Sorting a table by period on period percentage change

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a dashboard I update each month to show percentage increase/decrease of Social Media stats. My data source is made up of lists of page views, engagement figures, No. of followers etc by month. Up until now, I have been able to compare current month to previous month with no issues. However, now I am trying to compare March and April figures, the numbers are appearing correctly on the dashboard so the data source is working ok, but there is nothing showing up in the % columns and 'no data' appears under each (correct) number. Is there a bug? I haven't had this problem before.

 

Thanks,

Anna

Sounds like a bug, especially if it was working previously and suddenly stopped, this has been my experience with bugs thus far in DS.

 

Screenshots of Dashboard and Config settings would help troubleshoot further.

Hi there

OK thanks. Below are 2 screen shots - 1 of part of the Data Studio
Dashboard, which features all of the correct data but provides zero
comparison to the previous month ("no data") . The other screenshot is of
part of the Data Source, just to show how this has been set up. This is how
the data source has always been done and I've not had a problem like this
before.

I hope this can be fixed! Please advise.

Thanks,
Anna
