I've seen an old message on this topic, but I'm writing to see if there have been developments since (or any work-arounds) to getting "current user" to work in dashboards.
I love the new charts, and formulas for presenting summary information. However, for our organisation the real game-changer will be when a dashboard can show all of the tasks (from multiple project sheets), actions, risks and issues (from multiple other sheets) associated with the current user in one place. This dashboard then would become the "home sheet" for every project manager and other stakeholders associated with each of our programmes.
It seems that dashboards current set the current user as the person who created the dashboard - I really can't see why it would be designed this way, and it should be a straight-forward fix.
Has anyone found a way to do this? Is the ability to do this on the development team's work plan?
