Default Variable at Startup




Is there a way to default a value for a variable when a dashboard is opened?

At the moment, my dashboard allows users to filter their metrics between 2 activities that are stored in separate variables “from” and “to”. I want to default the “from” and “to” variables when the dashboard is opened so that it is looking at the KPIs between activities “Create Purchase Requisition Item” and “Create Purchase Order Item”.


Dear Alex,

You could set the variable while being in edit mode and then publish the analysis. Then this variable will always be the default variable which is set whenever you open the analysis.

Best regards,



This works well. Thanks, Viana!
