Let’s Speak BO Webinar: Dynamic Dates in Web Intelligence

Let's Speak BO Webinar: Dynamic Dates in Web Intelligence on February 1st 2021

Back to Let’s Speak BO Webinars

February 1st, 2022 at 10AM PT/11AM AZ/1PM ET

A common use case is to run a Web Intelligence report for a date range. That can be easily done with hard-coded date values, but that is not a very user-friendly approach always having to edit the query. Certainly prompts are more user-friendly. However, if you want to schedule a report for a dynamic, named date range such as yesterday, last month, last quarter, etc. you are at a dead-end.

This session will show how I built what I call a “Calendar Universe” a number of years ago that has stood the test of time. We will cover various ways to use dynamic dates talking about the pros and cons of each including the “Calendar Universe”.
