I am facing an issue in my dashboards. As soon as I have changed the time ranges created that were applied in different modules on opening of the new budget cycle.Certain tables that were published have disappeared and some tables that were published with time ranges in columns have got updated with new time ranges whereas others have not.
This has left me highly confused on how to publish my dashboards having time ranges displayed in columns (whether with a saved view or by hiding manually on the dashbaoards) so that when the next year the new cycle is opened the tables are updated automatically. Please guide me with best practices to follow with this respect.
I believe all you are seeing is caused by time synchronization.
So let's take the issues one at a time.
The normal behavior is that when you change the time selection anywhere in the model, the change will be reflected everywhere in the rest of the model unless you have applied a time filter to a module/chart. In this case, the module/chart will respect the filter settings
What is the behavior you are expecting when you open the dashboard?
What is the Time Synchronization Setting for the grids that "disappear"? You can find that info as in the screenshot below.

It depends how have you published your grids on the dashboard. If you have used Hide/Show in some of the grids then those grids will not be updated automatically. Make sure that you have Dynamic Time Filters applied only without Show/Hide.
I have these two tables published on dashboards by creating saved views in the module. How do you suggest me to publish them so that they get updated with the changed time ranges automatically and we do not have to be publish them repeatedly again.
FYI: We have time range in column then the line items in column and brands in rows.
Your second module must be updated dynamically whereas first module ain't. That is because you have created subsidiary views within a module and used Show/Hide to pull off that kind of view.
Is there any chance that you can take the reporting line items out of the module and show that in a separate module just next to it as it doesn't change with time. And apply Time filter on COGS line item which will be dynamic in nature
