show data in dashboard for current month

Hello,

 

I would like to create a dashboard where the tiles get refreshed dynamically. As in if the item pinned on dashboard is from October month, when it is November, the dashboard should dynamically change to reflect November month data. How can I achieve this? 

 

Thanks,

Deeptha

Re: show data in dashboard for current month

Hi @Anonymous, another option would be is to create a Period Slicer, and this slicer would have a value which would be for the current month.

 

So if you refreshed your data daily, it would get today's date, and then apply the Current Month Slicer, so that as it moved over time, it would always select the current month?

 

You could realistically create a slicer for any period that would dynamically change.

HI @Anonymous

 

just use month to date (MTD) measures.

Just pin the visual with this metric to your dashboard.
