Dynamic date range



We have a report that shows yesterday's result, and the quarter-to-yesterday result. I've created two date slicers and have "tagged" the relevant tables where it should show yesterday's result, and another table showing quarter to yesterday's result.



Is it possible for the quarter-to-date to change automatically based on today's date? Meaning if today is 26-Feb-21, end date would be 25-Feb-21, and then the following day 27-Feb-21, date range would automatically change to 26-Feb-21?

@dominicjake , There is no option to initialize a slicer like that. Please log or vote for an idea


What we end if doing is create a flag for a duration and select that.

Refer to my video for example

Thank you @amitchandak ! Bummed to find out that it's not possible at the moment. Our old BI, Datorama was able to do that dynamic date range.
