Dates in Dashboard Titles


Is it possible to create a title for the Dashboard that could automatically update to the current week dates, and previous week dates?

For example, I have a dashboard that reports metrics from the current reporting week, and the previous reporting week. But the reporting weeks are one week behind real-time. To prevent confusion I would like to title the sections "Current Reporting Week (X/XX/XX- X/XX/XX)" and have the dates change each week automatically.

Is that possible?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi @Sarah Shafer

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Yes, if you use the Metrics Widget instead. You could add a formula in the Sheet Summary and reference that in the Metrics Widget.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    I see how that would work. I do know how to use metrics, I am not sure what the formula would look like in the summary functions. I am new to smarthseet so any additional assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Not dates but gets your message across

    =("Today is Week " + WEEKNUMBER(TODAY()) + " : Currently Reporting for Week = " + ((WEEKNUMBER(TODAY()) - 1)))
