How to set the Primary Date Range for a Datablock

The Primary Date Range is the Date Range that a Datablock will load to when the Databoard is first opened.


What to consider when setting the Primary Date Range

In order to allow for easy analysis, it's imperative to pay attention to the Primary Date Range set on your Datablocks. It's recommended that the Primary Date Range is uniform throughout all Datablocks on the Databoard and, even better, is uniform throughout all Databoards in a Carousel. This will help to ensure you're creating streamlined, clean, and easy-to-interpret reports.  

You'll also want to consider any Scheduled Snapshots that you plan to set for the Databoard as you set the Primary Date Range. Scheduled Snapshots are not dynamic, so you can't switch between Date Ranges on the Databoard. For that reason, it's important that the Primary Date Range works with the Scheduled Snapshot frequency to deliver the reports you want.
