Set today's date as default for a parameter

I want to have a parameter control that always has the day’s date. I’ve tried to use now() but it only sets the date when I set this parameter up. Is there anyway to set the parameter in such way that it always has the current day’s date?

Hi Hugo. We are working on a feature that should address this. Follow the announcements section in the community to stay up to date on our latest releases: Announcements - Amazon QuickSight.

Hi @Hugo ,

You need to create a new dataset with a query to retrieve the current date, then add a parameter, I did it following this tutorial:

Data Doozers | Dynamic Date Filters with Parameters (and more) in QuickSight

It is quite convoluted but it works.

@Hugo - if you hadn’t spotted it already, I think this feature is now live
