Year seems wrong in Timeline slicer when Fiscal year starts at month other than Jan

 

Hi,

 

I have been using the wonderful slicer 'timeline 2.1.0'.

 

It was working perfect, but it seems it has been woking wrong since at least a couple of weeks ago.

 

When the start month of the fiscal year is set to Jan, it's alright.

But when it's set to other than Jan, the year seems that of 1 year ago.

In the above image, 2019 Oct actually means 2018 Oct, where the start month of the fiscal year

is set to April.

If I set the start month to January, it works fine.

 

Does anybody know anything about above?

 

Thanks,

Shinya

Hi shtak,

You need to know Fiscal Year is different from calendar year, so when you use Fiscal  Year in timeline, you will get the different date from calendar year. So if you want to use Fiscal Year to calcultae result, you could create relationship between fiscal date and factbale table, Then I think you will get the correct result.

By the way, I want to know whatis wrong you get when you use fiscal year? Could you please inform me in details?

Best Regards,

The problem is that as soon as you select a different fiscal month, the year Labeled in the Timeline is not the correct year. it switch to year+1

This seems to be an intentional feature, if you add in 2 financial years worth of data it makes sense. It just doesnt if there is only one years data.
