Re: Filter Date Range

If you want to create a list of ranges like 'Last Month' and 'Last 6 Months' then you'll have to create a new field in the script for that.



    ...some fields...,


    12*(Year(Today())-Year(MyDate)) + Month(Today()) - Month(|MyDate) as MonthsAgo,

    ...some more fields...






MonthsAgo, DateRange

0, Current month

1, One month ago

2, Two months ago


12, Twelve months ago

1, Last three months

2, Last three months

3, Last three months

1, Last six months

2, Last six months

3, Last six months

4, Last six months

5, Last six months

6, Last six months

1, Last twelve months

2, Last twelve months

3, Last twelve months

4, Last twelve months

5, Last twelve months

6, Last twelve months

7, Last twelve months


11, Last twelve months

12, Last twelve months


You can then add the new field DateRange in a Filter Pane so users can select from those date ranges

Re: Filter Date Range

Yes it is possible.

You can have a list with dates and you can select by expression, par example, if you have list of days, you can write > 12/07/2016 in order to select dates in the range 13/07/2016 to 12/08/2016 (last month) ....
