Skewed production day (4:00 - 03:59) as default value for date filter

Hi all,

We have some dashboards that are used for operational reporting in our warehouses. In the warehouse, a production day starts at 04:00h and ends at 4:00h (instead of a regular day starting and ending at 00:00h).

Most of our dashboards have a "(production) date filter", that defaults to the current day.


Problem we have, is that the default current day, switches to the next day at 00:00. Functionally this means, that the dashboards does not show "today's" production data anymore after 00:00 (as this technically now has become yesterday).

We therefore like to set a default date, that switches to the "next" day at 04:00.


- when current hour between 04:00 and 00:00, return current day

- when current hour between 00:00 and 04:00, return current day -1.

Would this be possible to achieve in Yellowfin?


Best regards,
