By default, the application’s fiscal calendar starts in January. If your company’s fiscal year starts in another month, setting a custom fiscal calendar makes the ThoughtSpot date searches reflect your fiscal year.
Date formulas with the
fiscal option specified
will also reflect the fiscal year you set here.
When you set a custom fiscal year, you will designate the month on which your company’s fiscal year begins. All the date language will then reflect your change, so if someone searches for this quarter or q3, the answer will conform to the fiscal quarter in use. When you make this change, existing pinboards also change to reflect the custom fiscal calendar. Because of this, if you make this change after your users have been using ThoughtSpot for any period of time, you should alert them of the change you will be making and how it affects previous saved searches.
Contact ThoughtSpot Support, so they can help you set the custom fiscal year.
