Hi,

 

you can add a measure for todays date:  

Measure 2 = TODAY()
 
then in the text box click the value option,

enter the name of the measure and select the formatting:

Value option did not work for me. However creating the new measure 

Today = FORMAT(TODAY(),"YYYY-MM-DD"), and using that with a Card visualization did the trick.
 
@concertandy no blue line with this option.

Maybe the original solution has been superceded, but just for anyone else who may stumble across this, I found I could do it without a measure, just by using TODAY(). My data is held outside the Report (Dash), so I wanted to avoid adding measures.  You can format within the Result Options:

How do you do custom formatting for this e.g. mmmm yyyy

And if attempting to use Value instead yields: "Adding dynami values is't supported in this application." XX

 

Then what?

The "+ VALUE" button sometimes see a measure, sometimes does not see it. 

 

What can be done with it?

I face this issue i created a new measure but it is not showing inside the +value box. Did you find a solution for this??

No, I did not find yet.

Nice solution, but how do we now get rid of that pesky blue underline?
