Hi dear members!
My objective is to Filter a "Gauge" object in a way to show a measure only for the most recent date available in the data. The filter need to be dynamic as the data will get updated every few days.
Problem is that Max operator is not available for Filtering. Do you have any idea how I can do this?
Thank you in advance!

In present versions (to 7.3) we don't have any option to get Max date (or As on date Values).., This is the most basic requirement........
The best way is that you have to Calculate Max date in your backend data.
after loading the data in VA environment put a condition (Calculated).
If date = Max date
Return (Your measure)
You will get Max date or As on date value and it is dynamic.
Hope this helps..,
Thanks & Regards,

Any update on this question? Important feature!
Work-arounds such as rank is really suboptimal

There is a new feature in 7.4 that might be helpful.
In 7.4, you can create a slider prompt with a date assigned to it, then on the Properties tab you can set Value=Single and Set value to dynamic maximum. This will dynamically select the latest value for the date data item.
Is that helpful?
