Why does the Date Range "Last x Days" differ depending on the visualization?

You may notice that the specified dates for Date Ranges like "Last 7 Days," "Last 30 Days," etc. differ depending on the visualization. 

For example, your Datablocks may look like this...

... with one Datablock showing a Date Range a day longer than the other. This is due to the visualization selected. 

Chart visualizations (Line Charts and Bar Charts) include "Today" in "Last x Days" Date Ranges. Therefore, the dates specified for Charts represents an additional day (i.e., 8 days for "Last 7 Days" Date Range, 31 days for "Last 30 Days" Date Range, etc.). The dotted line on the Line Chart represents the current day's incomplete set of data.

The number at the top of the Chart represents the Date Range without "Today" included (i.e., 7 days for "Last 7 Days" Date Range, 30 days for "Last 30 Days" Date Range, etc.). 

All other visualizations (Number blocks, Progress Bars, etc.) do not include "Today" in "Last x Days" Date Ranges. Therefore, the dates specified represent the expected number of days (i.e., 7 days for "Last 7 Days" Date Range, 30 days for "Last 30 Days" Date Range,etc.). 

Once custom Date Ranges are available in Databox, you will be able to set the start and end date for all visualizations. Learn more about custom Date Ranges here
