The default time slice refers to the time slice that is used when a user has not navigated into a specific time slice.

It is very common to set the default time slice to All Time so that content doesn't disappear at the end of a month, quarter, or other interval. Traction beginners often find this more intuitive.

Note: This preference used to be set on a per project basis. As of version 3.7, this is a user preference.
