TREND COMPARISON PLOT
The trend comparison plot compares monthly values of Actual and Plan (or of actual and previous year) showing the differences with red and green areas for all the months in the dataset.
If the dataset has Actual and Plan information, the plot will show the monthly difference between Actual and Plan with a "red equals bad" and "green equals good" color scheme both at the total level...
and for each dimension.
If the dataset does not have Plan information, the chart will compare the last 12 months of Actual to the corresponding 12 months of the Previous Year.
If the date of most recent information is not equal to December, the chart will plot the months reordered showing the most recent 12 months.
By default the app will plot only one metric, not all. You can choose which metric to plot at the dimension level with this dropdown .
