How to define YEAR to work as date

Hi! I'm very new at Metabase... and quite lost :frowning:

My data has only YEAR (no month, no day), how Can I define it to work as date?
I've tried to put any date format in TYPE

but the result is wrong.
It has worked when I defined year (ANY) as number, but then time series is not really nice (it creates "automatic groups"...)

What should I do?

Hi @AQuer
Please post "Diagnostic Info" from Admin > Troubleshooting.
"automatic groups" is called binning/binned/granularity in Metabase, so you select Unbinned, then there's no "grouping" done to the data.
