Unfortunately, it seems there's no improvement in Autocalendar feature in Qlik Sense 3.0.
There's no way to have a year comparison using dual function as the value displayed is the year but the calculated value is a date (first day of the year). So, in demonstration there's no easy way to rapidly have that kind of comparison
script generated :
Dual(Year($1), YearStart($1)) AS [Year] Tagged ('$axis', '$year'),
works nice with this syntax :
Year($1) AS [Year] Tagged ('$axis', '$year'),
It would be nice too to choose the calendar language and if we need or not a calendar on each date fields.
Of course, we can break the generated script... but not so friendly to use.
