This other thread may help: https://community.tableau.com/message/800193. Parameters by default are static and save the value selected when published to Tableau Server. But with the release of 2018.2, you can now use dashboard extensions that can help with it: https://extensiongallery.tableau.com/products/26
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your response. Looks like Dynamic Parameter Extension's moment.js expression" () - Current day" option will pick Tableau Server Current Date (Which is EST). In my situation , Date Field has UTC dates. I would like to pick Max(Date) by default for the Date Parameter.
Is there anyway, we can achieve this functionality?
I have another question, Do we have any workaround to show single calendar display for normal Date Filters and by default calendar always pick Max(Date) ?
I would really appreciate your help on this.
In regards to the extension time zone, that's something I didn't realize. I suggest reaching out to the creator of the extension directly.
I don't know of another way to show a calendar that has the last date selected, that is not a parameter. You can use the 'latest date preset' to pick a max date, but that will display a list of options on the filter, not a calendar. See more here: Filter Data from Your Views
Thank you Santiago for your inputs. How can I reach creator of the extension ? Please advise.
