Cautions
  • Since the snapshots capture data at the end of each period, data changes are picked up as they occur. These changes are not applied to previous periods, to preserve the accuracy of the snapshot as a view of the data at a point in time. There may therefore be cases where data (such as a birthdate) appears incorrectly in an early period, and appears correctly in later snapshots after it was corrected in the source system.
