Custom field in date hierarchy

I have a requirement for a custom field to be included in a date hierarchy, can anyone advise if this is possible?


Instead of quarters, the client divides a year into 3 so Jan-Apr = T1, May-Aug = T2 & Sept - Dec = T3.


Is it possible to force T1, T2, T3 to be date fields so they can be included in a date hierarchy & slicer?

Hello @wynhodgkiss ,

You can create a custom conditional column in edit query and map  Jan-Apr = T1, May-Aug = T2 & Sept - Dec = T3 in the custom column.

Then drag and drop the newly created custom column in the date heirarchy.


Please mark it as solution if it helps you.
