Show Date/Month in Data Studio Report

Is there a way to display a date (month/year) as a dynamic field in a Data Studio Report. Background: I am building a report for a customer, that gets updated monthly and always displays data for the previous month. To make it easier for my customer, I want to show the time range as a field in the report. 

 

Thanks for your help.

Hey Steffan,

 

Well I guess it depends on the data source and there is more than one way I suspect.  If it's sheets for example I suppose you could do something clever by just referencing a field that had the range and maybe use a table and some filled shapes to show what you want.

 

If it's google analytics, you could use a date range control...

Hi Theo, 

 

thanks for the reply. I helped myself with a table indeed. I just sort for the latest date and then display it as Month. Works like a charm.
