Using relative date filters in Tableau dashboards are a great way to keep your dashboard up-to-date with minimal effort. They also provide the consumer with great control if you display the relative date filter as a quick filter on the dashboard, since they enable extensive customization to the time period displayed.
In this dashboard, the current and prior year are displayed. By interacting with the quick filter, you could easily adjust this to one year, two quarters or even two months of data. Give it a try.
