Issue/Introduction

Hierarchy Timeline Smart Periods do not work correctly if Fiscal Periods do not exist for the current period/year in the Default Entity.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 

  1. Set up Weekly Fiscal Periods in the Default Entity, in Classic, for 2017 only 
  2. Go to the Hierarchy timeline
  3. Click on View Options and set the following:
    1. For Per-Period Metrics, select one or more per period metrics values (IE Allocation)
    2. Periods = Weeks
    3. Start Period = Current Period
    4. End Period = End of Current Year

Expected Results: Toast error message Fiscal periods of the requested period type for the plan duration do not exist is displayed as you see in modules such as Assignments. 

Actual Results: No error message is displayed, and the periods for 2017 are displayed (which is not expected for the period selected).
