Would you like to see more time periods in your Time Scale Values?


Have you seen the warning
‘The time periods requested do not exist’?

Refer to the article TEC439086 which explains why you see the warning and how you can configure your views to get around the warning,

There is an approved extension that will expand your Time Scale Value date range.


In the Out of the Box configuration the date ranges are as follows:

28 Daily - One week in the past, the current day and 3 weeks in the future
16 Weekly - 2 weeks in the past, the current week and 13 weeks in the future
36 Monthly - 4 quarters in the past, the current quarter and 7 quarters in the future
Year, Quarter and Monthly periods all use monthly slices


With the extension, the new internal time slice ranges will be as follows:

42 Daily - 7 days in the past, the current day and 4 weeks in the future
45 Weekly - 4 weeks in the past, the current week and 40 weeks in the future
51 Monthly - 4 quarters in the past, the current quarter and 12 quarters in the future
Year, Quarter and Monthly periods all use monthly slices

The extension is a simple .xml file which gets applied to your Clarity instance. Support can provide you with the file (or request the extension for On Demand customers.)  All you need to do is enter a case to request the TSV Extension.


Note: This is the only approved extension for TSV date ranges.
