2085938 - Rolling Year Time Dimension - WFA

Symptom

  • Article explains that "Time Period Rolling Year" alongside "Time Period Calendar" and "Time Period Fiscal" cannot be used together. There is a suggestion on what to do.
     

Question/Issue:

  • Is it possible to have "Time Period Rolling Year" alongside "Time Period Calendar" and "Time Period Fiscal" on the Analytics site?

Environment

  • Workforce Planning and Analytics

Resolution

  • No, but there is another way to utilise rolling years.
     
    Rolling year totals add or average the last 12 months (or more, e.g. in "rolling 3 years") up to the selected month, whether you are viewing by year, quarter or month.  This means that a single month will be included in the totals for multiple overlapping periods of all three lengths.  A dimension by itself is not capable of this.
     
     
  • To achieve rolling year totals requires a "Rolling Year" variant of each measure you plan to use in this way.  The first step to achieving this is to make a complete list of the measures for which you would like this done, and submit it with your initial development request.
