SAC - Find and display Last Date from a Date Dimension as Numeric Point Chart

Hi All,

I would like to show how recent the data is in a Story, dynamically. My first attempt was to try to convert Date to a Measure, and using the LAST function of the measure. In the SAC Trial version, only attributes of Date, but not Date itself may be converted to a measure. (All the attrbuttes of Date can be converted!)

Any suggestions?

    Hi John,

    Great question. I would expect that you could create a calculated dimension and display this in a text widget but that is not the case. The only workaround I can think of is that you create a dimension in your data source with the last date and display this in a text widget.

    Perhaps a good idea to create an improvement request and share here to collect some votes!

    Kind regards,
