Change metrics workspace default lookback time

Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to reset default search time period inside the metrics workspace.

The default seems to be an hour, which is independent of default period set in the
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/ui-prefs.conf file which I've set to 1 day

[search]
dispatch.earliest_time = 1d@d
dispatch.latest_time = now

options that are provided in the config in
/opt/splunk/etc/apps/splunk_metrics_workspace/README/workspace.conf.example

seem to provide a lookback option
[metadata]
earliest = -1d

but this does not affect the lookback time indicate earlier.

Also the /opt/splunk/etc/apps/splunk_metrics_workspace/README/workspace.conf.spec
option does not seems to change the default -1hour lookback

[metadata]
earliest = -1m
#* Sets how far back to query the metrics catalog.
#* Shortening this could speed up the catalog query.
#* Default: -2d (?default seems to be 1 hour)

Does not change the default time,  beyond the README folder documentation seems limited, any help is appreciated,
