While creating a report, you will need to set the report date range which you can choose from various options in the report wizard, step #3:
You can choose from the frequently used date ranges on the left, or you can set a custom date.
Comparison periods provide a practical way to grasp data insights by allowing you to compare similar timeframes. When you specify a predefined date range, you'll have two comparison choices:
"Previous Period" lets you compare with the time just before. Here's an example:
Think of a situation where you're dealing with a 3-day week or month that's not complete. In this case, you'd compare it to the first 3 days of the prior week or month, not the whole week or month.
In the same way, "Previous Year" allows you to compare data with the same period from the previous year. This approach provides valuable insights into data trends over time.
