Multiple Date Dimensions

You can create multiple date dimensions in a model, and use them together in stories. For example, you could create two date dimensions to analyze shipping dates and order dates.

The date dimensions appear on the Fiscal Time tab in the Model Preferences:

For planning models with multiple date dimensions, the first date dimension is used by default for planning, but you can choose a different date dimension in the model preferences.

The Fiscal Year switch determines whether that date dimension is based on a calendar year or fiscal year.
