About System Parameters

Each workbook contains system parameters that you can use when you want a workbook to contain data based on the user's system information such as current date or time.

System parameters are independent of the workbook's dataset or subject area, and are designed to cover the most common parameters use cases so that you don't have to create these parameters for each workbook.

In the workbook's Parameters tab, you can hover over a system parameter to view its definition. You can't add, modify, or delete a workbook's system parameters.

The system parameters are:

  • Current Date
  • Current Time
  • Current DateTime
  • Display Name
  • User Name
