Adam Georgeson Posted January 28, 2020 Share Posted January 28, 2020 (edited) Need to clarify the difference between a "calendar month" (per an actual calendar) and a "normalized month" (365/12) Example screenshots: 1. I set the time window to 1 month, starting January 1st at 12:00am. It ends January 31st at 10:00am. This is a "normalized month" 2. I do an integral over months, UTC-12:00. It resets on the 1st of each month at 6:00am. This is a "calendar month". 3. If I manually type in "6 months," it is 1/1/2020 12:01am to 7/1/2020 1:01pm. However if I manually type in "26 weeks" it is automatically converted by Seeq to "6 months" and it is 1/1/2020 12:01am to 7/1/2020 1:01am. The length of the 6 months is different! Here's the real kicker: I manually type in 6 weeks and it is automatically converted by Seeq to "6 months". I then manually type in "6 months". The time scale doesn't change, it still ends at 7/1/2020 1:01am. So the length of the "6 months" that I entered depends on the previous state of the chart. Same thing happens for a year. One year is 365 days (or 366 days for a leap year). It is not 52 weeks * 7 days = 364 days. It would greatly help us to get these time frames resolved. Contracts and accounting run on true calendar months and years. 3 How long is six months.pdf 1 Normalized Month.pdf 2 Calendar Month.pdf Edited January 28, 2020 by Adam Georgeson PNG graphics were fuzzy.
