Would like to include QTR's as an option when reporting on a timeframe

Currently when setting up reports, the following options are available:

  • Between
  • Before
  • After
  • Custom

Only the last one - Custom - Allows for non-date selections like Next Qtr, Last Qtr, etc.

I would like to have the same options for the all the selections (Between, Before, and After).

This would then allow me to create a dynamic rolling report that would should all active and shipped releases Between 'Last Qtr' and 'Next Qtr'.

 

See attached.

    Hi Joe, thank you for the idea. We're marking this Likely to implement regarding the need for the Between option for the type of rolling report you are requesting. I did want to mention quickly though that you can currently accomplish a rolling Before or After using the "More than X days ago" and "Less than X days ago" custom options. Thanks!

    Thanks Austin - but the X-days doesn't really work.  Example:

    I am in Q4. My management wants to know what has the status of our Releases are for the previous Qtr, and the Qtr ahead (Qtrs 3 and Q1 respectively). If I use the filter as you suggested (say) 90-days backward and forward, then I really only get a partial look at Q3.  In fact, on the the last day of Q4, the report will only show Releases from the last day of Q3, not ALL of Q3.
    Hence the need for this functionality.  Currently I have to use two independent reports to achieve the desired outcome.
