2607256 - Support for Calendar labels when Fiscal Period is used in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • Currently when fiscal periods are used in a model or story, only the non-specific fiscal period labels can be displayed (e.g. P01, P02, P03).
  • Need the ability to display the calendar period labels in the context where fiscal period is used (e.g. P01/2018 displayed as Oct/17).


SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.x.x

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to SAC tenant.
  2. Create a Chart story based on a model with Time dimension.
  3. Select Time dimension into Rows.
  4. Set Show Hierarchy as FYQP for Time dimension if it is not default selection in model level.
     => Non-specific fiscal period labels can be displayed (e.g. P01, P02, P03) in the chart.


This is limitation in current product version. It is not yet supported to display the calendar period labels for fiscal period.


The feature request has been submitted to SAC development team and it is already on roadmap.
