2020 Week 26: How does the company perform in the fiscal year?


Calendar years run from January 1st until December 31st, but an organization’s fiscal year might start in a different month. In this week’s challenge, a company’s fiscal year runs from October 1st through September 31st. Let’s see how this company performs.
Configure your workbook as follows: 


  • Dashboard size: 800 x 500
  • # of Sheets – up to you
  • Set the default fiscal year to start on October 1st.
  • Build a dashboard that shows the Sales and OPP values.
    • Sales: Account Number starts with 5
    • OPP: Account Number starts with 5 and 696
  • Create a horizontal bar chart – for Sales and OPP value – that shows the Current FYTD Period and the line that represents the Prior FYTD Period/Budget based on a Parameter Selection.
  • Show the exact differences and % differences between the Current and Prior Period/Budget as KPIs.
  • The color of the Current Period is based on the % difference. If the Revenue is less than Budget then it is a Red.
      • Difference > 5% |  # 008682 – Green
      • -5% = < Difference <= 5 % | # FFE00A – Yellow
      • Difference < – 5% | # D81159 – Red
  • Allow the user to set the Budget of Sales and OPP in million. Show these parameter boxes only when the FYTD vs. Budget FYTD is selected.
  • Create a line chart – for Sales and OPP value – that shows the Current and Prior Monthly Period.
      • FY 2019 #6C6C6C – Dark Grey
      • FY 2020 #5557EB – Purple
