How do I use the previous value for the reference in the Indicator?  when I choose previous value it is displaying the same number.  I have multiple entries in a related table associated to an event ( 1 to many) and trying to calculate the difference from the current and previous value.

Hello. Still no answer to this? It would be very helpful to see an example of how to use it. Thanks.

I think the Problem we're all facing is, that in an time based dataset the reference "previous value" is not referencing to the previous feature. Instead it is pointing to the actually feature.

Data

2020-03-28 | 15

2020-03-29 | 16

2020-03-30 | 17

I get 17 as value and 17 as previous value

Dear Derek Law‌, Dear ArcGIS Dashboards team, do you have any example for this - previous value? I am facing the same behavior, and I don´t see the usage for Previous value option in reference.

Thank you.

Hi Alisan,

> How do I use the previous value for the reference in the Indicator?  when I choose previous value it is displaying the same number. I have multiple entries in a related table associated to an event ( 1 to many) and trying to calculate the difference from the current and previous value.

I am not clear on what you're trying to do; especially in the context of the related table.

FYI, when configuring an Indicator element > Data > Reference > Reference Type = "previous value" does not mean that it will reference the previous record in your data layer. It refers to the value/number displayed on the indicator before the last refresh interval was applied.

Hope this helps,

Dear Derek Law‌,

thank you so much for clarification. Just one more clarification. The refresh interval refers to refresh interval set on layer in WebMap in CDN cache settings in feature layer? 

Thank you again.

Have a great day!
