New Analyzer - Date Dimension not Showing



I have an Excel sheet that I'm pulling in. Now the data in Excel doesn't have a proper Date field as the query for date is year/month so the data shows as Ex. 2017-07. So no date fields technically don't exist in the dataset, to get around this I used a Beast Mode to turn that column into a Date field (just made each month be the 1st of the month so essentiall it changes is to Ex. 2017-07-01, which works fine and lets the card display as I want to, however I can't limit the date range of the card so everything is tiny since it goes back to 2014. I just want a rolling last 12 months.


Is it because you can't do Beastmodes as a date field range? This might not have to do with the New Analyzer or not, it just happens to be my first fresh card since the update.

    Try bringing the data into an ETL first, so that you can change the type of your date field to a date.  That should solve this issue.  


  • Was hoping to avoid another dataset but this does work, will go with that for now, thanks
