Date filter

Hi,

I have a custom calendar data. Week number and Month starting/end date is different. But i have the Date field which is linked to week number and month based on my calendar.

I want to apply the default filter where I can get last week Sunday's date on the Date field when I open the app on any day during the current week.

Is there a function to apply on the filter to get the last week Sunday's Date on the Date field?

P.S. I will be having the Dates from 2020 to Dec 2021 on my Dashboard

Attached is my calendar

The WeekStart() function will give you the Sunday date previous to the date supplied as a parameter.

So, WeekStart(Today()) will give you 3/21/2021.  WeekStart(Today()-7) will give you 3/14/2021.  (Note: Today is 3/23/2021)

You can setup a Sheet Action in the Sheet Properties panel of your default sheet bookmark.  Select Add Action, and choose "Select values in field" and enter WeekStart(Today()) or WeekStart(Today()-7), depending on which Sunday you are referring to.

Thank you Gary for the solution. Is it possible to sort the Week Number filter and Month filter values in an ascending order- Like W01 2020- WK52 2020 and then W01 2021- WK52 2021 and the same goes for Month(Like Jan 2020- Dec 2020, Jan 2021-Dec 2021. 

I have attached the Calendar file already which has this information.
