Metrics Scorecard Can someone explain the tracking period options for the metrics?

Hello all,

 

I am a little bit confused. I know I can change the tracking period for the metrics in the scorecards and I know this does not affect the daily update of the data. But I see different options than the documentation provided me (this page https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/create-reports/service-goals-introduction).

Can someone explain what these options exactly mean and can someone explain me what the functionality is from the field label? Where do I see this label for example?

 

This screenshot is Dutch.

Hi @eddiewagt ,

 

Metrics in Power BI let customers curate their metrics and track them against key business objectives, in a single pane.

 

In my scorecard, the current value is 3 and next milestone is 7.

You can set tracking performance for this metric in time period.

 

For example, if you select "Cycle over cycle", this means metrics will show the change every week (in my example).

If you select "Cycle to date", this means metrics will show the change of month to date or year to date.

If you select "No cycle", this means metrics just show the change between this metric's last 2 data points.
