Based on the select of the user you have an only way which is Presentation variables, what is so low in perfomance way, maybe you could use an EVALUATE FUNCTION, and create your custom function to make all the logical calculated in the database, it could improve in the performance.

Yes. Request variables + RPD is definitely a more proper way to go since you create reusable objects rather than hacking things in the presentation catalog.
So basically presentation variables are NOT the only way you have...
I'm not sure I understand the issue. Would you not simply create the metrics in the RPD, and then display them on the dashboard? And whatever date the user picks, the metrics would automatically calculate? Feel like I'm missing something.
Yes cristhian is right, sorry i forgot about the Request Variables,
