Time ranges follow existing rules for subsidiary views: a subsidiary view will be created for any line item whose dimensionality differs from module level dimensionality in any respect (analogous to list subsets).
If a line item has a quarter timescale, then quarter totals should be enabled at module-level to get a sensible overall view.
Line item dimensionality
In Blueprint (or Model Settings > Modules > Modules and Model Settings > Modules > Line Items), there are two columns: Time Scale and Time Range:
- Time Range specifies the extent of the time range. The options displayed are: Not Applicable (in which case Time Scale is also Not Applicable), Model Calendar, or time ranges.
- Time Scale specifies leaf-level granularity of line item data. Valid settings depend on two things: which aggregation levels have been chosen for the selected time range; and the Calendar Type (for example, Week is not available with a Calendar Months timescale).
This table summarizes the granularities available:
