Explore features date calculations that help you to analyze results over a period of time. This calculated metric is configured in the Calculations menu ().
Date range calculated metrics create totals for a specified period of time. They are useful for looking at metrics with ranges that don't fit into a calendar period, such as the last seven days, the previous seven days, or dates that differ year-to-year like Easter.
When specifying the period of time for a date range calculated metric, you have two different options, simple and advanced.
With the simple option, you can select from a list of named periods or use Custom to select a specific calendar start and end day, month, or year.
With the advanced option, you can select separate beginning and end dates. For each beginning and end date, you can select from a list of named periods, enter in a calendar date, view all history, or select a rolling period. In a rolling period, you can select date ranges like seven days in the past or a year in the future.
You can also repeat the selected range.
