  • There is currently no option to sort the filter Date Range created.
  • When the tile is ran either via homepage or on the dashboard, the selected Date Range will be the only one available when Preset Date Range option is selected. It will not show all the available Date Range as similar to editing or configuring the tile on the Edit Tile-Dashboard /Analytics Tile Builder screen. The reason for this is that the Custom Date Range option can already set the date range you prefer.
