    I don't like the Time slider feature - the scale is almost completely obscure, it's too big and cant be resized, re-positioned, formatted in any way at all, and whatever the intervals are, their number and width seem arbitrary.  I can't imagine using it for any real-world analysis task.

     

    It also seems to trigger the "spinner" (animated bars at the bottom left) to stay active continuously, which is distracting (or should I be paying attention to that?).

     

    Anyway there's already a quite functional Custom Visual that delivers the same functionality, but does it much better:

    Play Axis (Dynamic Slicer) 

     

    I suggest quietly removing this feature from the ArcGIS custom visual.  I don't see the point in the developers putting more time in just to re-invent the wheel.
