Custom Calendar Compare View omits December 31st from year-on-year comparison

When comparing two years of report data using the Custom Calendar Compare View, one of the years being compared does not display data for December 31st. A start date of January 1st and an end date of December 31st were selected for both years before generating the report.


The Custom Calendar Compare View does not use the standard reporting periods, but instead stitches together consecutive daily reports for the range specified. In leap years, because there are a total of 366 days, the additional day will be omitted from the comparison because the year to which it is being compared will only have 365 days.


This is an artifact of the standard calendar itself. Any change would not be comparing like time periods
