How do I align the FY Correctly so that 10/1/2020 = the start of FY2021?

Currently the FY is set to start on OCT, however the years do not properly align, the years are behind.

Answered question

Is anyone else seeing my question? I just want to make I posted correctly! Thanks


Greetings medwards!
I tried something yesterday after posting and things are a bit better with the layout today.
There is a screenshot attached and I’ve blocked out all of the names for company’s sake.
However, you can clearly see at least the date range is lining up better.
Prior to this attempt instead of 2019 at the beginning of the timeline it showed 2018!
As mentioned before none of the start dates in our database have 2018 in them at all!

Please note: This update isn’t perfect – but it’s much better than before!
At least the dates are lining up now – but when I try to shift the fiscal year start month to October – things still go ‘off the rails’ – I would consider that feature to still be buggy.
For example: If I set the fiscal year start to October – the entire timeline shifts again to put January 2018 back as the start-point – for now I’m leaving it to January. <shrug>

Steps I took:
I made sure I wasn’t logged in anywhere to the xviz site and went through the following link:

Gantt Chart – Enterprise

Goto the FREE section on the left and hit the ‘Get It Free’ button.
Pop in your Email and the Download will start.
The most recent copy that I received yesterday was:


Under the Visualizations section in PowerBI for xviz goto: Format –> Timeline
I set the following: Enable Top-Level in Timeline ‘On’, Enable Mid-Level in Timeline ‘On’, Enable Low-Level in Timeline ‘Off’.

I also went in to the ‘edit’ section on the report itself to ‘ZoomLevels’ and set:
Top Level = Year (1), Middle Level = Month (1), Bottom Level = Week (7)
*However, week is not shown due to turning that off in the Format section as mentioned before.

I hope this might come of some use to you and like you say – hopefully dev is OK and more updates are coming!
