EDDIE/Web Intelligence Rich Client - Time Dimensions

Time dimensions can be added to objects or variables of type DATE or DATETIME.
The attributes automatically available are the Year, Quarter, Month, Week, and Day.
Semester is an attribute that is available, but due to the varied dates when a term can start and end, we don't have an accurate method to replace the defaults by the tool.
  • Locate the object you want to add a Time dimension to by clicking Document Objects in the Main panel.

Document Objects in Main panel

  • In this example, we'll create a Time Dimension on the OL Period Begin Date object.
  • Click the More icon and select Create Time Dimension.
