There is a Date Range Picker extension on the Qlik Branch.
But I am starting on a QlikView to QlikSense migration and the initial ethos is to do as much as possible Out Of the Box without recourse to extensios.
I have a feeling though that for a Date Picker object I may be forced down the extension route.
I would be interested to hear the views of others on this.
Also, I could probably get by with just the standard filter pane and the date items in there, as long as I could somehow default them to a month behind, is that at all possible? Basically in the sense of this
if the client hasn't selected a date
set the from date to getdate() - 1 month
set the to date = getdate()
leave it as is.
Without using an extension, there is no way to do this. This was great functionality that existed in View but unfortunately is does not exist in Sense 'out of the box'.
However, you can enter a date range in a filter pane.
This will select all dates between 1/1/2016 and 1/31/2016. Simple trick that may get you what you need.
