Quick toggle to exclude "Today"
In a report set for "last 7 days", Domo will automatically include the current date if your dataset has rows representing that date. I have many datasets with rows for the future, where the data isn't filled in yet.
In order to get today's date to be suppressed in the report, I have to write a Beast Mode:
case when `Date Of Contact` = CURRENT_DATE() then 'Today' else 'No' end
and then filter my card for 'No'
It would be extremely helpful if "Include Today?" was part of the date settings - even just a checkbox here:
With the beast mode referenced above, my card does this (today is June 4):
Without it, I get a column for June 4, with no data (it will be reported tomorrow):
What I wanted for this report when I set it for last 7 days, would be 7 columns where the first is YESTERDAY, and the last is last Friday (again it's June 4, so 7 days ago not including today is May 28).
If I want to see my data going back to May 28, I actually have to build the for last 8 days, and set my beast mode to exclude today. Which could confuse a user who sees "Last 8 Days" in the header, but sees 7 date columns, not 8.
Can we have a toggle to include/exclude today so we don't have to write date dimension logic in our beast modes and data flows?
