          It's pretty hard to give a proper answer without knowing the data set & the data type you have there. Attaching the workbook would help seeing clearer

          However if your date field is a date type in Tableau (little calendar icon ) which contains all the date (past and future) of your data set. Then you can create a calculated field based on the date field that would look like that:

          IF DATEDIFF('month',[Your Date field],TODAY())=0 then 'Current month'

          else 'Other period'



          Have a try with that first and see if it works
