Fiscal Years Done Right

Like many companies, we have a fiscal year that differs from calendar (Oct-Sep in our case). It would be fantastic if this was natively supported instead of requiring a separate date table be created and relying on things like periods (P01 P02) to sort months correctly.

Things like:

  • wherever you have a feature like “last X years/quarters”
  • Sorting of months within years (i.e. Fiscal 2022 Oct Nov Dec Jan Feb…)
  • Add Fiscal dates to visualizations with ease without needing to use periods.

Benefit would be to simplify things making BI reporting consistent with financial reporting from ERPs.

I like this improvement but found a fairly straight forward work around. Maybe publishing the workaround would be a good idea?
