Converting Week numbers into date ranges


I've got some quarterly data that I'd like to format a bit. I'd like to change the "week-1 2015" labels (see attached image) to something like "Jan 1-7 2015" etc. I can't seem to find which beast mode formula I could use to accomplish this. Thanks in advance!

    no you can't shift it with the out of the box functionality. You would have to load it in as part of your dataset or build a beast mode but you will lose the time grain functionality if you build a customer date field. 


  • Are you starting with raw dates and the "week-1 2015" is generated by the domo card or does the raw data have a column with "week-1 2015" in it?

  • I am starting with raw dates that domo is transforming into "week-1 2015"

  • Is it possible to shift this around to start on a different day of the week other than Sunday? In other words, look at Friday-Thursday instead of Sunday-Saturday.

  • @CantStopTheHopp, did Godzilla's response help address your follow-up question?

  • Yes that is what I was thinking but was wanting to confirm. Fortunately it wasn't a crucial need so I'm not going to bother looking into it further.

  • good stuff! Thank you!

  • This solution doesn't work when comparing Y-o-Y data :(
