How would I display the PREVIOUS month on a dashboard? I have report panels that run for the previous month, and I want to show that month and year in a single value panel above each report.

Thanks!

Try something like this for your single value panel search

| gentimes start=-1 | eval lastmonth=strftime(relative_time(now(),"-1mon"),"%b %Y") | table lastmonth

Thanks! This works! It just seems to take a long time to run for some reason.

Strange. These (gentimes and now() both) are one of the fastest command I've seen (auto-generating command, doesn't access any index).

I added |head 1, and everything is just fine.

Thanks!
