Change the Default Date Range in your Looker Studio Report

This article is about modifying the Default Date Range of a Looker Studio report generated using the Looker Studio Linking API with Analytics Canvas.

The default date ranges were designed to cover a wide range.  If your dataset is narrower, changing the default range allows your charts and visuals to appear with more relevant data or a more relevant range. 

This article relates to the Universal Analytics Backup Utility offered by Analytics Canvas. 

Steps to Change the Default Date Range

With Editor access to a Looker Studio report, follow the steps outlined below. 

Steps:

  1. Go to File > Report Settings
  2. In the Properties menu on the left side, go down to the Default date range section.  Change this from Custom to Auto to use Poker Studio defaults, or set to Custom, then click the date range to modify it.

Modifying the default date range at the report level will affect any components that have a date range set to Auto.
