Timeframe comparisons

You can select a timeframe comparison to compare your current workspace data to data from a different date range. This is useful for week-over-week or month-over-month comparisons, for example.

Selecting comparison

Compare metrics from a previous time frame using the "Select comparison" tool.

Once you select a time comparison, the metrics from the comparison timeframe will appear as a dashed line in your metrics chart. The gross change and percent change between the two timeframes appear beneath each metric.

Original timeframe is March 23 - April 5
Comparison timeframe is March 9 - March 23
Change in revenue is +$23.70m, or +23.92%Original timeframe is March 23 - April 5
Comparison timeframe is March 9 - March 23
Change in revenue is +$23.70m, or +23.92%

Original timeframe is March 23 - April 5
Comparison timeframe is March 9 - March 23
Change in revenue is +$23.70m, or +23.92%

In the above example, the original timeframe is March 23 - April 5 (fourteen days). After selecting to compare "Previous Time Period", the chart updates to include a dashed line showing revenue from March 9 - March 23 (fourteen days directly before the original timeframe). Revenue has increased by a gross $23.70m, or +23.92%, when compared to the prior two weeks.

The dimensions panel also shows percent difference in a chosen metric, broken down by each dimension value. Metrics automatically update when a new timeframe is chosen.

If we drill into the last four days of the previous example, we can get a clearer view of the recent revenue increase.

Comparison timeframes include:

  • Previous Time Period: Shift back one full time period
    • March 12-16 vs. March 8-12
  • Previous Day: Shifts time period back one day
    • March 12-16 vs. March 11-15
  • Previous Week: Shifts time period back seven days
    • March 12-16 vs March 5-9
