Time frame comparison is available in the Analytics and Campaign modules.

To use the tool click the date range drop down in the top right corner of the screen while either in the Analytics or Campaign modules. 

Once clicked you will be prompted to select two date ranges. The top date range is what data will be displayed in the on the screen. The second date range, located below, will be the date range you are comparing the existing time frame to. 

The comparison tool will provide increase or decrease metrics next to current time frame’s performance. An increase, shown in green, means that the current date range is performing higher than comparison time frame selected. A decrease, shown in red, means the existing time frame is performing lower than the comparison range selected. Please note, in order to use time frame comparison inside the Campaigns module the campaign will need to have existed for 24 hours.
