    This is also a real issue for our company and can only be resolved by Microsoft. The only solutions/workarounds that are possible will either avoid using relative dates all together or a formula that will only fix the issue for a particular relative time frame.

    The main problem is that an individual only know to do this once they have been burned. There is almost no way to know intuitively beforehand. The current implementation is deceptive as the intended behavior changes as you publish it to the service. There are many ways that this can be resolved or made more explicit. Microsoft needs to implement one of them ASAP.

    Be sure to raise an issue through your support contract. This should be treated as a bug and not a feature request.

    I do not believe that the comment/formula below will work correctly in most circumstances.

    "UTC Time = IF(hour(NOW()) < 11,[Date]-1,[Date])"

    Reason being is the the relative dates for which to compare are calculated on the service before being compared to your data. For example, assuming UTC is ahead of your local time zone, the relative filter "Last Month (Calendar)" would prematurely flip over to looking at next month's data. The suggested formula approach could only fix the data for a particular relative time frame at best. This issue is exclusively on the service and can only be fixed by Microsoft. Truly, is a bug fix request and not a feature enhancement.
