Difference between Non-Time Series Functions and Time Series Functions

According to this mini demo, time-functions are divided into two categories: non-time series functions and time series functions.

Non-time series functions include: 

  • ADDMONTHS, DATE, DAYS, END, INPERIOD, MONTHTODATE, START, YEARVALUE. etc.

Time series functions include:

  • PREVIOUS, NEXT, POST, LEAD, LAG, SPREAD. etc.

I don't understand the difference.

From what perspective, is this distinction made?

 

Thank you very much in advance,

It means that for TIME SERIES functions it is mandatory to have TIME as a dimension in your module whereas for NON TIME SERIES it is not mandatory to have TIME as a dimension.

 

Hope that helps
