Mthly dashboard in Qlik sense

2 queries for my Qlik Sense App:

1/ I want to create a dashboard for my app, that contains kpi's that default to the latest full month for various measurements.  so I need both the data measure expression and the title to have code that calculates for example Jun-15 as the MMM-YY from 1st July until 31st July - then on 1st Aug it will change to Jul-15 for measure calc and title, etc, etc...

can I use set analysis for this? 

Note that I have other pages in the app where the MMM-YY are variable as per filter pane selection for users, but I want any selections here kept independent from the dashboard.

2/ The data is linked to an database that includes a date record field (DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm TT) that also needs a daily incremental load (appended with new records only) added into load script.   Is there standard template code avail to do this?

Attach some sample file and let us know your required output.

1/ I have cut the App right back to 1 x KPI and limited data from an excel file, but essentially I want the expression calculation and tittle for the KPI to be automated to stay as May 2015 for example until the 1st July – but then display June 2015 until 1st August etc….. (i.e. always showing the previous full months result). However with any other pages I create I want them to be user selected.

2/ I can link to a database directly and get these same columns – when I do this I want to be able to get a daily incremental load with any new rows added.
