  • The unit Years has been added for Relative Timeframe selection.

    You can now view data for the last x years.

  • The option Next has been removed from the drop-down menu for Relative Timeframe. You now cannot enter a relative timeframe like Next 2 weeks. This is because the report does not support any futuristic data.
