2086025 - Future time periods - WFA


  • If data exists for future time periods, e.g. planned headcount for the rest of the year, can it be represented on the site?


  • Workforce Planning and Analytics


  • Yes, by dedicating one time period option entirely to the function.
  • Future data cannot share a time period dimension with regular data reported up to the present, otherwise any measure which does not contain future data will display several empty months. 
  • A solution exists whereby Time Period Calendar is used for regular measures and Time Period Fiscal covers the required future months and is applied only to the measures with future data.
  • The drawback is that Time Period Fiscal cannot be used for the other measures, and Time Period Calendar cannot be used for the future measures.
