Interesting Build request: other methods?


I had a scenario posed to me and took a stab at building it.  I would love to get any feedback or alternate methods of tackling this.



  1. Your user will be entering two number inputs
  2. These inputs will be in a module that has Months
  3. The user wants to see the numbers that they would need, month by month, to move in a linear fashion from the first number to the second number.
  4. They will see these numbers as points on a line chart, starting with the first number and ending at the second

My Method (with tweaks from @rob_marshall) (see screenshots and animated GIF)

Areas to improve: this method won't handle a period range that crosses a FY.  Boo.

    Hi @erik.bangsund ,


    I have made an attempt in achieving the linear chart in case the values entered fall across different years.

    Please check.

    Hope you can extend this to your case.


    Best Regards,




  • I see!  By removing time from those Line Items you can see beyond the end of the year.

    And using SELECT on TIME.All Periods.
