To set up the calendar options, go to the "Calendar" section in the navigation menu of your Application.
2 types of calendar
First, you will need to select the type of calendar you want. Since some weeks can be split between two months, we have built in two types of calendar for you to chose from: the standard calendar (Gregorian), or a week-by-week calendar. If you tend to look at your data on a weekly basis, select the "Week" option.
You can then pick the first month of your fiscal year.
These dimensions refer to how your company analyzes data over time.
You may analyse your company data per "day", "month", "quarter" and/or "year". Here is where you select as many time dimensions as you want.
Note that week isn't in the list. If you want to select "week" you must change the calendar type to the "week" option. In this case, you will then only be able to select "day" and "week" dimensions.
Definition of period
Then, define a start and an end date.
You can update time dimensions and the start and end dates later but note that, once set up, calendars can only be extended, they cannot be reduced.
Once you are satisfied, click on "Create calendar dimensions". You can then go to "blocks" in the navigation bar and you will see the new dimensions created.
