Default time dimension on User Data Entry Screen

Currently on the data entry screen for a user-entered measure the time dropdown defaults to current period. Is it possible to default that to the last 12 months?

Thanks.

There's currently no setting to change that. If you're averse to changing code then it's not possible to change it.

Or you can change a line in measures_entry_filters.htm to alter the default.
      populateFilterBoxes(commobj, document.getElementById("meas_dims").value, 'TIM_CURR', true) ;

replace TIM_CURR with the internal name of the Time Range you want to use. To indicate it is a Time Range you should prefix TIM_.

So for example to use last 12 months you would change it to 'TIM_12MM'

I just tested this and confirm it works.

This customization can be put into pmfcustom since it uses HTMLFORM. But note this panel will certainly change with the 5.3 release so the customization would need to be re-implemented.

Quite fortunate that it takes a mere 10 seconds to do.
