      Hello everyone, it is possible that the date today on Qlik is updated only when opening a document Qlik?

          Please check the Help for the default timer mode argument:


          today([timer_mode] )

          Returns the current date from the system clock. The timer_mode may have the following values:

          0 Date at script run
          1 Date at function call
          2 Date when the document was opened  

          Default timer_mode is 2. The timer_mode = 1 should be used with caution, since it polls the operating system every second and hence could slow down the system.


          So, if you are using timer_mode 2 (default), it is indeed only updated when you open the document.
