i currently work with dashboard designer and have a one question. 
is it possible in dashboard designer to set a today's day as default value by this Widget (Date Picker) see an attachment. 

When i open the Dashboard designer i want to see the datas on the Chart from todays date and today's date should be also displayed instead "Select date" (yellow marked). 

Could you give me some hint how I can solve this problem because in the dokumentation I didnt find the solution.

Hi Aleks, 

Yes, it is possible in dashboard designer to set  today's date as default value in Datepicker. Please follow the below steps to achieve this. 
Step 1:  Select “Range” type in the property window of Datepicker. 
Step 2: Select “Relative Dates..” from the dropdown list of settings. 
Step 3: Select “Days” option then “Today” option as highlighted in the below screenshot and click on “Add” button to add this in the relative date option. 
Step 4: You can see the added relative dates in date picker as in the below image. Select “Today “ option as highlighted in the below image to set today’s date as default. 
Output: Now preview the dashboard. By default, it will render the data of  today’s date. 
To know more about Relative date configuration, click on the link.
