Store yesterday's cost as a Dimension

Create a column that stores yesterday's spend data as a Dimension so it can be compared with today's performance.

What can I do with this?

  • Compare today's performance vs yesterday
  • Highlight significant changes in performance day-over-day
  • View multiple date ranges together in the grid

Example
