# How to move date position before receiver address in scrlttr2 letter?

I can move the date position by playing around with vspace, like this:

#+LATEX_HEADER: \setkomavar{date}{\flushleft\vspace{-\baselineskip}\today\par


However, no matter which value I pick, the date still does not move above the receiver. I only care about the vertical position. How do I do this?

If there is only the date in refline:

\documentclass[refline=dateleft]{scrlttr2}

% visualize the position of address and refline
