Display Auto-Updating Dates on a Dashboard

Hi! I am trying to display on a dashboard the number of people signed up for a training over the next 10 days. I want the dashboard to always only look ahead 10 days from the date you're looking at the dashboard. I don't want to have to go in and update the widget on all 30 dashboards every day/week.

The data is pulling from another sheet that updates every time a person is signed up for training.

Is there a way to do this?

    Hi @Jasmine Taylor

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, andree@workbold.com)

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    Hi @Andrée Starå, I have a tracking form that people are scheduled for trainings by date. As they get signed up for the trainings I have a sheet that uses countifs (department & date) to count how many people for each department are in the training by date.

    Each department has a dashboard and I want to show them how many folks they have in each class over the next 10 days. I want the widget to automatically show the next 10 days. So if they log in today they see through 3/16 and tomorrow would be through 3/17.

    We have 30 departments and 30 dashboards. The only way i can see how to do this is to go in to each dashboard each day and change the widget to pull the dates I want. I'm trying to see if there's a way for the widget to recognize today's date then add 9 days and show every thing within that window.
