Option for User to give range of date in compose tab other than what Preview provides

Hi ,

User wants to select a range for date in which the data should be displayed and he wants to do everything in the compose tab. Other than the preview mode option. I am looking forward to provide input control so that he can select range of values in which he can see the data, but I cannot find this kind of functionality in compose tab. Any options or suggestions by which i can ?

Thanks,

Shanky

    Compose tab is for building a story; not sure why the user wants to filter there? What is the business reason behind that?

    A possible workaround you could create a date/time hierarchy based on your date dimension/field. You can then add input controls for Year, Quarter, Month, Day on your page in the compose tab. Each input control will allow you to select multiple options.

    As an example, if you want the charts on your page to show values for the date range 'Jan 1st 2009' to 'June 30th 2009', you can set Input Control Year=2009 and Input Control Quarter=Q1,Q2
