Hi Community. I would like to explore the possibility of extending one of our models that currently has a 0 future periods. So far we created a new model each fiscal year, but now I am considering extending the future years. Besides the space and hard codded line items formulas what would be the other constraints?
#1. Consider your export Files, if your are okay with exporting 2 years data(Assume 1 Current year + 1 Future year) then its fine. But if you want to export only the current year , apply filters based on the rule.
#2. Also the time periods showed in dashboard, if you don't want to see future year or past month, apply filters.
#3. Use Time Ranges for reporting purpose, we can save space here.
All good points above, and just to add, it is easy to change any hard coded references (e.g. SELECT:Time.'FY19') to be flexible using LOOKUPs and a Time Settings module. Using this, along with the Current Period setting allows a lot of dynamic flexibility when it comes to filtering and reporting
