Scenarios can be set up using different time periods (Years, Fiscal Years, and Months) in order to be able to analyze and visualize that resource data over varying periods of time.
The time period selection for a scenario can only be changed when creating a new scenario, prior to entering resource data for existing scenarios or when only a single time period exists.
Once resource data is entered in, associated data can be tracked and viewed over time within Visualizations.

- User defined start year
- User defined number of time periods
A user can select any 12-month period starting with any month. The available options appear below:

- Q1 (Jan-Mar)
- Q2 (Apr-Jun)
- Q3 (Jul-Sep)
- Q4 (Oct-Dec)
