])
