When new updates are added to a tracking project, you likely want all your stories with time series data to update. The good news is, Harmoni gives you a choice when creating an analysis. You can create a static, point-in-time analysis, or an analysis that adds the latest time period when a new data update is completed.
In this article
1. Time series in the across dimension
When a whole time axis is dragged and dropped into the across dimension, and the analysis is saved to a story, the next time a data update occurs, your story will automatically add the latest time period.
If you want a static report for a fixed time period, drag only the time element(s) you require. As soon as you select specific elements from the time axis and save to a story, the report remains fixed.
2. Time series as a filter
Include a time period as a filter and you can also have your story update.
When you select the whole time axis as a filter, the last period filter is automatically ticked. When the next data update is completed, the story will also update to show the last time period in the axis.
- Use the Select menu to view the filter.
- The Last period filter is listed at the end of all the elements.
When you select one element from a time axis as a filter, the last period filter is not ticked. The story will display only the selected time period even when the data updates.
