We submitted this is a CASE to BMC Support.  The end result was this DateFunction option DOES NOT WORK, and no plans to make this work.

BMC Support suggested we raise this as an IDEA.

Working with BMC Support, there wasn't a work around for this need.

I assume many others will need this functionality to make Reporting flexible and effective.


Using the "Submit Date" Remedy field and Assuming YellowFin documentation instructions applies to SR in use.

We need to add a Date Function field to a View, and get this error?

We are trying to create a Date Function field to show the Week Start on a report; i.e. 1/1/2018 versus 1st Week.

On the YellowFin User Guide, this is supposed to be possible.

Date Functions - Yellowfin Guide 7.3 - Yellowfin Wiki


How do we create a field on view, to show Week Start.


We don't want to see 23 or 23rd, but rather the first day of the business week, for which it was submitted:

We want to see June 4, 2017, which is Sunday, first day of this business week. (WeekStart date)
