More flexibility in the date options for reportlets so that the start date is fixed on a mid-month day, but the end date increments by month. I often have a need to show the metrics since a microsite is launched through the end of last month (for monthly reports). So the microsite is launched December 13, 2010. The first month I'd like to report December 13 - Decmeber 31, 2010. The second month, I'd like to report December 13, 2010 - January 31, 2011. Etc... Right now I have to go into each dashboard and increment the month by selecting Edit Date.

One way we got round this was to use the advanced delivery options -->scheduling options and set a fixed start date and rolling end date, wiht delivery frequency set to monthly.

 

That means the start date stays fixed and then every month it increments by M+1.

 

Some of our colleagues use this for daily reports for campaigns so they can see the trend over time.

Thanks for the tip, but that doesn't work if the start date is set for something other than the first of the month. Since My report starts on 4/22, the rolling date option is set to "daily" without me being able to modify it.sc-calendar.jpg
