Issue/Introduction

Per-Period Metrics functionality in New UI is not returning appropriate data when relative dates (eg. Current Period, End of Current Year)  are used for 'Start Period' and 'End Period'

Cause

If fiscal time periods configured in your system does not follow calendar time periods. Below is an example for the same.

Environment

Release : 16.0.2

Component : Clarity MUX UI Usability

Resolution

The Start of Current Year and End of Current Year drop down values in Per-Period Metrics are designed to use the Start Date and Finish Date from active Fiscal time periods configured in the system. The column 'Period Year' in fiscal time periods is matched with Standard calendar year.

If the fiscal time periods configured in your system do not follow the standard calendar time periods you always have an opportunity to select individual periods from drop down instead of Current Period and End of Current Year. So you will be able to filter the data for time periods as per your requirement.

Example:

Instead of 'End of Current year' you can select 'Dec 1, 2022-Dec 31, 2022'
