Hi,

It depends on what you want to achieve.

If you need to display a date + or - X days, it does not exist out of the box in Sisense. You can always use a Javascript script in your widget to do this.

If you want to get the value of a KPI for date + or - X days, you can use the time windows functions : pastyear/pastmonth/pastweek/pastday or next and prev that can be used to get the KPI value at a relative date.

For example, the values of Revenue 21 days ago you can use : ([Total Revenue],prev([Days in Date],21)). This will give the Total Revenue 21 days before the date in the current context.

Best, David

Hi,

Well, we register a date and let's say an action has been placed on 31-5-2024 and we need to know the date of plus 21 days. From that registrated date, because then the next thing in the process needs to get started. But with the available fx I can't find a why to visualize it in that way. We have about a hundred points in time that needs this calculation and I'm not ganno do it by hand haha. THere must be a way to do this, computersystems are smart enough for that I guess.

Hi Avery,

For your use case I think you should do the calculation in the datamodel. It seems to be more a process calculation, and you will be able to visualize it in the dashboards.

You can add a calculated column, DueDate, defined as adddays([RegisteredDate], 21)

Best, David.
