Time Range

Selecting a Time Range defines a scope in time the visualization uses to measure cost.

Using the Period Comparison visualization enables you to select a current timeframe (day, month, 6 months, etc) and compare its previous timeframe interval. For example, the below screenshot shows a current 6 month period comparison of May 16, 2018 – November 15, 2018 and a previous 6 month interval of November 16, 2017 – May 15, 2018.
