  1. Click btn_system_designer.png to open the System Designer.

  2. Open the Lookups section and find the Period types lookup.

  3. Click New.

  4. Enter the name of a new period type, e.g., “Half-year”.

  5. Click btn_com_apply.png and save the changes.

  6. Open the Lookups section again and find the Periods lookup.

  7. Click ViewSet up fields to display and add the “Period type” column to the section list. Click Save.

  8. In the lookup list, click New and populate the name, period type, the start and end dates for the new period (Fig. 1).

  9. Add the missing periods up to the end of the current year. For example, with a period that is six months long, you will only need two periods.

    As a result, new periods become available for your forecasts.
