    Hello Naidu,

    No, you cannot do this. Only 1 of the required dimension types (of which Time is one) can be used in an application.

    This section explains it in more detail:

    Required dimension types

    Every application is required to have one dimension of each of the following types: Account, Category, Entity, Time, Currency, and Intercompany. While a Currency-type dimension is required to be present in all application sets for validation purposes, it does not have to be part of any applications within the application set.

    In addition, you can create user-defined dimension types as well, which are referred to in the system as U1, U2, U3, and so on.

    Note that an application set can have multiple dimensions of one type, but each application within the AppSet can have only one of each of the required types. For example, the application set might have entity type dimensions named EntityB and EntityF, with EntityB used in the Budgeting application and EntityF in the Forecasting application.
