timedMovingAverage() function

timedMovingAverage() returns the mean of values in a defined time range at a specified frequency.

For each row in a table, timedMovingAverage() returns the average of the current value and all row values in the previous period (duration). It returns moving averages at a frequency defined by the every parameter.

Aggregate by calendar months and years

every and period parameters support all valid duration units, including calendar months (1mo) and years (1y).

Aggregate by week

When aggregating by week (1w), weeks are determined using the Unix epoch (1970-01-01T00:00:00Z UTC). The Unix epoch was on a Thursday, so all calculated weeks begin on Thursday.
