Year on year charts

We’re pleased to announce a new charting feature. ‘Year on year’ lets you take a standard date-based chart, e.g. sales opportunity numbers per month, over a number of years, and convert it into a ‘year-on-year’ chart, where only 12 months are displayed but each year’s values are shown as separate series.

In this way, the differences between each year can easily be seen.

Working on this project was also an interesting departure for us in that rather than developing internally, we used an overseas contractor, found on the www.upwork.com site – Jin Ming.

This seemed to work out pretty well and may well be something we do again if there are any short-term capacity needs for particular projects.

To set this up for a chart in your system, simply choose ‘year on year’ for the  date filter type, when setting up the chart:
