Retrieving information about EPS forecasts

Hi, I am using the following formula to get the EPS forecast by analysts:

ek.get_data('EVTC.K', ['TR.EPSEstValue.date','TR.EPSEstValue.analystname', 'TR.EPSEstValue.value'], parameters={'SDate':'2019-12-01', 'EDate':'2020-12-31'})

it works great, but the problem is:

I think the date here is the date of publishment of the earning report? So how can I know which time period was the forecast about? (2020Q1 2020Q2 or 2020FY?)

Here's the first few rows of the output:


Thank you for your help!

I think you can add periodenddate output.
