My dashboard needs to default to yesterday’s date. I saw a hit on creating a parameter and the yesterday works. But I notice the date list does not update properly. Example: I created the list on 9/24. So I have all of Sept up to 9/24. The report did pull in 10/2 today but when I got to change the date the list is still only as high at 9/24. There should be dates from 9/25 to 10/2 showing. I am not seeing that. Is there a better way to default to yesterday and still have an up to date list of dates so I can select other days.
A simpler approach (if you can afford it with your dashboards & data)
would be using a Discrete Filter on Date with this option enabled:
Filter to latest date value when workbook is opened
Hope it could help a bit.
