FOR PreviousPeriod

The FOR PreviousPeriod function is similar to FOR Previous functions unless the adaptable functions adapt to the context of the insight by hand.

Even though the metric is defined as FOR PreviousPeriod({attribute/quarter}), for example, the function returns values from the previous month, as month is the most granular date attribute in this insight.

Syntax

SELECT … FOR PreviousPeriod(…,…)
SELECT metric FOR PreviousPeriod(time_attribute)

Examples

SELECT {metric/payment} FOR PreviousPeriod({attribute/quarter})
SELECT {metric/payment} FOR PreviousPeriod({attribute/quarter}, 2)
