Comparing Month Year Across Different Years in the KPI Visual

Hello all! 

 

I am having trouble comparing different years in the KPI visual. When I select Month and Years that are in the same year, the KPI visual shows the current information as shown in this screenshot.

However, when comparing Month Years that go across different years (2019 vs. 2020), the KPI visual only shows data for 2020.

I have the trend axis set to Year. Is there a way for me to add something like a "Century" column in my Date table which would allow me to compare 2019 and 2020 data in the same KPI visual? Currently, it only shows data for the most recent year (2020). 

 

Here is the current setup to my KPI visual: gpa0RU5.png

 

Alternatively, are there any custom KPI visuals that allow me to skip the trend axis and just compare the raw numbers of Total Form Fills & Previous Period Form Fills? I am not interested in the trend visual in the KPI, just the comparison of the 2 numbers and the % difference of these numbers. I also like how the number is green if the Form Fills are greater than the Previous Period Form Fills and red if it is lower than the Previous Period Form Fills. 

 

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Hi @loganriebel ,

 

How are you calculating the Previous Period value? 

 

Depending on the way you select the information the values may loose context and return only current year.

 

If you could share a sample file and expected outcome would be great.
