    This is not the case in my experience - I have logged out and logged back in, and it still defaults to the oldest year I have in the database. (In my case it's 2008.) In any case, it's silly to dismiss it by saying it already exists - the DEFAULT should be to show the current year, not to have the user change it and have it change going forward. It's bad UX and should be changed.

    Hello Antonia,

    On initial load, the default year will be the oldest year based on your data. Once you change it, on additional loads, the year you last selected will persist. So, once you change 2011 to 2016, it should default load with 2016 on subsequent visits. This is unique per user, so each person accessing Luminate Beta will experience this.

    Please reach out with any additional questions.
