Time Comparison allows you to analyze customer behavior over two different time periods. You can view trends of any segment of your accounts and see how they performed during both time periods.
For example, you can analyze product usage by all accounts before and after a major feature enhancement release to understand if the adoption of the product was positively impacted by the enhancement or not. You can also compare usage, health or activity level of a certain account before and after a major improvement was made in the QBR process to evaluate the impact of that change on this account.
