Buckets are used to group time into smaller periods. The buckets are used for reporting, and also in the forecasting and inventory planning calculations.
You can populate these in three different ways:
|description||string||Free text description.|
|level||integer||Hierarchical indication. Higher numbers are used for detailed buckets, eg days. Lower numbers are used for coarse buckets, eg years.|
The bucket detail table define how the time horizon is divided in buckets.
When populating this table make sure to respect the following simple guidelines:
|bucket||string||References the bucket table.|
|name||name||Label for this time bucket in the user interface.|
|start date||dateTime||Starting date of the time bucket.|
|end date||dateTime||Ending date of the time bucket.|
