Reducing the points in a time series

I am trying to show about 4 years worth of analytics but when I do that, there are too many points on the chart. There was somewhere else, the ability to change the points from day->month->year. It would be very useful if I could show the information in other units.

Use 'dimensions'. I don't know how I overlooked it, it's in the right pane. 

 

But I'm not fearing something greater....NO EMAIL AUTOMATIC REPORTS?!???? rEALLY??

Some time dimensions are already broken down so you can display that way - in which case your in luck !  

 

If not , I have created the new dimensions by duplicating the time dimension and saving with new date format.  This seemed to work in most cases.
