Web template Bookmarks and variants

Here is my scenario.

I have built one generic web template. Users drilldown, filter, etc to get the view they want. Then they save as it as a bookmark. Works fine.

They also want to e-mail the bookmark (Distribute – By e-mail) to show up in their outlook everyday with just the current day’s data. However, it always runs with the date that was saved when the bookmark was created.

I tried using a variant (I added &variant=current_day) to the end of the url before saving the bookmark. But this does not work. The bookmark appears to hardcode the date value and not use the variant to pick up the current day. Similar situation for other time periods.

Has anyone encountered this? I really need to figure out how to do this because we do not want to build out personalized views for everyone. Having one generic template with personalized bookmarks would be wonderful if only we could pick up the desired dates at runtime.

Any advice would be very greatly appreciated.
