Google Analytics - auto open in 'this month'

Every day I open AdWords and GA - one has a useful time-saving feature, the other doesn't:

AdWords opens in 'This month' mode - I'm sure it could open in this week or today as well, but that's not the point - it opens to give me a useful time frame to view.

Other Analytics packages manage to do the same.

I'd love for GA to open in a this month mode and automatically compare to the previous year (for the same number of days ie the month so far).

I suspect I'm not the only person to desire such a time-saver... I understand GA's free but that shouldn't stop you making it better.

If you install the Da Vinci Tools Chrome extension, it should bring you back to the exact report where you left the last time, including all options. I will text this specific case and if it doesn't work I will fix it in an upcoming release.
