L1MB Time and Versions
Right now I am on part 3 of the L1MB training course and I had a question about switchovers. The directions are as follows.
Configured the Time settings for your model correctly.
- Calendar Type: Calendar Months/Quarters/Years
- Fiscal Year Start Month: Jan
- Current Fiscal Year: FY20: 1 Jan 2020 - 31 Dec 2020
- Number of Past Years: 1
- Number of Future Years: 1
- Current Period: Jan 20
- Do not include any totals or summaries
And configured the Version settings for your model correctly.
- Three versions: Actual, Budget, Forecast
- Current version: Forecast
- Switchover: None
My problem is with my Switchover column. When I follow the instructions to the letter, it leaves me with a Switchover of Dec 19 in my Forecast list. As you can see, it wants my Switchover to be "None" or blank. I went through Anapedia and couldn't find anything to switch it to "none" other than in the Time settings. My guess is that it has a Switchover of Dec 19 because we're including one year into the past. The only way I was personally able to to have my Switchover as blank was when I deleted the Forecast list and remade it. I don't know if this was the correct way or if this could potentially damage data in the future, since there's technically no data on it at the moment, or if there is another to fix my Switchover that I am unaware of. Any help would be greatly appreciated on this topic.
