Hi,
I am new in Quantrix and wondering if I can make a timeline like
y1
y2
y3     { q1 q2 q3 q4}
Could you please help me?
Regards,
Davood

Hi Davood, you may consider creating one matrix with year (1,2) category and another matrix with year(3) and quarter categories. Then you can place and snap them on canvas for reporting.

Thank you for reply. What I indeed looking for is to have some years plus quarters just for the last year not all years

My fault as I realized I misunderstood your question. And I cannot delete my original answer.
You probably already know that you cannot use the timeline for this unless you collapsed the quarters you were not using/needing in y1 and y2. The other option is to create a category for year. Note what I did below by using on category, but grouping the 4 quarters for the final year.

This last option will work but for a large model where you might repeat in future years, it might get unwieldy.

I prefer using the Timeline functionality.
See the attached example which includes notes.
