Report always showing last 30 days (relative filters)

A lot times users want to create a dashboard and schedule an email to be sent each day with the PDF attached. The goal is to send this report on the 1st of every month and have it show the results for the last 30 days. You can set the date field the last 30 days but when email scheduled it for once a day to show the last 30 days it doesn’t work.

As an example, if you are using dashboard filter widget, we have “Relative Date” option that you can use to always show the last 31 Days


This works irrespective of whether the dashboard is viewed in the browser or emailed as PDF. The system will evaluate the anchor date on the scheduled time or day being viewed and will update the rendering of the filter & visuals accordingly.
