Setting up Date Parameters

This feels fairly straightforward, but I’ve created both a start date and end date parameter, yet when adding to controls, this does nothing. Can someone provide me a simple step-by-step guide to setting up Start and End date parameters for a dashboard?

Thanks in advance!

Are you trying to use the parameters to filter your data? The control is just a way for your reader to set the parameter value. You still need to pass the parameter value to a filter.

After you add your controls, create a filter using your date field and select “Use parameters”. Then select your start date and end date parameters.

Yes, I am hoping to use parameters to allow users of the dashboard to filter data by the date ranges they need insights for. I very much appreciate your shared insight, as that was exactly what was needed in order for me to activate the filters. Much appreciated, David!
