Date-part dimensions calculated with SQL expressions

  1. add new dimension with Type=Field
  2. fill Name with some unique value: say, "date_column_year"
  3. add one Parameter which should be a date-part Snowflake SQL expression:
    • For year: YEAR(date_column)
    • For month: MONTH(date_column) + Format={0:MMM} (Jan, Feb etc) or {0:MMMM} (January, February etc)
    • For day: DAY(date_column)
    • For day-of-week: DAYOFWEEKISO(date_column)-1 + Format={0:ddd} (Mon, Tue etc) or {0:dddd} (Monday, Tuesday etc)
    • For quarter: QUARTER(date_column)
