Store front end selections in Variableby using Concat(GetFieldSelection(Fieldname),',').

And use that variable in backend

My variable description is Concat(GetFieldSelections(Quarter),',') and name is q_selection

I want to make a column using it i.e. quarter-1 as previousquarter.

then again previous quarter calculation you can do at front end and then use that in concat().

For quarter field create Previous Quarter Field in Backend.

and for quarters selection you can use Concat( {<QuarterField = p(QuarterField)>} PreviousQuarterField,',')

So basically we can do manipulations based on filter selections in front end only

You can manipulate in Backend also if you are selecting only one value in frontend
