Q1 of 2016 vs Q1 of 2017

I would like to do the comparisons between the current month vs last month ,
Q1 of this year vs previous year etc . what i can see that we can create individual questions and add them together in the Dashboard . But it will be helpfull if there is a filtering options to choose the quarter alone ( something like filtering Q1 will give all the Q1’s across different years similarly for months too ) .
I hope this problem arises as we can apply one filter at a time like either Q1,2016 or Q1,2017 . Is there anyway possible to do mutiselect in a filter values .
As i was able to see the multiselect in the questions Filter , where there is a option to check the values (check boxes) . It will be helpfull if the same is provided in the Dashboard .
