I am having a really hard time trying to use the time intelligence features because our fiscal calendar is not based on a month to month basis. We have months that start in the prior month and end before the month ends.
Jan 12/30/2017 - 1/26/2018
Feb 1/27/2018 - 2/23/2018
and so on.....
When i use the YTD, MTD, SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR time intelligence functions they capture the entire month. So if i want to do MTD sales for January it is pulling 1/1/2018-1/31/2018 when i need it to pull 12/30/2017 - 1/26/2018.
I have my fiscal calendar table set up and set it as the date table and everything is good there but it will not capture the dates i need.
How can i use the time intelligence functions on my fiscal calendar? Is this something that cannot be done and i would have to revert to creating multiple measures (ex. for PY sales i would have to create a measure filtering out Jan) that seems a bit tedious and i am sure there is a better way to handle this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
