Re: data interpretation problem

You want your x-axis to be weeks?

Deal is a column?

1)like this ? 2017-03-03


2) Deal-Deal created 2017-03-02 23:00:50 is a column?

Try this:

as a dimension :

1) week(date# (Deal,(YYYY-MM-DD))

2)week(timestam# (Deal,(YYYY-MM-DD hh;mm:ss))

Re: data interpretation problem


There are few options how you can do that.

If I understood you correctly, you will need to have a report based on Weekly dimension.

One of the options: Create a new field from your "Deal Date" field as Week() function, for example

Week([Deal created]) as Weekly_Deal_Created_Dim

Use the same Expression (sum(Deal_Count), or else... ) and use the Weekly_Deal_Created_Dim as your chart's dimension.

So this approach requires extra steps, but it's reliable and very good performance-wise.

If script modification is not applicable in your case, use a Week([Deal created]) as Calculated dimension in your chart.

Should work fine too, but chart's performance will not be as good as with the approach above.
