Growth over time using "metric" and "table" visualizations

This kind of request is fairly common, but we don't have a great solution for you. It's a high priority for us to support this kind of calculation in Lens, so I have been planning out this work.

There is a workaround which you can do in the TSVB editor: if you set your time range to 2 years, and your time interval to 1 year, you can use the "serial difference" function to get the "previous" value. Screenshot here with example:
