Publishing a Report with Dynamic Dates

Need help with the PBI service and dashboard not updating a today's date field.  I have created a report with the "NOW Date" and it changes dynamically in the desktop report.  So if I created the report on 7/31/2020 the date field with show todays date (9/15/2020) on the desktop report.  However, when I go to the dashboard or to the report in the workspace the date field continues to show 7/31/2020 even after the visual has been refreshed.

 

Need to know how to make todays date dynamic on the service and on the dashboard as it is on the desktop report where it was created.

Hi @Anonymous 

I think you can build a measure use Now() function and refresh the report, then you can see the dynamic time.

Measure = NOW()

Result is as below.
